Every year the Jeep team works to push the limits of new and capable concept vehicles to take on the outdoors. They release these vehicles at a yearly event in Utah called the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab. This year, Jeep celebrates 75 years in the auto industry with seven brilliant trucks we would surely like to get out hands on. One, in particular, the Crew Chief 715 is a concept built to salute the legendary Jeep military service vehicles, the Kaiser M715 in particular.
For the design, Jeep looked to utilize modern-day construction while staying close to their classic military roots. In doing so, they opened up rear seating capabilities with extra doors for the additional passengers. Also, the Crew Chief features Jeep Performance Parts off-road rock rails, a winch mounted in the front and rear bumpers along with a 4-inch lift kit among other features. Under the hood, the 715 is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine and mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle will be on display this spring, and we’re hoping it somehow makes it way to the production line in due time.
