For the fifth consecutive year, Jeep® brand will be among the main sponsors of European Bike Week – the continent’s largest motorcycling event and biggest gathering of Harley-Davidson enthusiasts.
The event will take place around the stunning Lake Faak in the Austrian Alps from 4-9th September.
Now in its 21st year, the event will offer a party atmosphere, with top bands appearing live on stage and riders from across the world enjoying the chance to ride the area’s thrilling Alpine passes.
And visitors will have the chance to swap two wheels for four as the Jeep brand adds to the excitement with an action-packed programme, including thrilling test drives of its latest models on specially constructed obstacle courses and off-road trails.
The event again underlines the strong relationship between Jeep and Harley-Davidson following the extension last year of Jeep’s role as a key partner and official sponsor of Harley-Davidson’s main events and rallies throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
The prestigious partnership between the two American icons, is based on the shared values of authenticity, passion, freedom and a sense of belonging. It also plays on the reputation of both brands for producing vehicles that can be customised to reflect their owners’ creativity and individuality.
These synergies will be reaffirmed as the iconic Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Renegade will lead the massive parade of motorcycles that opens the celebrations of the European Bike Week.
Star of this year’s event though will be the new Jeep Cherokee – the evolution of the market’s most capable mid-sized SUV – and a model that’s just as at home with the demands of modern city living as it is with adventures off the beaten track.
Starring in the brand’s test drive area, the Cherokee boasts a refreshed design that projects the premium personality of the brand yet stays true to iconic Jeep styling. It features a new fascia with LED lights, signature ‘waterfall’ hood with a new lightweight aluminum structure and a new tailgate for a contemporary and distinctive look.
Inside, there’s an array of user-friendly technologies for more comfort, connectivity and occupant protection while superior quality materials and craftsmanship show a real attention to detail.
The new Jeep Cherokee – the next generation of the brand’s capable mid-sized SUV – will be available for customer test drives alongside the new 2019 Renegade, the new Wrangler, Compass and Grand Cherokee Trailhawk.
Additional Jeep activity will include an exciting virtual reality experience of the new Renegade and Compass at the Jeep Lounge in Harley Village that will allow visitors to discover the main features of the two most popular SUVs in Jeep’s European lineup.
