The Jeep® brand and Jeep® Performance Parts (JPP) by Mopar design teams created several one-of-a-kind rock-crawling and terrain-traversing vehicles that took four-wheeling to the next level on the legendary trails of Moab at the 57th annual Easter Jeep® Safari.
The Jeep® Wrangler 4xe Departure concept builds upon the iconic open-air cockpit of the best-selling and most capable PHEV in America with innovative and conceptual items from the JPP by Mopar design team.
The Jeep® Gladiator Sideburn concept, wearing a striking Solar Flash Yellow, explores new tools designed for the burgeoning interest in off-road adventure.
Third time’s a charm for this off-road beast. When the Jeep® design team began building the Jeep® Wrangler Magneto concept, the intention was always to use the platform to experiment, discover and push the boundaries of electrification. Updates to Jeep® Magneto this year include a new, more efficient motor that boosts the torque output to 900 lb.-ft., as well as updated programming, which results in a 20% increase in useable energy and range.
Originally introduced in 1981, the Jeep® Scrambler (CJ-8) was the Jeep® brand’s first convertible, compact truck. Highly capable and versatile, this unique small pickup truck was similar to the CJ-7, but featured a longer 103-inch wheelbase and a long rear overhang for increased cargo space. Fast forward four decades, the Jeep® Scrambler 392 concept builds on the fun, open-air origins of the CJ-8 with a powerful twist. Though a V-8 engine was never offered in the CJ-8, the 392 Scrambler concept offers impressive power and incredible torque with its 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 engine (470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque).
The Jeep® Cherokee 4xe concept began its life as a 1978 Jeep® Cherokee, which was affectionately blended with a 2022 Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon 4xe. The original Jeep® Cherokee was intended to take the Jeep® Cherokee SJ to the next level of performance, and that ethos rings true for this concept vehicle. The original body was heavily modified and the exterior fuses original proportions with a bright, unmistakably 1970s-theme multicolor paint scheme. While the ’78 Jeep® Cherokee 4xe concept looks similar to a vintage Jeep® Cherokee SJ at first glance, it has transformed into a modern, electrified, off-road performer.
Following the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the special-run, limited-edition Tuscadero exterior paint color that debuted in 2021 for Jeep® Wrangler models, the Jeep® design team decided to up the ante on this head-turning chromatic magenta color. The team drew a line in the Moab sand and decided it was time to flip the color’s perception and make it a lot tougher than expected. Enter this special Jeep® Wrangler Rubicon 4xe concept with its legendary electrified off-road capability, unapologetic color palette and a powerful platform for any adventure.
The Grand Wagoneer Overland concept leverages the all-new 3.0-liter Hurricane Twin Turbo 510 engine to lead adventure-seekers further off the beaten path. Delivering 510 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft. of torque, the powerful Hurricane engine offers premium performance while also delivering improved fuel economy versus many competitors’ naturally aspirated V-8 and boosted six-cylinder engines. The overlanding-inspired concept boasts an incredible amount of appointments inside and out. The concept’s main feature is a custom RedTail Overland Skyloft affixed to the top of the Grand Wagoneer’s roof. The carbon-fiber constructed Skyloft unfolds in around 10 seconds, either from the rear-gate mounted ladder or from the inside by simply pushing up with one arm.
