At least five new concepts are headed to Las Vegas

The 2016 SEMA Show is just around the corner and, as usual, Mopar has released a set of shadowy sketches that preview its lineup at the specialty event in Las Vegas. The brand also announced that its new Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles fitted with production and concept parts and accessories will share the booth with hundreds of Mopar products. In all, no fewer than 14 Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles vehicles will be on display across Mopar’s 15,345-square-foot exhibit.

As to what we’ll see in Las Vegas, Mopar’s first teasers show five FCA models. First up, there’s a Chrysler Pacifica minivan sporting a white-and-blue paint job with surfer graphics over the the rear fenders and bumper. The hauler also sports a set of custom wheels with bright-blue accents. Next up, Mopar readied a Challenger 392 Hemi in dark-gray and with black and red offset stripes on the engine hood and roof. The third vehicle appears to be a Dodge Durango SUV, but other than the flashy blue paint and white or gray engine hood, there’s nothing else to see in the teaser.

Naturally, Mopar also created a special Ram Power Wagon pickup truck for the event. The vehicle sports an orange paint job with black accents, what appears to be a new Ram Rack design, and off-road wheels with red accents. Finally, Mopar is also bringing a modified Jeep Wrangler at SEMA. This vehicle has a more revealing teaser that suggests Mopar is paying tribute to an older Wrangler model. The "CJ-Sixty Six" lettering on the engine hood as well as the vintage-looking front end point out toward the CJ-3B model built between 1953 and 1968. The Wrangler sports a bronze-orange livery with a black hood insert and black grille, a heavy-duty bumper, and off-road wheels with black rims and body-colored accents.

All these concepts will debut new Mopar parts and accessories, including products that will be released throughout 2017. As usual, Mopar may also have a few surprises up its sleeve, so make sure you stick around for updates from the SEMA Show.

There’s no way you can get bored at the SEMA Show, but the Mopar stand is one booth you don’t want to miss. FCA’s parts and accessories division has come up with impressive concepts at each event in Las Vegas and this year’s edition will make no exception from this rule. Be it off-road-ready Wranglers or highly accessorized Fiat 500s, Mopar has always managed to turn heads, despite competing against stiff opposition from specialty aftermarket firms. The fact that what we’re about to see in Las Vegas will also make it in showrooms at some point makes this announcement that much more exciting.
