SEMA 2016 Preview: Mopar to debut Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep concepts


Modified Challenger, Durango, and other models to be revealed

Being no stranger to providing aftermarket parts for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, it sounds about right that Mopar will be showcasing a plethora of vehicles at SEMA next week. Their lineup consists of varying vehicles from Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge; And each vehicle has a unique trait to set themselves apart.

First up is the most low key among their entries, the stealth-themed Dodge Challenger. A matte black paintjob flanked with gloss black stripes and red accents give the body proper texture. The badge on its shaker hood indicates a 6.4L Hemi V8 lying underneath.


Next is what appears to be the silhouette image of the Dodge Durango. The blue paintjob accentuates a prominent hood scoop as well as a few blacked-out details. If the paint scheme and power bulges are anything to go by, whatever’s underneath the hood should be interesting.

The next image hints at a modified Ram Power Wagon making an appearance at the show. Instead of teasing the front end however, it appears the Ram will come with a massive Plymouth Superbird-styled wing on top of its truck bed. Hopefully there’s enough power to match the truck’s highly pronounced aero bits.

The orange Jeep Wrangler has a “CJ Sixty Six” decal on the sides of its bonnet. Perhaps this is a homage to older generations of Jeep, but the new Wrangler comes with updated bits like LED headlights. If the louvers on its hood is anything to go by, the Wrangler may also have an upgraded motor as well.

Lastly, a Mopar-liveried Chrysler Pacifica makes an appearance. Aside from the Mopar paint scheme, it appears only the wheels have been changed on the Pacifica. The paddle board on the side may hint towards a hidden compartment so perhaps this offering may work towards clients with active lifestyles.

Whatever these teasers mean, it looks like Mopar is all geared up for this year’s SEMA show. Stay tuned for more updates as the show proceeds.
