Camp Jeep 2019: Jeep and Mopar brands joined forces for a record-breaking edition
Last weekend the most important event of the Jeep Owners Group (J.O.G.) took place in San Martino di Castrozza, Italy.
This year's Camp Jeep was a spectacular edition that succeeded in engaging the highest ever number of people in the history of the event: more than 700 Jeep vehicles and over 1,500 enthusiasts, including many families, children and teams from all over Europe, Africa and even Japan.
The 2019 event was also the most eco-sustainable Camp Jeep ever staged: all the wooden logs used to set up the Camp Jeep venue came from trees which collapsed during storms that last October swept neighbouring woods to the area used for the event. These totalled 100 cubic metres of tree trunks, equal to 250 tons of wood without considering additional 360 cubic metres of woodchips.
All eyes were on the new Jeep Gladiator, which was first revealed to the world at the Los Angeles Motor Show at the end of 2018, marking the return of the brand to the pick-up segment after 27 years. As the ultimate vehicle for any outdoor adventure, the new Jeep pick-up truck will be launched across the EMEA Region (Europe, Middle East and Africa) next year.
Fans were also able to get behind the wheel of all models in the Jeep range, from the iconic Wrangler to Jeep Renegade, Compass, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. And it was indeed this last vehicle that got visitors' emotions racing, in the Trackhawk version, the fastest, most powerful Jeep ever featuring a 6.2-litre supercharged V-8 engine developing 710 hp.
The spotlight also fell on the new Jeep Wrangler 1941 designed by Mopar that will be available after the summer on all 2 and 4-door Wrangler 2.2-litre diesel models, and on all trims - including Sport, Sahara and Rubicon.
