Con­cept sketches

Townsville Bulletin - - Saturday Television -

THE Chrysler Group will use its ‘‘home’’ mo­tor show at Detroit in Jan­uary to lift the cov­ers on a pair of di­verse con­cept mod­els.The com­pany has re­leased sketches of the Chrysler Nas­sau and Jeep Trail­hawk con­cepts which will fea­ture promi­nently on the stand at the North Amer­i­can In­ter­na­tional Auto Show.The Chrysler Nas­sau con­cept is a four-door, four­pas­sen­ger lux­ury coupe with an em­pha­sis on driv­ing dy­nam­ics. The ex­te­rior de­sign car­ries the theme of the large metal ex­panses on the 300C through to the next level, and leans to­ward an ex­plo­ration of what could be a fu­ture sedan in the brand’s line-up. The Jeep Trail­hawk con­cept brings to­gether the iconic as­pects of the Jeep range in a sin­gle model.It merges the core fea­tures of the Jeep Wran­gler with the more so­phis­ti­cated Grand Chero­kee to pro­duce a car that sits right across the brand val­ues. De­rived from the all-new 2007 Wran­gler ar­chi­tec­ture, the Jeep Trail­hawk con­cept taps into ‘‘Jeep Rugged’’ at­tributes to pro­vide clas­sic pro­por­tions, un­sur­passed off-road ca­pa­bil­ity and a new approach to open-air free­dom. The head­lamps, cropped and peer­ing out from be­neath a di­ag­o­nal brow, pro­duce the coun­te­nance of a bird of prey, and the in­spi­ra­tion for the Trail­hawk name.
