“Jeep Hurricane is simply the most maneuverable, most capable, and most powerful 4×4 ever built.” – Trevor Creed, Senior Vice president of Chrysler Group
Jeep is always turning heads with their innovative builds and groundbreaking concept vehicles. Let’s take a trip down memory lane, remember the 2005 Jeep Hurricane? This particular concept was built to dominate the off-road scene and it would have if there were more in circulation.
The Hurricane reflects Chrysler’s ability to remain progressive while still holding a focus on technologically-precise engineering. Powering this off-road arachnid are two 335 horsepower, 5.7 Liter HEMI engines mounted in the front and rear.
Trevor Creed, Senior Vice president of Chrysler Group design, states, ‘Jeep Hurricane is simply the most maneuverable, most capable, and most powerful 4×4 ever built. It pays homage to the extreme enthusiasts’ Jeep vehicles in form and off-road capability but is a unique interpretation of Jeep design. Simply stated, it is an extreme example of the Jeep brand.’
“Out in the wilderness, changing direction in minimal space can mean the difference between an afternoon of adventure and a distress call back to the trailhead. The multi-mode four-wheel steering system on Jeep Hurricane is designed to offer enthusiasts the next level of performance and unexpected maneuverability.” – Trevor Creed, continued.
The minimalistic interior design is the perfect blend of simplicity and aesthetic class. Polished aluminum with Black Thunder & Tialuminum accents give the interior a very inviting and comfortable feel.
Power is sent to all 4 wheels through a 5-speed automatic transmission. The Hurricane is equipped with automatic cylinder deactivation for both engines. It is capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds. To top it off, the Hurricane’s one-piece body is composed largely of light-weight structural carbon fiber, making this truck as lightweight as it is durable.
If you are the type of person looking for luxury and comfort, then the Jeep Hurricane is not the vehicle for you. Unless your idea of luxury and comfort involves tracking mud all over the seat during an awkward climb over doors that don’t open. Did we mention it’s also a convertible? Nothing makes me feel more luxurious than getting pelted in the face with road debris or having an angry wasp fly up my shirt at 60 mph. However, those are hypothetical situations I’d gladly risk for a spin in this beast.
