Trailhawk marked for production?

by David Zatz on


According to a Chrysler spokesman, the Jeep Trailhawk concept is slated for production, with some changes. We were told to expect 9 inches of ground clearance that can, with air suspension, go to 11 inches; special tires for off-road traction; and real side lower rocker panels to protect the body.

In related news, Jeep’s Jim Morrison said the Jeep Altitude contest winner had the name idea because he has a home in the higher altitude range, and the only vehicle that can get him up there is the Jeep.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades.
