Jeep will introduce its first-ever Jeep Adventure Academy to provide off-road driving instruction to Jeep 4×4 owners, the automaker announced. Beginning this October, the Jeep Adventure Academy will take place in select locations across the country and will be led by off-roading experts and prominent instructors from Jeep Jamboree USA. Participants will learn off-roading basics and even more about their Jeep brand vehicle’s capability, while building confidence and connections within the Jeep brand community of adventure seekers, the company said.
