Jeep is teasing a pair of concept vehicles for their annual Easter Jeep Safari.
Every year in the placid township of Auburn Hills, Michigan, just outside Detroit, Jeep enthusiasts from across the country all gather to celebrate their Jeep-ness. Nobody can quite describe what Jeep-ness truly is as you must possess a Jeep in order to understand it. The feeling goes beyond words. Some have described it as a sort of telepathic link that all Jeeps share.
Also every year, Jeep and Mopar both bring a collection of concept vehicles to show off the customization options of every Jeep. We’ve already seen quite a few Jeep concepts at last year’s SEMA, but Jeep is promising a brand new pair of concepts for this year’s Easter Jeep Safari.
The first image shows either a Wrangler or a Gladiator--it’s impossible to tell from this angle as the two share essentially the same front fascia. What we can tell for sure is that this concept will feature a hood-mounted spotlight, bead lock wheels, big all-terrain tires, and an LED light bar on the roof.
There’s also a J6 badge clearly visible just ahead of the removable door. As Autoblog points out, this could either be a callback to the J-series of pickups, which were a Jeep-branded series of pickups built from 1962 to 1988, or the CJ-6, a variant of the dauntless Jeep CJ with an extra long wheelbase.
The second image is most certainly a new 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Its color scheme seems to indicate a certain level of funkiness that has so far been absent in the Gladiator. Also of note is the chase rack, bed rail storage system, and larger off-road tires. Besides that, we don’t know what else the Gladiator will offer besides some outrageous vibes.
Jeep’s Easter Safari takes place from April 13th to the 21st, so we’ll find out more closer to the date.
