DC Autoshow Jeep pics

Hey all, been posting some pics from the autoshow around the forums, here are some ones from the Jeep area - rode the Commander through the off-road course and got to check one out on the floor - very nice in person, liked the interior a lot. The new Wrangler was out, and so was the Compass (pic posted in General Chat). Enjoy!

I saw those at the Detroit show, but they have to be some of the best Jeeps I've ever seen:hi: :cool2:

What else did they have in Detroit? The focus of the DC show was really Commander heavy - they had one on the off road course, and then a few on the floor that you could get in, which was cool since I hadn't gotten a chance to get in one yet, I was climbing on it like a four year old :thumbs: . Other than that it seemed pretty standard, they had the new Wrangler, Cherokee, Rubicon, etc. then the Compass and the Hurricane concept (not for touching)... anything else in Detroit?

I agree, IMO, Jeeps of old were bland and unexciting. I think that new batch looks fresh and exciting :thumbs:

It was mainly focused on concepts, like Toyota's hybrid, getting (don't quote me on this, but something like) 40 miles to the gallon, and doing 0-60 in 4 seconds, but also some of the classics that are there every year, like the Maybachs, Bentleys, Ferraris, etc...But there were also some that were new and going into productions, I know I saw a couple of Bimmers like that...No real theme, but Chrysler did have a giante display, especially with their Caliber, and there was the world premiere of this:
Can't remember the name now, and it's killing me :ohcrap:

I agree, saw the Commander concept back in the day in Detroit and love the way it turned out - little old, little new, very Jeep! Thanks for the run down on Detroit Chris, I know that there are generally a ton more concepts there than at the other shows and the companies go all out with their displays, which definitely makes it more fun and interesting. I know people who live in MI that go several times to see everything! Some of the DC displays were pretty :sleep: - just looked like a dealership in some areas!
