The Jeep® brand will introduce its first-ever Jeep Adventure Academy to provide hands-on, off-road driving instruction to Jeep 4×4 owners. Beginning this October, the Jeep Adventure Academy will take place in select locations across the country and will be led by off-roading experts and prominent instructors from Jeep Jamboree USA. Participants will learn off-roading basics and even more about their Jeep brand vehicle’s legendary capability while building confidence and connections within the Jeep brand community of adventure seekers.
“Off-roading is a rite of passage for Jeep 4×4 owners and the new Jeep Adventure Academy will provide key knowledge every off-roader can use for hitting the trails,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand, FCA – North America. “The new Jeep Adventure Academy underscores the Jeep brand’s commitment to delivering Jeep 4×4 vehicles that provide owners with a sense of capability, safety, and security to handle any condition or adventure with confidence.”
Jeep Adventure Academy classes will focus on several essential areas of off-roading instruction, including 4×4 system basics, driving techniques, trail etiquette, vehicle preparation, and equipment, how to properly read terrain and challenging obstacles, safety tips, and more.
