Camp Jeep Experience
If you have never had a chance to experience Camp Jeep, it is a must. Like most drivers, I don’t go off-roading but now that I have had a taste of it on a controlled closed course at the auto-show, I just might branch out. It is one thing to watch the Jeep run through the off-road course and quite another to actually do it. The Camp Jeep ride and drive is unlike any other auto show consumer event. Until you hit the imagery trail you really can not appreciate the many attributes of this one of a kind vehicle.
At Camp Jeep we went for a ride in the MW3 version of the Rubicon. The course does provide attendee’s with a small taste of the off-road adventure lifestyle that appeals to so many buyers. The course is composed of several obstacles that simulate the capability standards of Jeep vehicles for Ground Clearance, Traction, Stability, Articulation and Maneuverability. To date, it remains a “one of a kind” auto show experience you do not want to miss.
The product specialist does the driving around the course but that doesn’t lessen the fun, excitement and adrenaline rush of going nearly straight up or straight down as you navigate a 30-degree wedge, an 18-foot mountain or the simulated fallen tree log trail.
Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Highlights - (excerpt from aol.auto.com)
The four-door Wrangler Unlimited, with a larger cargo area than the Wrangler, is one of the most versatile, off-road-capable Jeeps ever made. For open-air driving at the beach, or on the trail, or just on the street, the standard soft top can be folded down or the available hard top can be taken off. The doors on the Wrangler Unlimited can be removed and the windshield can be folded down.
The long wheelbase, four-door Wrangler Unlimited is configurable in either Sport, Sahara and Rubicon trim with standard four-wheel drive. A 285-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine and six-speed manual transmission are standard, and a five-speed automatic is available… Electronic stability control with roll control, traction control, brake assist and hill hold control are standard on all Wranglers. The Sahara offers body color flares, Infinity speakers, remote keyless entry, power window, and security alarm and 18-inch wheels.
The Rubicon features equipment that off-road enthusiasts usually add anyway, including heavy-duty axles, front and rear electronic locking differentials, 32-inch BF Goodrich mud tires, sway bar disconnect system, rock rails and a heavy-duty transfer case with 4:1 low-gear ratio. The available Freedom Top three-piece modular hardtop allows panels to be removed above the driver or passenger. Other options include Dual Top Group [hard and soft top] , half doors, remote start system, front seat-mounted side air bags, and a multimedia infotainment system with 28-gigabyte hard drive and navigation system.
