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.

No Contest: Jeep Grand Cherokee is the Best!

When it comes to the quality of Jeep, there’s no competition. Don’t just take my word for it, the editors of Drive agree with that statement.

Drive has made the announcement that they have chosen the winner of their best four-wheel-drive of the year for 2012. That winner is none other than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The interesting thing to take note of with the win isn’t the competition that the Grand Cherokee was up against, however. It’s that the Jeep won without a fight.

The judges are so certain that the Jeep doesn’t have a serious enough challenge that they didn’t feel the need to have a drawn out process. Not another vehicle even came close enough to produce a shred of doubt in their minds. It’s never happened before in the seven-years this award has been handed out, no other car has had such a staggering victory against the competition.

The love affair with the Grand Cherokee started the previous year when the Jeep took the lead away from the Land Rover Discovery. When compared to the Jeep’s improved interior, refined road manners, and the incredible value, there was just no contest.
