Top 5 reasons why a Toyota Camry does not make a good off-road vehicle.
- Underpowered – The Camry’s 4 cylinder engine just doesn’t have the juice needed for mountain climbing and swamp-buggy-like activities.
- Ground Clearence – With fewer than 10 inches of air between the ground and the underbody of the Camry, it’s a wonder this vehicle makes it over speedbumps and railroad crossings, much less hills and streams.
- Traction – Even with a moderate lift job, the Camry’s standard tires have little affect on muddy, slippery terrains.
- Tow Points – You just can’t find them when that Camry’s stuck in the mud – which is the only time you’d want to know where they are.
- No 4 Wheel Drive – A necessity for all off-road vehicles. If you can’t get power to all 4 tires, you’re probably not going to get far enough away from a road to escape the glow of the nearest street-lights.
Sorry Ames, I couldn’t resist.
