Jeep is using the 2012 Houston Auto Show and 2012 Washington D.C. Auto Show to unveil a new production-intent concept. Based on the Grand Cherokee Laredo X
model, what we have here is a mostly blacked-out version of Jeep's flagship product, with a few highlights in a finish Jeep calls Platinum Chrome.
Included in the blackout are the front grille (with Platinum Chrome mesh inserts), headlamp bezels and liftgate light bar. Platinum Chrome is also used on the lower front fascia. Unique to this model are 20-inch gloss black aluminum wheels in a split five-spoke design. This new Grand Cherokee concept will be shown in both Brilliant Black and Deep Cherry Red.
Curious why it's only known as the "Grand Cherokee Production-Intent Concept"? That's because there will be an online contest to help determine its official moniker. Will it be the Stealth, Noir, Dirty Dirty or the Back-in-Black edition? How about our personal favorite, the Grand Cherokee Emo Edition? That's for voters to decide. The winner "will have a chance to win a new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee," says Jeep in the official press release after the break
Hmmm...I wouldn't mind a new one of these Grand Cherokees from Fiat/Chrysler/Jeep in black with hemi, tow package, navigation, sunroof, and power liftgate...for coming up with the idea/concept.
Another idea I have is for the seats to be like the 70th Anniversay Edition (with edge welting and perforations), but the accent color to be black. Black on black. Along with my earlier posted idea of making the Applique Aluminum in solid Gloss Black with chrome (or platinum chrome) below it.
