2021 Easter Jeep Safari Concepts
Well, it’s that time of the year again. For us off-road enthusiasts, this is nothing short of Christmas. Moab is going to be lit again starting 27 March 2021, courtesy of several concepts that Jeep has planned to bring this year. After pulling out of the 2020 Easter Jeep Safari because of the pandemic, the automaker has returned to the 2021 edition with seven different vehicles comprising of Wrangler and Gladiators. The pick of the lot, however, would be the first fully-electric Wrangler. Will this event make enough impact for people to forget about the Bronco for some time?
Jeep All Set To Debut The Wrangler EV Concept Next Month
Until a few years back, there was an unsaid notion that hatches and sedans would be electrified first (the urban commuters) and off-roaders would evolve at the end. But, that is definitely not the scene right now. Back in September 2020, Jeep introduced the Wrangler 4xe, a plug-in hybrid version of the standard Wrangler. Now the automaker has confirmed the concept electric version of the Wrangler on its “Road Ahead” site and it will be presented at the Easter Jeep Safari that’s scheduled to start on March 28, 2021.
2020 Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept by Mopar
The SEMA Show is turning out to be quite exciting. Jeep is taking part, obviously, and has come with a concept targeted at hard-core mountain bike enthusiasts. The automaker, along with Mopar, has transformed the 2020 Gladiator pickup truck into a fun concept vehicle for serious mountain bikers. But, what’s catchier about this concept is the number of storage spaces in the customized truck bed. Oh, and also, there’s a built-in hot dog machine. How about that!
2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Concept
The 2020 Jeep Grand Wagoneer is a production-ready concept vehicle that previews the arrival of the modern Jeep Wagoneer. Set to arrive in 2021, the SUV will revive the Wagoneer name after 30 years. Described as a "premium extension" of the Jeep brand, the SUV will become available in two versions, the Wagoneer and the Grand Wagoneer, with the latter to offer more space and more luxury.
The Grand Wagoneer concept looks ready to go into production, but Jeep will probably drop a few fancy features before it puts the SUV on the assembly line. Let’s have a closer look at the three-row hauler in the review below.
This Jeep Wagoneer Woody Will Give You the Feels of the 1980s All Over Again
The Grand Wagoneer Concept looks every bit like the production model that we can expect to see in dealership showrooms in 2022. But 2022 is still a ways away, and as we wait for the production-spec Grand Wagoneer to arrive, we can spend that time admiring all the renderings that have already been released, a lot of which show the hulking SUV in different forms and functions.
One rendering, in particular, caught our attention, not because of who created it — Abimelec Design — but because of what he created. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Jeep Grand Wagoneer Woody, a creation so nostalgic you can smell the air of the 1980s from your computer screens.
Eight cool Jeep Grand Wagoneer concept features that won’t make it on the production model
After years of rumors and speculation, Jeep finally revived the iconic Wagoneer though the Grand Wagoneer concept. The production model won’t arrive until 2021, but this so-called concept vehicle doesn’t seem very different from what we will get in showrooms. However, it showcases a range of cool and fancy features that most likely won’t make in on the production model, despite its luxury-oriented status. Here’s a list of items you should expect to find on the upcoming, factory-built Wagoneer.
Jeep Unveils The Grand Wagoneer Concept With Bold Exterior and a Technology-Rich Cabin
After a number of teasers and glimpses of the SUV, the Jeep Wagoneer is finally here. The company has unveiled the concept Jeep Wagoneer digitally. The SUV was in production for three decades, between 1961 to 1981, it was then sent to an exile only to be brought back again for a second run.
Test mules were spotted in 2019 and the automaker confirmed that the nameplate is being reincarnated for the same role it played in the last century. Yesteryear monikers generally receive a lot more attention than new names but also have a lot of hopes pinned on them.
Given how competitive the SUV segment has become in the recent past, can the Wagoneer stand out, or will it become just another name that didn’t bring in volumes for the automaker?
Jeep Unveils Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept Just So It Can Ruin Ford’s Party Tonight
We’re less than 10 hours away from the much-anticipated 2021 Ford Bronco’s unveiling, and its primary rival, the Jeep Wrangler, has decided to gatecrash the party. The company teased a 6.4-liter, V-8 HEMI engine just a couple of days ago in a Facebook post and now it has confirmed its arrival in the form of the Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept.
Ford has been messing around with the Jeep ever since the Bronco was announced, so the news of the Wrangler Rubicon 392 Concept couldn’t have come at a better time. Kudos to Jeep for sneaking under the limelight and stealing it from the Bronco just hours before the grand reveal. Point: Jeep.
2019 Jeep Gladiator JT Scrambler Concept
based concept to mark its presence at the 2019 Easter Jeep Safari, the Jeep JT Scrambler concept is quite similar to the J6 - a throwback to the Jeep’s history. But this time, it’s not just about the colors, but also the graphics. The graphics and color combination strongly resonates with the CJ8 Scrambler from the ’80s. Just like all the other concepts present at this year’s Easter Jeep Safari, this one too is a showpiece to exhibit the Mopar performance parts. Actually, not just the performance parts, but also the bright, orange stickers around the body which are the highlight of this truck.
2019 Jeep Gladiator Gravity Concept
The Jeep Gladiator Gravity Concept is perhaps the smartest looking truck of the lot that was presented at the 2019 Easter Jeep Safari. We are not sure if it was the design team that worked on this concept or the marketing team, but knowing that Jeep uses this event to create, innovate, and display new Mopar products, we have to say that this truck will bring in maximum revenue for Jeep. The Gravity concept is basically a table, shaped like a truck, that showcases a plethora of Mopar performance products. This Jeep shows how you can elevate the abilities and capabilities of your Jeep by installing the products from Jeep’s performance brand. On the onset, the car looks absolutely fantastic in the orange shade while maintaining its rugged looks. Just like four other concept trucks, Jeep has based this one on the Gladiator, too. The automaker has made sure that the company’s new pickup truck receives maximum exposure from this event. But, we cannot fathom the fact that not a single concept is based on the Wrangler!
2019 Jeep Gladiator M-715 Five-Quarter
This Jeep is only concept of the lot from this year’s Easter Jeep Safari that is not a 2020 Gladiator dressed in pretty clothes. Moniker’d the ’Five-Quarter,’ this concept truck is actually a resto-mod of the 1968 Kaiser Jeep M-715, Gladiator-based, military vehicle. This concept will surely draw a lot of attention from the die-hard fans and enthusiasts who have followed Jeep with loyalty. Let me stress on this again - this is a resto-mod operation, not a replica. This is the real deal. So, of the 30,000-odd vehicles that were built, and God knows how many have survived to this day, Jeep and Mopar have actually stripped apart a 50-year old truck and garnished it with loads with new parts!
Fun fact - Jeep actually picked this model up off of Craigslist before putting it through the wringer. If this doesn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what will.
2019 Jeep Gladiator J6 Concept
The Easter Jeep Safari, held at Moab, Utah, is a Mecca for Jeep lovers. Jeep uses these 10-odd days to showcase its concepts that not only bring out the creative side of the designers but also serves as a perfect platform to further market the lineup of highly sought-after Mopar products. One of the six concepts, the J6, is the product that serves this purpose completely. It is filled with Mopar products in and out and will undoubtedly intrigue the interest of the Safari attendees.
The J6 Concept is out there to en’lighten’ the event in all its glory. Didn’t get the reference? Well, that’s because Jeep has added a lot of LED lighting shenanigans to this truck. What makes it all the more interesting is that it has a two-door cab with a six-foot-long bed. A lot of enthusiasts have been vocal about having this same combination for quite some time now. Jeep understands this and will use this Safari as a pedestal to see if it makes a viable business case for itself.
2019 Jeep Gladiator Flatbill Concept
Jeep has crowded the 53rd Easter Jeep Safari with six of its concepts. Knowing how competitive the market has gotten in this age, Jeep decided to make use of this much-anticipated event by basing five of its six concepts on the new Gladiator, you know, for maximum exposure. Jeep has also paid tribute to the 1968 M-715 for the sake of nostalgia. Jeep has invested all of its time and finances allotted for this Safari on the Gladiator-based concepts, and here is one that revolves around the theme of motocross lifestyle - Dirt bikes and bro codes. Moniker’d the Flatbill concept, this truck has been designed while keeping the desert lifestyle in mind.
It certainly looks like Jeep had a lot of fun building this concept. In fact, Jeep seems to have gone all ’bruh’ with the Flatbill concept. How often do you see an automaker relate so close to reality? It’s not just about the vernacular here; Jeep has managed to induce the ’bro-ness’ into the Jeep with styling and design philosophy. The bright color combination and the loud styling cues make this one of the funkiest concepts of the 2019 Safari lot. Oh, and did we forget to tell you that the term ’Flatbill’ is derived from the popular style of baseball hats that the Jeep folks like to wear. No, we are not making this up, bro.
2019 Jeep Gladiator Wayout Concept
It’s back! The 53rd Annual Easter Week celebration for Jeep enthusiasts is here, and we are chuffed to bits, just like every year. This year, Jeep will bring in not one, not two, but six different concepts. Five of these concepts are based on the newGladiator, while one is essentially a tribute to the 1968 M-715 military version of the old-school civilian Gladiator. Jeep has worked with Mopar to create these concepts, and each one is a work of art in its own way. However, what caught our attention is that not a single one has the Wrangler badge this time! Easter Jeep Safari without Wrangler is like Thanksgiving dinner without Turkey! Guess Jeep is too excited commemorating the Gladiator pickup instead. For the 2019 Safari, the most practical concept that could make it to production, and still dominate the market, is the Wayout concept. From Jeep’s point-of-view, this concept is a way to re-instill the spark in enthusiast’s mind that no matter which automaker comes up with fancy shenanigans, a Jeep will still be a Jeep. We are referring to the Ford Ranger, and it’s exhaustive list of camping gear. The Wayout is the ultimate overlanding vehicle that would make for the perfect #wanderlust pictures for your Instagram.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Nacho Concept
Almost a year after debuting at the Easter Jeep Moab Safari, the Jeep Wrangler Nacho Concept made its way east to the 2019 Chicago Auto Show where it once again flexed its muscle for all the world to see. Based on a 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, the Wrangler Nacho Concept is what happens when a customer goes balls-to-the-wall with Jeep and Mopar’s encyclopedia-like parts catalogs. Everything from aesthetic upgrades to important equipment is represented in the Nacho Concept. The objective, at least according to Jeep, is to showcase a blueprint for off-roaders to follow, particularly those who are looking to create their own custom trail vehicle. The Jeep Wrangler Nacho Concept is unlikely to hit production, but that shouldn’t stop customers from recreating it on their own or go all-out in creating something that makes the Nacho Jeep look tame by comparison. Could there be a Jeep Wrangler Guacamole in our future?
2019 Jeep Gladiator By Katzkin Leather
After more than 30 years on the shelves, the almighty Jeep Gladiator returned to the auto scene at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Less than a few months later, we now have one of the first custom jobs for the Gladiator courtesy of a company known for making some of the best leather products for car interiors in the market. This, ladies and gentlemen, is Katzkin Leather’s interpretation of the Jeep Gladiator, and it’s an absolute doozy. Comprised mostly of upgrades to the truck’s interior, Katzkin Leather’s work on the Gladiator’s cabin is a visual showcase of the company’s new products. The upholstery package is one of the many options that Katzkin is offering through Mopar, complementing the menu of accessories and options that are already available for Jeep’s returning conqueror. Katzkin’s show of force on the Gladiator was on full display at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.

It ain’t easy to break into the world of automotive design, but three talented high schoolers are well on their way to landing their dream jobs, as recognized by FCA in a recent contest to pen the 2030 model year Jeep Wrangler.
