Get Outside

Summer in Canada is all about getting out there — and having a ride that you feel can keep up. Here are some helpful things to consider when you’re aiming to find a good off-road vehicle, towing SUV, or car for camping.

Welcome to Off-Road Season

After a little adventure this summer? Off-roading can be a thrilling way to experience the Canadian landscape. If you’re looking to hit the trails this season, it’s important to know what features can be helpful to look for in a good off-road SUV or truck.

Be Trail-Ready

We’ve put together a list of notable off-road vehicle features, to help you make the most informed decision when it comes to your next trail-ready ride. If you’re interested in a Nissan, we recommend SUVs like the Pathfinder® and Armada® — or the Frontier® truck.

4X4, 4WD or AWD?

Know the difference between these off-road systems. Four-wheel drive or 4X4 tech is engineered to power all four wheels equally, while all-wheel drive is designed to power different wheels at varying rates. Many Nissan models come with standard Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, or Intelligent 4X4 on our larger SUVs and the Nissan Frontier.[[2035]][[2036]]

Take on Towing and Camping

If you’re into camping, the right vehicle can do a lot to enhance the experience. That’s especially true if they have great towing power that allows you to bring along a trailer or other recreational vehicles. Here are some things to think about when you’re evaluating potential features and cars for camping.[[2088]]

Feel at Home Everywhere

Camping out under the stars is even better when your vehicle is properly equipped. If you’re interested in good cars for camping or powerful towing SUVs, make sure they offer a few notable specs.

Camper Towing Capacity

If you prefer to bring along a camper, consider a truck or a larger SUV that can tow up to 6,000 lbs. It’s a good benchmark for towing capacity, and it also means hauling the weight of a small watercraft or ATVs will likely not be an issue. If you’re looking at a Nissan, our larger SUVs and midsize pickup can tow over 6,000 lbs. In fact, the Nissan Armada can haul up to 8,500 lbs.[[2088]]
