The Jeep Willys2 is a concept car made by the Chrysler Group. It was presented at the 2001 Tokyo Auto Show. It is based on the Willys MB. The Willys2 uses frame web technology and a one-piece carbon-fiber body. It looks like a newer, meaner version of the Liberty. The Willys2 took many design cues from other Jeep models such as the special seven-slot grille and trapezoidal wheel arches. The Willys2 weighs about 3000 pounds with its removable carbon-fiber top. Its 160-hp I4 engine can accelerate it from 0 to 60 mph in 10 seconds, to a top speed of about 90 mph. The interior is all plastic, and it is possible to clean the interior by spraying it with water.[2] Part of the design of the Willys2 was incorporated into the Jeep Liberty.[1]
