Ford Rockdale Dealer Drive Day


A 4WD tag along tour new vehicle owners

Not too many people realise, but our 4WD store in Narellan can help create bespoke 4WD tours for car dealers, hotels, business owners or even a group of mates. City Ford Rockdale approached us to help create and a tour for their 4WD owners that had purchased vehicles from their dealership.

They wanted us to create a simple one day driving tour tour that could cater to different experience levels. The idea was to take people onto some dirt trails that were suitable for beginners & give them a taste of using their vehicle off road. The day started early with a delicious breakfast at the dealership & then it was time to drive into the bush. 

City Ford Rockdale also had their staff bring a brand new 2022 Next Gen Ford Ranger so all their customers could see how well it performed off-road and of course how great it looks in person too. 

We headed west to a rural area just outside of Sydney that had a mix of fairly level dirt trails, a few climbs and some shallow water crossings. This meant every driver could experience different conditions in a safe, group environment with our qualified team on hand to provide tips and hints where necessary. The dealership staff drove the demonstration vehicle through all the obstacles on the tour with ease. We could see quite a few customers eyeing off a new Ranger after seeing it in action. 

So many vehicle owners were surprised at how well their 4WD’s coped with being off road and we can tell from the smiling faces that quite a few people will do it again. Customers who’d never done any off-road work in their vehicles left the day more comfortable with the capabilities of their vehicles and themselves.

Some of them have now been bitten by the ‘4WD’ing bug’ and were discussing what their next off road trips might look like. We hope to see them on one of our beginner 4WD tag along tours.

Thinking about doing a
4WD tag along tour?

Head over to our Tag Along Tour page and you will see lots of great options available for short tours in NSW or others that head to places like Cape York, The Simpson Desert and other great 4WD holiday locations. 

The best part about our tag along tours is everything is supported by our 4WD shop in Sydney that has a retail showroom and a workshop. It means everything can be set up for your vehicle before you go on a tour. 

We can check to ensure you vehicle is safe to travel with, make sure it has the right equipment suitable for the tour location and make any adjustments needed. 

Then when you are on the tour with us if you are not sure about anything we can help you. It is like having your own personal 4WD assistants on hand every step of the way. 

For experienced 4WD owners you just do your thing and have a ball with the rest of us.
