VW Taos Basecamp Concept Review
The Taos Basecamp Concept was created by the VW Design Team of Oxnard, California. It includes modifications that allow the crossover to go off-road. H&R Special Springs LP is used to raise the suspension. This allows for the Traverse MX wheels to be fitted with Falken Widepeak Trail A/T Trail tires. A Thule Canyon XT custom Thule Canyon XT roof rack with integrated off-road LED lighting by Baja Designs is mounted on top. The interior of the crossover is equipped with a Polytec Group cargo divider, which can store a variety of gear.
The Taos’ unique color scheme makes them stand out. It is Waimea Blue with orange accents all around. The silver rocker cladding band matte-black roof and hood add contrast to the bright colors. Additional exterior modifications include front and rear flares with aggressive splash guards and lower door skit plates as well as a custom front grille badge.
