Freedom is a state of mind. The Jeep® is back.

The iconic Jeep® brand is recognized the world over — forever tied to freedom, capability and adventure. Every Jeep® vehicle has a unique story to tell, with a rich heritage that links back to the original Willys MA. DIMO recently had a spectacular event at the beachfront of Jetwing Blue to familiarize and introduce the new Jeep® range to customers.

The word ‘Jeep’ is a household name in Sri Lanka. Every SUV is referred to as a Jeep®. Such is the familiarity and deep rooted association that one brand has had on Sri Lanka’s automotive vocabulary, starting from the Willys decades ago. However there is only one brand which can legitimately use that word, with a rich history that no competitor can even come close to.

Over 150 customers and their families gathered at the beach to witness the on-road & off-road capabilities of Jeep®. The event showcased the 2015 Jeep® Grand Cherokee, the 2015 Jeep® Cherokee, the Jeep® Compass and the ever famous Jeep® Wrangler. A part of the beach stretch was converted on to a test track that tested the Jeep’s capabilities on different terrains such as mud, rock, sand and logs. Customers had the opportunity to test drive the brand new range of Jeep® vehicles as well as their own vehicles on this test track. The day also marked the inauguration of the Jeep Club of Sri Lanka, a club established by likeminded enthusiasts, keen on wandering the wilderness, spreading the wings of freedom while pushing their Jeeps beyond the limit.

Built on more than 70 years of legendary heritage, Jeep® is the authentic SUV with class-leading capability, craftsmanship and versatility for people who seek extraordinary journeys. The Jeep® vehicle lineup consists of the Cherokee, Compass, Grand Cherokee, Patriot, Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited. The Jeep® brand recorded sales of more than 1 million units across the globe in 2014, setting a new all-time record for the third consecutive year.  In addition to its 39 percent global increase, Jeep® sales rose 41 percent in the U.S. in 2014, with a record 692,348 total sales.

For open-air enthusiasts who long to nurture their sense of adventure, for families who delight in the call of the wild, for those who yearn to head for parts unknown, your love of the outdoors is reflected in everything you do.
