Jeep® 4×4 owners are a friendly bunch. It’s one reason they like to give a little wave as they pass each other on the street or the trail. That comradery has taken flight the last few years with many in the Jeep brand community now known to “duck
” each other’s vehicles to show their appreciation for their rides.
During this year’s first-ever, indoor/outdoor Detroit Auto Show at Huntington Place & Hart Plaza, Jeep vehicle owners and enthusiasts can take pictures alongside the world’s largest duck and receive their own rubber duck to keep or gift (while supplies last) during the event’s first weekend (Sept. 17-18) while checking out the Jeep brand’s vehicle lineup in downtown Detroit.
The six-story (61-foot tall), 69-foot wide, 79-foot long “world’s largest duck,” weighing in at more than 8,000 pounds, will be on display in Huntington Place Square during the entire Detroit Auto Show. Fans can post photos across social media channels with the hashtag #duckduckJeep to get in on the fun, potentially win prizes and enter a national sweepstakes.
Consumers will also have the opportunity to sample three Jeep brand-inspired “dessert-rated” ice cream flavors created in partnership with Detroit’s own Milk & Froth
Ice Cream. The ice cream flavors – Snazzberry, 4xe and Mud Terrain – will be handed out during the first weekend of the auto show (Friday, September 16 through Sunday, September 18) while supplies last.
In addition, both the popular Camp Jeep and Ram Truck Territory indoor test tracks
will make their debut at the Detroit Auto Show. These interactive test tracks attract thousands of people and are sure to be fan favorites at the upcoming show.
Attendees who register to participate in any Stellantis experience at the Detroit Auto Show are automatically entered for a chance to win a $100,000 voucher toward an eligible Jeep brand vehicle from Stellantis. A winner will be randomly selected in 2023.
