To no one’s surprise, one of the 20 vehicles that Mopar is displaying at the 2013 SEMA Show is based on the all-new, 2014 Jeep Cherokee . Dubbed the Trail Carver, this SEMA concept displays the off-road abilities of the light-footed Jeep, and endear itself to Jeep faithful.
The concept is based on a Trailhawk 4x4 model that uses a 3.2-liter, V-6 engine that delivers a total of 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque. Mopar added in a cat-back exhaust system that is sure to release 5 to 10 horsepower. With this as a starting point, Mopar added some pretty nice flavors that completely transform the look of the Cherokee .
The concept is painted in Auburn Pearl paint combined with low-gloss black, Granite Crystal and orange highlights. Mopar then rounded out the interior with bright door-sill guards with the Jeep Cherokee logo, a wireless smartphone charger, and WiFi. The Jeep Cargo Management Receiver System.
For the interior, Mopar focused on adding in high-quality, Katzkin Amaretto leather upholstery.
Because we are talking about a concept designed for off-road, the Trail Carver received large wheels wrapped in off-road tires and rock rails that will offer improved protection.
