Fall will be here before we know it, and once football season begins, people turn their thoughts to the gridiron. If you’re planning a road trip with friends to catch the Kansas City Chiefs or a college game, make sure you’ve got the right tailgating vehicle. Raise the ante on your pre-game hang-time with one of these best tailgating vehicles from Toyota.
Toyota Tacoma and Toyota Tundra
With plenty of room in the back to store every accessory you’ll need for a fun outing, a pickup truck is an obvious choice for tailgating. With your Toyota truck, literally drop the tailgate, haul out the coolers, grill, and chairs, and you’re ready to go. Toyota trucks offer some special features that make them especially great for your next football tailgate party.
The Toyota Tacoma features a no-scratch composite liner and in-bed storage bins for easy organization of all your tailgating gear. These tailgating trucks also come standard with an electrical outlet in the bed, so there’s no need for an extension cord or generator to watch the other Sunday games. The Tacoma is also a great tailgating candidate because it can be equipped with a variety of bed covers, keeping your gear protected while you’re in the stands.
The Toyota Tundra offers a roomy interior that will provide extra comfort for the whole crew on your way to the big game. With a variety of optional exterior accessories, including a bed mat, cargo dividers, bed steps, and an extender, your Tundra can be customized to suit all your tailgating needs. (And if you need help ordering or installing your Tundra accessories in Sedalia, just visit the Parts Department at our Toyota dealership!)
One highlighted feature making the 4Runner a good tailgating vehicle is its sliding rear cargo deck, which rolls out for extra table space and is convenient for enhancing every aspect of your tailgate cookout. The Toyota 4Runner also boasts a rear 12-volt auxiliary power outlet and a 120-volt outlet in the cargo area, great for powering televisions, radios, or any small appliance. Some high-end trims even come with a 15-speaker JBL system, allowing you to enjoy the pre-game from the comfort of your tailgate area.
Road-tripping with family and friends is just more fun with a Toyota Highlander as your tailgate vehicle of choice. The Car Connection lists the 2018 Toyota Highlander as an exceptionally comfortable ride, and with seating for 8, you can bring everyone to the game and still have room for your tailgating gear. And the V6 engine means you can power through your road trip with a small trailer attached.
Who says you can’t have fun in a minivan? The Toyota Sienna offers the type of reliability that maximizes all the appealing features families want during football season. The Street picks the Toyota Sienna as one of the best tailgating vehicles because of its flexibility, too. Once you arrive for your tailgate party, the second and third row of seats can be stored away to triple your usable interior space. Plus, the Entune system creates a high-quality, multi-dimensional entertainment experience for the whole crew on Football Sunday.
