Chrysler has revealed four Mopar-modified vehicles that will be heading to this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

20 vehicles in total will be sprawled out at Chrysler’s 15,300 square-foot SEMA Show display, and the American automaker has given us a brief preview of four of those vehicles, sporting modifications by Mopar.

2013 SEMA Show Coverage

The first of those four is the Jeep Cherokee Trail Carver, featuring the brand’s Trailhawk 4×4 package. The Cherokee Trail Carver is finished in Auburn Pearl paint with low-gloss black and Granite Crystal accents. Giving it a unique appearance are Crush Orange contrasting pieces such as the tow hooks while aggressive tires highlight the Jeep’s off-road capabilities.

Next up is the custom Fiat 500L Adventurer, built to show off the versatility of the Italian automaker’s five seater. Modifications done have given the 500L Adventurer a more tough and rugged appearance starting with its two-tone accent wheel flares and rockers painted in Satin Black to contrast the Bright White exterior. Vibrance Bright Orange can be seen on the roof of the 500L while 18×7.5-inch wheels adorn each corner.

Mopar also gave its touches to the Chrysler 300S which features an elegant yet subtly menacing style. Up front is a 13-bar black “Gotham” grille surround while the 300S clings closer to the ground thanks to a lowering kit. Wheels setting off the car were pulled from the John Varvatos Limited Edition 300C in a 20×8-inch variety. Luxurious touches have been done to the interior, giving the 300S a Katzkin “Bisque” leather interior.

Lastly, there’s the Ram Sun Chaser, a custom Ram 1500 Quad Cab featuring a Vibrance Orange Blast finish with two-tone Brilliant Black accents. Making the truck unique is a concept Mopar roof rack, being called the “surf rack,” while a pair of adjustable support rails housed within the tracks of the truck’s bed offers the ability to carry a long surfboard. New concept 17×8-inch beadlock wheels with color-keyed rings give the Ram Sun Chaser a bit of style while the flares with exposed fasteners fit the sand dune-ready theme Mopar was going for.
