Chinese-Inspired Jeep Design Concepts Bow in Beijing

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 4/20/2014 Karla Sanchez

Jeep has been mighty busy preparing all sorts of concepts, first with the Moab Easter Jeep Safari concepts, and now with four other design concepts. Although all of them are completely different, they're all inspired by Chinese culture. The Design concepts are based off the new Jeep Renegade, Cherokee, and Wrangler. Check out the quirky designs each concept has to offer below.

Jeep Zi You Xia Design Concept
This Renegade is a rebel. Zi You Xia translates to "rebel" and as such, is painted in a Warm Chocolate gray color inspired by the National Center for Performing Arts in Beijing. Certain elements like the front grille, fog light bezels, lower rear fascia, skidplate, tailiight bezels, and badge are finished in Dark Anodized Bronze to contrast with the gray color. Dark Charcoal is also part of the color scheme and appears on the roof panel, front grille surrounds, and side mirror caps. Wheels are also finished in Anodized Bronze. Inside, colors like gray, black, copper, and bronze all tie together nicely with the rich brown leather upholstery, with "ombre" plaid fabric inserts on the door panels which was inspired from traditional menswear.

Jeep Cherokee Sageland Design Concept
Inspired by the historical landmarks and scenery through the Shangri-La region, the Sageland Design Concept shines brightly in an Ivory tri-coat Pearl color with bronze accents on the front and rear ends. The roof racks, side mirror caps, and exhaust tips are finished in Satin Bronze chrome. The earthy tones continue inside with light-gray Nappa leather seats with contrast red and blue stitching. The stitching is special in that it's inspired by Chinese knot design, while patterns on the door panels are supposed to mimic Chinese ornamental door knobs.

Jeep Cherokee Urbane Design Concept
As its name suggests, the Urbane Design Concept emulates the urban night life in a "modern megacity with glamour and elegance." Coated in Maximum Steel metallic paint, the Urbane concept looks sleek, especially with the Hyper black accents on the roof racks, side mirror caps, front grille, wheels, and badging. Chinese calligraphy decorates the interior on the door panels, bringing out the elegance the concept is trying convey. Dark red Nappa leather features bright red stitching, while the floor mats feature a unique decorative pattern inspired by traditional Chinese windows.

Jeep Wrangler Sundancer Design Concept
Although the Wrangler likes to get dirty, it still has a sophisticated a fashionable side, as shown on the Sundancer design concept. Painted in a tri-coat Chocolate Brown metallic color with gold accents, the Sundancer features unique fender flares that are finished in a "ghosted" bronze pattern in addition to bronze-tinted windows. LED headlights and taillights are also decorated with the same brown and bronze color scheme, but what really grabs your attention on this concept are the large 20-inch pale gold Billet wheels with polished gold inserts. Moving inside, the cabin features perforated seat inserts and berry-colored leather. Other leather-covered elements feature hand-sewn "provocateur lace stitching." Gold paint on the door handles, steering wheel bezel, grab handle, and gear shifter look good with the rest of the colors. There's even leather on the floor mats.
