The Mopar brand released a teaser into what they have planned for the upcoming 2020 Chicago Auto Show, next month. The parts and accessories division of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) will showcase a new Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) limited-edition vehicle, which will be based on the iconic Jeep® Wrangler according to the teaser photo the brand released on Thursday.
You might recall, the Mopar has a knack for creating Mopar limited-edition vehicles once a year. Those vehicles have been based on various Chrysler, Dodge, and Ram Truck vehicles over the years. But the brand has never done anything surrounding any of the Jeep® lineups in the United States or Canada. The Mopar brand did release a special Jeep Wrangler 1941 Edition in overseas markets.
Mopar has had quite a few concept vehicles over the years, that have showcased a number of the JPP products available through the Mopar brand. But this would mark the first Jeep vehicle to feature the products in a limited-run production. Current Mopar offers more than 200 JPP parts, that are quality-tested, specifically designed, and engineered for off-road performance enthusiasts.
Last year, we had a chance to get up close and personal with one of these JPP-based concepts out on the famous Woodward Avenue. While it may be a long-distance from the trail, the JPP-equipped Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon definitely had a lot of off-road appeals, but really struck an accord on the street.
We can’t wait to see what Mopar has planned, especially if this vehicle comes to production.
