2013 Chicago Auto Show – Camp Jeep/City Drive
February 7 -18, 2013
Gordinier Group returned to the McCormick Place for the 2013 Chicago Auto Show.
CAS is one of the largest shows of the year, with the ultimate indoor driving courses of the season.
For 2013, Chrysler sponsored the Camp Jeep Off-Road Ride as well as the Chrysler City Drive.
The Camp Jeep track offered a body tilt, ground clearance log pile, boulder pile, log jam berm, articulation moguls and 18′ Jeep mountain – all in a natural setting with mulch, live trees and pines. If you closed your eyes on the track, you might think that you were on the Rubicon Trail in the Sierra Nevada mountains!
Both the Wrangler Rubicon and Grand Cherokee were deployed on track to give guests a thrilling ride. And good thing – during most of the run of CAS, guests waited from 1.5 – 2 hours to experience the Jeep track. Amazing!
The Chrysler City Drive featured a paver-brick ride quality zone, agility zone, sound zone and the crowd favorite performance zone (acceleration and braking) . Gordinier Group coach riders piloted the following 2013 Chrysler, Dodge and Fiat vehicles: 200, 300, T&C, Charger, Challenger, Durango, and Fiat 500.
We were proud to be a part of this production again in 2013. What an amazing show!
