Fridays on the Jeep® Blog, we’re featuring some of our favorite concept vehicles. This week, check out the 2013 Jeep Mighty FC concept model.
The Mighty FC concept vehicle made its debut at the 2013 Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Stemming from the ideas of the Jeep Forward Control (1956–1965), the Mighty FC was a front-heavy vehicle meant to take on the most rugged trails.
Based on a two-door Jeep Wrangler, the Mighty FC paid homage to the Forward Control with its front-end design. The cabin was based off of a Jeep Wrangler and included a roof from the Mopar® JK-8 pickup kit.
Part of the Mighty FC’s superior off-road capability was due to the use of the Mopar® Portal Axle set. The vehicle was also given a set of 40-inch tires and a wheelbase of 117 inches, which added to its ability to conquer the trails. Under the hood, the Mighty FC had a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 3.6-liter V6 engine and automatic transmission.
Inside, the Jeep Mighty FC was Wrangler-based. It had a roomy interior with plaid upholstery covering the seats and steering wheel.
