The fan-favorite track has an all-new obstacle for 2014: the Trail Rated Pass! Camp Jeep is a thrilling five-minute interactive adventure zone that pairs professional 4x4 drivers with riders. Passengers can experience the full capabilities of Jeep models, including the Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and Jeep Grand Cherokee, as drivers demonstrate how to drive safely on off-road terrain. Guests sit right beside the professional driver and climb the eye-catching 14-foot high, 35-degree Jeep Mountain, the highlight of the ride and display. A DJ will be onsite during the Camp Jeep experience, adding a music element to the space.
All-new 2015 Chrysler 200
Exquisite style meets exceptional performance in the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200. The Chrysler 200 leapfrogs expectations for a mid-size car with an elegant exterior design, a thoughtful and beautifully crafted interior providing an exceptional driving experience complements of a segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission and an all-new chassis. With estimated highway fuel economy of 35 miles per gallon; the most available safety and security features in the segment with 60; an available, best-in-class all-wheel drive system; easy-to-use, state-of-the-art technology and a starting U.S. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of just $21,700, the all-new 2015 Chrysler 200 is a car that customers will be proud to own and at a price they will appreciate. The 2015 Chrysler 200 is designed, engineered and built with pride in Michigan.
2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker Model
Dodge will make a splash in Atlanta with the popular throw-back 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker model. The new 2014 R/T Shaker model features unique throw-back muscle car cues that link directly to the Dodge brand's performance legacy. And like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the new 2014 model continues the Dodge tradition of an engine-mounted hood scoop that "shakes" with the powertrain's movement.
Among the many Ram trucks on display will be the 28 mpg 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, named Motor Trend "Truck of the Year." For those who need even bigger trucks, the 2014 Ram 2500 with an all-new 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 will be on the show floor along with the Ram ProMaster -- the latest entry into the full-size cargo van segment from the Ram Truck brand.
2014 Fiat 500L
The FIAT brand display will include the 2014 Fiat 500L, the focus of the new global advertising campaign "Mirage" that introduces the new Fiat 500L tagline, "Unbelievably Big." Expanding on the style, efficiency and driving enjoyment that has made the Fiat 500 an icon for more than 55 years, the all-new 2014 Fiat 500L expands the Cinquecento's appeal by offering 42 percent extra interior space with comfortable seating for five, engaging driving dynamics, a 160-horsepower 1.4-liter MultiAir Turbo engine and two fuel-saving, six-speed transmission offerings, all wrapped in contemporary Italian design.
2014 SRT Viper GTS
Leaving Dodge behind in 2013, the Viper is now part of the SRT brand which stands for Street and Racing Technology. The 640 horsepower 2014 SRT Viper GTS will wow the crowd at the Atlanta auto show with more power and performance, superior craftsmanship, new technologies and creature comforts.
