Camp Jeep at the Philadelphia Auto Show

My family and I had the opportunity to attend the Philadelphia Auto Show this past weekend.  I haven't been to the auto show since I was a kid, so it was fun to share the experience of the auto show with my kids.

Camp Jeep was kind enough to invite my family to attend Camp Jeep at the auto show.  If you are not familiar with Camp Jeep® it's a unique, interactive, off-road experience for consumers attending the 2018 Philadelphia Show from Saturday, January 27 through Sunday, February 4th at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Camp Jeep is the ultimate off-road driving test. The 30,000-square foot exhibit will give auto show attendees a chance to experience the extreme off-road capabilities of Jeep vehicles without leaving the auto show.

The Camp Jeep course is comprised of several obstacles that simulate some of the rigorous testings that Jeep vehicles endure before customers get behind the wheel. This provides consumers with a first-hand look at the capability standards of Jeep vehicles for Ground Clearance, Traction, Stability, Articulation, Breakover, Off-Camber, and Suspension. Camp Jeep is an interactive adventure zone where professional 4x4 drivers allow riders to experience Jeep brand vehicles on and off-road capabilities. Product specialists will drive participants in all-New Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Cherokee Trailhawk, Renegade Trailhawk, Compass Trailhawk and Grand Cherokee Trailhawk to allow consumers to experience the legendary capabilities of a Jeep.

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. Returning in 2018, guests will experience a Ground Clearance Stair Climb where Jeep demonstrates ground clearance and traction as it climbs 5 feet over a staircase. 

Experience an element for Extreme Breakover as Jeeps navigate 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.  

Trail Rated Pass demonstrates extreme three-wheeling over the 50-foot-long, 8-foot-tall obstacle. As the vehicle ascends and descends 8 feet, passengers will experience the capabilities of Jeep as the vehicle articulates side to side over uneven ramps set at a 25 percent incline. Hang on tight as the vehicles teeter side-to-side on this obstacle. 

The track includes a 30-degree articulation wedge to demonstrate the vehicle’s body articulation, attendees will experience the adrenaline rush of looking nearly straight up or straight down as they navigate the obstacle. 

Guests will experience the low crawl and suspension capabilities of a Jeep through the Maneuverability Moguls. Each ride is approximately 5 minutes long.

Participating riders will be automatically entered into the FCA US National Giveaway for a chance to win $45,000 toward any eligible FCA US vehicle. Camp Jeep participants 17 years and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and be at least 44 inches tall.

If you plan on attending the Philadelphia Auto Show make sure you stop by Camp Jeep and experience the fun of the course.  If you are in the market for a Jeep this is a great way to see how the Jeep brand handles different obstacles.
