Jeep has focused on introducing 10 concepts to display at this year’s Easter event. Five of these concepts come directly from the automaker. Whereas, three are from the 2021 SEMA show and two are from the Jeep Performance parts accessory division. 2022 Easter Jeep safari debuts seven of these concepts, starting from April 9th, till April 17th. Down below are the 2022 Easter Jeep Safari debutants.
1. Jeep Rubicon 20th Anniversary Concept
When the Rubicon was introduced into the market, it was considered a gamble. The model is now a significant chunk of Wrangler’s production. This Jeep Rubicon 20th anniversary concept has been drawn from the Rubicon 392 and the V8.
The concept will have a 6.4-litre V8 engine. It will have a 2.0-inch JPP lift, 17-inch Beadlock capable wheels which are wrapped in 37-inch off-road tires and a two-mode exhaust system. Other features include a special one-off half doors, and the Sky one-touch power-retractable roof and a Warn winch are also premium additions.
2. Jeep Wrangler Magneto 2.0 Concept
The Jeep Wrangler Magneto 2.0 concept is the most liked concept. The wrangler was based on the Magneto EV’s concept, with a good amount of all-electric power. This concept can generate a power of 625 bhp and 850 pound-feet of torque. It consists of four lithium-ion batteries scattered around the engine, in order to produce a capacity of 70kW/h.
Jeep confidently claims that this concept can hit 60mph in a matter of just 2 seconds. The Magneto will have a 3.0-inch lift and 20-inch wheels with 40-inch tires and a new longer wheelbase. The model has very minimalistic front and rear bumpers as well as a carbon hood. This hood gives the concept a different look from the front.
3. Jeep Bob Concept
The name of this concept was derived from the act of ‘bobbing’. The Bob concept includes an Eco diesel-powered engine. The model does not have any doors or B-pillars. Although, the model has a perforated hardtop with an orange canvas stretched right across tightly. Other features of this model include bypass shocks, and 40-inch mud tires with wheels half its size. This small truck is very different and is a favourite.
4. Jeep ’41 Concept
The Jeep has modified the Wrangler 4xe plug-in hybrid and has given it armed services treatment. The concept of the Jeep ‘41 is a 4×4 model with a 2.0 inch Jeep Performance Parts lift. The model also has 35-inch off-roading tires, a warn winch on a steel bumper as well as half doors. The inside of the model contains a canvas seat upholstery with digital camouflage inserts and a custom retro look shifter. This concept and package seem the most producible if Stellantis agrees to the same.
5. Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk PHEV Concept
Most of the other concepts are very Wrangler like in terms of looks. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk PHEV concept gives the option of a more civilised vehicle to buyers. This rig has many features including a custom roof rack mounted above a Rhino liner protected roof and 33 inch BFG terrain tires with 20-inch matte grey wheels.
The inside of the model has saddle coloured seats with unique blue stitching and inserts, which are similar to the painted tow hooks on the exterior of the vehicle. This concept is also producible from a standpoint of mass production.
6. Jeep Birdcage Concept By Jeep Performance Parts
The Jeep Birdcage concept is one that takes to the outdoors, for a much better off-roading experience. This model was built on top of the 4xe PHEV four-door model, and its windshield and wipers have been removed. The concept model has 17-inch Beadlock wheels wrapped with 37 inch BFGoodrich KM3 tires. This is made possible by a 2.0-inch lift and a retuned suspension including Fox shocks designed only for the 4xe model. Other additional changes to the concept mainly include a rock slider skid plate and flat fender flares with liners for its wheels and DRLs.
7. Jeep D-Coder Concept by Jeep Performance Parts
Two concepts were introduced by JPP. Out of which, the D-coder is a lot cooler than the other one. This Gladiator has many JPP parts fitted to the model, as well as three dozen scannable QR codes. Every inch of the model is painted with the Maraschino Red colour including areas like the snorkel, rock rails, the carrying rack and the tube style doors. The model will also feature a Gorilla Glass windshield for extra protection.
