New “Ram Truck Territory” rolls out alongside Camp Jeep and City Drive at 2017 CAS
2017 was a monumental year for FCA experiential marketing at the Chicago Auto Show! Not only did the automaker roll out a gigantic new build for Ram called the Ram Truck Territory (built by partner George P. Johnson Co.), but it also offered guests the ultra-popular Camp Jeep track and the City Drive, a showcase of FCA’s Dodge, Chrysler, and Fiat brands.
All 3 of these tracks gave guests the opportunity to ride in the newest vehicles offered by FCA, with Gordinier Group drivers behind the wheel. Tasked with delivering detailed information about each vehicle while piloting guests up over and through technical obstacles, the GG drivers made countless positive impressions on CAS guests. All 3 tracks operated at full capacity, bell-to-bell, for 10 days, setting a new record for registered guests at an auto show ride and drive.
Below, you will see a brief time-lapse video from a static location on each of the 3 tracks:
Ram Truck Territory-
This track consisted of specific turn-offs for each model Ram truck: a load-leveling demo for 1500, torque-wall pull for 2500 and max weight towing demo for 3500.
Camp Jeep –
The Camp Jeep track is always a crowd favorite in Chicago. This is no surprise, given the infusion of massive amounts of organic material (dirt, boulders, mulch) alongside the mobile properties that make Camp Jeep a thrilling ride that shows off the brand’s off-road prowess. The track features an 18-foot tall, pass-through mountain, staircase, Trail Rated pass, side-hill traverse, breakover and several other challenging obstacles.
City Drive –
The 2017 CAS City Drive track gave customers the chance to experience a ride in 2017 FCA vehicles such as Chrysler 300 and Pacifica, Dodge Charger and Challenger, or Fiat 500 and Spider 124. The track featured an ambient sound zone, Pacifica walkaround lab, vehicle info center, and everyone’s favorite, the acceleration/braking strip,
