PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Among the many attractions at the 115th Philadelphia Auto Show this year is a chance to take a ride in a popular four-wheeler in a simulated off-road experience.
Steve Lorton, is track manager for Camp Jeep, located at the back end of the main exhibit hall in the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Lorton says the idea is to take guests for a ride in one of the Jeep models on display and give them a demonstration of the vehicle’s capability.READ MORE: Business Owner Hopes Philadelphia's Penn’s Landing Stays Safe Following Triple Shooting That Injured 3 TeenagersPhiladelphia School District's Mask Mandate Goes Back Into Effect On Monday As COVID-19 Cases Rise
“Jeep is known to be that iconic four-wheeler and we’re showing off the brand so we have the ground clearance, we have a maneuverability, we have some traction, we have an articulation. And, then we throw it all together at the end with our off-chamber to show how very capable the Jeep is,” said Lorton.MORE NEWS: At Least 6 People Killed In Several Shootings From Saturday To Sunday In Philadelphia: Police
