You read that right Jeep is going for speed with this concept vehicle. Although the Wrangler has never been associated with speed (or mistaken for a sports car), Jeep set out to unveil this new lightweight speed demon at this year’s Easter Jeep Safari, which is held every year in the scenic backdrop of Moab in Utah.
For years, Jeep owners have gathered in Moab, Utah for an annual event called Easter Jeep Safari. Among the variety of things to see and do at the event, Jeep contributes to the buzz each year with a caravan of incredible concept vehicles. This year, Jeep introduced seven amazing concepts, including one that particularly wowed us; the Sandstorm.
This past weekend marked the beginning of the Philadelphia Auto Show where Jeep was determined to make a statement with their new Wranglers. With by far the biggest display area and an indoor replicated off-roading course, Jeep let event attendees test drive the new 2013 JK over a simulated rock garden, dirt mound and vertical incline – a pretty cool idea and a great experience for anyone looking to purchase a new Wrangler or Grand Cherokee. Check out Pictures from the show and Jeep’s obstacle course!
The New Year is finally here which means that it is time to start planning your Jeep Wrangler off-roading events for 2013. As usual, some of the best events of the year will be the Jeep Jamboree events taking place across the country. Today we will focus on the Big Bear Lake, California event taking place from May 9th through May 11th, 2013.
Many so-called off-roaders think that going wheeling is only fun during the summer, but the truth is, a real wheeler hits the trails regardless of weather conditions. With that in mind, we will showcase one of the premiere winter off-roading events in the US, “Winter on the Rocks.”
Jeep owners and lovers will once again unite on July 21 and 22, 2012 in York, PA for this one of a kind annual event celebrating all things Jeep. The event is sponsored by the PA Jeeps club which touts itself as “a non-profit, educational organization which strives to use public lands, not only for safe off-highway driving, but also for hiking, horseback riding, camping, etc. “
One of the best parts about being a Jeep owner is the fact that there are tons of events that happen across the country that allow Jeep owners to gather together and share their passion. Some of the events are small and some others are huge. If you live in the Midwest and are looking for something awesome to do this spring you need to check out the Moab Easter Jeep Safari event.
