(autoinsidenews) - Jeep unveiled its open-air Trailhawk concept at the Detroit Auto Show. Combining the off-road features of the body-on-frame four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the refined sophistication of a Grand Cherokee, the BLUETEC diesel-powered Trailhawk concept provides an all-new on-road open-air concept.
The key to the look of the Trailhawk, said Nick Vardis, Principal Exterior Designer, is the vehicle's distinctive proportions, due in part to its 116-inch wheelbase. The dash-to-front-axle dimension is dramatically long, giving the vehicle a sense of forward motion, while the front and rear overhangs are tight and abbreviated.
The Trail Rated Jeep Trailhawk concept has a three-panel removable glass roof, which allows passengers to experience open-air fun. With a chopped roofline and chunky fender flares, the Jeep Trailhawk concept has a sporty low slung appearance, reports Trend.
With the new Wrangler Unlimited in the lineup, it is unlikely that the Jeep Trailhawk will see production, although some features are likely to see production in future vehicles.
