Compact Crossover Off-Road Challenge

On June 21, 2018, hand-selected automotive media gathered in Woodstock, VA to pit sponsor-provided Compact Crossovers against each other in an off-road challenge. Over the course of five hours on two trail rides, media judges switched vehicles every half hour and shared their experience on the hashtag, #TrailTrekTour. After a full day of trail rides in George Washington National Forest, each media judge ranked their favorite compact crossovers. The Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk was named winner of the Compact Crossover Off-Road Challenge, and each media judge then shared their individual rankings and the overall winner with their audience.

Great job with the group of media, nice variety of outlets and reach. I really liked the concept as well as the branding. This was a fun event that took a different and valuable approach.

Awesome event. Very well done. The amount of preparation and thought that went into this made it seem like it was put together by a team of 10 people.

Loved the location. Very scenic. Good enough trail variety. Driving in, having the flexibility to do photo/video on my own, etc., was great.
