Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Recon

Known for its daring design and capable cars, Jeep didn’t disappoint with its range of Chicago Auto Show offerings. Jeep’s model lineup for the event consisted of all of its most popular nameplates, plus a new vehicle making its debut and a slick concept, to keep things interesting. These Jeep concepts and models drew attention from Jeep enthusiasts like us at Rochester Hills CDJR, bolstering excitement.

In terms of production vehicles, Jeep brought nameplates like the Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Renegade, and of course, the classic Wrangler. With the recent popularity of SUVs and crossovers, Jeep’s lineup has been creating a bit of buzz in the industry. However, Jeep didn’t want to leave its fans empty-handed, so it took the opportunity to debut the new 2017 Compass, which combines Jeep’s signature off-road capability and power with refined modern comforts.

Jeep also took the opportunity to introduce the CJ66 concept, a performance-focused off-roader with a 383 horsepower HEMI V8 engine, a performance exhaust, and Mopar suspension parts.

The Jeep concepts and models at the Chicago Auto Show posed a promise to Jeep fans everywhere – the brand is going to keep cranking out quality, all-terrain vehicles with an updated flair that adapts to modern sensibilities.

Want to venture into the wild world of going off-road in your Jeep? Here are some tips for off-roading, from your thrill-seeking friends here at Rochester Hills CDJR.

Do Your Research

It’s always better to be prepared. Look up any off-roading locations beforehand and get an idea for skill level ahead of time. Be sure that your Jeep has all the accessories you need to handle the wild.

Get a Feel for Your Vehicle

It’s important to get a feel for the way your Jeep handles off-road terrain, so consider taking it to a beginner course or even to Forest Service roads to test its capabilities ahead of time.

Pack for Emergencies

You never know what might happen. Bring along recovery gear in case your wheels get stuck, and of course, some food. You don’t want to get tired or hungry halfway through a long day of off-roading.

Check the Weather

Download some kind of weather app or check the weather just before you go. You never know when a sudden storm is going to blow in.

Bring a Friend

When you’re venturing off into the woods, it’s always good to make sure that somebody is there to help you and be your companion just in case. Be sure to tell others where you are going, too.
