The Jeep Chief concept was a concept vehicle developed by Jeep
for the 2015 Easter Jeep Safari. The concept was one of seven special
Jeep's the company created for the event, each one celebrating a different
Jeep tradition or model. The Jeep Chief Concept was designed as a
tribute to the classic 1970s full-size Jeep Cherokee.
Based on a modern Jeep Wrangler, the Jeep Chief concept features retro-inspired
bodywork, as well as a mild custom look influenced by the west coast
surfer lifestyle. Custom exterior design cues include a chopped roof,
Ocean Blue paintwork with complimenting white roof and pinstripe,
a razor grille and halogen headlights, chrome bumpers and '70s style
slotted mag wheels. The concept is also fitted with a 2-inch lift
kit, Fox shocks, front and rear Dana 44 axles and a cold air intake.
The interior of the Jeep Chief concept has a Hawaiian theme, including
floral patterns on the seats and a dashboard which has been sticker
bombed. There is also rosewood trim and a carved wood gear knob. Despite
its vintage appearance, the occupants are treated to a Uconnect 8.4-inch
touchscreen infotainment system.
Powering the Jeep Chief concept is a 3.6 liter V6 mated to a six-speed
