interesting new jeep concept (trailhawk)

Looks like a t-top version of a grand cherokee, based on the new 07 wrangler base:

Certainly an interesting vehicle.

I just saw some articles about it - I am impressed with some of the information contained in it:

Chrysler will unveil its Jeep Trailhawk concept at the Detroit auto show in January. The vehicle combines the core off-road features of the new body-on-frame four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with luxury features of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Built off the new Wrangler platform, the Trailhawk is a more refined highway cruiser with comparable off-road capabilities.


"The key to the look of the Trailhawk," said Nick Vardis, principal exterior designer, "is the vehicle's distinctive proportions, due in part to its 116-inch wheelbase. The dash-to-front-axle dimension is dramatically long, giving the vehicle a sense of forward motion, while the front and rear overhangs are tight and abbreviated."


The side windows retract fully into the body, leaving no B-pillar above the belt, while the diagonal quarter windows are also fully retractable. Gray-tinted twin longitudinal glass panels over the first- and second-row seats and the glass panel over the cargo compartment are removable, as is the swing-up backlight. With all the glass lowered and removed, the Trailhawk offers occupants virtually the same open-air ambience as a typical soft top Jeep.
They don't allow for direct linking of the pictures, but some of them are awesome!

Yeah, I saw it at the auto show. Its not really that big, but its really cool. The jeep display was the best, they had like 4 wranglers, 3 commanders, 2 patriots, 3 compasses, and libertys and grand cherokees. It was set up like a colorado ski resort kinda, like logs on the walls and a fake fire and stuff. I got a trailhawk booklet i might scan it if you want me to.
But yeah i would definately get one but it looks like it would be the mst expensive jeep.

Jeep is coming up with some pretty fancy automobiles. It looks sick, and the stuff in it is sweet.

Does anyone have any pics or has seen one in person to verify that it indeed has a solid front axle?

I wouldn't mind seeing a more practical version of that as the next GC. Don't forget the Gladiator was used to showcase the new design for the Wranglers...
