Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Chrysler’s new concepts

by David Zatz on

Dodge, Ram, Jeep, and Chrysler have all launched at least one new concept car for SEMA — from a sticker-and-stuff kit to a full body-on-frame rework of a 1971 Dodge Challenger.

Most of the attention may go to the Jeep Wrangler CJ66, which uses body parts from three different generations — one CJ and two Wranglers — along with attention-grabbing copper-colored paint.  The Power Wagon Macho is fairly dominant, but the Challenger Shakedown, which mixes 1971 and 2017 Dodge Challengers with a pure-race body-on-frame design, may steal its thunder.
