Mopar teases a whole family of concepts for SEMA

Whether you're looking for a modded minivan or a pumped-up Power Wagon, FCA's parts division is ready to roll out some gnarly concepts.

Well, this sure doesn't seem like your average Jeep Wrangler...

Fiat Chrysler

If there's one automaker that really invests in the SEMA aftermarket trade show, it's Fiat Chrysler. It tends to go all-out for the show, and this year looks to be no exception.

The conglomerate incorporates Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Chrysler and others, and it's sent out five teaser images of upcoming concepts ahead of their actual debut on November 1. Not all of its models are represented in this set, and I should know because I've seen 'em all already.

Of course, I can't tell you exactly what's in store -- it's far too early in my career to burn bridges. But I can give you some hints. As you can tell, every vehicle has its roots in a modern model, whether it's a Chrysler Pacifica, Dodge Durango or Jeep Wrangler.

Some parts raise questions, though. Why is that Challenger's hood so long, and why doesn't it look like a Challenger beyond the headlights? Why is that Ram Power Wagon jacked to the sky, and what's that thing on the back? What sort of modifications exist on that Pacifica other than a gnarly vinyl wrap? I know, but I can't tell you until next week.

You'll get all the answers on November 1 at 4:26 p.m. PT or 7:26 p.m. ET. Yes, that's an oddly specific time, but considering FCA's love of the 426-cubic-inch Hemi V8, it shouldn't come as a surprise. In the meantime, feel free to speculate wildly about the concepts in the comments below.
