Knocking on the memories of an avid car enthusiast is one
driving force for car companies nowadays. Designer Jeeps are
currently the trend today with many car owners choosing jeeps
over the traditional and fairly common cars. With this global
phenomenon taking the world by storm, the number of classic
concept Jeeps has skyrocketed and piled up over the years.
While a lot of jeep enthusiasts are after the nostalgic
atmosphere that designer jeeps do carry, some prefer it to be
functional and can be used on an everyday basis – This is where
the Jeep Chief Concept shines.
The Jeep Chief Concept is the addition into Jeep’s concept car
lineup that brings nostalgia and road practicality in the
precise construction of the new Jeep Chief Concept. Based on
the Wrangler model as its foundation, Jeep has made it into a
real contest when it comes to functional concept cars that are
both stylish and functional. This time, the Wrangler Unlimited is used as a base for
the Chief which gives it a sturdier look and feels. The frame
is a combination of quality metalwork and fiberglass, giving
the Chief an excellent stamina when it comes to off-road
Jeep Chief Concept – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious
With its Wrangler predecessor used as its base, the Jeep Chief
Concept shows similarities to the SJ Cherokee with a slightly
angled forward grill and hood. This shape brings out the round
headlights and the chrome-lined bumper of the Chief even more.
At the back, the Chief shows the hand shape similar to the SJ,
though the special rounded roof makes the design unique in its
own way which allows the roof to sit low after two inches were
subtracted from its roof and its doors.
The interiors for modern cars are often dull and drab but it
seems like Jeep has an answer for that. The Jeep Chief Concept
sports a Hawaiian theme interior with linens and cloth inserts
that have floral designs on them. The vintage stickers on the
bumpers and the surfboard shape also resound a class beach
theme. The cargo area of the Chief is also lined with wood as
well as the passenger grab handle, making it cozier than ever.
Jeep Chief Concept – Engine and Performance
The Chief is equipped with a DOHC 24-valve V6 engine. It also
comes with aluminum block and heads and port fuel injection
that show off its performance on the road and off road. The
Chief Concept also packs a 285 hp at 6400 rpm engine and torque
of 260 lb per feet at 4800 rpm. The Chief handles quite well
with its 6-speed manual transmission, making it best to use on
concrete roads and even on off road pavements, sands, and clay.
Jeep Chief Concept – Price and Release Date
The excellently designed Chief Concept has a lot of people
lining up for it before even releasing. Any changes in its
pricing should be expected as other modifications and parts may
become available prior to its release. The Jeep Concept comes
at an estimated price of $35,000.00 and it is expected to
release next year.
