2016 Rocky Mountain Driving Experience (RMDE) Update 8/26/16

With only FIVE days before the start of RMDE 2016, the final details are almost complete. As journalists and RMAP members, we appreciate each of our automotive partners for bringing their latest cars, trucks and crossovers for us to drive at Devil's Thumb Ranch in such a beautiful setting. Among the amazing vehicles our members will sample at RMDE this year will be the hybrid supercar from Acura, the 2017 NSX. FCA will be showing off the new Fiat 124 Spider Lusso at lunch; and the Chrysler Pacifica Touring to show that minivans are far from dead! 

It's worth noting that many companies will have product line managers and experts on hand to field questions. This provides the type of detail that can make or break a review. Toyota will take it a step further in hosting their own raffle for a Lexus R/C model for all those driving a Toyota or Lexus model the first day of RMDE. Nissan's "Year of the Truck"  continues, as they bring their 2017 Armada and Titan to test the RMDE off-road course, joined by the Ford F150 and Honda Ridgeline. There's crossovers galore, from the all-new Infiniti QX30 to the Mazda CX9 and onto the Volkswagen All-Trak (display only). So, the lesson for journalists is, come for the cars, but leave with the stories! Again, here's a complete listing of the entry list for RMDE 2016:
