If you want to discover North America, by far the best way of doing so is to drive; not only will you see sights you could never reach on foot or by using public transport, but you will also be able to travel at your own pace.
In order to make the very best of a driving holiday, many consumers will choose a recreational vehicle – an RV. Designed for extended highway use, an RV is big enough to provide accommodation for the occupants throughout the trip.
New-West, which has been building RVs in Quebec since 1999, has just launched its latest vehicle: the Liberté is spacious, yet compact and economical.
Even the base model is a thoroughly practical proposition: built on a Ford Transit platform, it comes with a 3.7-litre V6 and a six-speed SelectShift automatic, which offers an average highway fuel consumption of 12.6 litres per 100 km. Its compact dimensions make it easy to drive in traffic, yet it offers plenty of space for two adults. Like the other New-West products, the Liberté does not use propane; you cook with a small alcohol stove. Options include a stove with integrated oven, and a microwave.
Other options include a 3.2-litre diesel engine, a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6, navigation, satellite radio, a backup camera and a towing package.
Starting at $94,995, the New-West Liberté offers a straightforward and efficient way to travel. If you love the great outdoors and are looking for a vehicle that suits your lifestyle, you owe it to yourself to check out what New-West has to offer.
