With Autumn here and school back in session, tailgating season is in full swing! Whether you’re attending a sporting event or concert, tailgating is an all-American tradition that people continue to enjoy year after year. Though any car can work for tailgating, it helps to have a vehicle with a spacious cabin (or truck bed), a large vehicle that can fit all your friends and tailgating supplies, and an awesome sound system to set the party atmosphere while tailgating. Here are our top 5 picks for vehicles that are perfect for tailgating.
The Ford F-150 is perfect American vehicle to complement this all-American event. The huge pick-up bed is ideal for both carrying your supplies to your tailgating event, and providing seating at the tailgating. There’s even a step that deploys from the tailgate that make’s it easy to get in an out of the truck bed. The one downside is the truck has little seating, so your friends may have to meet you there!
Another option from Ford, the Ford Flex has both a spacious cargo area and plenty of seating to get everyone to your tailgating event. It also has a slew of features ideal for tailgating, including a refrigerated compartment in the trunk to keep your drinks ice cold, and seats that can turn to flip backwards at the touch of a button.
Though it’s truck bed isn’t as big as the Ford F-150, the Honda Ridgeline can fit up to 5 passengers. You can also extent the tailgate to provide ample seating for tailgating. There’s even a drain in the truck bed, so you can ice your drinks right in the bed of the truck. The tailgate both flips down and opens from the side, providing convenience for friends to get in and out during your tailgating party.
The Nissan Armada LE offers plenty of seating, up to 8 total, and also has seats that can fold flat to provide extra space to store all your tailgating supplies. The 12 outlets throughout the car and countless storage cubbies are perfect for tailgating. The Bose-infused audio system is ideal for blasting your party music, with 11 speakers and a subwoofer.
The Chevy Traverse 2LT is another great non-truck option for tailgating. The car seats eight and has 24 cubic feet of hauling room behind the third row seat. The second and third row seats can also lay flat, providing a total of 118 cubic feet of space. Tunes will be provided by a Bose 10 speaker sound system, and upgrade options include 5.1 surround sound, DVD player and eight-inch color monitor.
These great cars are a perfect addition to the fun friends, delicious food and refreshing beverages you bring to your next tailgating party!
