Jeep® Concept Friday – 2005 Hurricane

Fridays on the Jeep® Blog, we’re featuring some of our favorite concept vehicles. This week, check out the 2005 Jeep Hurricane concept model.

In 2005, the Jeep Hurricane took the North American International Auto Show by storm, as would any vehicle with not one, but two 5.7-liter HEMI® engines. This means the Hurricane delivered a total of 670 horsepower and could be powered by 4, 8, 12 or 16 cylinders.

The Hurricane had the ability to turn both its front and rear tires inward, greatly reducing the turning circle of the vehicle. With approach/departure angles of 64.0/86.7 degrees, this vehicle was made to hit the trails.

Designed to be both lightweight and strong, the one-piece carbon fiber body had no side doors or roof. The underside of the vehicle featured a complete skid plate system.

What do you think about the Jeep Hurricane concept vehicle? Keep checking back to the Jeep Blog for more Concept Friday posts!

    I remember seeing that vehicle at the autoshow, and was drooling over it the whole time. I wish they would have actually gone into production, but the price would probably be out of my reach.

    Was organizing office and came across a photo/print of this concept Jeep. It was a cut out from (I think) a Maxim magazine. Had not seen the photo in for years but had the same reaction I had when I first saw it. Return it to file. I currently own a 2011 Jeep Sahara and love it.

  4. In the name of all that is good, why has this not been mass produced? I’d sell my house to pay for one.

    What about making this concept into a high end Jeep limited production. I am looking for a turn key trail vehicle for camping in out of the way locations.
