Mopar in recent years has been bringing some serious muscle to the annual SEMA show. And some of the show cars have ended up as production models. Prime examples include the Dodge Viper ACR concept we saw in 2014 and the Dodge Challenger GT AWD concept we saw in 2015. The wide-body, all-wheel-drive Challenger concept isn’t in production yet, but it should be soon.
For the 2016 SEMA show, Mopar will have concepts based on vehicles from the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram brands. Some of them have been previewed in teaser form; they are based on the Chrysler Pacifica, Dodge Challenger SRT 392, Dodge Durango, Jeep Wrangler and Ram Power Wagon.
Mopar has built the concepts using a number of production and concept parts and accessories. The blacked-out Challenger SRT 392 looks to be the most promising. It looks to have a shaker hood and custom stripes. Under the hood will likely be the stock 485-horsepower 6.4-liter V-8.
The 2016 SEMA show is now less than a week away. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles [NYSE:FCAU] w ill have 14 vehicles on its stand including the five Mopar concepts previewed here.
