The F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for years, and its incredible practicality helps explain why it’s so popular. Even the base version will get you far off the beaten path, and if you really feel the need to explore, the F-150 Raptor is an absolute beast off-road.

The standard safety features are pretty basic, but the camping capabilities are undeniable. The truck bed provides ample space for large camping equipment or for turning the truck into a camper itself. The F-150 can tow between 5,000 to 8,000 pounds making it perfect for hauling an average-sized camp trailer for your trip.

The available 4G LTE wifi hotspot that connects up to eight devices and the 8.4-inch infotainment touchscreen helps to make road trips that much better.

The 2020 RAV4 was revamped with off-roading in mind. However, the low ground clearance on the 2020 model slightly contradicts that, but the AWD system has a panel of modes to help with navigating various terrains. Drivers can select from four modes: mud and sand, rock and dirt, snow, and normal.

The inviting car cabin and climate control settings make for an even more comfortable ride. Drive modes include the sport option which administers sharper acceleration while ECO works to conserve fuel.  The dynamic 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine generates 203 horsepower and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The upgraded navigation display will help you stay on course for your next journey and the spacious cabin is great not only for passenger comfort but for toting luggage as well.
