At the Houston Auto Show today, Jeep revealed an awesome new concept car based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It doesn’t have a name though.
That’s because Jeep has come up with this online contest for consumers to name the new production-intent Grand Cherokee concept. The person who chooses the winning name will have an opportunity to win a new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Given the all-black theme of the car, the first name that springs to mind is, of course, Darth Vader. But that’s kinda lame, isn’t it. I’d call it the Cherokee SAS, or RQ-170, definitely something military!
Distinctive features of this production-intent concept car include grille surround in Black, mesh grille texture in Platinum Chrome, Platinum Chrome lower fascia applique, Black headlamp bezels and a Black liftgate light-bar, and 20-inch Black-gloss aluminum wheels.
Based on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo X package, the production-intent concept model includes standard leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, a 9-speaker 506 watt amp sound system with subwoofer, iPod/MP3 connectivity, Parkview™ rear back-up camera, ParkSense® rear-park assist system, Keyless Enter-N-Go, Chrysler Group’s Uconnect hands-free communications system, and more than 50 advanced safety and security features.
