It’s known for its unbeatable qualities on- and off-road, but its models also make superb towcars. And Jeep is set to demonstrate this after being announced official towcar provider for this week’s Motorhome and Caravan Show 2015.
Jeep will mark the official sponsorship of the popular show in a big way: inside the NEC, Birmingham exhibition hall the brand has a show stand (hall 9, stand 95) displaying the latest Renegade, Cherokee and Grand Cherokee 4×4 models.
Outside the building, there’s an even greater presence. A hospitality unit and six Jeep Grand Cherokees await, for any Caravan Club member who wishes to test drive the award-winning SUV with a caravan fixed behind it.
With 247bhp available from its 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine, the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s 3500kg towing capacity is more than enough to cope with a wide variety of caravans, as this Motorhome and Caravan Show test will prove.
“We are delighted to be official towcar provider for the Motorhome and Caravan Show, and to provide a fleet of Grand Cherokees for this important event,” says Damien Dally, head of brand, Jeep UK.
“Jeep is probably best-known as the company that produces fantastic four wheel drive SUVs, but our cars also make outstanding towing vehicles, as we will be happy to demonstrate at this week’s show.”
The Jeep Grand Cherokee range starts at £38,895 OTR for the 3.0 CRD V6 Laredo, rising to £65,995 OTR for the high performance 6.4 HEMI SRT.
The Caravan and Motorhome Show takes place at the NEC, Birmingham and runs from 13-18 October 2015.
