Jeep Shows Off Its New Long-Range EcoDiesel V6 In A One-Off Overlander

Each year for its annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari, the American manufacturer treats attendees to one or more concept vehicles, and though the marque canceled its plans for the yearly meetup at Utah’s Overlanding Mecca, it’s nonetheless showing off a new bespoke vehicle that it prepared for the event with what’s fittingly been christened the “Gladiator Farout Concept”.

Based on the firm’s already incredibly-competent Rubicon-spec Gladiator, the Farout has been equipped with a slew of off-road upgrades such as a Jeep Performance Parts lift kit, FOX performance shocks, 17” matte charcoal rims wrapped in 37” mud-terrain tires, a modified Gladiator Rubicon steel bumper outfitted with a 12,000lb Warn winch, custom front and rear rock rails, and an integrated roof-rack system that opens into a massive 16′ long by 7.5′ tall mobile living space. Adorned in an “Earl” livery complemented via chartreuse accents, the rugged concept’s purpose is to showcase Jeep’s forthcoming 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine, which offers increased autonomy at up to 28mpg, hence the concept’s name. Generating 260hp and 442ft-lbs of torque, the potent yet fuel-efficient V6 debuts on the 2021 Sport, Overland, and Rubicon-spec Gladiators. Scheduled for a release in Q3 of 2020, custom orders of the 2021 Jeep Gladiator EcoDiesel are available now.
