What are the best Toyotas for camping old and new

When you go camping, you need an efficient, reliable vehicle that can support all your camping gear and access the best off-road campsites. Without the right care, you won’t be able to take the supplies you need, and you probably won’t be able to drive into forests and woods without getting stuck or experiencing some problems. Toyota has offered a number of trucks and sport utility vehicles over the years that are more than capable of getting you and your passengers to your camping destination. If you are a camping enthusiast, and you are looking to purchase a new or pre-owned Toyota vehicle that can take you into the bush and carry all of your belongings then our Orangeville Toyota dealership is the place to be. To find information about what Toyotas are the best for camping both old and new, then we encourage you to continue reading this blog.

Toyota FJ Cruiser

Do you remember this unique looking Toyota vehicle? It kind of looked like a cross between a Jeep Wrangler and an SUV. You can also still see them on the roads today. With a look and style that mirrors that of the Toyota FJ40, which was released in the 1960s, the Toyota FJ Cruiser has a sturdy frame and plenty of clearance so you can drive through streams and climb roads most other utility vehicles are unable to reach. The storage capacity in the FJ Cruiser offers a maximum of 66.8 cu. ft., which is more than enough room for five passengers and camping gear. This Toyota model is also powered by a 4.0-litre V6 engine with the option for a four-wheel drive and can tow up to 4,700 pounds. The Toyota FY Cruiser was and is still a very good vehicle for campers.

Toyota 4Runner 

The Toyota 4Runner has been around for over 30 years and features durable, aggressive all-terrain tires that can drive through rocks, dirt, and mud so you can reach your campsite with ease. The vehicle’s body-on-frame construction makes the 4Runner ideal for harsh trails and other treacherous road conditions, a fact Toyota has backed up by stating that 90 percent of all 4Runners sold within the last 10 years are still on the road today. The back seats in the 4Runner even fold down so you can accommodate up to 88 cu. ft. of camping gear and cargo.

Toyota Land Cruiser 

Another Toyota vehicle that will end up in the museum of Toyotas. The Toyota Land Cruiser is powered by a 5.7-litre V8 engine that allows the vehicle to conquer the most weather-beaten of trails and boasts solid axle rear suspension that allows for seamless movement in rougher off-road conditions. The Land Cruiser comes with Crawl Control, which allows the vehicle to make easier turns on narrow trails. Newer models of the Toyota Land Cruiser come equipped with second- and third-row seats that can be folded down to accommodate 81.7 cu. ft. of cargo room. Although the Toyota Land Cruiser is no longer in production by Toyota, you may still be able to see them on the roads, and they still make great camping vehicles. 

Toyota Sequoia

The Toyota Sequoia is the ultimate camping vehicle if you’re driving lots of passengers and pets, as the vehicle offers comfortable seating for up to eight people. After folding down all rear seats, the Sequoia features a whopping 120.1 cu.ft. of cargo capacity so you can take a friend or partner on a week-long outdoor adventure. The Sequoia is powered by a 5.7-litre V8 engine and can tow up to 7,400 pounds so you can take boats and other vehicles with you on your trip.
