Stellantis’ aftermarket accessories unit, Mopar, released several sketches hinting at the vehicles it plans to bring to the SEMA show in Las Vegas next month. The five renderings tease potential offerings from Ram and Jeep.
While the show is THE event to show off aftermarket accessories, one drawing in particular has captured the attention of many: a silver Ram pickup kicking up a storm cloud of dirt. It looks an awful like the TRX, Ram’s 700-plus horsepower response to the Ford Raptor.
While the TRX has been out for a while now, this version is a little different: the RAM badge on the grille is blue as are the front tow hooks, which on other Stellantis models signify it’s a hybrid. Could the brand be teasing another electrified vehicle? Maybe. Since the sketches come with no additional information, we’re left to wonder.
Some speculate it will borrow the 375-hp turbocharged 4-cylinder already in use on the Wrangler hybrid, but anything’s possible.
The next model that caught our eye is a military-inspired Jeep model. Based on the M715 truck, Jeep has a long history of producing one-off military style concepts both for SEMA as well as the Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. This one looks like another stab at that.
Three other concepts
The remaining three models inspire a lot less speculation. Another Ram pickup gets highlighted with a specialized rack in the bed of the pickup. It’s sitting alongside a blue dome tent and features a matching exterior color on the back half of the pickup.
However, going from back to front, the color transitions from blue to black with an interesting honeycomb pattern the way it makes the shift. It’s unclear the purpose of the rack.
There’s a Jeep Wrangler four-door with soft top off, replaced by a specialized hard top roof that’s higher than normal at the back. It’s also difficult to tell what it may be used for, but it has massive windows in the back as well as along the front part of the roof, similar to that of an old style Land Rover.
The final offering is a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with a high-intensity spotlight attached to the hood on the driver’s side, making it easier to trek through difficult terrain at night.
The show is Nov 2-5 and there are going to be more offerings from other automakers in the near future.
