Trailhawk From Jeep Enters Naias Scene

By: Tracy Dawson

Many people are interested and many are quite on the lookout as per the kind of new vehicles the Jeep brand would be sending out to the industry. After all, despite having quite a few number of vehicles under its name, the Jeep name still has become popular because of the kind and quality of vehicles that the brand covers. Plus, this also does not include the other exceptional products like , Jeep miniature models, and other Jeep items.

Sure enough, many people would be rushing to the upcoming 2007 North American International Auto Show this coming January. The brand has already sent out a press release that they would be showing off one of the newest concept vehicles in the Jeep Range. This time, they call the new concept the Jeep Trailhawk and just like every other Jeep vehicle, this one has also been designed with the off road as its racetrack.

Those who were able to take a glimpse at the Jeep Trailhawk has said that this concept vehicle is a very good combination of the kind of frame and design that the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited has along with the kind of power that all Jeep vehicles have on the off road. It has also been created to be a sophisticated off road vehicle, with the exception that it comes as an open-air vehicle. Something really fresh and new for the brand.

Nick Vardis is the main designer of the Jeep Trailhawk's outer style and he shares, "The key to the look of the Trailhawk is the vehicle's distinctive proportions, due in part to its 116-inch wheelbase. The dash-to-front axle dimension is dramatically long, giving the vehicle a sense of forward motion, while the front and rear overhangs are tight and abbreviated." He even does add, "The flares are stretched and pulled taut at one end. Each presents a long side angled toward the center of the body."

Vardis also did continue to describe the Jeep Trailhawk with, "The main headlamp units are cropped diagonally across the top. They peer out from an angled brow, giving the vehicle its bold, sinister look. In front view, the left and right lamps evoke the hooded eyes of a bird of prey. Like other concepts, we first viewed the math surface of the grille and headlamps together in the computer. We immediately noticed the hawkish expression, hence the name Trailhawk."
