These are the best vehicles for social distancing
If these cars could come with a Hallmark card that reads, "When you don't want to be at home, but also shouldn't go out in public" (opens card) "Congratulations on your new car" they should. The models on this list offer many creature comforts, but also provide a number of features that make them perfectly suited for social distancing behaviors, whether it be during the Covid-19 outbreak or any other time.
If you're in need of a new car but don't want to visit a dealership, remember, you can virtually shop for new cars using Cadillac Live or purchase a used car online through sites like Carvana. And, keeping a packet of sanitizing wipes in the glovebox to use to wipe down gas pumps and windshield washer fluid station wands, isn't a bad idea.

There's a fair amount of parents complaining about being stuck in the house all day with their children. Why not pile them in the plug-in hybrid version of America's plushest minivan? The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid can comfortably seat seven and it can go 32 miles without using any gasoline meaning less time touching dirty fuel pump handles.

The Ram 1500 is plenty capable of towing and hauling but when it comes to leaving the house with your most precious cargo during an epidemic, the truck's creature comforts show through. Many drive-ins are opening up and the Ram's reclining second row and abundant passenger space make the model a great choice to take to the movies. Plus, you can set up a few chairs or tent in the bed to enjoy a more unique experience.
