Camp Jeep off-road exhibit at the 2014 Central Florida International Auto Show

Jeep brought their famous Camp Jeep exhibit to the 2014 Central Florida International Auto Show at the Orange County Convention Center this past Thanksgiving weekend as a way to demonstrate the off-road capabilities of some of its vehicles, including the iconic Wrangler and the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee.

I and a family of three had the opportunity to ride along in a new Cherokee in this event, which included a side-angle 30º incline to show the range of articulation of the Cherokee's suspension, and two different log-strewn obstacle courses that tested the Cherokee's compliance and ground clearance.

By far the most impressive obstacle was the 18-foot hill climb, which included 35º of both ascent and descent. I was surprised at how easily the Cherokee climbed the structure without overtaxing the new 3.2L Pentastar engine, and how smoothly it descended the same structure on the other side using nothing but the vehicle's hill descent control to regulate its downhill speed.

Check out the video above to ride along with me as I experience the Camp Jeep exhibit first-hand, and don't forget to take a look at the 2014 CFIAS highlights.
