2017 Jeep Easter Safari Concepts

Apr 13, 2017

Category: Rides

Every April for the past 51 years, Jeep has debuted several concept off-road vehicles for their annual Easter Jeep Safari. And for the past 15 of those 51 years, they’ve teamed up with Mopar for this event. The series lasts from April 8-16 and is now attended by thousands of enthusiastic off-road fans enjoying some of the finest off-roading in the country’s most dynamic and challenging courses in Moab, Utah.

This year is no slouch either, with a series of concept Jeeps that are bound to perform well in the event’s gauntlet of runs. Jeep utilized a series of prototype performance parts in this year’s collection as well, not only meeting but surpassing the expectations attendees have for these insane overland-capable vehicles. Not only does this event draw sheer attention to these amazing vehicles, but also demonstrates how Jeep fans can utilize some of these performance parts for their own benefit, on their personal vehicles, on their local trails. However, that’s not to detract from the ingenuity that went into these rides, and 2017 looks to be as good a year as ever for Jeep.

Safari

For this family-focused concept – dubbed the Jeep Safari – Jeep hooked it up with a translucent hard top roof panel, LED headlamps, a cargo rack with an incorporated drone, aluminum and vinyl windows, a 2-inch lift, and 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires.

Luminator

The Jeep Luminator is a testament to premium off-road lighting performance. It features magnetic underbelly rock lights, 7-inch LED projector headlamps, LED tail lamps, high-powered LED spot lights, LED auxiliary lighting, cornering fog lamps, and scanning light bar module to avoid wildlife or trails hazards.

Grand One

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Grand Cherokee, here’s a modern take on a classic, complete with 18-inch lace-style wheels, fender flares, an extended wheelbase, a 2-inch suspension lift and selectable locking differentials.

Quicksand

For those who can’t get enough sand, the Jeep Quicksand concept comes powered by a Mopar 392 Crate HEMI engine, a trimmed and chopped hot-rod body, chopped hard top, 32-inch BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires up front and 37-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires in the rear.

Trailpass

Based off of the new Jeep Compass, the Trailpass boasts a 1.5-inch lift kit, a custom hood graphic, tinted headlamps, a Mopar/Thule roof basket and rides atop 18-inch wheels wrapped within Continental TerrainContact all-terrain tires.

CJ66

As the mutt of the group, the CJ66 combines a Wrangler TJ frame, a 1966 Wrangler CJ Tuxedo Park body, elements of a Wrangler JK, and a Mopar 345 Crate HEMI engine into one mean off-road package.
