Here’s one for the Secret Machine. As mentioned by the WagoneerFans forum and picked up by Motor1, Fiat Chrysler recently went on a 1-day trademark software spree at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Business office. On March 6, the automaker used for the names Apache, Farout, Orange Peelz, Shocker, Tomahawk, and Top Canine. All have been asked for for “Land automobiles, specifically, passenger vehicles,” and the most effective guess so much has them staying applied to principles throughout subsequent month’s Easter Jeep Safari, which, assuming it goes forward, will take place April 4-20. As for historical ties, just one name has a connection to Dodge, an additional was a codename for a Dodge engine, and a person was applied on a preceding Easter Jeep Safari concept.
Tomahawk rings the loudest bell, that title applied to the 4-wheeled, Viper-engined principle motorcycle that Dodge rolled out at the 2003 Detroit Vehicle Clearly show. The firm supposedly bought nine illustrations of the “rolling sculpture” by Neiman Marcus over a 4-yr time period. It isn’t going to show up FCA has applied the name considering that, internally or or else. There is, even so, a Cherokee tomahawk — not referring to a Jeep, but the mild, limited-managed ax made use of by the Native American Cherokee tribe. This a single appears to be created for Safari use.
Apache has a Dodge and a Jeep tie-in. At one time, Apache was the codename for the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 promoted as the 392 V8 on the Charger and Challenger R/T Scat Pack trims. That motor would make 485 horsepower and 475 pound-ft of torque. But Jeep confirmed a Wrangler Apache strategy (pictured) at the 2012 Easter Jeep Safari, developed with a Mopar conversion kit for a 6.4-liter Hemi creating 470 hp and 470 lb-ft. Mopar offered the V8 swap kits at the very least by 2016, but they seem to have fallen off the Mopar menu. At one particular time there had been rumors of a supercharged Apache with more than 600 horsepower, and would not that be a welcome surprise in Moab.
The Farout could be a much more or a lot less extreme overlanding get on past year’s Easter Jeep Safari Wayout concept, relying on whether or not a single considers “way” or “significantly” additional radical. The Shocker, Jeep may be dissatisfied to find out, previously has an outside the house website link in the Jeep Shocker stickers created for Wichita Point out lovers who like America’s 4×4.
As for Orange Peelz, it is really really close to Pedro’s bicycling degreaser known as Oranj Peelz, but a Jeep conception could be something. Other than possibly a paint coloration.
