Meet the Jeep Yuntu

by David Zatz on

Jeep Yunto concept K8

Either ahead of the Jeep K8, or replacing it, is the Jeep Yuntu, a PHEV concept to be shown in Shanghai. The Yuntu bears a definite resemblance to the K8 we revealed last week; it has LED headlights and, apparently, suicide doors.

Since the Chrysler Pacifica rides on a very similar platform, and much of the engine bay and undercarriage is likely identical, it’s quite possible that the production K8 (or Yunto?) will also have a PHEV system. Allpar insiders believe the K8 will share a good deal with a future Chrysler crossover sold in the United States.   (Via Motor1 and Jerry Esposito)
