Grand CherokeeConcept Vehicle: Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk
Posted by mike on 2012/4/4 8:28:46 (23508) reads


The Jeep brand unveiled the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk concept vehicle at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari last month.

Limited mainly to cosmetic changes, engineers did manage to wrench on new wheels with 18" tires for a more agressive stance. From the press release:

Grand Cherokee Trailhawk’s SilentArmor tires include additional side-wall protection that enhances durability and reduces road noise. Modified Mopar rock rails – engineered to fully protect the lower body from rugged rocky terrain – are included and add to the functional off-road capability.

Visually, while the vehicle is featured in Stone White, a Mineral Gray and Red theme is highlighted throughout. Specifically, the grille surround, lower front applique, mirror caps and rear light bar join the wheels in Mineral Gray, while contrasting in eye-catching Red are the upper grille mesh, front and rear tow hooks, Jeep logos on wheel center caps and bolt holes in the alloy wheels. A Red trim line outlines a matte black hood applique that is utilized to reduce glare during technical off-road maneuvers.

Other unique touches include black headlamp surrounds, black exterior front and rear badging, Red “Trail Rated” badges on the front fenders and a unique “Trailhawk” badge on the rear tailgate.

Red background behind stripes radiator is more suitable for the black car. I do not know if it was the Trailhawk, but what I saw was pretty cool. Although the main advantage of this side-wall additional side-wall protection. From a technical point of view. But black and red. Now I'm dreaming just this jeep.

U can keep the appliques, gawdy logos, and stitching from the hood.

Nice wheels, though. Out with the 3-decade old, dated silver sparkle wheels. in with mineral gray & black!
