After teasing us in 2014 SEAM show Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has finally revealed there actual cars. Repeating their history many models were standing apart with open invitation to challenges.
Dodge has never shied away from showing off its muscle. This year added to the legacy with four concept cars. One that stood apart was Challenger T/A Concept Model. Dressed in Sublime Green and Matte Black, it brought back memories of classic Trans Am racer from ‘70s. Heart of the power is a 6.4-liter V8 engine. Keeping the vintage, there is a pistol-grip gearshift inside.
Mopar Concept has shown the capabilities of the performance hungry FCA’s aftermarket performance arm. The Charger R/T with updated body kit, cold air intake for the 5.7-litre V8 and coil-over suspension kit made Mopar Concept car stood apart. To satisfy hunger for meaner look Dart R/T was available with a black hood with duct work that leads straight to the air intake. The rest of this compact sedan is dressed up in Orange paint. To handle it better it comes with upgrades like a coil-over suspension and big brake kit from the Mopar catalog.
Dodge Series without a track focused model would be just incomplete. So here they are with Viper ACR Concept car with a radical body kit. According to company this body kit has been wind tunnel-tested to produce more downforce. To take safety a step further this one comes with 15.4-inch carbon ceramic brakes with six-piston calipers. There is also a trade off, interiors have mostly been stripped out to save weight. After all it’s a race car, still we do have some carbon fibres inside.
FCA cannot be complete without Jeep. So we have Jeep with 5 concepts on display. To dismay of many, three of them are from this year’s Easter Jeep Safari. But the new Renegade Riptide and Frostbite were enough to tease your senses. If your adrenaline was still in control then Wrangler MOJO, Maximum Performance and Cherokee Dakar will bring it out.
This was just a teaser, rest of the company’s other brands have their own concepts, too. Not to miss list includes Ram 2500 Outdoorsman with a tent in the back for sleeping, and the Fiat 500 Abarth Scorpion with an interesting, two-tone red and white paint job, a cat-back exhaust and leather interior.
