The ultimate premium off-roader?

Unveiled in 2017 and put in production in November, the latest-generation Jeep Wrangler is almost six months old. But, while customers were flooding Jeep showrooms to place an order for the JL, the previous-generation Wrangler remained in production until March 2018, for a life-cycle that amounts to almost 12 years, a record for the nameplate. With the JK now officially in the history books, the fourth-generation Wrangler is taking center stage at the 2018 Moab Easter Safari, where Jeep brought various concept vehicles based on the SUV. One of them is the J-Wagon, a premium-styled model that’s as capable on the unbeaten path as it is at home in the urban cityscapes.

Based on the Wrangler Sahara, the J-Wagon was personalized with Jeep Performance Parts and a couple of Mopar features. It’s a closed-roof four-door, which explains the "wagon" in the name, but it’s also equipped for proper off-roading thanks to larger wheels and tires and bespoke rock sliders. While many of the parts are still in concept phase, they will most likely become available to purchase later this year, so the J-Wagon is a good example of how you can customize your next Wrangler.

The first thing that catches the eye when looking at this concept SUV is the off-road-ready stance

The first thing that catches the eye when looking at this concept SUV is the off-road-ready stance. The main features guilty of this look are the big rims wrapped in 33-inch BF Goodrich tires. Then there’s the snorkel and the five-inch LED lights that offer military-grade illumination. Upgrades over the stock model continue with a custom engine hood that features a special cutout kit to work with the snorkel. The hood also has a Brass Monkey colored latch and a black "Willys" logo.

The front grille is also a retrofit element, being sourced from the Wrangler Rubicon model. Below, we can see Orange Crush tow hooks and Brass Monkey foglamps bezels. The wheels are also finished in this special color which was first showcased at the 2017 SEMA Show. Other upgrades include black concept rock sliders for additional body protection and a black roof rack for enhanced utility. The body is wrapped in a conceptual Warm Neutral Grey paint, while the hue of the tinted glass matches the finish.

The interior is all about premium upgrades, starting with Camel-colored Katzkin leather seats with Stark Brown piping. The plow-through inserts mimic the triangulated grille design of the concept rock rails. Brass Monkey trim and bezel accents on the HVAC vents, door handles, and steering wheel round out the bespoke interior.

No word on what’s under the hood, so it’s safe to assume that the J-Wagon uses a standard drivetrain. Which isn’t bad since all engines are more than capable for off-roading.

Press release

The Jeep J-Wagon concept is personalized with Jeep Performance Parts to create a premium-styled vehicle equally at home on the trails and urban cityscapes.

Starting as a Wrangler Sahara, the J-Wagon is painted a conceptual Warm Neutral Grey with warm-tinted glass, and complemented with subtle Brass Monkey touches throughout the exterior. The J-Wagon features a version of the JPP hood designed with a cutout kit to work with the available snorkel, an appropriate choice for the sealed-cabin style of the vehicle. The hood latch is Brass Monkey and further embellished with a black Willys logo.

For hardcore off-roaders, new 5-inch LED lights mount with JPP brackets to deliver commercial and military grade illumination. That trail detail is balanced with the street-appeal of a Mopar black grille pulled from a Wrangler Rubicon, and features body-color matching bezel trim. The premium Sahara bumper aligns with the vehicle’s color pattern via Brass Monkey fog lamp bezels. The J-Wagon concept also features 17-inch slot-design wheels that are also finished in Brass Monkey, a treatment chosen after receiving positive feedback in a sneak peek at the 2017 SEMA Show.

Black metal concept rock sliders guard the J-Wagon’s exterior, and a matching black metal concept JPP roof rack offers utility and functionality to fit any lifestyle. A black JPP fuel door and Orange Crush accents on the Jeep badge and tow hooks add style points. A spare 35-inch KM3 BF Goodrich tire mounts to the spare tire tailgate hinge reinforcement, and includes the JPP Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) light relocation kit.

Premium appointments are the story inside. Camel-color Katzkin leather seats give an elite feel and feature stark brown piping and plow-through inserts that mimic the triangulated grille design of the concept rock rails. Eye-level Brass Monkey trim and bezel accents on the HVAC vents, door handles and steering wheel harmonize the interior with the exterior.
