Jeep gives the M-715 Five-Quarter Concept the 707 hp treatment. With tons of added carbon fiber and the Hellcat engine, this year, FCA brought it’s best game to Moab for Easter Jeep Safari. Jeep released several concepts for the off-reading adventure, but the M-715 Five-Quarter is the most extreme.
The FCA designers started with an original 1968 M-715 and dropped in the company’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Hellcat engine with 707 horsepower. This powertrain makes for an impressive off-roading ride. Jeep replaced most of the original sheet metal components with sheet metal, plus a custom 6-foot aluminum bed. The M-715 has functional rock rails, modified Jeep Gladiator steel bumpers, new lights in both the front and rear, and a 3.5 inch convertible soft-top.
The designers replaced the leaf springs with heavy-duty link/coil suspension system to upgrade the chassis. The Dynatrac Pro-rock 60 front axle was pushed forward two inches, and in the rear, the axles are Dynatrac Pro-rock 80s. Huge 40-inch tires are running on 20-inch beadlock wheels. There is a hidden compartment with eight shot glasses and a bottle of scotch to be enjoyed when the run is done for the day.
Unfortunately, Jeep will not put the M-715 Five-Quarter concept into production. For now, the 707 hp Hellcat powered Jeep will remain a Moab mirage.
