Chinese firm G. Patton builds 6-wheeled Jeep Wrangler

Remember the six-wheeled Mercedes-Benz G-Class? Of course you do, because it’s awesome! It’s also awesomely expensive. Perhaps we’ve found something similar that’s a bit closer to your budget. This is the G. Patton Tomahawk, and it’s a 6×6 Jeep Wrangler built in China.

CarScoops uncovered this beastly looking machine, which was showcased at the Chengdu Auto Show. Digging deeper, however, we find that Car News China has gotten up close with the six-wheeled machine and it sounds like it may be a muddled composition.

The basics here are that the G. Patton Tomahawk that started out as a standard four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Everything rear of the C-pillar was chopped off, and a truck bed was grafted in its place along with the extra axle. You can see in the photos on Car News China that the rear wheel arch looks a bit off, and they said the fender badging and rear wheels look a bit off.

Under the hood, G. Patton has beefed up the engine by adding a supercharger. Inside, it’s gone with a unique seat layout that a dictator might enjoy. We’d love to get a closer look at this one to admire the build quality with our own eyes, but we’re going to have to go with Car News China on this one.

The idea is very cool. The execution, however, appears to be lacking.
