Fridays on the Jeep® Blog, we’re featuring some of our favorite concept vehicles. This week, check out the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Stitch concept model.
Introduced at the 2013 Moab Easter Jeep Safari, the Jeep Wrangler Stitch concept vehicle was an immediate hit. The vehicle was essentially a lighter version of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.
To help reduce weight, the Wrangler Stitch concept vehicle had no air conditioning unit, doors, or typical roof. Instead, a lighter roll cage was added. The floor of the vehicle and the fuel tank were both made out of aluminum, and the normal hood was replaced with a lighter carbon-fiber version.
The Wrangler Stitch concept vehicle received several Mopar® upgrades to help with its off-road capabilities, including DynaTrac Pro Rock 44 axles and 35-inch tires. The lightness of the vehicle helped it to move swiftly through rough terrain and over rock.
Inside, the Wrangler Stitch concept vehicle featured front black leather seats and a yellow instrument panel. The back seats had been removed.
