Best Ford Vehicles for Camping

Summer is officially in full-swing and people are out enjoying the weather and outdoor hobbies. One of the most popular outdoor summer hobbies is camping. However, camping can become a real challenge if you do not have the proper vehicle to haul all of your gear. Therefore, we have decided to dedicate this blog post to highlighting the best Ford vehicles for camping.

Ford F-150:

The Ford F-150 is probably the most obvious and practical camping vehicle in the Ford lineup. It offers all the power that you need to haul a boat or camper. It has plenty of room in the truck bed to load it down with all of your camping supplies, and the strength to carry all of that cargo with ease. The F-150 also offers a great fuel economy rating due to the new light-weight aluminum body that it received for the 2015 model year.

Ford Escape:

The Ford Escape is a compact crossover that is a great camping vehicle for couples or small family. It offers more cargo room and capability then a car, and has exceptional fuel economy rating of 31 miles per gallon on the highway. However, one downside to this vehicle is that it isn’t designed to tow as much as the larger crossovers and trucks in the lineup. So if you have a larger boat or camper this may not be the best camping vehicle for you.

Ford Explorer:

The Ford Explorer is a large family crossover vehicle with plenty of cargo space and room for seven. It also offers four-wheel drive for off-road excursions. This vehicle also has a surprisingly good fuel efficiency rating because of its available EcoBoost powertrain. This vehicle can haul more than the Ford Escape but less than the Ford Expedition, which makes it the perfect medium between those two.

Ford Super Duty:

The Ford F-150 or one of the crossover vehicles will work just fine for the majority of campers. However, if you have an exceptionally large camper or boat that you are hauling with you to your camping destination, it may make sense to go with a Ford Super Duty Truck. These vehicles are designed to offer the best possible performance, payload, and tow rating.
