The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Apache by Mopar

The 2012 Jeep Wrangler Apache could be a hint to the Mopar 13

This past weekend at the 2012 Woodward Dream Cruise, the massive Chrysler Group display at 13 Miles Road and Woodward Ave had an area with the customized Mopar vehicles sporting their model year alongside the 2012 Jeep Wrangler Apache by Mopar which shares the black and blue paint scheme – leaving some to wonder if this could be a hint as to the future of the Mopar vehicle lineup.

Chrysler’s Mopar division is best known for their supply of OEM replacement parts and high performance components ranging from cold air intakes to crate engines but beginning in 2012, the Mopar division began offering their own limited edition, customized versions of company products. At first there was the Mopar 10 based on the Dodge Challenger followed by the Charger based Mopar 11 and the Chrysler 300C based Mopar 12. After the Challenger was featured in 2010, many expected that the Charger would be the Mopar 11 – and it was. However, prior to the debut of the Mopar 12 based on the Chrysler 300C there was a great deal of speculation as to what vehicle the Mopar 12 would use for its basis with some wondering if it would be a Ram, a Fiat 500, or a Jeep with that speculation put to rest when the Mopar 12 was unveiled.

Now that the Chrysler Group has used all three of the vehicles that use the similar chassis, Mopar enthusiasts are left to question what company vehicle could be used for a Mopar 13. Discussions point out the obvious interests in Mopar-tuned versions of the Ram 1500, the Dodge Durango, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the new Fiat 500 but what if the Mopar division has already offered a hint as to what is coming next?

I have a 1970 Roadrunner with 77,000 original miles, 383, and all the nbeumrs match. Brown, airgrabber, pistol grip shifter. Has been parked in a barn since 1981. It cleaned up really nice. It has new tires and exhaust. Make an offer.
