Jeep and Ram Vehicles Prove Themselves to Be Top Outdoor Adventure Vehicles at Annual

2018 Jeep Wrangler | Corwin CDJR FIAT | Springfield, MO

Every year, the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) hosts the “Mudfest” competition, which puts the most adventurous vehicles head-to-head for a day of friendly competition and fun. This year, Jeep® and Ram vehicles soared ahead of the competition and were honored with three top awards out of the six vehicle categories, surpassing other vehicles in their segments because of their exceptional off-roading capabilities.

To be named a “Mudfest” winner, a vehicle must go through two days of rigorous testing on paved and off-road paths. At the end the various trials, the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler was awarded the top spot in both the Compact and Mid-size Utility Vehicle category and the Extreme Capability category, while the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel was declared the winner of the pickups category. The all-new 2018 Jeep® Wrangler took home an additional award, earning the title of “Northwest Outdoor Activity Vehicle of the Year.” The all-new Wrangler was praised by the President of NWAPA, who said “Jeep® has taken the Wrangler to the next level, adding safety, technology and on-road refinement to its unparalleled off-road prowess. NWAPA members were impressed by the Wrangler’s performance both on and off the road.”

Meanwhile, the Ram 1500 was celebrated for its “comfort and refinement,” boasting an interior that “rivals luxury cars” while still being able to perform any task set for it. This is not the first time that the exceptional interior of the 2019 Ram 1500 has been recognized, as it was named to WardsAuto’s 10 Best Interiors List for 2018.

Take these incredible vehicles for a test drive when you visit Corwin CDJR.

Camping with Your Ram 1500 | Corwin CDJR FIAT | Springfield, MO

Americans love celebrating our independence. Many of us throw big parties, watch the local parades, and spend the evening watching a fireworks spectacle. This July 4th, try something new and go camping with your Ram 1500.

The Ram 1500 is the ideal camping truck. When properly equipped, it can tow up to 10,620 pounds. This is enough power to pull your pop-up camper or maybe even your boat to your camping destination. The bed has plenty of space to hold all of your camping gear, including sleeping bags, your camp stove, and tent.

Did you know that you can get a lot of fantastic accessories that are designed for your Ram truck that will make your camping experience even better? Be sure to try out some of these during your next big camping trip.

  • Tent. If you don’t like the idea of sleeping on the ground, get your self a tent that fits right into the bed of your Ram 1500.
  • Cargo Net. You don’t want your camping gear to get loose while on your journey. Get a cargo net to cover your bed and keep everything secure.
  • Bike Rack. Add a roof-mounted bike rack to your Ram 1500 to save room in your truck bed.

Of course, if you need to purchase a Ram 1500 vehicle for your trip, be sure to explore our pickup lineup here at Corwin CDJR.

White Hart Renaissance Fair Returns this June

White Hart Renaissance Fair | Corwin CDJR | Springfield, MO

Come one, come all to the White Hart Renaissance Fair. This June, it enters its 13th glorious season. Come experience the world of Shakespeare, of swashbuckling pirates and warring lords, of daring queens and brave knights. The White Hart Renaissance Fair offers fun for the whole family, and you won’t want to miss it.

The Fair will immerse you in the times of the Renaissance, featuring food, drinks, and revelry that will transport you back to a medieval environment. The village market will offer unique, hand-made goods from merchants in period dress, and you can shop around at your leisure. Afterwards, feast with the family, and then watch knights joust and jockey for the crowd’s favor. With a wide range of amusements and crafters, the White Hart Renaissance Fair will delight you and your family from dawn to dusk.

The Fair will offer entertainment that you can’t see anywhere else. Among the entertainment promised is Bound by Fire, a dancing gypsy group that, appropriately enough, dances with fire. In addition, you’ll hear authentic Celtic music from Bruce the Bruce and witness historic swordsmanship from the Five Rings Fencing. With its wealth of entertainment opportunities, everyone will experience a breathtaking performance that brings a smile to the faces of visitors both young and old.

Getting to the Renaissance Fair can be quite difficult on horseback, so consider a new vehicle from Corwin CDJR instead.
