Designed for the most extreme situations and unforgiving conditions, the Jeep Rescue concept is not only the ultimate type of search and rescue vehicle, it is the ultimate execution of a Jeep off-road vehicle.

Combining legendary Jeep off-road capability with state-of-the-art search and rescue technology, the Jeep Rescue is designed to reach areas in the harshest, most daunting mountainous and desert areas.

Jeep Rescue is the supreme trail search and rescue vehicle, one that only Jeep - with more than 60 years of heritage behind it - could build,” said Trevor Creed, Senior Vice President of Design, Chrysler Group.

Classic Jeep Design Taken to an Extreme Dimension

Starting with a modern interpretation of the timeless, classic Jeep, the Rescue builds on the rugged Jeep heritage to forge an exciting new dimension for the Jeep brand. It is an example of absolute Jeep strength and “go anywhere” capability.

The Rescue can be configured to run almost totally “open,” with folding front windscreen and a retractable backlite, a sliding glass sunroof in front, a fold-forward canvas roof in the rear, plus, all four doors are removable.

A Rugged Foundation

Featuring all-new body-on-frame construction with hydroformed frame rails and riding on a 2,062 mm (81.2-in.) wide chassis with 3,106 mm (122.3-in.) wheelbase and 940 mm (37-in.) diameter tyres, the Jeep Rescue is built for anything thrown its way. The front hydropneumatic suspension combines with the heavy-duty link-coil rear suspension to give the Jeep Rescue its solid footing on all terrain. The suspension has adjustable ride height and an additional 102 mm (4-in.) lift available for fording water.

The large diameter tyres feature an MTR tread and run-flat capability, negating the need for a spare. On-board tyre pressure control has the ability to “tune” tyre pressures for maximum traction on all surfaces.

Powered by a Cummins Diesel engine with massive power and torque - 239 W (325 hp DIN) and 814 Nm (600 lb.-ft.) - and featuring seating for ive, the Jeep Rescue’s primary mission is rescue capability, and its list of rescue and safety equipment is impressive.

The Jeep Rescue is Jeep capability taken to maximum extreme and that, being Jeep, is unmatchable,” said Creed. “It is everything the Jeep brand represents - in a vehicle equipped for unequalled search and rescue service.

It looks so awesome on that! Moreover, it looks already great on that body paint. I just only hope that it still has an impressive and comfortable interior.

I want one! This vehicle could have a third row of seats for such a large vehicle! The little rav four is way smaller with the ability to carry 7! Better use of space would make this a winner!

I can’t find anyone who knows anything about the Jeep Rescue. Is it in production? If so, what dealership?
