For those who will be attending the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS), Camp Jeep® has turned to the “Big Apple”! Since 2004, more than 425,000 Jacob Javits Center attendees have experienced the off-road course put together by Jeep. Camp Jeep gives show-goers a chance to experience some of the extreme off-road capabilities of Jeep vehicles. The obstacles are designed to demonstrate some of the rigorous testing that Jeep vehicles endure before they ever reach consumers.
Camp Jeep attendees will see firsthand the Jeep capability standards for ground clearance, traction, stability, articulation, break over, off-camber, and suspension. Product specialists will drive attendees over the Camp Jeep course in a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4xe and Unlimited Rubicon 392, the all-new Grand Cherokee 4xe, Jeep Gladiator Mojave and Gladiator Rubicon, and the three-row Grand Cherokee L.
“New York is the biggest SUV market in the world, as well as the Jeep brand’s biggest market, so the New York International Auto Show is the perfect place to go even bigger with Camp Jeep. The mountain is 10 feet higher this year,” said Jim Morrison, Senior Vice President and Head of Jeep North America. “This year, our Jeep customers can see what it’s like to travel 28 feet up a mountain, at 45-degrees, in complete silence, thanks to our new Wrangler Unlimited 4xe and Grand Cherokee 4xe electrified Jeep SUVs.”
In addition to Jeep Mountain, attendees will enjoy a ground clearance stair climb, demonstrating a Jeep vehicles’ ground clearance and traction ability as they climb over a 5-foot staircase. The Trail Rated Pass is all about extreme three-wheeling as Jeep vehicles navigate over a 50-foot long, 8-foot tall obstacle as the vehicle articulates side to side. The Extreme Breakover obstacle will have attendees on the edge of their seats as Jeep vehicles navigate a 25-degree uneven plane until one wheel loses contact with the surface. The vehicle continues to climb until it hits the apex, leaving occupants with quite a thrill ride. Other obstacles include a 30-degree articulation wedge that is guaranteed to raise the excitement factor along with Maneuverability Moguls that test a Jeep vehicle’s low crawl and suspension capabilities.
All Camp Jeep riders will be automatically entered into the Stellantis U.S. National Giveaway for a chance to win $100,000 toward any eligible Stellantis U.S. vehicle. Camp Jeep participants 17 years and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and be at least 44 inches tall.
