The new Jeep Wrangler Ultimate concept vehicle will be demonstrated at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas from 30th October to 2nd November. Combining just the right amount of bling, power, the model range’s iconic off-road prowess and, of course, the obscene amounts of distilled mojo in in a single package, Chrysler’s own customization division Mopar has created one of the most desirable lightweight mud-pluggers in the Northern hemisphere.
Guys from Mopar -a design studio that also happens to be a major supplier of after-market components for all vehicles bearing the Jeep logo on their hoods-, have equipped the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, which was chosen as the base model, with a powerful 392 HEMI 6.4-liter engine (it is based on a less potent 6.1-liter powerplant and, if stars align in a proper fashion, may soon enter mass production), adding larger wheels, new tires and putting chrome-clad parts all over the car.
The Jeep Wrangler Ultimate now features an experimental 392 HEMI crate engine.
The company says nothing about the engine’s maximum power output but it is known that, depending on the engine’s version, the power-plant may produce up to 540 hp and 490 lb-ft of torque.
Not bad for such a small and lightweight vehicle.
To transfer all this enormous power to the ground in the most efficient manner, Mopar has equipped the mud-plugger with huge 35-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires fitted to custom Alcoa Forged 18-inch wheels.
The vehicle’s exterior tuning is finished with chromed fuel filler door, taillamp guards, tubular side steps, exterior mirrors, tow hooks, door handles, hood hinges, and fascia overlays.
The car is painted in a Liquid Charcoal Pearl Coat color.
Inside, the Jeep Wrangler Ultimate by Mopar features MyGIG Multimedia Infotainment System and a set of DVD screens for passengers in the front and rear.
