The automaker flotilla has landed in Beijing, and not to be outdone, Jeep has arrived with four dressed-up design concepts. Though technically all production versions, the vehicles have been reworked and styled for the Chinese audience. Here’s what the off-road marque came up with.
Yesterday we showed you what a couple of hard top Jeep concepts would be able to accomplish with a few enhancements. Today, we’re showing you a trio of vehicles that really gets to the core of Jeep enthusiasts. All of them are based on the long-loved Wrangler.
Every year, the Moab Easter Safari is a point of attraction to our calendars. And every year, Jeep delivers some sweet modified 4x4s to keep us salivating. 2014 is no different, as we’ve all been treated to some handsome Cherokee (and Grand Cherokee) special editions.
With the aging Land Rover Freelander set to be replaced at the end of the year, you would expect owner Tata Motors to trash the whole project and look towards the future. But the automaker has other plans in mind — it wants to recycle the Freelander and give it a Tata badge.
Land Rover customizer Himalaya 4×4 in Hilton Head, South Carolina sent out an alert that it’s missing a killer Land Rover Defender 130 it had up for sale. The truck just underwent a full restoration and upgrade, and it was up for sale on their website for $159,000.
If you’re anything of a Jurassic Park buff, you’d know that coming to theaters in 2015 is the highly anticipated Jurassic World film. Of course, this is the fourth film in the franchise. And like before, Mercedes-Benz will be back in action — this time with something bigger, and meaner. A 6×6.
Around the end of May last year, HSV, the performance wing of the Australian Holden brand, unveiled the Gen-F Maloo R8 SV. It is a snarling, 425-horsepower, V8 beast of a ute, but sadly we will never see it here on American shores. Sure, it is as extreme as you can get for a vehicle with a pickup bed, but there are plenty of other small trucks that the world enjoys that car far more practical. Sadly, those trucks will have as much a chance of sale in the US as leaded paint. So what gives? Blame it on the Chicken Tax.
Possibly one of our favorite times of year is right around the corner — the Moab Easter Safari. Taking place in the mountains of Utah, this annual event combines Jeep personnel and enthusiasts in an off-road trek for the ages. And of course, every year Jeep has something special to show off.
Subaru is a brand after my own heart. The cheesy commercials and soft-roading outdoor culture just does something in my young, impressionable mind that sets me off. So when I first laid eyes on the XV Crosstrek at the 2012 New York Auto Show — it was love at first blinding orange sight.
Our friends at J. White’s Automotive in Framingham, Massachusetts posted a four-minute video on how they swapped the frame in a 2004 Land Rover Discovery II. It is quite the thing to see.
