Chrysler previews 2012 SEMA lineup [video]

Chrysler has revealed eight vehicles that will debut at the SEMA Motor Show in Las Vegas.

First up, the Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper has a Dune-in-Matte exterior with black bumpers, a vented hood and 42-inch Super Swamper tires. There's also Katzkin leather seats, a CB radio and a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine that develops 375 hp (280 kW) and 410 lb-ft (555 Nm) of torque.

Jeep will also introduce the Grand Cherokee Half & Half which is an "imaginative demonstration of the before and after of a Mopar-style makeover." One side on the vehicle will be completely stock, while the other side will be equipped chrome accents, a roof rack and 20-inch alloy wheels.

Dodge, on the other hand, will introduce the Charger Juiced. Powered by the Viper's 650 hp (485 kW) V10 engine, the sedan has a restrained appearance with a front spoiler, a ram air hood and 20-inch alloy wheels. Inside, there's two-tone seats and "Copperhead" trim.

If that's a little to discreet, the Dart Carbon Fire has an attention grabbing design thanks to its carbon fiber hood and 19-inch gloss black alloy wheels. The car is also equipped with a mesh grille, LED daytime running lights and Katzkin leather seats.

SRT will join the fray a with "Moparized" Viper that features a bright yellow exterior and carbon fiber accents. Other highlights include Sabelt seats (with a six-point harness), a billet aluminum gear knob and alloy pedals.

Next up, the Urban Ram has an aerodynamic body kit, a fiberglass tonneau cover and 22-inch alloy wheels. It is powered by a 392 HEMI V8 engine that has been equipped with new headers, a cold-air intake and a sports exhaust system.

The company will also showcase the Chrysler 300 Luxury and Fiat 500 Beach Cruiser. The latter model has a Californian vibe thanks to its unique paint scheme and teak surfboard rack.
