Why concept cars? For obvious reasons – to get a visible, tangible look at the design for production so feel it is possible to assess potential problems can be foreseen, and the concept cars shown to the public, such responses are not gear heads can be judged.
In testing particular ideas, concepts are best – for example, they could be a test bed for exterior and interior colors and materials, new controls and dashboard layouts, variations on packaging etc.
Driving concept cars is a wonderful experience knowing you have driven a future car first hand. Design you can only see in futuristic movies become suddenly real and many are exaggerated versions of what appear. The Jeep® Gladiator Concept Car features the historic box side-mounted spare of past models and open-air canvas top, an expandable truck bed and a stowaway rear seat cushion, has a rugged functionality only found in Jeep. The engine is a 2.8 liter diesel ideal for off-roading yet environmentally friendly, since gas mileage of diesels is better and does not pollute like those of years past.
It can presumably also be run on biodiesel, which both reduces the amount of energy spent on processing and avoid toxic spills. The machine has enough 295 foot-pounds of torque and 163 horsepower. In short, the rear part makes a good departure angle for off-roading. There is a solid front axle and the rear trailing arm system with coil-within-a-coil. There are a front winch, front and rear locking differentials, and skid plates. On the driver’s side, there is a cabin storage access panel, and a lockable storage box in front of the rear wheel where the jack is stored.
The Gladiator looks like the shape wranglers to come, and rumor has it that’s exactly what it is: a first try to get the dimensions and shape of the next-generation Wrangler, due around 2006 (partly to meet new safety standards). We have been told that the Gladiator detained classic Jeep live axles, with a similar 4×4 system and length, but wider for better stability and comfort (the Gladiator is ten inches wider than we suspect the actual increase will be half). The suspension will be updated for additional capacity and security, and we suspect some electronics will be thrown into the mix. If the Gladiator is any indication, ground clearance will also be considerably better – which will be helpful in the face of new competition from Hummers, Porsches and the like
is the most prominent feature for the enthusiast is a new take on. the midgate concept. Rear window cab is roll down the divider, according to credible rumor, the seats then fold and tumble under the pickup bed, so that the space itself is effectively six feet, eight inches long, extending into the cab. This is quite different from the Avalanche / Sport Trak setup. It was heard that there will be four doors, but the two rear doors will be partial width – a suicide door on the passenger side for easy entry into the back seats, and clever, my door on the driver’s side.
