Each year, Jeep enthusiasts take part in a week-long off-roading event held in Utah.
The manufacturer usually takes this opportunity to showcase new concept vehicles.
Five sketches have now been revealed ahead of the concepts’ launch.
As it has done for many years already, Jeep has begun teasing the concepts it will unveil at the Easter Jeep Safari next month.
Each spring for the past 57 years, off-roading enthusiasts have taken part in a week-long event called the Easter Jeep Safari and 2023 will be no exception.
This event, to be held from April 1st to 9th, will offer participants the opportunity to take part in day-long trail rides starting from Moab, Utah, an area favoured by off-roaders.
One of the main events of the Easter Jeep Safari is always the unveiling of the brand’s new concepts.
Indeed, Jeep usually develops a few concept vehicles especially for this event. This is why all of these models are focused on improving capabilities and off-road driving while usually featuring eye-catching designs and colours.
Since the start of the 2023 Safari is approaching quickly, Jeep has begun teasing this year’s concept vehicles which will be fully unveiled in about two weeks.
Instead of showing closeups of various parts or the outline of a new model as most automakers tend to do, Jeep decided to tease these concepts with artists’ sketches.
The first two images that were released last Friday show a bright green vehicle which appears to be a two-door version of the Gladiator pickup wearing very wide all-terrain tires and extended wheel arches, as well as a more conventional Wrangler 4xe Rubicon whose doors have been replaced by tubular half-doors.
The brand added three new images today which show other concepts including one based on the Wagoneer or Grand Wagoneer.
This sketch only shows part of the large SUV’s front end, making specific details hard to distinguish. That said, the front bumper seems to be modified with the presence of tow hooks or a winch, the wheel arches appear to have black plastic extensions, and a matte black graphic is applied to the center of the hood.
Another image shows a front-facing view of a highlighter-green Wrangler or Gladiator outfitted with a number of items from the Jeep Performance Parts catalogue from Mopar. The most apparent of these modifications include larger tires and a black bullbar.
Finally, the last sketch again shows a Wrangler 4xe Rubicon in an image that is saturated with pink and purple. This makes it difficult to determine the concept’s actual paint colour.
These last two images could be of the same vehicles as the first two, but since Jeep launched seven different concept’s at last year’s safari, it is likely to bring more than only three models at this event.
