Shown at Chengdu Auto Show, Tomahawk is a custom-made Jeep Wrangler by a Chinese firm called G. Patton. It features an extra rear axle, making the standard Jeep Wrangler 4×4 into a 6×6. If G. Patton Tomahawk heads to production, sales will be exclusive to China.
The new adaptation is on the lines of the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6. Car News China reports the Tomahawk was created by cutting the Wrangler behind the C-pillar and adding an enclosed pickup truck bed.
Under the hood, the same Pentastar 3.6-litre V6 engine with a supercharger is seen. Power and torque figures are not revealed as of now.
The heavier vehicle’s exterior styling hasn’t been altered too much. Tomahawk does wear a new front fascia and grille and carries rear tweaks. A remote-controlled electric winch has been fitted. 17-inch alloy wheels support 35-inch Mickey Thompson tyres.
On the inside, the vehicle remains largely Jeep like while using orange styling inserts on leather work.
