Volkswagen Taos Getting Ready for Basecamp

Taos gets roof rack, cladding, blue

  • Loaded with accessories, some will come to production model

  • Taos Basecamp VW’s second shot at the package


Volkswagen is giving the new Taos crossover a trip through the accessory and paint department. The automaker’s design team in California has taken inspiration from their Atlas Basecamp concept of 2019 to create the Volkswagen Taos Basecamp, a preview of future accessory packages the automaker might offer.

The Taos Basecamp starts with big rugged fender flares that surround the fifteen52 17-inch wheels and Falken Wildpeak A/T Trail all-terrain tires. Helping those wheels fit and adding some on-trail ground clearance is a set of H&R springs that give it a lift instead of the company’s usual drop.

The customisation goes even higher with a special Thule Canyon XT roof basket on the roof racks that’s been fitted with integrated off-road lamps from Baja Designs. Five big LED lights sit along the front of the basket. Inside, VW has fitted a custom cargo divider that gives you space to store cargo like ropes, carabiners, and other far more likely cargo like groceries and diaper bags.

VW says that the fender flares, lower door skid plates (read: plastic cladding), and grille badge will all make the production Basecamp, though didn’t say when that might hit dealers.

Making the Taos Basecamp pop is Waimea blue paint with a matte-black hood and roof graphic as well as gloss black trim elements. The orange accents signify the identity of the new Basecamp branding and are a good contrast to the GTI’s signature red striping.
