2012 Jeep Wrangler Traildozer

Jeep’s line-up of vehicles at the 2012 Easter Safari in Moab, Utah is rounding out into shape with the unveiling of two new vehicles - the Jeep Cherokee Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Concept and the Jeep Wrangler Traildozer - following last week’s announcement of the Mighty FC Concept, the J12, and the Wrangler Apache.

The Traildozer, in particular, is based on a Dozer Yellow 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and was co-designed by Jeep and the engineering boys over at the American Expedition Vehicles (AEV). For the project, the two collaborating heads fixed up the Wrangler with some off-road body protection, Mopar premium front and rear bumpers, and rear corner guards. Likewise, the off-roader was also given a Mopar performance heat reduction hood, a Mopar half-door kit, and a Mopar/Warn 9.5 Cti winch. Inside, the changes, minimal as they are, include an AEV ’F-1’ leather seat trim kit and Mopar slush mats. The wheels configuration includes 37" Mickey Thompson Baja Claw radials mounted on Mopar Classic five-spoke wheels, with a fully-installed AEV Dualsport RS 3.5" suspension lift.

Then there’s the most significant modification on this vehicle: the engine upgrade! For the project, Jeep and AEV installed a bolt-in 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine that produces 470 horsepower and mated it to a Getrag 238 six-speed manual transmission with the power running through Rubicon-specific Dana 44 axles equipped with 4:10 gears and electronic locking differentials.

It doesn’t do much in the way of aesthetics, but the Jeep Wrangler Traildozer is a powerful workhorse hiding in an otherwise simple body.

I think this Traildozer really loves to play on dirt. It’ll be perfect for drag or rally.

It seems that the year 2012 is already filled with bustling Jeep, and I must say that this Traildozer was much better than the Wrangler Rock Raider last year.

Is it still a coincidence that Fiat is doing the same concept?

A lot of Jeeps are scattered with different versions, and the demands for it is directly proportional to the uprising population of Jeep.

I don’t like its style at all; it’s not that I hate it, but isn’t it rather lacking a lot in style?

Now, all it needs is a total makeover. I don’t think this is thoroughly ugly; it just needs a restyling to make its dynamic capability more evident.

I don’t like its physique. If I’d refer to its built according to performance though, I’d say it’s pretty competitive.

Although I am contented with its appearance, in my view, the engine should be upgraded.

What it is equipped with is enough for me although I’d approve greatly if ever they decide to upgrade it.

I’ll root for its performance, but you can’t expect me to be astonished by its appearance; it’s honestly old-fashioned to me.

Jeep needs to update its engine since the demand for it is increasing.

@zitkathet08: I beg your pardon, but which part of it is stylish?

The engine upgrade was necessary, and I’m pleased that Jeep is aware of that. If it gets more stylish, this would be totally fantastic.

The paint job looks downright cheap and sloppy although overall it seems to be competitive.

It really needed a change of engines as this should be more powerful. I love its appearance and performance.

It looks plain on the photo, but maybe it’s gotten more appealing if I saw it personally. The newly added engine is perfect for its dynamic purpose.
