What do air shows, fairs, festivals and Jeep® Brand ultimate off-road test courses have in common? Apparently a lot, since a new “Jeep® Rocks and Road Tour” has rolled into cities across the country, giving consumers and Jeep® owners a sneak peek into the private world of Jeep® testing. With obstacles simulated to recreate the rigorous testing that Jeep® vehicles undergo before they are presented to the consumer world, Jeep® offers an “inside” experience to those who want it, and the opportunity to test-drive the new 2011 Jeep® Vehicle Line-up, including the 2011 Jeep® Grand Cherokee!
“We have created the Jeep Rocks & Road Tour to provide our current and potential customers with an adventurous experience that is exclusive to the Jeep brand,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “We are partnering with various venues across the country to reach out to our loyal Jeep consumers, while branching out to those with new interest in the one-of-a-kind Jeep brand. This tour provides an ideal venue to experience the countless features and legendary capability offered in the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, as well as the other vehicles in the Jeep brand family.”
Trained instructors will be on hand to assist those attending with navigation through various off-road situations, such as log crossings, steep grades and rocky trails. The event even offers a “Jeep Playground” for Jeep® owners who brought their own ride to the show. For families attending with their children, there will be “Power Wheels” mini-Jeep vehicles and rock climbing walls.
The next “Jeep® Rocks and Road Tour” is scheduled for this weekend (August 27th – August 29th) at the Offutt Defenders of Freedom Air Show in Bellevue, NE (near Omaha, NE). All drivers must present a valid Driver’s License and be 18 years of age or older. Friday, August 27 is a special, Jeep-only day, as the Offutt Defenders of Freedom Air Show will not start until Saturday, August 28. Due to space restrictions, there will be no Jeep Owner’s Playground at this Jeep Rocks & Road Tour event.
Both the Offutt Defenders of Freedom Air Show and Jeep Rocks & Road Tour are free and open to the public.
