Camping with friends or family can be exciting, but if you donï¿½t want to rent an RV every time you take to Mother Nature, here is a list of vehicles that you should consider.
Jeep Wrangler: The Wrangler is an iconic vehicle that has been a perennial favorite for people who love the outdoors. In addition to its go-anywhere attitude, the Wrangler is available with the Jeep Trail Edition camper, which can accommodate up to four adults. Available in Trail and Extreme Trail versions, these campers boast a sofa with a storage table, a queen-size bed, canvas enclosures and so much more. In standard form, it can tackle the trails as well as it can handle the asphalt.
ï¿½There is ï¿½ plenty to love about this unique, characterful, capable and unabashedly all-American SUV,ï¿½ notes Edmunds.
Honda Ridgeline: Named the No. 1 Compact Pickup by U.S. News & World Report, the Ridgeline makes its way back into Honda dealerships after a hiatus, better than ever. A dual-action tailgate helps make loading and unloading incredibly easy, and the 7.3-cubic foot In-Bed Trunk can hold an 82-quart ice chest. Once you get to your destination, youï¿½ll enjoy the truck bed outlets and the worldï¿½s first truck bed audio system. Donï¿½t forget to ask about the all-season floor mats too.
ï¿½In the same way that a car-based crossover is a better choice for most families than a truck-based SUV, the Ridgeline is a better choice for a large swath of pickup buyers. It really is more comfortable, more fuel efficient, roomier, and easier to live with than its primary competitors,ï¿½ says Autoblog.
Ford Expedition: You can imagine why a full-size SUV would be helpful during a camping trip. The Expedition EL model can haul you and up to seven others with a maximum of 168.3 cubic feet of space. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, which produces 365 horsepower and 420 pound/foot of torque, offers a towing capacity of 9,200 pounds. You can also use the Truck Apps suite of tools to enhance off-roading and towing.
ï¿½The Expedition is quietly reasserting itself not only as a rival, but also as a true contender for the domestic full-size-SUV crown. If your vehicular needs include loads of interior space and towing capability in a traditional SUV package, the rebooted and EcoBoosted Expedition deserves a serious look,ï¿½ adds Car and Driver.
Ram 1500: Thereï¿½s always room for a pickup on any list that has to do with camping, and the Ram 1500 may be the best of the bunch. You can equip the Ram 1500 with a fuel-efficient EcoDiesel engine, but itï¿½s the available features that set it apart. The class-exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System enables you to haul nearly anything you can imagine, from ATVs to all of your hunting and fishing equipment. The Uconnect infotainment system keeps you connected to what matters to you.
ï¿½The 2016 Ram 1500 is a top contender in the full-size pickup segment, thanks to a winning combination of strong powertrains, a smooth ride and a well-trimmed cabin,ï¿½ sums up Autoweek.
