February 8, 2022, Dubai, UAE – Jeep® Middle East hosted an exciting day of action and entertainment for the community of Jeep® Middle East at XQuarry, the UAE’s first dedicated off-road and adventure park, in a celebration of all things Jeep®. In total, 227 Jeeps and 321 participants from the UAE’s Jeep clubs, along with invited guests, friends and family arrived at the park for a day of off-road action and entertainment.
Throughout the day, Jeep owners put their 4x4s to the test on the park’s many off-road obstacles, which include a mud pit, water fording lake, axle-twister and more, all designed to explore the limits of a Jeep’s exceptional off-road performance.
Commenting at the event, Marco Melani, Managing Director for American Brands at Stellantis Middle East said: “Jeep is lucky enough to enjoy a passionate following of brand enthusiasts around the world, and the Middle East boasts one of our strongest communities. We are always grateful for the dedication to the brand shown by our valued community, which is why it is a great pleasure for us to host this event exclusively for them, as a way to give back to our loyal customers and fans. It is also an opportunity for our guests to experience the full Jeep range in an off-road setting, including the all-new Grand Cherokee L, the Gladiator, and of course, the legendary Wrangler Rubicon 392!”
The day included one-on-one experiences with the latest models from Jeep, with models such as the all-new Grand Cherokee L, the iconic Wrangler and the Gladiator Sand Runner available for test drives. There was also a range of official Jeep accessories and merchandising displayed in the MOPAR® corner, as well as action and entertainment for all the family, with a DJ, giant BBQ, and a rollover simulator experience for the bravest guests.
However, the highlight of the day was the appearance of the impressive Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, the first V8 Wrangler in 40 years, which arrived in style before taking center stage on display at the event. The most-capable, quickest, and most-powerful Wrangler ever, the Wrangler Rubicon 392 carries the 6.4-liter HEMI V8, rated at 470 horsepower and 637 Nm of torque.
