Suited for dog owners who are toting around medium- to large-sized dogs, the 2014 GMC Acadia has ample cargo space to haul pounds of dog food or keep the pooch safe and in comfort when out and about.

Boasting "more cargo space behind the third row than any competitor in its class," this 3.6-liter V-6 crossover has ample space and underfloor storage behind the third row. The Acadia can seat up to eight or carry a combination of passengers and cargo thanks to the ability to fold the third-row split-bench seats flat. Touch-activated climate control will ensure your dog isn't too hot or cold, even in the third row.

Your pooch will also enjoy a smooth ride because of the Acadia's fully independent suspension. Opt for the all-wheel-drive model, which instantly reacts to the conditions on the road, if you want your dog to have an extra-smooth ride.
