Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Concept Hints at Possible Production Off-Roader

3/22/2013
Each year, Jeep enthusiasts converge on Moab, Utah, for the annual Easter Jeep Safari, and Jeep uses the opportunity to engage with thousands of existing and potential customers. This year, the company brings six concept vehicles to the event, including a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk equipped with a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine good for 240 horsepower and, more importantly, 420 lb.-ft. of torque.

The Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Concept has 17-inch aluminum wheels with 35-inch Mickey Thompson off-road tires. Additional functional upgrades include custom front and rear skid plates, modified Mopar rock rails, enlarged wheel openings with special fender flares, and dual rear tow hooks.

Dipped in Blood Orange paint, the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Concept is also equipped with a hood from a Grand Cherokee SRT, SRT-design front and rear fascias modified for improved approach and departure angles, and blacked-out exterior trim. Slush mats, rear cargo liner, and unique roof rails are also a part of this conceptual package.

Jeep does not mention whether it might build a production version of the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk or not, but it did offer a Trailhawk version of the 2013 Grand Cherokee for a limited time, so it is not out of the question.
