The Icon prototype is wider and shorter than the Wrangler, and has wheel travel increased from eight to 10 inches. Although it has a unibody construction with an integrated aluminum roll cage, it keeps traditional Jeep design elements such as the grille, exposed hinges and door handles, and folding windshield. Icon Designer Robert Laster says he was inspired by high-end mountain bikes. Its seats are exposed aluminum tubes supporting waterproofed leather upholstery. It has a 2.4 liter four-cylinder engine, a 5-speed transmission, and double wishbone suspension. (Jeep Corporation)
