With the annual Moab Easter Safari’s 47th edition rapidly approaching, Jeep revealed six concept cars that will peak the interest of the fans.
Out of the six, only one is a Grand Cherokee with all the others being Wrangler concepts. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk concept will use the company’s V6 EcoDiesel engine. It will have 35 inch Mickey Thompson tires and 17-inch alloy Rubicon wheels.
The Jeep Wrangler Mopar Recon concept will be using a very powerful 6.4 liter HEMI V8 and a 5 speed automatic gear box. It will sit atop 39 inch off road tires and will have a modified bumper, and some prototype features like the headlamps, the wheels or the long arm kit.
As a worthy successor of the Pork Chop, the Jeep Wrangler Stitch is just around 1.4 tons. To do this, lots of weight had to be lost from the frame, the body, the interior or the axles. Also carbon fiber was a must. Sitting on 35 inch tires and 17 inch rims, the Jeep Stitch has a unique see-through fabric at the back.
The Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper II has a 5.7 liter HEMI V8 engine connected to a 5 speed automatic gear box. The tires on it are 40 inches and Jeep filled it with all sorts of performance parts.
The Jeep Wrangler Flattop sports a superior appearance, with a windowless hardtop and chopped B pillars. This makes it 2 inches shorter. It also uses 37 inch tires and a Warn Zeon winch for off roading.
Last but not least, Jeep Wrangler Slim is the image of weight loss, with both body and mechanics having shed some. It is run by a 3.6 liter V6 and uses 17 inch prototype wheels.
So if you like the annual event, you now know what to expect from Jeep.
