VW Rolls Out New California Camper Van
Volkswagen introduced the sixth-generation Transporter van a few months ago, ushering in a new era for the once-iconic VW bus. But the Transporter isn’t the only version Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles bases on its core van chassis. It also offers the Caravelle, the Multivan, and this, the new the California camper.
Based on the T6, the latest California is now being rolled out for what you might call “outdoor recreation enthusiasts.” Depending on which configuration you choose, it can fit up to seven people on the road and sleep up to five. VW has thrown everything into this van, literally including the kitchen sink. It’s also got beds, a pop-top, and a dual-burner gas range.
The new VW California can be had in three trim levels (dubbed Beach, Coast, and Ocean) and with a range of gasoline and diesel powertrain options. That is, where it can be had, because despite the name, the California (like the rest of VW’s commercial vehicles) isn’t actually offered in California or any of the other 49 states in the Union.
