Jeep Drives to Florida for a Jeep Party!

UntitledEven Jeep deserves a vacation.

Five whole days were dedicated to all things Jeep over the weekend thanks to the Mid-Florida Jeep Club. They pulled all their rides together to party with Jeep owners from all over. Saturday was the big day with everyone heading to the Daytona International Speedway to compete in a “show-n-shine” competition. It wasn’t all about looks though, it was also about showing off the capabilities that make the Jeep so infamous. That’s why the beauty pageant potion of the contest was only the half of it. Next up was the obstacle course.

This year was a big one for the event. It marked their 10th anniversary. It’s very popular with Jeep drivers who come not just from nearby Florida, but even as far away as Alaska!

Joe Hogan, a first time attendee, was drawn in not just by his appreciation of Jeep, but also as a thing to do with his family. “I think it’s a family oriented vehicle,” he said. “You can come out and have fun with your family and your friends.”

The event also isn’t just about showing enthusiasts cool Jeeps, it’s also about giving back. The event raised money for the Volusia/Flagler Boys and Girls Club and the Blue Ribbon Coalition, a nonprofit group that promotes access to public lands. In the previous year, the event raised 30,000 for the charities.

After the Jeeps were put through their paces and marveled over, the event ended at the Shores Resort. The attendees then got to enjoy their final day of the event with a pool party and luncheon.

Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition Celebrates Veterans Day

Just in time for Veterans Day, Jeep has a new vehicle rolling out to honor those serving in the military.

It’s a perfect fit, the Jeep rose to renown for being created for and use in World War 2. Since then, the name has come to mean the best in off-road. When the Jeep Wrangler Freedom Edition hit the dealer floor, it was a big hit with fans and had fantastic sales. Following that success is now the Jeep Patriot with its own Freedom Edition. Being made with the brands military history in mind, it’s also a tribute to the men and women who serve.

The hood of the Patriot sports a military-inspired star as well as on the rear quarter panel. On the lower front door is the phrase “Oscar Mike” which is military jargon for “on the move.” The exterior will come in different patriotic flavors with the choice of either red, white, or blue.

Jeep is also taking the next step to make sure that when someone purchases the Jeep Patriot Freedom Edition that they are showing support of our armed forces. Each vehicle sold will put $250 towards charities that benefit the US military.
