Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Mopar parts brand also specializes in aftermarket upgrades for many of the automaker’s vehicles, and the division is now teasing some of its modified delights for this year’s SEMA Show from November 1-4. If you’re looking to add some style or performance to a vehicle from Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or Ram, then this is a good place to start.
Mopar doesn’t offer any information about the customized vehicles that it is bringing to SEMA, but the teaser photos offer some details. The most enigmatic picture simply shows the blurry image of what appears to be a blue Dodge Durango. It features a hood scoop and blacked-out details. Whatever is in the engine bay should be exciting.
There’s also a tuned Ram Power Wagon coming to SEMA. The image doesn’t show the front of the Ram pickup, but there’s gargantuan wing on the back. We hope this truck has a power upgrade that suits the ostentatious body.
A matte black Dodge Challenger has a stealthier look for the show. Glossy black and red stripes provide visual extra texture to the body. The badge on the shaker hood scoop indicates that a 392-cubic-inch (6.4-liter) Hemi V8 provides the power.
The Jeep Wrangler with a CJ Sixty Six decal on the hood looks to pay homage to the company’s classic off-roaders but with a modern twist. For example, it appears to have LED headlights. The louvers in the black hood hint at the possibility of a more powerful engine, too. At least in the rendering, the bronze paint looks fantastic, and we can’t wait to see this vehicle in real life.
Finally, there’s a Chrysler Pacifica with Mopar-themed exterior. Other than the wheels, there doesn’t seem to be any obvious upgrades. However, the paddle board that appears on the side suggests the interior might have mounts for carrying one inside.
Motor1 will have a crew at this year’s SEMA Show. Look forward to full coverage here of the automotive aftermarket extravaganza.
