Detroit, Michigan – Chrysler has released sketches of two concept vehicles, the Nassau and Trailhawk, that will make their worldwide debut at the 2007 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
The Chrysler Nassau concept is a four-door, four-passenger “luxury coupe”, with a design that the company says “leans toward an exploration as to what could be a future sedan in the brand’s line-up”. The Jeep Trailhawk combines the core features of the Wrangler and Cherokee; derived from the all-new 2007 Wrangler architecture, the Trailhawk provides “classic proportions, unsurpassed off-road capability and a new approach to open-air freedom”. The name is inspired by the headlamps, which are below a diagonal brow that mimics a bird of prey.
