Actually I think that is a Jeep concept called Commander. This is from the Jeep website (I got it from drack at jeeps4me)

Jeep Commander combines two of the Jeep brand’s highest ideals — off-road prowess and environmental responsibility.
With the addition of an alternative power source to this Jeep — dual electric motors (front and rear) with a fuel cell battery pack — this concept vehicle commands respect in any environment while making minimal impact on it.

Commander feels stable and secure on the road with a width of nearly seven feet (80 inches). Providing additional security are exterior mirrors with wipers and integrated 180-degree convex mirrors that help eliminate blind spots. Should the path lead off-road, the ride height is adjustable and can be raised four inches.

Off–road aerodynamics are aided by a special heat-exchanging cowl panel that improves wind flow over the windshield and draws hot air out from under the hood to keep the fuel cell system cool. At highway speeds, a rear spoiler deploys from the roof. An “on-demand” roof rack, available when needed for luggage, stays flush with the roof in its normal position.

Inside, data such as weather, traffic and directions, as well as phone, Internet and vehicle diagnostic information are provided by a small laptop computer that can dock into the center console. A small microphone embedded in the steering column can even receive voice commands, which then can be translated into data.

Actually, I just realized that's the Commander so don't pay attention to the photo but it'll probably be something similar.
