Mopar-Tuned Jeep Cherokee, Wrangler, and Renegade Debut in Frankfurt

SUVs receive special performance and design treatments.

Jeep unveiled three SUVs at the Frankfurt Motor Show, each featuring unique upgrades. The Jeep Cherokee KrawLer, Renegade Trailhawk, and Wrangler Rubicon Sunriser feature design and performance treatments to show off the different customization upgrades offered by Mopar.

Based on the Cherokee Trailhawk, the Cherokee KrawLer features a familiar 3.2-liter V-6 engine as well as unique “rock crawler” abilities. An upgraded suspension, higher ride, off-road tires, wider fenders, skid plates, and rock rails make this Cherokee more suited for tackling the great outdoors. Design-wise, the KrawLer features a military-inspired green body color along with a quartz gray interior.

Also included in Jeep’s Frankfurt lineup is the Wrangler Rubicon Sunriser, the most colorful of the bunch. Along with its bright orange paintwork, this bruiser features a 4-inch lifted suspension, LED lights, and a double tow hook up front. In contrast to its rugged exterior, the cabin is lined with black leather. The model also includes an engine skid plate and beadlock wheels, fixing the tire bead to the rim to prevent tire removal when driving over rocks, sand, or mud. Under the hood lies a 2.8-liter CRD turbodiesel engine, which is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission.

Finally Jeep brought an accessorized version of the smaller, off-road-oriented Renegade Trailhawk, which gets more subtle modifications. This Mopar-ized car gaining underbody skid plates, 17-inch aluminum alloy rims, two rear tow hooks, and an Anvil-colored paint scheme, along with Jeep design mats and sport pedals on the inside.
