Chrysler to unveil super sports car at Detroit auto show
Chrysler Group revealed sketches of two concept vehicles it plans to reveal at the 2005 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
The Chrysler Concept, code named Firepower, represents the image of the Chrysler brand – “standards of elegance, refinement and affordability are executed with precision and passion.” This grand tourer concept is powered by a 6.1-liter HEMI V8 and is based on the Dodge Viper. The Chrysler-branded concept pushes beyond the “sports car” realm by blending expressive detail and engineering. The two-seater concept features a tinted glass roof that extends to the rear liftgate, allowing driver and passenger an enhanced feeling of spaciousness.
The Jeep Gladiator is a lifestyle pick-up with all the capability of the Wrangler. It is a statement of Jeep brand heritage, featuring the historic box side-mounted spare of past models. This Flexible Utility Truck, featuring an open-air canvas top, an expandable truck bed and a stow-away rear-seat cushion, has a rugged functionality.
