The annual Easter Jeep Safari is at it again, revealing six new concept vehicles developed by Jeep and Mopar. The 48th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari will be held on April 12 to 30 in Moab, Utah. Jeep and Mopar teamed up to create these serious off roaders using production and prototype Jeep Performance Parts.
Here’s what you need to know
Jeep Wrangler Level Red: With a two-inch lift kit, Dana 44 crate axles, Rock-Trac transfer case, and a 3.6-litre engine with six-speed manual it has everything you need to tackle the most challenging off road tracks. With an attractive pitch black exterior and a red graphic stripe, how could you go wrong?
Jeep Wrangler MOJO: Featuring similar off road gear to the Level Red, the main difference in the Mojo is its 59:1 crawl ration, compared to the Level Red’s 73:1. You’ll stand out in the crowd with this one featuring a bright orange exterior, which is exactly what the “OJ” stands – Orange Jeep. Prototype LED headlamps and fog lamps, and soft top – this Jeep is all about giving you freedom on the road.
Jeep Wrangler Maximum Performance: For those seeking a bit more of a thrill, this blue Jeep will steal your affection. It’s Jeep Performance Parts-exclusive push-button electric-looking Dana 60 axles are matched with 4.88 gearing and 4:1 Rock-Trac transfer case. Highly protected, it will battle any hurdle you throw it at.
Jeep Cherokee Adventurer: The ten exterior of this car makes it a little less understated than its prototype sisters, but don’t underestimate the Adventurer which boasts Trailhawk 4×4 capabilities. 48:1 crawl ratio, utility and cargo convenience; this is the explorer’s dream. Rock rails, skid plates to the underbody, front suspension, oil tank and fuel tank, it’s well protected.
Jeep Cherokee Dakar: In one word, this vehicle is extreme. Its silver steel satin gloss exterior with flame red graphics will be love at first sight. Trailhawk 17-inch polished sating clear coat wheels feature two large red pockets, teamed with the seven-slot grille, prototype lower fascia trim, and 33-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tyres. With extra approach and departure angles, you can’t go wrong.
Jeep Cherokee EcoDiesel Trail Warrior: The ultimate diesel Jeep, this SUV features a range of performance parts and accessories. A Quadra-Lift air suspension, roof basket for extra storage, 20-inch cast aluminium wheels on All-Terrain BFGoodrich tyres match the sand exterior dress with satin black flourishes throughout.
