(autoinsidernews) - Another embargo has been broken today, this time AutoWeek spilled the beans on the Jeep Trailhawk Concept, which will be unveiled at the North American International Auto in Detroit. The Trailhawk concept is a traditional Trail Rated Jeep, but combines Jeep's legendary off-road capabilities with refined on-road cruising ability.
Built on the new Wrangler Unlimited platform, the Trailhawk is powered by 3.0L BLUETEC diesel developing 215-hp and 376 lb-ft- of torque spinning massive 22-inch, five-spoke wheels, reports Trend.
The Jeep Trailhawk features a unique take on the brand's classic styling. The concept is muscular, chunky and chiseled, featuring Jeep's signature seven-slot Jeep grille angled rearward, a pair of glaring, hooded HID headlights, and massive and crisply-contoured wheel flares.
The Trailhawk is an open-air Jeep featuring a unique roof system. When the side windows are rolled down, there is no B-pillar above the belt line. Two glass panels over the first- and second-row seats and the glass panel over the cargo compartment are removable, as is the swing-up backlight. With all the glass lowered and removed, the Trailhawk offers occupants virtually the same open-air ambience as a typical soft top Jeep.
As is typical of recent Chrysler concepts, the Trailhawk was designed with the possibility of production, however small, that possibility is still in the back of the designer mind.
