The Jeep Trailcat concept car is billed as the ultimate off-road machine, thanks to a 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI® Hellcat V-8 engine and six-speed manual transmission.

To fit the engine, the shop had to stretch the wheelbase by a full foot and cut the windshield by two inches. Mopar provided a power dome vented hood, satin black grille, LED headlamps, and fog lamps.

venomConcept cars are often made so a car’s feel can be evaluated, problems can be foreseen, and reactions of the public can be judged. Some concepts test specific ideas, colors, controls, or materials — either subtle or out of proportion, to hide what’s being tested. Some are created to help designers think “out of the box.” The Challenger, Prowler, PT Cruiser, and Viper were all tested as production-based concepts dressed up to hide the production intent.
