Inside, the Overlook is meant to be a luxury vehicle, with leather seats and suede accents. Apart from the suspension, no other mechanical changes were mentioned and the engine of this Jeep is unclear. Seeing as something of a fancy Jeep, it has an automatic transmission.
Over the years, a few aftermarket companies have offered three-row versions of the Wrangler, but they typically feature extended wheelbases and are very clunky. By lengthening the vehicle’s body but not its wheelbase, the Jeep team were able to maintain the Wrangler’s pleasing proportions while still providing ample interior space for a few more passengers.
Other small additions like new LED lights, updated bumpers, and a rear-mounted spare complete the picture. Since this is only a concept, it’s unclear if Jeep actually plans to sell something like this. Would it be a success? We think the company would likely sell more than they think they do.
Jeep’s other three SEMA specials don’t shine as bright as the Overlook, but the 1965 Kaiser Jeep M725 concept is worth mentioning. This is a classic 1965 Jeep Kaiser that was originally an ambulance. It has been transformed into a “support vehicle”, essentially an all-terrain movable bar. It has a retractable roof so people can stand inside to serve drinks, two working taps as well as plenty of storage for other drinks, and a retractable panel on the side of the vehicle to dispense said drinks. It is also not original on the transmission / suspension side. The frame is reinforced and a heavy-duty suspension is also added, all to ensure that the new 392 Hemi doesn’t cause any damage by sending 485 horsepower to the four 40-inch tires.
The center console / gear lever bracket is also an ammo box. A fitting touch for a classic military Jeep.
