Camp Jeep® Makes Its First Trek to Beijing

 

Beijing, China

Camp Jeep® made its maiden trek in the Middle Kingdom today through 

muddy ravines and off-road obstacles in northern Beijing. Hundreds of Chinese

Jeep enthusiasts tested the off-road capability of their Jeep SUVs, in

addition to enjoying music, Bar-B-Que, rock climbing, all-terrain vehicles and

other outdoor activities during this three-day event.

One of the most famous and iconic vehicles on the planet, Jeep symbolizes 

outdoor, rugged, go-anywhere, do-anything individualism,” said Phil Murtaugh,

CEO of Chrysler LLC’s Asia Operations. “Through off-roading, music, food and

family enjoyment, Camp Jeep captures the essence of the free spirit and enjoyment of the brand. More and more Chinese consumers are increasingly differentiating  themselves through leisure and lifestyle activities, which include personal transportation. Camp Jeep is an ideal  platform to offer them a chance to

experience the Jeep lifestyle first-hand.”


The Camp Jeep in Shunyi is based on the same format as those held in the USA

and Europe. It is divided into multiple

areas, such as the Jeep Owners

Center, Jeep  Grand Cherokee and

Jeep Commander Camp, Jeep

Compass Camp, Performance Area

and Open-air Area, all built by

professionals of America Camp Jeep, covering a total area of 50,000 square meters.


“Camp Jeep has become the world’s

most significant single-brand 4x4

customer event. We are very pleased that China’s first Camp Jeep is here in

Beijing. With the extensive participation of Jeep fans, we are fully convinced that China’s first Camp Jeep will be a big success. We will continue to have Camp

Jeep in China so that  Jeep enthusiasts here will be able to enjoy the unique spirit

of Jeep through this annual event,” said Simon Elliott, President and CEO of

Chrysler Group China Sales Ltd.

 

More than 2,000 Jeep owners and enthusiasts with more than 600

Jeep vehicles will test their SUVs on the off-road track, as well as

participate in rock climbing, soccer, four-wheeled motorcycle

competition, and enjoy a firework performance.


Camp Jeep China also offers Jeep fans a prime opportunity to experience the

off-road performance of the all-new Jeep Commander, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Compass, all recently launched in China. The premium Jeep Commander

and Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles will have an off-road area especially suited for their capability. Likewise, the sporty and fashionable Jeep Compass will have its

own area, customized to demonstrate its on- and off-road qualities.

During their experience, Jeep enthusiasts will be able to hone their driving skills

under many different on- and off-road conditions, and experience the different attributes of each Jeep vehicle.

world, and Chrysler sales outside North America currently account for approximately

8 percent of the Company’s total global

sales. Vehicles available range across all three Chrysler brands (Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge) with limited availability on some trucks and SUV models.
