Gnarly Jeep Chief Concept Brings the Beach Vibe Anywhere
Three days past, the C/D office lost its collective head over an insanely clean 1977 Jeep Cherokee Chief that popped up online on the market. Immaculate in just about any measure, the Chief escaped our grasp and was given to your higher bidder (for almost $27,000). But just as we were coming to terms with losing sight of the Chief, Jeep went and unveiled the Chief theory, a contemporary take on the classic Cherokee Leader that dropped many of us back right into a serious internal conversation about the existential relationship involving the heart, the thoughts, the wallet, and vintage-4*4 possession.
Created for the forty ninth-annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, chrome fender and the Chief's unmistakable shaver grille will definitely activate a deja vu moment even in casual onlookers. A vibrant layer of Ocean Blue paint that is empyrean totally conjures up a '70s California shore vibe. Mark Allen, head of Jeep brand design, tells us it is fresh in the shade laboratory even though the colour seems like a factory AMC/Jeep colour of yore. The 17-inch slotted that is classic -mag wheels wearing 37-inch tires drop right consistent with all the style ethos. Mopar's Jeep Performance Parts offers a cold-air intake for the V6.
Jeep Chief theory
On the basis of the Wrangler Unlimited, the doors and windshield of the Chief theory were chopped a restyled roof channels, and two inches the classic Chief twodoor's appearance as does the removal of the outside handles for the back doors.
Classic surfer symbols are found on the games console as well as the door handles, as well as a tiki-style shifter handle drives home the point.
While we are always curious to find out exactly what contractors, engineers, and the gifted Jeep designers cook up for the yearly offroad buffet called the Easter Jeep Safari, it is some time since one version resonated so through our office. Who is up for Carlsbad this weekend?
