Camp Jeep is the ultimate indoor off-road driving test. The 22,000-square Â foot exhibit will give auto show attendees a chance to experience the extreme Â off-road capabilities of Jeep vehicles without leaving the show floor.
â€śWe have created this unique auto show opportunity to provide our Â customers with a memorable experience that no other manufacturer can offer,â€ť Â said Mike Manley, President and CEO â€“ Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. â€śThe Â iconic Jeep brand offers an adventurous lifestyle and vehicles that deliver Â legendary 4×4 capability. Attendees will enjoy the Jeep experience first-hand Â on the show floor this weekend.â€ť
The course will be comprised of several obstacles that simulate some of the Â rigorous testing that Jeep vehicles endure before customers get behind the Â wheel. This provides consumers a first-hand look at the capability standards Â of Jeep vehicles for Ground Clearance, Traction, Stability, Articulation and Â Suspension.
The Jeep Test Track is an interactive adventure zone where professional 4×4 Â drivers allow riders to experience a Jeep’s on and off-road capabilities. Â Product specialists will chauffeur participants in a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, Â Wrangler Rubicon and Grand Cherokee to allow consumers to experience the Â legendary capabilities of a Jeep. Camp Jeep features a thrilling, “can’t Â miss” hill climb where passengers experience the Jeep’s traction Â capabilities while climbing the 14-foot high, 35 degree Jeep Mountain, the Â icon of the ride. Riders are over 18 feet off the ground when they sit on top Â of Jeep Mountain. The track includes a 12 x 25-foot section of terrain Â simulating fallen logs measuring 18 inches in diameter and a 30-degree wedge Â to demonstrate the vehicleâ€™s body articulation where attendees will Â experience the adrenaline rush of looking nearly straight up or straight down Â as they navigate the obstacle. Each ride is about 5 minutes long. Camp Jeep Â will be open during all hours of the Indianapolis Auto Show and any Â additional media requests beginning December 26.
