In the Book of Mormon chariots are mentioned.  However, what the ancient Americans perceived "chariot" may be different from our own.  The Book of Mormon does not mention that the chariots were pulled by animals.  Perhaps the chariots were similar to other Mesoamerican methods of transportation, such as this Mayan litter.
