CINCINNATI — Swapalease announced the results of a user survey intended to reveal the best trucks and SUVs for “glamorous camping,” also known as “glamping.” Analysts asked users in top travel markets which vehicles they believe are most comfortable for experiencing the best elements of nature without leaving behind the comforts and conveniences of home.
The top vehicles for glamping as voted on by Swapalease users in five states are as follows:
1. California: Land Rover Range Rover
Swapalease users in California named the Land Rover Range Rover as the perfect vehicle for glamping due to its high level of comfort: The seats offer power recline, heated calf-rests and footrests as well as a hot stone massage feature. The Range Rover also boasts cooled cup holders and a refrigerated front rear console.
2. Texas: Chevrolet Silverado
Texas users said that the Chevrolet Silverado is the ideal vehicle for glamping in Texas due to its storage capabilities, extra space, longer cabin, and wide bed suitable for stargazing. The Silverado includes built-in tie-downs for setting up camp in the bed as well as a 120-volt power outlet for accessories.
3. Arizona: Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Jeep Grand Cherokee was selected by Arizona users for its ease of travel and rugged terrain-performance capabilities. The Grand Cherokee includes a panoramic sunroof and folding seats ideal for sleeping in the cabin or storing larger glamping-trip extras such as bikes or hiking gear.
4. Colorado: Ford Expedition
Swapalease users in Colorado voted the Ford Expedition as their vehicle of choice for trips that require a longer drive time. The expedition is known for its adaptive cruise control, drive-time reminders, smart windshield wipers, and connectivity features.
5. Washington: GMC Terrain
Washington users selected the GMC Terrain as their vehicle of choice for glamping trips. The GMC Terrain is known for its navigation techniques that are compatible with almost all devices, whether they be Apple or Android.
“We have seen an increase in customers searching for leases that have practical capabilities, but also fit their changing lifestyle needs,” said Scot Hall, Swapalease’s executive vice president of operations. “Our customers know that they can have every feature they desire through leasing, rather than having to compromise on luxuries or practicality due to budget restrictions.”
