The Jeep Crew Chief 715 Concept Offers a Glimpse of Things to Come
Regina and Moose Jaw drivers excited about the upcoming Wrangler pickup should check out the Jeep Crew Chief 715 Concept. It will heavily inspire the design of the long-awaited Jeep Wrangler pickup that has now been confirmed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles boss Sergio Marchionne, and was one of the seven concept vehicles shown at Jeep’s annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah.
Though the Wrangler pickup will be inspired by more than just the Crew Chief 715 Concept, it’s thrilling to get a taste of things to come.
The Crew Chief 715 Concept
Any Jeep enthusiasts from Regina and Moose Jaw might have guessed that the Jeep Crew Chief 715 Concept takes its name from the Kaiser M715 Army truck, and it bears more than a passing resemblance to Jeep’s Gladiator pickup of the 1960s. However, while this concept model might evoke the past, it has been confirmed that its design heavily hints at what we can look forward to from the upcoming Jeep Wrangler pickup.
The Crew Chief certainly looks like something that drivers across the country would like to find in their driveways. It boasts a lift kit to help fit the military-style tires, a convertible roof, dual front bumpers, and a bold logo stenciled on the rear. Appearing to sport a V6 with cold air intake and new exhaust, it’s a promising sign of things to come.
The Jeep Wrangler Pickup
Jeep is concentrating hard on the new Wrangler lineup, which is expected to offer larger dimensions and embrace stronger efficiency ratings than previous models.
Of course, it was the announcement of a pickup variant that really turned heads — this is something that Jeep enthusiasts have been anticipating for years. The Crew Chief provides some hints of what to expect, namely that we are likely to see a crew cab with four doors, plus an extreme level of capability. However, we can’t be too sure of what’s to come from that concept alone — Jeep has mentioned that they are moving away from the retro design elements so evident in the Crew Chief 715.
