You're over it. The 9 to 5 grind has run its course. The thought of wearing another suit/pantsuit is about as appealing a root canal. You're ready to sell most of your possessions to free-up some dough and embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Perhaps for a year, perhaps for much longer. Whichever the case, there's one thing you cannot live without when it comes to living on the road - a reliable vehicle that's just as adventurous as you are.

Toyota applauds your venturesome spirit. Heck, you're about to do what most of the country wishes it had the gumption to do. And just as surely as we have manufactured vehicles for them all, urban dwellers and suburbanites alike, we have tailor-made a line of vehicles for you too. Let's get to it.

3 New Toyota Vehicles that are Perfect for those Packing Up to Live Life on the Open Road

2017 Toyota 4Runner

If you plan on living on the road, chances are you'll be spending some time on the off-road too. That's where the new and powerful V6 4Runner excels. This tough-as-nails vehicle already has a legacy as a top SUV for road trips and long distance drives, so it aligns with both goals. 

You need to know that your road companion will be able to take the brunt of whatever lands in its path. With tough body-on-frame construction, skid plates, and independent double-wishbone front/4-link plus coil-spring rear suspension, this vehicle is ready.

Consider the 4Runner to be a custom solution to your new life, accommodating what you need. For instance, the TRD Off-Road features a lever-type transfer case that allows you to switch to

low range to help manage the roughest trails. The SR5 and Limited's available dial-type transfer case lets you switch (via a dial) into low range for extreme low-speed off-road conditions. Additional available features include Crawl Control, Hill Start Assist Control, Downhill Assist Control, and a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System.

A vehicle for life on the road also requires plenty of cargo space and convenience. The 4Runner provides as sliding rear cargo deck, power rear glass for easy access, and 40/20/40 flat-fold second-row seats that allow up to 88 cubic feet when folded down. 

Comfort and peace-of-mind is also imperative when on your adventure, especially when you're bringing others along with you. The 4Runner covers all bases here. With an enhanced tire-pressure monitor system, front row active headrests, integrated back-up camera display, and 8 airbags, you and your crew will enjoy life on the road without concern.

2017 Toyota Sequoia

Life on the road may have you bringing life along with you. That likely involves a trailer or other vessel that allows you to literally pack it all up for the long haul. As a longstanding leader among the best vehicles for towing and hauling, the 381 hp 5.7 L V8 Sequoia is your best option. The SUV comes with fully boxed frame for strength and durability and a TOW/HAUL Mode that selects transmission shift points to optimize power to provide up to a 7400 lb towing capacity. You can literally tow an Airstream, rack a family quiver of mountain bikes, and load up the 120 cubic feet of space with your unique combination of cargo and companions. 

This road-friendly vehicle is really flexible. The available power-reclining and fold-flat third-row seat lets you settle in for extended excursions, especially when you need to pull over for a nap. The automatic lift gate, storage compartments, auto-infotainment system (Blu-Ray included), and front console climate controls offer additional conveniences that other vehicles in this class cannot compare with. Factor in the available Dynamic Laser Cruise Control and standard Star Safety System and you're ready to go. If you're a household looking to live life on the road the Sequoia will accommodate you all. View more on the new Sequoia.

2017 Toyota RAV4

Best Cars for Living on the Road - Rav4 in Burnaby, BC and beyond

Living on the road has different meanings for many. While some plan on spending more time on the off-road (4Runner) or traversing unimaginable miles of asphalt (Sequoia), others plan on tucking into the innumerable cities and towns found along the way. The latter is where the new RAV4 shines. The sporty crossover SUV crosses over all boundaries, performing exactly how you need it to, when you need it to.

The RAV4 is also perfect for those considerate of both their budget (important to life on the road) and carbon footprint. The new Hybrid RAV4 provides an EPA-estimated 30 highway which means you can go further without taking a hit to your pocketbook or eco-consciousness. You may be concerned about road-trip performance when driving a hybrid, but this RAV4 delivers an impressive 194 net horsepower and outstanding acceleration. The available Electronic On-Demand All-Wheel Drive with intelligence and revolutionary electric motor has been designed to help you navigate tough terrain with added traction. The Hybrid Gauge Cluster and Energy Monitor lets you keep an eye on things so that you know well in advance when to pull in to gas-up or plug-in. You're covered between destinations, no matter how far the stretch between each may be.

No matter which RAV4 you choose for your adventure, you're treated to features that will make your new life a seamless one, which is the whole point to giving up the 9 to 5 grind. These include integrated navigation, available multi-stage heated SofTex®-trimmed front seats, available 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat w/memory function and power lumbar support, an available flexible cargo net system, and 60/40 split second-row seats. You decide what you need and the RAV4 will answer your call.

However, no decisions need to be made when it comes to safety. The RAV4 ensures your life on the road is a protected one. The RAV4 is outfitted with eight standard airbags and integrated features such as the Star Safety System and enhanced standard Toyota Safety Sense P.
