Article by Andrew Christian, on April 10, 2014

It is that time of the year folks, when Jeep and Mopar brands join their forces in order to develop a variety of vehicles that will be introduced at the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. The first model that we will present you and will be revealed at the 2014 Easter Jeep Safari is the Jeep Cherokee Dakar.

This beast is wearing a Silver Steel Satin Gloss “coat” complemented by prototype Flame Red graphics found on the window and around the black hood graphic. The front grille features two prototype Flame Red inserts but also a prototype lower fascia trim.

Furthermore, the Cherokee Dakar is fitted for off-road action with Jeep Performance Parts rock rails, an oil pan skid plate, front suspension skid plate, two-piece fuel tank and underbody skid plates.

Wider fender flares can be easily observed as they give the crossover a tougher appearance. The new fender flares accommodate the Trailhawk 17-inch polished Satin clear coat wheels that feature two large Flame Red pockets.

The wheels are wrapped in larger 33-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires. In order to make the concept even more extreme, Jeep added a prototype Jeep Performance Parts lift kit and made additional suspension modifications. The rear end offers a new fascia that allows an even more a prototype Jeep Performance Parts lift kit.

Inside, the concept car comes with prototype Katzkin leather black seats with “Machined Gunmetal” inserts and Header Red stitching, which is also found on the steering wheel, armrest and shift boot.

The entertainment center gets Flame Red accents. Other interior highlights are the all-weather floor mats, bright door-sill guards with the Cherokee logo, a cargo tray for storage, and the JCMS with the Trailhawk bag, as well as the prototype Moab off-road bag.

Jeep Cherokee Dakar is the most extreme Cherokee ever

The Jeep Cherokee Dakar is the most extreme Cherokee ever. The Silver Steel Satin Gloss exterior skin is strikingly set off with prototype Flame Red graphics that encircle the window and wrap around the black hood graphic. The Trailhawk 17-inch polished Satin clear coat wheels feature two large Flame Red pockets, with the Cherokee nameplate also changed to a Flame Red hue.

Front-end features are enhanced by two prototype Flame Red inserts on the traditional Jeep seven-slot grille, as well as through a prototype lower fascia trim. Cherokee Dakar is fortified for off-road action, equipped with Jeep Performance Parts rock rails, an oil pan skid plate, front suspension skid plate, two-piece fuel tank and underbody skid plates.

Cherokee Dakar's wheel openings have been modified in order to accommodate larger 33-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires. The rough-and-ready look rises with a prototype Jeep Performance Parts lift kit, and additional suspension modifications help make it the most extreme Cherokee yet. Prototype wider fender flares with riveted bolts give a tougher appearance and also accommodate the wider track and larger tires. A prototype rear fascia allows for an even more aggressive departure angle and enhances the higher ride height. Cherokee Dakar's crawl ratio is 48:1, and estimated approach and departure angles are 32 and 39 degrees, respectively.

Inside, prototype Katzkin leather black seats with "Machined Gunmetal" inserts are heightened with Header Red stitching, which is also found on the steering wheel, armrest and shift boot. A Flame Red insert accents the entertainment center. Accessories showcased from the Mopar catalog include all-weather floor mats, bright door-sill guards with the Cherokee logo, a cargo tray for storage, and the JCMS with the Trailhawk bag, as well as the prototype Moab off-road bag.
