The annual Specialty Equipment Market Association show is set to begin early next month in Las Vegas, Nevada. To create a little publicity for this event dedicated to the automotive aftermarket,On Monday teased some of the vehicles it plans to display at SEMA this year.
Stelantis’ in-house parts division didn’t share any details about these undoubtedly heavily modified machines, but Mopar did release several sketches indicating what it would display. The first illustration appears to tease a modified. It looks like this bad-to-the-bones off-roader has special cowl lights and open-frame doors, though it’s hard to tell because the picture is closely cropped. Perhaps this sketch renders the even more electrified Wrangler, which has a range of over 21 miles.
Naturally, Ram is getting some love in SEMA as well. One of the other sketches Mopar released shows a Hellcat-powered TRX truck kicking up a little dirt (okay, a lot of dirt). These pickups feature a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi V8 that delivers 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, which delivers both great performance and poor fuel economy. Compensating for potentially catastrophic consumption, this truck’s grille lettering is lined up in blue, while the front tow hooks appear to be the same colour. Could it indicate some sort of electrified powertrain lurking under it? This could be interesting.
one more teaser forShows a dark blue truck fitted with a bed rack. It’s nothing unusual, but this sketch also shows what appears to be a tent on one side, indicating that the Stelantis division may debut some sort of pickup overlanding concept in Vegas next month.
The most interesting of all the SEMA teasers released by Mopar might be that of what looks like a Wrangler fitted with a Range Rover-style Safari top. It’s hard to tell exactly what’s on display here, but it certainly appears to be a Wrangler crowned with a stern roof that features detachable stained-glass windows for generous outdoor visibility. Does this indicate that a new cover will be made available on the venerable SUV? Your guess is as good as ours.
Finally, aMopar released the teaser of the military truck. It looks like this shot shows a Kaiser Jeep M715 from the late 1960s, but that’s just a guess. Whatever this rig is, it’s seriously cool, with a classic pointed hood, squared-off bumper, olive-drab paint job, and a bunch of lights to cut down on the darkest nights. It will be interesting to see if this vehicle is a modified classic truck or a modern Jeep that has been made to look like the past of the brand. With concept vehicles. Either way, the good news is we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
The annual SEMA show runs from November 2 to November 5. Mopar must have these vehicles on display at its booth in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center—along with hundreds of factory-backed performance parts and accessories.
