The best Ford vehicles for camping trips
12 July 2018
It might not be your first priority when choosing a new car, but regular campers and outdoorsy families need a vehicle that suits their active lifestyle. Luckily, Ford has a great selection of vehicles for camping trips, whatever your group size and style. Make every adventure even more special - and stress-free - with our pick of the best Ford vehicles for camping trips.
Serious adventurers will appreciate the versatility that comes with owning a Ford Ranger. With four seats and enough load space to carry tents, cooking equipment and everything else you could possibly need, it’s the ideal vehicle for a camping trip.
The Ford Ranger is also a perfect choice if you want to take a small boat or trailer along on your trip. With a gross payload of over one tonne and a 3,500kg towing capability, the Ford Ranger will see you through even the most adventurous expeditions.
You might not think it from its smart exterior, but with the capability of pulling a caravan or attaching a tent, the Ford Edge is made for road trips and camping holidays. As you’d expect with a larger SUV, the Edge also has plenty of room for both passengers and luggage.
On the inside, the Edge provides a quiet and comfortable drive that’s perfect for longer journeys. With 19-inch alloys, nine speakers, hands-free tailgate opening, heated seats and more, the Ford Edge is the perfect vehicle for families who want a car that’s built for every occasion, not just a comfortable camping trip.
Even regular campers need a car that will see them through day-to-day life as well, and the Ford Kuga offers the best of both. Packing all of the reliability and convenience of Ford into a sportier SUV exterior, the Kuga has everything you need for your weekend escapades.
Ford state-of-the-art SYNC 3 system comes with loads of useful features for making the most of any short break, including Live Traffic updates to calculate the best route for maximum holiday time. The panorama roof will let you feel the wind as you head out into nature, while the heated steering wheel and seats will keep winter campers warm.
With enough room for above average-sized families, the seven seater Ford Galaxy has enough room for both you and your camping gear - no matter how many of you there are. That means the Ford Galaxy is a great choice for larger families who want to venture further afield on their camping getaways and need a vehicle that will take them there.
Aside from the obvious perks of owning a larger vehicle, the Galaxy’s Powerload feature makes it easy to load and unload all of your bags and camping equipment with automatic third row lowering and raising. Add that to the Easyfold system, which lets you lower the second row, and you have a flexible vehicle that can adapt for every camping trip.
