sevenservices I always liked 'em... I was on the Global Network support team at DCX (DaimlerChrysler) when it was unveiled. They would drive 'em through the tech center in Auburn Hills all the time. It was a pretty cool part of the job getting to see things like the PT Cruiser, Hurricane, Prowler, Copperhead, etc... all a couple years before they hit the auto shows. For a couple years down there I supported the design area where they make the clay model cars and such, life size. Very, very cool stuff. They'd even fire up the Nascars and the Nascar trucks and roll through the headquarters sometimes for special events at the center gathering area.


I really did'nt want to leave Chrysler at the time, but my commute went from 82 miles down to 4.5 miles. How can you turn that down??? An extra two to three hours of "life" everyday, hell yeah, I'll take it. And with the auto industry in trouble, it probably was not to bad of a move.

PTaylor It looks fun.

I remember when this was unveiled, along with the Jeep Gladiator:

The gladiator is the one I like. It's so damn ugly, yet it's a Jeep. I think this is where the Brute conversion ideas came from.

I don't like the location of the spare tire though.

I'm pretty sure they have NO plans to manufacture it, it was only a concept vehicle.

Here's some more info/pics for you.

Jeep Hurricane...What do you think

What do you think about the Jeep Hurricane? I think it looks pretty cool myself.







One Sweet Jeep

Show-stopping concepts and extreme expressions of the Chrysler Group LLC brands aren't new: Dodge had its Tomahawk and Chrysler, the ME Four-Twelve. But when the Jeep® Hurricane blew onto Auto Show stage, it raised the bar for the Jeep brand.

"Jeep Hurricane is simply the most maneuverable, most capable and most powerful 4x4 ever built," said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President—Chrysler Group LLC Design. "It pays homage to the extreme enthusiasts' Jeep vehicles in form and off-road capability, but is a unique interpretation of Jeep design. Simply stated, it is the extreme example for the Jeep brand."

Hurricane represents the continued success of bold concept vehicles for the brands as a means of demonstrating Chrysler Group LLC's creative and mechanical expertise. For example, powerful powertrain performance is an understatement considering the Hurricane is not just HEMI®-equipped, but HEMI squared. There are two 5.7-liter HEMI engines in the vehicle: one in the front and one in the back. Both engines deliver 335 horsepower and 370 lb-ft of torque—a total of 670 hp and 740 lb-ft of torque.

Can you have responsible excess? To test the theory, we equipped both HEMI engines in the Jeep Hurricane with the Chrysler Group LLC Multi-Displacement System (MDS). Depending on the driver's needs, the Hurricane can be powered by 4-, 8-, 12- or 16-cylinders. All of that translates into buckets of torque for climbing obstacles other 4x4 vehicles can't even comprehend. In addition, it has the power and traction to move from 0-60 in less than five seconds.

The power is delivered through a central transfer case and split axles with a mechanically controlled four-wheel torque distribution system. The front and rear suspension is short/long arm independent with 20 inches of suspension travel, controlled by coilover shocks with remote reservoirs.

The design is lightweight with high strength, and it boasts a functional appearance. Jeep Hurricane is an honest, minimalist approach to its design augmented with the Jeep signature seven-slot grille, two seats and no doors. On the inside, occupants will be surrounded by exposed carbon fiber and polished aluminum with Black Thunder and Tiluminum accents.
