Best Tailgate Vehicles
We’re now about halfway through the football season and, well, it hasn’t between all that pretty. The Cowboys and Texans are playing pretty well–thanks again, J.J. Watt–but outside of Baylor and TCU, everyone else looks aerage at best. (Yes, even you, A&M.) Thus, we’e spent more time in the parking lots than we thought we would. So, with games coming up this weekend, what are the best vehicles for your next tailgate?
This terrific pickup just received at our dealership for the new model year, and it checks all the boxes for the serious tailgater. With its available Utili-track Channel System, you can place your coolers, tent and chairs securely in back with ease. Additionally, the 2015 Nissan Frontier has a locking tailgate if you need to secure your things when you head into the game, as well as an available Cargo Bed Light to make sure you can see everything in front of you when you’re putting things away.
If you’re like us, you enjoy pulling a rolling barbecue on your trailer hitch. After all, what fun is eating something delicious if you can’t also see the delight on the faces of 100 of your closest friends? With the Titan, use your 9,500-pound towing capacity and 385 lb-ft of torque to pull the world’s largest grill to the world’s largest tailgates. And, with its incredibly spacious interior cabin, bring your friends along!
The Xterra has a reputation for going anywhere, and it holds up. If you’re the type who tailgates in a rugged locale, the 261 horsepower and skid plate will allow you to scale ditches and hills to get back on the beaten path. Also, its many storage cubbies ensure that you’ll have all the space you need to hold onto game gear, chairs, flashlights and the like. Finally, once the rain comes, you’ll be happy you have the available Roof Rack storage locker to hold onto all of your dirty, wet clothes.
