Jeep Shortcut

Jeep have recently revealed this awesome little concept. The Jeep Shortcut is based on a modern Wrangler and invokes the spirit of 1950s Americana with a shortened body and functional simplicity. The ultra-capable off-roader started as a two-door Wrangler, but had 14 inches chopped out of the body making it more than two feet shorter than a standard Wrangler. The Shortcut also sheds its doors and roof, and has modifications such as a unique grille, hood, tailgate, wheel flares, custom chrome bumpers, 17-inch red steel wheels, and a modified exhaust. Under the hood there is a powerful 3.6L V6 engine mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. Fingers crossed and hoping this radical concept becomes a production reality.
