New Jeeps Previewed at 2012 Geneva Motor Show
New Jeep concept vehicles to be unveiled at 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Concepts preview new models expected later in 2012. Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Compass models to get a harder, cooler edge. New limited-edition Jeep Wrangler Mountain also to be unveiled.
Jeep has announced its intention to showcase two new concept vehicles at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show which anticipate the direction in which the Jeep line-up could evolve later in the year.
The Grand Cherokee concept combines the efficiency of a MultiJet II-equipped 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel engine with an aggressive new look achieved by the addition of new alloy wheels, chunkier bumper spoilers, de-chromed grilles and darkened headlamps surrounds. The Jeep Grand Cherokee concept also features an SRT-8-inspired interior fitted with chunky sports seats, carbon-fibre effect dashboard inserts and sports pedals.
The Jeep Compass concept features a unique black exterior treatment that also includes new grilles, darkened headlamps surrounds and dark-finished wheels, all of which give the compact SUV a sportier and stealthier identity. In addition to the two concepts, the limited-edition Jeep Wrangler Mountain also makes its European, showcasing a number of new features including a two-tone bonnet, darkened front facia and an all-new "Gecko" body-colour.
The Jeep exhibition area is located in Hall 5 and covers a total of 765 square metres.
