Camp Jeep features a thrilling “can’t miss” hill climb where passengers experience traction capabilities while climbing the 13-foot high, 35 degree Jeep Mountain, the icon of the ride. Riders are over 16 feet off the ground when they sit on top of Jeep Mountain.
New for 2017: Guests will experience a Ground Clearance Stair Climb where Jeep demonstrates ground clearance and traction as it climbs 5 feet over a staircase.
Another new course element for 2017 is the Extreme Breakover where Jeeps navigate on a 25 degree uneven plane until one wheel loses contact with the surface; the vehicle continues to climb until it hits the apex guests will get a surge of excitement as the vehicle breaks over the plane.
All Camp Jeep participants are entered into the 2017 FCA US National Giveaway for a chance to win $45,000 towards a vehicle from any of the Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram Truck, FIAT and Alfa Romeo brands.
My take: This is cool. No other car company there is willing to put their product through these paces with the public watching. I admire them. They know what they have is a quality product and they easily have the activity at the show that gets talked about most. Even if you’re not a Jeep owner you’ll want to check it out.
