Last year, we got a taste of the forbidden-fruit life by camping (glamping, really) in Volkswagen’s California T6 to help celebrate the van’s 30th birthday.
Here’s hoping that Volkswagen also updates the Grand California, the big-boy variant of its camper van that is basically a complete motor home built from a tall-roof cargo van.
Since then, we’ve been hooked on the California, and to make us even more jealous now, Volkswagen is teasing a revised version that will land in multiple markets, but not our own.
The automaker didn’t offer any teasers showing tech, but it did promise a digital gauge cluster, online infotainment connectivity and redesigned controls for the camper unit in the roof.
The most notable change is a radically revised front end, extending the grille lower to give the car a slightly newer character, while slimming the headlights and connecting them to a clever piece of trim extending to the front fender.
The interior sketch looks pretty slick, as well, with enough space for a sink and stove combination on one side, with a large bench seat and fold-out table on the other.
Volkswagen this week put out two teaser sketches for the upcoming VW California 6. 1.
