Cool Hey Jeep guys...........didjaseethis?


http://www.biodieselnow.com/forums/t/19596.aspx

I actually was another site checkin out some old rods when I saw the link to this
I like it, but, I am not a Jeep guy so maybe my opinion shouldn't count.
I think it is a step in the right direction.
Diesel/Electric Hybrid 4x4
But I also beleive it will be a long time, if ever, before it sees production.

Yeah its a concept car Jeep has been throwing around for a while. Doubt its ever going to see production. But its a cool concept. Kinda like an off road Volt.

Yea, Jeep has been throwing some stuff out there for the last few years, but like Red said, not too likely to make it to production. At least not any time soon.

Jeep Treo, electric AWD



The Jeepster, 4.7L V-8


How about the Hurricane? Twin Hemi's, and the ability to spin you to death like a 670 hp Gravatron.


I know the last 2 aren't fuel efficient, I just thought they are cool though. I really thought there were more concepts like the Renegade, I swear I've seen em in the magazines over the years.
