    This is from the Chicago Auto Show Website.
    Ram Truck Territory - General Events - Events | Chicago Auto Show (at https://www.chicagoautoshow.com/multimedia/events/ram-truck-territory211/ )

    Ram Truck Territory

    Ram Exhibit - South Hall

    The Ram Truck Brand is bringing back its RAM Truck Territory interactive ride experience to the Chicago Auto Show. The 28,000-square-foot ultimate in-truck adventure demonstrates the power and capabilities of the Ram Truck brand vehicle lineup. Professional drivers will navigate attendees through the interactive course in both the Ram 1500 light duty and 2500 heavy trucks, which won back to back awards in 2019 and 2020 from Motor Trend as the “Truck of the Year.” It is projected that 25,000 test-rides will be given (35,000 total guests including minors). Key track features include:
    • A payload demonstration, where passengers experience the class-exclusive Active-Level four-corner air suspension found only on Ram trucks.
    • A stability demonstration on a “High Banked Wedge” structure taller than 6-feet and 70-feet in diameter with a 30 degree tilt.
    • The towing of the Ram 1500 BIC Hemi V8 powered truck will also be demonstrated as trucks hitch to the 24-foot-tall Ram “Tow Power Tower” and lift a weight to simulate towing 12,000-pounds.
    • A series of steel culverts will showcase ride handling capability and suspension options.
    • Riders will also feel the traction and experience hill descent technology on the iconic “Ram Mountain,” a 13-foot high, 30-foot long course element with 30 degree approach and departure angles.
    • Technology will be displayed as the drivers highlight the parallel and perpendicular park assist features and trailer towing technology
    Course Construction Facts:
    • (18) 53’ Trailers are used in the transport of freight
    • The Ram Truck Territory Properties weigh 140 tons (280,000 lbs.)
    • The driving surface is constructed of 5,376 Square Feet of Timber Mats
    • The space is branded with over 8,000 square feet of graphics

    FCA Media's US website states there will be two product reveals presented during the media days at Chicago this week. There is one for Jeep and another for Chrysler. That's all I know except that website is really lethargic right now.

    My guess would be Wrangler PHEV in Chicago. Grand Cherokee in New York and Grand Wagoneer in Detroit.

    Detroit seems likely for Wagoneers, is that where the New Plant for Jeep is located?

    Man I'm so jaded from past auto shows that I honestly thought the Chrysler unveil was going to be the Airflow from CES. I'll be very happy to see the Pacifica/Voyager refresh!

    I wasn't expecting the Wagoneer debut until next year.

    The Cherokee Deserthawk would be of interest to me. From the few pictures there are of the concept version, I think it will look really good.

    I saw the Wrangler 4xe at the DC auto show. They had it roped off with very little info. Most show goers were asking why it was roped off because they had no idea it was the new 4xe.

    I am very disappointed that the PHEV Jeeps were not at Chicago. There was a PHEV Pacifica there plugged in to charging station, but that was it from FCA. Hyundai/Kia on the other hand had all their current and near future electrification products on display, including the Nexo fuel cell electric. Along with the Nexo was a model of the the Nexo's fuel cell stack drivetrain. It was like the engines Dodge had on display, except Hyundai had a knowledgeable rep on hand to answer questions. Another difference is that people seemed genuinely interested in the fuel cell, where as the Hemi came across as yesterday's news.

    The refreshed Pacifica looks great in person, better than any photo on the internet, but I didn't see any Voyagers.
