Chinese-Themed Jeep Wrangler Design Concept Teased Ahead of Beijing Motor Show
At the Beijing Motor Show on April 23, Jeep will show off a special-edition version of the Wrangler. The design concept pays tribute to China, and thus has a variety of tweaks to pay homage to the country's culture.
The Jeep Wrangler, for its part, was themed to celebrate the Year of the Dragon -- though we can't help but call it the Wrangler with the Dragon Tattoo. It has a big dragon decal on the hood, Chinese character badging on the car's exterior, and special light-colored inset trim for the interior and passenger-side grab handle. We also note unusual projector headlamps and turn signals, both of which appear to be illuminated with LEDs.
Chrysler explains that these vehicles are being shown in China as a preview to the company's return there. The Dodge and Jeep brands have been sold there for some time, but Chrysler will now work on reestablishing its presence in China.
