A series of special off-road tracks, designed to demonstrate the remarkable capability of the new Jeep Cherokee, are being brought for the first time to the UK.
The tracks. which include steep climbs, descents. ramps and axle twists, will be made available to the public in London, which has been chosen as one of four major European cities to be visited by the Jeep® Cherokee Temtory European Tour throughout June and July.
The tour will allow enthusiasts. 4×4 lovers and potential customers to try Jeep Jamboree off-road adventure-style driving without having to leave town.
Jamborees in the United States are weekends dedicated to 4×4 driving in which customers tackle extreme off-road adventures in their Jeeps. Since the 1950′s, when the first Jamboree was organised on the legendary Rubicon Trail in the Sierra Nevada mountains, these events have been an important part of the brand’s heritage, and an opportunity to test Jeep’s extraordinary off-road capabilities.
The special off-road tracks have been set to appear in high-profile locations in Alessandria (Italy), Paris (France), London (UK) and Hamburg (Germany). The Queen Elizabeth II Olympic Park is the venue for the UK leg, on 11-13 July.
Around 750 test drives will be organised in the four cities of the tour to challenge visitors on a special course packed with snares and tricky crossings. It will be the opportunity to get to know the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, the ‘off-road’ specialist of the Cherokee range. fitted with a 3.2- litre petrol engine delivering 272 horsepower and paired to the new nine-speed automatic transmission.
