The all-new 2017 Jeep Compass isn’t exactly a hard-core off-roader. That said, the crossover Compass, at least in Trailhawk form, is a Trail Rated Jeep that can tackle some beginning to moderate trails – and that’s a lot more than pretty much any other crossover on the market can say.
Johnny Cash’s car in “One Piece at a Time” is built from parts he snuck out of a Cadillac plant. The Jeep CJ66 has a somewhat similar story, as it is constructed of a combination of different CJ and Wrangler pieces, and just like the Man in Black’s ride this Wrangler is definitely one of a kind.
The JK Wrangler has had a solid run, but with the JL coming down the pipe next year that run is just about over. The Jeep crew is sending the JK out in style at this year’s Easter Jeep Safari, and one of the coolest concepts at the 51st running of the event is the Jeep Safari concept.
The 51st annual Easter Jeep Safari is right around the corner, and the Jeep and Mopar brands have partnered again to create some unique concept vehicles for this year’s event. Today, we get our first look at two of the vehicles.
Jeep unleashed its concept vehicles today – two of which were teased recently – for the Easter Jeep Safari occurring later this month in the off-road wonderland of Moab, Utah. The Jeep vehicles are outfitted with Mopar performance parts to build unique, one-of-a-kind vehicles that aren’t just showroom stunners – these will actually hit the trails. This year’s Easter Jeep Safari (EJS) is the 50th running of the event, which just so happens to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Jeep brand.
Head of Jeep Brand for FCA Global Mike Manely mentioned the importance of EJS and the fact that the company loves to interact with enthusiasts at the event with its unique concept vehicles.
For this year’s 50th Moab Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep and Mopar have teamed up again to build unique concept vehicles for the event. This year’s Easter Jeep Safari will be taking place in Moab, Utah, later this month from March 19-27.
If you want to get your hands on the new Wrangler Red Rock Concept vehicle, you get better do so quickly. Along with a new Ram Rebel X truck concept, FCA yesterday unveiled a new concept Jeep Wrangler that pays homage to one of the coolest off-road locations in the world – and there will only be 50 of the Wranglers made!
Jeep has a fiercely loyal following, and nowhere is this more apparent than at Easter Jeep Safari week in Moab, Utah. Packing the streets, the trails, the hotel parking lots and everywhere in between during the week of EJS are CJ-5s, 7s, TJ and YJ Wranglers, four-four JK Unlimiteds fitted with 32-inch tires up to 40s, and you’ll even see the occasional Comanche, Willys or Grand Wagoneer around town.
It’s just a peek, but today Jeep released a first glimpse at the concept vehicles it will bring out to the 49th Annual Easter Jeep Safari. The annual gathering of Jeepers will take place at the end of March in Moab, Utah. Jeep will bring out seven different new concept vehicles for this year’s event, all of which will feature Jeep Performance Parts from Mopar.
