Jeep Wrangler Gets Hardcore 6x6 Upgrade

Off-Road / Comments

Because the G63 6x6 is too fancy to kill zombies.

When it comes to hardcore off-roaders, a short wheelbase is everything. That's why a two-door Jeep Wrangler will scamper over anything without breaking a sweat, and why it's the most customized vehicle around for those in the off-road scene. But there exists a unique facet in the off-road sphere that fetishizes longer wheelbase models with not just four wheels, but six.

The Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6 arguably pioneered the fashion, but others have followed suit, with Hennessey offering a number of 6x6 conversions including the F-150 Raptor-based VelociRaptor 6x6. But an American firm by the name of SoFlo Jeeps feels the Wrangler is the best candidate for a 6x6 conversion, complete with a hybrid turbo-diesel engine with heaps of torque that can take on anything.

It's not the first time we've seen a Jeep 6x6, but previous efforts were powered by Hellcat motors and were more show than go. The SoFlo E 6x6 is different in that it's ready to conquer the zombie apocalypse, with a heap load of development going into the suspension and drivetrain development to ensure they'll withstand the toughest punishment. Beneath the hood is a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 paired with an electric motor, and while no power figures are given, it produces a combined 700 lb-ft of torque, sent to all six massive all-terrain tires at the end of Falcon shocks and a five-inch suspension lift.

It gets a visual overhaul for added drama, too, including color-changing LED halo daytime running lights and an angry front fascia and a steel Grumper front end, while around the windscreen is a steel armor ViCowl. The front bumper gets an integrated 9,500-pound winch, too, aiding capability when the going really gets tough. Inside, the E 6x6 is surprisingly luxurious, with a removable custom made top and a quilted leather interior that's fully waterproof.

How much does this all cost? Well, each one is custom made, and prices start at an insane $145,000. However, that's far less than what you'll pay for an AMG 63 6x6, while a Hennessey Goliath 6x6 based on the Chevrolet Silverado starts at $375,000 and the Hennessey VelociRaptor starts at $349,000.
