The 2021 edition of the Jeep Easter Safari, the traditional event in Utah (USA) organised by the American manufacturer from 27 March to 4 April 2021, will be full of concept cars. The most important prototype, however, is the Wrangler Magneto, a 100% electric version of the well-known off-roader and based on the two-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The Jeep Magneto uses a 285 horsepower custom axial-flow electric motor powered by a 70 kWh battery pack. Externally, the Magneto sports a Bright White livery with Surf Blue trim, a bonnet with a center air intake and decal, a redesigned tailgate and a front lighting system with full-width dramatic lights. Custom blue and black leather combination seats, blue upholstery and Mopar floor mats give the Magneto’s interior an electrifying look.

Jeepster Beach

This year’s “Resto-Mod” is a tribute to the second-generation Jeepster. The Jeepster Commando was the first compact four-wheel-drive vehicle with an automatic transmission. Unlike the CJs of its day, it boasted modern, standard comfort features such as doors, roll-up side windows, heating and a roof. The starting point for the Jeepster Beach concept was the 1968 Jeepster Commando (C-101) model, to which a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon was seamlessly integrated. Jeepster Commandos were models created for fun in the sun, and this beach-themed model continues that tradition by embodying a lively, carefree attitude. The bodywork has been modified, and the exterior blends the original chrome trim with a two-tone paint scheme in vibrant Hazy IPA and Zinc Oxide tones. Although the Jeepster Beach retains the exterior appearance of a vintage Jeepster, it offers the exceptional performance provided by the modern Jeep Wrangler both on and off the road.

Jeep Red Bare

The most challenging terrain demands a proper powertrain. The Jeep Red Bare Gladiator Rubicon concept draws on the long tradition of work trucks, and adds the Jeep brand’s legendary 4×4 capability to deliver high performance, efficiency and range. Red Bare features heavy-duty Dana 44 axles front and rear with a 4.88 axle ratio for optimum performance; and offers a 91:1 reduction ratio to tackle Moab’s most challenging trails. The design behind the Red Bare concept is inspired by the passion and enthusiasm of Jeep SUV owners, who spend hours creating the custom look with specific modifications to highlight the unique personality of their dependable off-road vehicle.

Jeep Orange Peelz

Inspired by the Wrangler’s two-door configuration, the Jeep Orange Peelz concept is a tribute to the free-spirited lifestyle, fun and open-air driving that has made the Jeep Wrangler a global icon. Mopar engineers enhanced the Wrangler’s open-air character by removing the side and rear windows, and installing a prototype half-door and custom one-piece glass sunroof. Enhancing the exterior look is the custom 360-degree graphics and Jeep badge on the vintage wing, both in satin black – styling details that further highlight the eye-catching Orange Peelz livery. The bonnet features custom black Mopar hinges with a Jeep Willys logo, and 5-inch JPP LED off-road lights that illuminate the track with 4,800 lumens each.

Jeep Farout

This concept is a replica of the Wayout unveiled in 2019. Jeep Farout is a true ‘overland’ vehicle that takes advantage of the Jeep Gladiator model year 2021’s cargo capacity and 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine to allow adventure seekers to push off the beaten track. The main feature of this functional model is the customizable Truck Topper AT Overland Equipment Habitat™ camping tent. This spacious 16-foot-long, 7.5-foot-high tent opens and closes in seconds. Once opened, it comfortably sleeps four people. The Farout’s exterior features a new Earl body colour with Chartreuse trim on the bonnet, tailgate tow hooks, suspension, badges and shocks. The Farout’s warm wood-trimmed interior features soft lighting, and features a refrigerator and stove. There’s no shortage of coat hooks, built-in seating, and room for a coffee table.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392

The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is now a production model, but was originally conceived as a concept car. It has an adventurous soul, a high-performance V8 engine, a striking interior and a customised exterior. The exuberant character and extreme performance of this modified four-door 2020 Wrangler Rubicon model year is expressed through the dual active exhaust system, centre bonnet scoop, custom half-doors and Sky One-Touch Powertop roof with removable side panels for open-air driving. The Granite Crystal exterior is embellished with bronze-coloured accents on the tow hooks, badges, suspension and dampers. The interior is equally bold and features durable upholstery and custom seats in Oxblood Red leather with gold stitching.

Jeep Top Dog

Using custom Jeep Performance Parts, Mopar engineers transformed a Jeep Gladiator into a fun concept vehicle developed for mountain bikers. Painted K-9 blue, the Top Dog further expands the Jeep pickup’s cargo capabilities by eliminating the stock cargo box and replacing it with a special custom box system. On the passenger side, the cargo system features pull-out drawers where bikers can safely store the tools and supplies they need for their excursions. Generous interior shelves, switches for exterior lighting and additional power supplies are all within easy reach. On the driver’s side, the cargo system incorporates a battery-powered refrigerator and electric hot-dog cooker to provide bikers with a boost of energy before the exertions of the next trail. Above the cab, two Rhino rack structures provide additional cargo space for tools and accessories.
