Chicago Preview: Camp Jeep, a 25,000-sq.-ft. indoor driving course

Article by Christian A., on February 26, 2010

At the 2010 Chicago Auto Show, expect nothing but the best from Chrysler's display despite it not having much of a display of new products. No one will argue that the biggest attraction would be the Camp Jeep, a 25,000 sq-ft indoor driving course.

Those who attend the show will get a five-minute passenger ride on the track, chauffeured in the Wrangler Unlimited, Grand Cherokee, and Liberty.

The highlighted obstacles include an 18-ft hill, a section that simulates driving on fallen logs, and a 45-degree wedge. The purpose of having this on- and off-road track is to display Jeep vehicles' ground clearance, traction, stability, articulation, and suspension.

Attendees will also get to view Chrysler's live TV option, FLO TV. The $629 option adds 20 live channels, including CBS Mobile, CNBC, Comedy Central, FOX News, MSNBC, MTV, NBC 2Go, and Nickelodeon.

This option is offered on the Chrysler Town & Country; Jeep Grand Cherokee and Commander; Dodge Grand Caravan, Journey, and Nitro; and Ram 1500/2500/3500. If your vehicle is on this list (model year 2008 to 2010) and you want this service, you would need Mopar‚ headrest- or seat-mounted DVD entertainment systems.

FLO TV carries a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty on new vehicles or a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty on retrofitted vehicles.

FLO TV is a major feature in a "connected" Dodge Grand Caravan that boasts all the infotainment systems Chrysler has available, including satellite radio, multi-language voice command, a dual-screen rear entertainment system, Sirius Backseat TV, mobile Wi-Fi from Uconnect, satellite navigation, and Bluetooth integration.
