2018 Jeep Moab Easter Safari Concepts

Mar 20, 2018

Category: Rides

Every Easter season for the past 52 years, Jeep has debuted several concept off-road vehicles for their annual Easter Jeep Safari. This year, the series lasts from March 24-April 1 and is now attended by thousands of enthusiastic fans enjoying some of the finest off-roading on our nation’s most dynamic and challenging courses in Moab, Utah.

This year is no slouch either, complete with a series of seven concept Jeeps that are bound to perform well in the event’s gauntlet of runs. Jeep again utilized a series of Mopar performance parts in this year’s collection – an initiative that not only meets but exceeds the expectations from previous years. On the docket for 2018? A concept Wagoneer and something called the Jeepster among several others. More details can be found below.

4SPEED

Positioned to bolster lightweight off-road performance, the 4SPEED is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine. It’s also wrapped in plenty of carbon fiber to keep things as light as possible.

Sandstorm

With an obvious allusion to desert trekking, this beastly ride comes equipped with a powerful 6.4-liter V8 from Mopar, 36.6-inch tires and 17-inch beadlock wheels among various other backcountry enhancements.

B-Ute

Alluding to the Jeep Liberty, the B-Ute (get-it?) boasts a 1.5-inch lift kit, roof rack, rock rails, 17-inch wheels, and a set of BG Goodrich T/A Baja Champion tires. She’s also powered by a 2.4-liter Tigershark engine for good measure.

Wagoneer Roadtrip

Possibly our favorite of the bunch, the Roadtrip now boasts a 5.7-liter Hemi under the hood, and rides atop a set of 17-inch steel wheels wrapped in 33-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires.

Nacho Jeep

Named after it’s nacho yellow paint job, this aggressive iteration features a two-inch lift kit, a set of rock guards, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood and a Warn Winch kit.

J-Wagon

Based on the Jeep Wrangler Sahara, the J-Wagon appears to be the most city-friendly concept of the bunch. It features a snorkel for fording rivers, extra cabin seating, a black Mopar grille, and 17-inch wheels.

Jeepster

What’s old is new again. Now, Jeep looks to bring back the 1966 Jeepster – built atop a Rubicon – now with a Firecracker Red body, a two-inch lift kit, interior roll cage, and 37-inch BF Goodrich KO2 tires wrapped around 17-inch wheels.
