2015 Moab Easter Jeep Safari concepts unveiled

2015 Moab Easter Jeep Safari concepts unveiled

  

You may
remember last week we mentioned the 2015 Moab Easter Jeep Safari and that Jeep
were planning to show some new concept vehicles. Well, the safari went ahead
and Jeep really did deliver those concepts.

Seven
concept vehicles were shown in all and they are all different. For those first
images, head over to
Road and Track. They have images of each of the
concepts and the initial reactions to them.

Jeep Chief

The
highlight of the show has to be the Jeep Chief. This retro styled Jeep could
have been transported straight from the 1970s and looks just like the Cherokees
of old. The Ocean Blue colour is amazing and mixed with this white looks modern
and retro at the same time.

Apparently
the sides are removable too. Under the hood is the obligatory Pentastar V6
which is the perfect motor for this concept.

Jeep Wrangler Red Rock
Responder

We also
liked the Jeep Wrangler Red Rock Responder. It's an off-road support vehicle in
bright red with black trim. The rear has been kitted out like a fire engine
come support truck with drawers and storage to carry everything it would need
to rescue vehicles in distress.

17 inch
wheels wearing 37 inch BF Goodrich off-road tires, uprated shocks, LED
lighting, cold air intake, hood vents, rock rails and front winch complete the
look.

Jeep Staff Car

The Jeep
Staff Car is another retro-inspired concept. This time from WWII and the
Willys  Jeep. It's an open vehicle with
canvas roof and no doors. First glance and you think it really is from the
1940s, but it's all new, all modern. It's a great concept.

It includes
the Pentastar V6, 2 inch lift kit, Fox shocks and the essential staff beer
cooler.

Jeep Wrangler Africa

The Jeep
Wrangler Africa is the automaker's concept challenge to the Land Rover
Defender. It's a long wheelbase, painted desert tan. It has front lights, roof
rack, high lift kit, 35 inch BF Goodrich off-road tires, rock rails, vented
hood and a high top roof.

This model
eschews the Pentastar for a 2.8-litre diesel engine.

Jeep Grand Cherokee
Overlander

The Jeep
Grand Cherokee Overlander isn't such a success to our eyes. Painted sage green
with yellow lights and a roof box that contains a two person tent. The vehicle
also has a front winch, tow hooks, skid plates, rock rails, off-road tires and
SRT lighting.

Under the
hood is a 3.0-litre V6 diesel and eight speed automatic transmission.

Jeep Cherokee Canyon Trail

The Jeep
Cherokee Canyon Trail is tan and black and has the usual skid plates, oil pan
and off road equipment. 17 inch steel wheels with off road tires. It also has a
leather interior with special embroidery.

Jeep Renegade Desert Hawk

The Jeep
Renegade Desert Hawk is the same as the Cherokee for us. It was good to include
it in the range, but isn't anywhere near as successful as the Wranglers. It is
also desert tan and comes with a JPP decal and hood decal. It also has Mopar
accessories, trailer hitch and roof rack.

Under the
hood is the 2.4-litre Tigershark engine with the new nine speed automatic
transmission.

We liked
the concepts and thought they brought a lot to the table. We also thought the
Wranglers were far superior to the Cherokee and Renegade. However, we would
like to see any and all of these models hit production. Would you? Tell us
below.
