With the 2014 Moab Easter Jeep Safari set to commence this weekend, Jeep-based models. Another two vehicles were conceived using the brand new Cherokee as a starting point. that left us with only one 2014 Grand Cherokee showing up in Utah: the EcoDiesel Trail Warrior.

As the name suggests, this specific Grand Cherokee concept is set to hit the trails with a 3.0-liter V6 turbo-diesel mill under the hood. Shared with the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel , the powerplant delivers 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of trail-blazing torque.

However, the Trail Warrior isn’t a regular diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee. The SUV benefits from a Quadra-Lift air suspension, prototype wheels wrapped in all-terrain, BF Goodrich tires and it has a 44:1 crawl ratio. Additionally an array of unique Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts accessories will make it stand out from the crowd.

The all-popular Jeep Wrangler is once again taking the trails of the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah in the shape of three, off-road-prepped, concept vehicles . The Wrangler Maximum Performance is the most extreme of the pack, boasting hardcore climbing capabilities and a 70:1 crawl ratio.

Enabling the Wrangler Maximum Performance to tackle even the roughest of terrains are a prototype Jeep Performance Parts four-inch lift kit and push-button, electric-locking Dana 60 axles at the front and rear. Also, a 4:1 Rock-Trac transfer case and 4.88 gearing are ready to help this unique Wrangler take on Moab’s most difficult trails.

Of course, the aforementioned upgrades would be completely useless without a proper set of rollers, so it was only natural for Jeep to go with newly design beadlock wheels wrapped in 37-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires. A similar spare tire is wrapped in a Jeep Performance Parts cover and fitted around the back.

With the 2014 Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, scheduled for April 12th through 20th, Jeep and Mopar have announced plans to introduce a new batch of unique Wrangler -based concept SUVs .

Six off-road -capable vehicles will be shown in Utah next week, according to Jeep and Mopar — the two brands that have joined forces one more time — but the details are still in the vault, with only a couple of teasers up for grabs.

As you might have already seen earlier, the first one depicts the Cherokee-based Dakar concept , which comes equipped with all the necessary off-road gear and red window trim. The second one gives us a first glimpse at the Wrangler MOJO concept , which appears to be based on the two-door version of the popular crossover .

It features a custom bright orange exterior with black stripes and blacked-out front grille, and a winch bumper ready to get it out of any nasty scenario that may occur. As expected, the vehicle rides on bead-lock wheels wrapped in off-road tires, while a proper suspension system is hidden underneath the square fenders.

Considering the fact that Jeep brought five Wrangler concepts to the Easter Safari last year, the MOJO won’t be the only incarnation of the SUV to be paraded at this year’s event. We’ll be right back as soon as Jeep rolls them into the spotlight, so make sure you tune in next week.

As spring kicks in each year, Jeep and Mopar are gearing up for the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, by creating some of the greatest off-roaders which, unfortunately, we can’t buy.

Last year, for instance, the Chrysler -owned brands have come up with the extreme Wrangler Sand Trooper II perched on 40-inch bead-lock wheels, the lightweight Wrangler Stitch , and the production-friendly Grand Cherokee Trailhawk II Concept .

For 2014, Jeep and Mopar are storming Utah highly-anticipated event with another half-dozen of unique climbing-capable machines. Among them, visitors will be able to get up close and personal with a more extreme take on the redesigned 2014 Jeep Cherokee.

Dubbed Cherokee Dakar, the crossover concept pays tribute to the grueling African (err, South American) safari rally with its off-road-spec suspension, massive sand-digging tires and flared wheel arches. From the teaser, it appears that the dark-grey body is complemented by a red window trim, while the two-tone rims benefit from the same contrasting hues. Additionally, the concept will get to keep the Cherokee’s standard red tow hooks.

There are no clues as to what might be hiding under the hood, but we’re not hoping for more than a 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6. Not that we wouldn’t love to see a Hemi V-8 in there, but the Cherokee’s bay is not roomy enough for a 6.4-liter mill

Jeep’s long and storied history of building rugged, go-anywhere SUVs might be getting a little more diverse – at least in the view of BoldRide and Hansen Art. The pair joined forces to compile what they believe might be the rumored Jeep slotted below the already tiny Renegade .

The premise: an all-wheel-drive hatchback with a powerful engine capable of sweeping the floor with an STI , Focus ST , or Evo at any given rally race. It’s an interesting idea, but the likelihood is actually there. Fiat does have the Punto it could re-clothe in Jeep apparel. Perhaps the 2.0-liter Tigershark with a little turbo magic aboard to give it some extra oomph — say around 280 horsepower. BoldRide went one step further, entertaining the idea of a diesel powertrain. It’s surely an interesting thought.

With the youthful aesthetics, large wheels, and generally attractive stance, the baby Jeep (Rally Jeep?) might catch on with the GTI , Focus ST, and WRX crowd. Competition is always a good thing in this business.

Where the Rally Jeep will hit snags is with the current Jeep faithful. There have already been stern words said about the Renegade and its ‘cute’ appearance. Perhaps a Jeep Jeep hot hatch would haul too much heresy for Fiat Fiat -Chrysler to move forward. Either way, it’s an intriguing concept and a spectacular rendering that should easily garner polarizing opinions.

Don’t be afraid to share yours below.

Ever since Jeep unveiled the new 2015 Renegade at the Geneva Motor Show , the world has gobbled up every bit of information about the new crossover . Small, practical, useful, fun, and sporty — Chrysler’s newest Jeep has all the same Jeep ingredients we’re used to, but has packaged it in a very unique way.

Besides being a unique vehicle in the Jeep lineup, the Renegade is also set to be one of Jeep’s most popular. Built in Italy in cohorts with Fiat , the Renegade will be sold globally. Its small size, fuel-efficient lineup of engines, and four-wheel-drive systems will help it conquer the competition.

We’ve already told you about the all-new Renegade here , but now we’re bringing you a condensed version – a top 10 list of notable features Chrysler hopes will put the Renegade on top.

Fiat -Chrysler has unveiled its latest offspring at the Geneva Motor Show , the all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade. The little Jeep represents the brand’s first foray into the small crossover market, but its global market reach will be anything but small. Fiat-Chrysler is will sell the Jeep in over 100 markets worldwide while targeting youthful, thrill-seeking customers.

That global reach hasn’t stopped the Jeep from showing its rugged roots though. Two four-wheel-drive systems, decent ground clearance, a removable top, a manual transmission option and loads of cargo room are all part of the Renegade’s tactical plan for world domination. And with its lineage tracing back to the Willys MB Jeep that helped win WWII, we’re not quick to discount the plan, despite the Renegade’s less than macho exterior appeal.

The Renegade will offer an unprecedented 16 powertrain combinations with 6 engine options in total, though the U.S. is only getting a small number of them, with both being familiar from other Fiat-Chrysler products. The 1.4-liter turbo I-4 from the Fiat 500L serves as the base engine, while the 2.4-liter Tigershark I-4 from the Dodge Dart and Chrysler 200 fills the top-tier slot. A six-speed manual transmission will come attached to the 1.4-liter while the 2.4-liter gets a nine-speed automatic unit. Front-wheel-drive will come standard with four-wheel-drive being an option.

With its attractive cuteness, clever interior packaging options, and impressive list of amenities, it’s easy to imagine the Renegade catching on worldwide. The question remains, however, is it worthy of the Jeep name and Trail Rated badge? Click past the jump to find out.

The upcoming Baby Jeep was caught testing for the first time back in October 2013, and it looked identical to its Fiat cousin. Since then, the small Jeep has evolved a bit, as the prototype that our spy photographers caught today looks more like a typical Jeep .

Also known as the Jeepster, the future baby Jeep will be built on the same Small Wide platform that will see use under the Fiat 500 L and 500 MPW. Jeep is planning to use this model as a competitor to the Nissan Juke and Peugeot 2008 .

We have no details on the engine lineup just yet, but depending on the market, the next baby Jeep will be offered with gasoline and diesel engines. We expect the new Jeep to come standard with front-wheel drive and have all-wheel drive as an available option.

Expect the new Baby Jeep to be unveiled later this March, most likely at the Geneva Motor Show. The model will be built in Italy along with the Fiat500X .
