Nacho Jeep concept
Another one of Jeep and Mopar’s joint creations that will be at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari, which runs from 24 March to 1 April, is the Nacho Jeep (you’ve got to love the name).
Jeep says that the 2018 Wrangler Rubicon conversion makes a statement with its “rare Nacho yellow colour”.
The Nacho concept gets a brawny bonnet that is accented with the standard black bonnet graphic featuring the all-new Jeep Performance Parts badge, which is engineered to accommodate a cold-air intake that feeds the 2.0-litre turbocharged I-4 engine.
It’s fitted with a satin black Mopar grille, a steel Rubicon bumper and a Warn Winch kit.
According to Jeep the A-pillar and brush guard-mounted LED lights offer “superior trail visibility”. Other lights include the LED header lights and a rear off-road scouting light, which uses four-colour LEDs to communicate trail conditions: stop (red), 1.6-5 km/h (amber), 5-40 km/h (green) and a rear flood light (white).
The Nacho concept gains increased off-road clearance with a 50mm lift kit that includes new 63.5mm diameter aluminum body shocks.
It rides on 37-inch tyres fitted to 17-inch beadlock-capable rims, with a satin-carbon finish on the wheels.
Other Jeep Performance Parts include rock rails that are thicker and wider than standard, which and carry a grippier coating similar to that used on Ram Truck liners, 50mm-round tube doors, and grab handles embossed with the iconic Jeep grille logo to assist in vehicle ingress.
The spare tyre tailgate hinge reinforcement makes the tailgate strong enough to handle 37-inch tyres. A JPP fuel door in black finish completes the exterior.
Inside, Black Katzkin leather seats are embroidered with the Jeep grille logo in light tungsten stitching and there’s light tungsten accent stitching on the seat bolsters.
