Peugeot Rifter 4×4 Concept – Video
The PEUGEOT RIFTER 4×4 CONCEPT is presented in a defined and unprecedented shade of spangled grey that provides the perfect showcase for its robust look, designed for adventure.
The mat black plate between the radiator grill and the boot effectively protects the front of the vehicle against spatter. The PEUGEOT RIFTER 4×4 CONCEPT has the full works with its tailgate, also in mat black.
Several ONYX black elements were taken from the production vehicle and used on the wing mirrors, the radiator grill and even the roof bars, to complete the look. The ONYX black diamanté, varnished 16-inch wheel rims give the vehicle extra attitude.
This show-car is lit up by the addition of several anodised yellow satin notes that punctuate the PEUGEOT RIFTER 4×4 CONCEPT from all sides:
At the front, there is yellow on the fog lights, the “PEUGEOT” lettering background of the radiator grill and even on the mat black area of the boot.
On the sides, the dynamic vertical strips at the rear of the sliding door bear the RIFTER signature with pride.
At the rear, the RIFTER name crosses the rear window.
The ridged stickers with a smoked chrome finish create rear wings up until the roof and produce a more dynamic silhouette.
The DANGEL logo has been redesigned with yellow touches, and will appear on all future creations of the car manufacturer from now on (but without the specific yellow paint).
The interior also boasts different colours and materials. The branded RIFTER chairs blend an embossed flecked grey textile with black alcantara. They are overstitched with a bright yellow thread, which is also found on the gussets of the gear lever. The yellow borders, made of “neoprene” type “flex” material recalls the bodywork colour.
The steering wheel of the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit® is made of leather that is also overstitched with yellow and bears a PEUGEOT marking of the same shade. The sophisticated dashboard design boasts satin grey decorative items specially for the occasion and uses the same smoked chrome strips as the exterior.
The generous inserts in solid machined aluminium strengthens the style of the centre console and the door panels. The brushed aluminium reveals the RIFTER name and plays with surfaces and reflections.
The PEUGEOT RIFTER 4×4 CONCEPT is a novel way or reaching new horizons and is much more than an expression of style. Its mission is to be just as much in its element on gravel, in mud and in snow, as on stony paths.
Therefore, it is fitted with full-wheel drive developed by DANGEL, the brand’s historic, expert partner that specialises in four-wheel drive transformation. The PEUGEOT RIFTER 4×4 CONCEPT raised 80 mm ground clearance allows the vehicle to overcome most obstacles.
The 4×4 transmission uses viscous coupling via a selector that is located at arm’s reach on the dashboard, to the right of the gear lever. There are 3 driving modes:
– the 2RM mode so you can drive in front-wheel drive mode for your everyday trips
– the 4RM mode where only the transmission powers the rear wheels in case of loss of motor function
– the Lock mode, to lock the rear axle, which is useful for extreme travel and crossing bridges
The 4 high performance tyres strengthen the effectiveness of the 4 wheels. PEUGEOT RIFTER 4×4 CONCEPT is fitted with all-terrain wheels provided by BF Goodrich. They combine solidity, endurance and style and provide excellent traction.
Even the strongest slopes will not slow you down. The BlueHDi 130 engine, with a manual six-speed gearbox, produces a comfortable 300Nm torque.
Along with the PEUGEOT i-Cockpit®, this drivetrain provides the RIFTER 4×4 CONCEPT with unprecedented driving accuracy and enjoyment an all adventure terrains.
