March 10, 2010 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

What year was the first Jeep® Wrangler built? Where was the first Camp Jeep held? What is the name of the California-based trail favored by Jeep off-road fans? If you are an avid fan of Jeep vehicles and know way too many facts about the brand’s nearly 70-year heritage, the Jeep brand “Tweet-to-Win” contest is made just for you.

“The ‘Jeep Tweet-to-Win’ contest is a unique and interesting way to begin to create buzz for the iconic Jeep Wrangler and the new special-edition Jeep Wrangler Islander which will hit Chrysler Group dealerships starting this spring,” said Mike Manley, President and CEO – Jeep Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “Social media initiatives, such as this, offer the Jeep brand an opportunity to build and develop a connection with consumers and potential customers; this also enables the company to carry on a two-way conversation between the brand and its customers, which allows us to learn more about that customer and his or her needs.”

The Jeep Tweet-to-Win contest runs from Monday, March 15 to Friday, March 19 and takes place on the brand’s Twitter page, www.twitter.com/jeep. Each day, a new Jeep-branded trivia question will be posted to the site.  The first person to answer the question correctly, and in the correct format, will win a trip for two to the 2010 New York International Auto Show where they will have chance to dig for the “Golden Tiki.” The contest is for U. S. residents.

On Thursday, April 1, contestants will dig in a giant sandbox, built specifically for the New York International Auto Show, to find the Golden Tiki. The first to find it will win an all-new Jeep Wrangler Islander.
