Jeep Returns to the 2022 Chicago Auto Show

February 9th, 2022 by

Jeep and its popular Camp Jeep indoor test track is making its return to the 2022 Chicago Auto Show for the 18th year. Since its debut in 2005, more than 532,000 people have ridden in numerous Jeep vehicles and the brand’s indoor test track, getting a taste of the multiple off-road features that they don’t normally experience on everyday commutes. 

Camp Jeep has been a fan-favorite at events and this year will be no exception. The track is now larger and steeper and even includes a mountain that’s 28’ tall – that’s a 10’ increase from past years – and is complete with 45 degree approach/departure angles. Drivers are tasked with navigating through various courses, which work to highlight Jeep’s best off-road features within the 28,000-square-foot exhibit. 

Enthusiasts looking to experience the courses can expect:

  • Ground clearance stair climber
  • Maneuverability moguls
  • Extreme break-over
  • Jeep tunnel pass-through
  • All-new 28-foot, 45-degree hill ascent / descent
  • Off-camber
  • 30-degree banked wedge

Attendees who are interested to take on the course can stop by the Jeep display and get a free ride in any of the following Jeep vehicles: Wrangler Rubicon, Wrangler 4xe, Wrangler 392, Gladiator Rubicon, Gladiator Mojave, Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, Grand Cherokee Overland and Summit Reserve, Cherokee Trailhawk and Compass Trailhawk.

Additionally, auto show attendees can also check out the prowess and performance of Ram Trucks in a nearby Ram Truck Territory test track. Both the Ram 1500 and Ram Heavy Duty pickups will be present. Professional drivers are tasked with driving attendees through a series of steel culverts that highlight riding and handling. Riders can also experience the brand’s hill descent technology on the notorious Ram Mountain– a 13-foot high, 30-foot long course with approach and departure angles in the 30-degree range. Technology is the highlight in this case as well as riders experience the 360-degree camera technology, multi-function tailgate, a 12.1” touchscreen display and more. 

“As one of the most anticipated events at the Chicago Auto Show and auto shows around the country, fans have been known to wait hours at Camp Jeep to get inside our Jeep vehicles for a personal experience on the track. And, this year our Camp Jeep will be bigger and better than ever with over 4,000 more square feet added to its overall footprint and 10 feet added to its mountain. Consumers will be treated to an ever more exhilarating experience with vehicles, including the all-new 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2022 Jeep Wrangler 4xe. Our Ram Truck Territory track, another fan favorite, will give show attendees the opportunity to experience the power and capability of our highly awarded light-duty and heavy-duty trucks, including the 2021 Ram Rebel Limited Night edition and 2021 Ram 2500 Power Wagon 75th Anniversary Edition,” said Jason Russ, Head of Experiential Marketing, Stellantis.
