Detroit, Jan 8, 2007 - The Jeep® Trailhawk concept merges the spectrum of the Jeep brand by combining the core off-road features of the new body-on-frame four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the refined sophistication of an all-new on-road open-air concept vehicle, providing a unique and fresh expression for Jeep. Built off the new Wrangler platform, the Jeep Trailhawk is a more refined highway cruiser without sacrificing any of Jeep’s legendary off-road capabilities.

Code3TJ,
The article says that this vehicle would be built on the Wrangler Unlimited platform. Does this mean Jeep will actually put a solid front axle under this thing, or am I misinterpreting what they are talking about? They wussed out on the Grand Cherokee, and the Wrangler style Jeeps are the only ones left with the solid axle. Anyways, I was just wondering because I can't find an answer to this question in any of the articles I have read.

If they're using the Unlimited platform, then probably yes. But we have to remember that concepts aren't often built and when they do end up as a production vehicle, they're usually quite a bit different from the concept. Wink

Kinda of cool being built off the unlimited platform, but to me it kinda looks a little like the dodge magnum.

Auburn Hills, Mich., May 25, 2007 - "Concept to reality" has become a term that epitomizes the Chrysler Group design philosophy, and many observers are hoping that it will apply to the company's concept vehicles for 2007.

Chrysler Group's latest concept vehicles clearly demonstrate a design tradition that has become a key strength of the company: an ability to design the coolest-of-cool concepts, which are as relevant as they are innovative.

The Jeep Trailhawk, which also had its premiere at the 2007 NAIAS, merges the spectrum of the Jeep brand by combining the core off-road features of the new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the refined sophistication of an all-new on-road, open-air concept vehicle, providing a unique and fresh expression for Jeep.

That thing is frickin sexy. If they ever make it into production, my name will surely be on one.
