In addition, during media sessions this week, Chrysler unveiled a Graphite variation of its all-electric Airflow Concept at the New York Auto Show, which opens to the public today and runs through April 24.
The Chrysler Airflow Concept originally debuted at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, but with the new Graphite, Chrysler offers a reimagined look at the brand’s journey to a fully electric future.
The Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept features a new Galaxy Black exterior and Cyprus Copper interior and exterior accents to bring out a sleek, refined new personality for the Airflow Concept’s official global auto show debut.
Chrysler also announced in January at CES that the brand will launch its first battery-electric vehicle (BEV) by 2025 and offer an all-electric Chrysler vehicle lineup by 2028.
Also making its debut at the New York Auto Show is the new Jeep Grand Cherokee High Altitude 4xe. The High Altitude blacked-out appearance package for Summit 4xe and Summit Reserve 4xe models, available to order in the second half of 2022, delivers Jeep 4×4 capability with unique Gloss Black exterior accents and features. A new exterior shade — Hydro Blue Pearl Coat — is available for order in the second half of 2022.
The High Altitude Package, with a U.S. manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $1,495 on Summit and $995 on Summit Reserve, adds premium 21-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels, Gloss Black accents and badging, roof rails, and a unique seven-slot grille to the already well-appointed Summit and Summit Reserve models.
In step with New York’s prevalent and historic color palette of choice, a new exterior paint option, Hydro Blue Pearl Coat, is available on Trailhawk, Overland, Summit, and Summit Reserve models for both two-row, three-row and 4xe Grand Cherokee models, with an MSRP of $395.
Both the new High Altitude Package and Hydro Blue exterior paint color are available to order at Jeep dealerships in the second half of 2022. The High Altitude Package will be available on Grand Cherokee Summit 4xe, Summit Reserve 4xe, Grand Cherokee L Summit and Summit Reserve models in the second half of 2022.
Camp Jeep also returns, making its 16th appearance at the New York International Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan. Since 2004, more than 425,000 New York auto show attendees have experienced this ultimate off-road driving course.
Camp Jeep gives show-goers a chance to experience some of the extreme off-road capabilities of Jeep vehicles. The obstacles are designed to demonstrate some of the rigorous testing that Jeep vehicles endure before they ever reach consumers. Camp Jeep attendees will see firsthand the Jeep capability standards for ground clearance, traction, stability, articulation, breakover, off-camber, and suspension.
Product specialists will drive attendees over the Camp Jeep course in a Wrangler Rubicon 4xe and Rubicon 392, all-new Grand Cherokee 4xe, Jeep Gladiator Mojave and Rubicon, and Grand Cherokee L.
“New York is the biggest SUV market in the world, as well as the Jeep brand’s biggest market, so the New York International Auto Show is the perfect place to go even bigger with Camp Jeep. The mountain is 10 feet higher this year,” says Jim Morrison, senior vice president and head of Jeep brand North America. “This year, our Jeep customers can see what it’s like to travel 28 feet up a mountain, at 45 degrees, in complete silence, thanks to our new Wrangler 4xe and Grand Cherokee 4xe electrified Jeep SUVs.”
In addition to Jeep Mountain, attendees will enjoy a ground clearance stair climb, demonstrating a Jeep vehicles’ ground clearance and traction ability as they climb over a 5-foot staircase. The Trail Rated Pass is all about extreme three-wheeling as Jeep vehicles navigate over a 50-foot long, 8-foot-tall obstacle as the vehicle articulates side to side.
The Extreme Breakover obstacle will have attendees on the edge of their seats as Jeep vehicles navigate a 25-degree uneven plane until one wheel loses contact with the surface. The vehicle continues to climb until it hits the apex, leaving occupants with quite a thrill ride. Other obstacles include a 30-degree articulation wedge that is guaranteed to raise the excitement factor along with Maneuverability Moguls that test a Jeep vehicle’s low crawl and suspension capabilities.
All Camp Jeep riders will be automatically entered into the Stellantis U.S. National Giveaway for a chance to win $100,000 toward any eligible Stellantis U.S. vehicle. Camp Jeep participants 17 years and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and be at least 44 inches tall. Camp Jeep will be open during public hours of the New York Auto Show,
