Best Nissan Vehicles to Take Camping This Summer

Camping is an excellent way of enjoying the spectacular beauty of the Canadian outdoors, and a Nissan SUV is the perfect means of getting on the road. The company's lineup is filled with great cars of all shapes, sizes, and power ratings, but here are four of the best Nissan summer vehicles for enjoying your camping trip in comfort and style.


1) Nissan Pathfinder


The Nissan Pathfinder is one of the best-selling three-row SUVs on the market, thanks largely to its combination of spacious comfort and plentiful power under the hood. Seating up to eight passengers in its roomy cabin, the Pathfinder is fitted with a 3.5L V6 engine pushing out a hefty 284 horsepower and 259lb-ft of torque, helping to propel the rugged frame across all surfaces with ease.

The off-road capability of the Pathfinder is increased even further with the all-wheel-drive models, which feature optimized driving modes for Mud, Sand, Rocks, and more.


2) Nissan Murano


The Nissan Murano offers a rare blend of performance and comfort, helping create a camping experience that's second to none. The 3.5L V6 engine makes 260 horsepower passed to all-wheel drive, giving ample power and firm traction over pavement, gravel, and dirt roads alike. And while the Murano isn't in the heavy-hitter league for towing capacity, its rating of up to 680kg adds welcome extra hauling power to meet your cargo needs.

The Murano is also equipped with a wide range of active safety systems to make sure your vacation goes without a hitch, with features including automatic emergency braking, collision warnings, lane-keeping assist, and much more.


3) Nissan Rogue


Not all camping expeditions are for large groups packing plenty of gear. The Nissan Rogue is a compact crossover that excels in difficult terrains thanks to its wide range of wilderness-friendly features. Expect to see advanced engineering including independent suspension for each of the four wheels, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, electronic traction control, and power steering with speed sensing.

Add in the powerful 2.5L engine delivering 170 horsepower to all-wheel drive, and the Nissan Rogue is a great smaller crossover for taking shorter trips away from the highway.


4) Nissan Armada


Lastly, the Armada is the flagship of the Nissan SUV range, offering an enviable combination of power, comfort, and technology. Built to a full-size, three-row design, the Armada can carry up to eight passengers with plenty of space to spare for packing essential camping gear.



The powerful 5.6L V8 engine pumps out 400 horsepower and 413lb-ft of torque, giving the SUV serious staying power however far you take it off the beaten track. What's more, with a maximum towing capacity of up to 3,855kg, the Armada gives plenty of scope for hauling dirt bikes, kayaks, and more with a suitably equipped trailer.
