Chrysler Group LLC Reveals Custom Vehicles Headed for 2012 SEMA Show
When the 2012 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show takes place in Las Vegas, Oct. 30 – Nov. 2, enthusiasts will see 24 “Moparized” Chrysler Group LLC vehicles on display at the ultimate aftermarket show. Unique Chrysler, Jeep®, Dodge, Ram, and SRT brand vehicles outfitted with more than 500 Mopar performance parts and accessories will pack Chrysler Group’s 15,300-square-foot exhibit at the SEMA Show. “The SEMA show is the perfect place for us to showcase our vast portfolio of proven, quality-tested Mopar performance parts and accessories,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “We hope that show-goers look at each of these vehicles and get inspired to customize and accessorize their rides. Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper The Dune-in-Matte color, four-door Jeep Wrangler serves as a showpiece for the company’s new portfolio of high-end, hard-core Jeep performance parts. The Sand Trooper is powered by the new 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 conversion kit. The conversion kit pumps out 375 horsepower and 410 lb-ft. of torque. Paired with the power of the HEMI are front and rear portal axles, providing an extra 5 inches of lift to boost ground clearance capabilities. Massive 42-inch Super Swamper Bogger tires, endowed with the oversize style of a tractor tire, ensure the Sand Trooper will enjoy a large, aggressive presence on the SEMA show floor. Performance bead lock wheels are painted matte-black. “Moparized” Fox Shox provide racing-level ride traction and stability, while the full- length underbody skid plate prototype helps protect the exposed undercarriage of the Sand Trooper from off-road elements. For the exterior, the Dune-in-Matte tan color of the Sand Trooper is livened up by numerous black accents throughout the vehicle, including matte-black front and rear off-road bumpers, grille, fuel-filler door, tail lamp guards and black door-sill guards. The Sand Trooper is sans top for an open-concept feel, which is amplified by Mopar half-doors. A vented hood helps the HEMI breathe, and additional Mopar products include a skid plate, Warn winch, LED off-road lights, rock rails and trailer-tow hitch receiver, providing a full arsenal of vital accessories when venturing into the unknown. Moving inside, premium black Katzkin Leather seats incorporate the exterior feel with unique tan stitching. Interior Mopar accessories include a rearview camera, Mopar prototype CB radio, all-weather slush mats, hood lock, and locking trailside winch kit. The Mopar Add-a Trunk upgrades the Sand Trooper with secure storage, as does the under-seat and center-console locking storage and below-floor storage box.
