It’s that time of year again. The time of year where Jeep begins hinting at its Moab Easter Safari special editions ready for the show. It’s a great time to be a Jeep fan. You get to see a number of custom options from the wild and wacky to the sane and sensible and all of them would be possible with the right help.
Moab Easter Safari
The Moab Easter Safari is an annual event held by Jeep in Moab in the US. It’s exceptionally popular with off roaders and is held April 13 through 21. You get to explore some seriously challenging trails while admiring some amazing surroundings and testing the capabilities of your Jeep. If you struggle to challenge your Jeep at home, this place will show you what it’s really capable of!
The event is run by Red Rock 4-Wheelers and registration for the event is already open. Due to the popularity of the event itself and the opportunity to see Jeep Moab Easter Safari special editions, it usually sells out very quickly indeed. I will try to cover the event and get some pics if I can.
2019 Jeep Wrangler
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler is unbeatable off road and isn’t so bad on it either. It’s an iconic vehicle with lots of history and tradition but also a firm eye on the future. The new model looks forward with new designs, new features and technology but also honours its heritage too.
The design is part of that heritage. It has the signature grille, lights and fenders yet each have been slightly updated to reflect modern times. The interior has gotten the same treatment. It is still the rugged, no-nonsense interior it has always been but with more technology, practicality and comfort.
The standard 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 is still present and correct and still produces 285 hp. It uses either a six speed manual or eight speed automatic transmission to send power to all four wheels. There is also a turbocharged four cylinder available with 270 hp that utilizes a mild-hybrid system to save gas. The system works well and delivers the power and torque you need when on the rough stuff.
Jeep is also known for offering tons of options and parts and the 2019 Jeep Wrangler is no different. You can spec it as your daily driver with mild manners or a full-on off roader with high lift, off road tires, limited slip differential, skid plates and all that good stuff. It is very easy to overspend on one of these but in the end, you get a fantastic vehicle that can literally go anywhere.
