I like to let the stages breathe for about 30 minutes before I attempt to approach. As you can tell by these images that still didn't mean there were any less suits on stage. Everyone was oogling these three concepts. The Gladiator was the most impressive in that I think it could (and definitely should) hit production before the end of the decade. I passed an old-school Jeep pick-up on the way into town and think it is definitely time to bring the genre back to Jeep.

I?m not quite sure what this half door on the bottom of the back door is for. Waste disposal? But that would be littering wouldn?t it?

The Firepower just didn?t impress me in the least. We?ve seen it all before and while it may be more feasible than the last high-powered concept Chrysler put on this stage it still won?t sell. I think Chrysler should come up with a Viper replacement instead.

And then there?s the weird looking Hurricane concept. It makes zero sense from every angle. Oh well I guess it still has a Hemi. Two actually. Although that doesn?t make it twice as cool a concept. Chrysler?s score is 1-2 for the day.
