Mopar Reveals Six Star Concepts For This Year's SEMA

A few days ago, FCA teased some Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and RAM models ahead of their SEMA debut, and know it’s time to see what mods they bring to the table.

If you’re serious about modifying your car and then some, SEMA is the place to be – where aftermarket specialists come up with outrageous ideas, and car makers become tuners/customizers for a brief period of time.

Chrysler couldn’t pass the opportunity to show off what it can accomplish with its Mopar brand, that’s why the American conglomerate brought three two Dodge models, two RAM vehicles, a Jeep, and a minivan.

The latter is a Chrysler Pacifica Cadence that uses no less than 100 accessory parts from Mopar’s bin. It was created with an active lifestyle in mind (a paddleboarding theme, to be more precise), that’s why it sports Stow ‘n Go cargo bins, a Mopar/Thule paddleboard/surfboard carrier, and even a pet kennel. On the outside, its custom Mopar graphics wrap the quarter panels and rear-end, while the 20-inch wheels complete the overall look.

The RAM ProMaster Pit Stop and Macho Power Wagon were both created to satisfy the need of adventure. While the latter is a throwback to the 1970s popular Power Wagon trim, emphasizing off-road capabilities thanks to its lifted suspension and bead lock wheels, the ProMaster Pit Stop is the Route-66, mobile bar you’ve always dreamed of. It comes with refrigeration capacity to serve cold beverages, as well as cue ball and pistol grip shifters to help dish out drinks.

Jeep’s contribution to the show is a Wrangler TJ frame with a 1966 Jeep Wrangler CJ universal Tuxedo Park body on it and a few Wrangler JK elements. It uses a six-speed manual transmission and comes equipped with a Mopar cold-air intake, a Mopar cat-back exhaust, and front and rear Mopar Dana 44 Crate axles – making it the perfect rock crawler.

Last but not least we have the Dodge Shakedown Challenger and the Durango Shaker, two vehicles with nothing but power in mind. The three-row SUV comes with a custom-fabricated, functional Shaker Hood that feeds a 6.4-liter HEMI engine. It’s also equipped with a functional Mopar cold-air intake, dropped 3 inches and riding on Satin Black 22-inch wheels.

The Challenger is actually a classic 1971 brought up to date by Mopar’s goodies. It features a 485 hp HEMI V8 under the hood, mated to a Viper Tremec T6060 six-speed transmission, as well as a custom exhausts, and a Brembo braking kit - among many other mods.
