Another year of the Jeep brand’s long-standing partnership at the 2019 Easter Jeep Safari has concluded. Pack with Jeep spectators, loads of Jeepers everywhere came to Moab, Utah for the annual spectacle. All-in-all Jeep brought over six new concept vehicles to showcase to the crowd. Among the many Jeep vehicles to choose from as a basis, all took advantage of reimagining a former Jeep concept back in 2005, the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup.
Our Favorites From Moab
Among the choices, we loved the bright blue color showcased as the Jeep J6 concept that looks almost like a Wrangler with its oversized tires that make the truck bed look smaller. The tight concept features a spare tire in the back of the pickup and has a sleek rollover bar added. Lots of eyes were definitely fixated on this concept.
The Jeep M-715 concept looks more like a luxury car that had a simplified Jeep Wrangler soft-top added with again, oversized tires that make the vehicle look so tinier than it actually is. A loud, bright, dull neon green colored interior plays to a sharp contrast of its greyish blue color on the outside. A unique dash plaque and gauges make for the interior to appear vastly different than anything a driver would see in a car as it looks like something out of a plane.
The Five-Quarter Concept Is So Unique
Another stand out was the concept known as the “Five-Quarter”. A powerful convertible military pickup with over 700 horsepower thanks to its Hellcat-powered engine that is modeled after the late 1960s Kaiser Jeep M-715. This was the first Jeep model to produce a convertible aspect. The new concept can handle off-road travels easier with its large sturdy axles, massive 40-inch tires and more ground clearance than most pickups on the road today offer.
The Five-Quarter has front fenders and a hood that is made of carbon fiber. Enclosed beneath the carbon fiber hood is that Supercharged 6.2-Liter “Hellcrate” V8 engine that makes for all the power a driver could ask for. This amazing powertrain is paired to an old-style three-speed Chrysler 727 transmission and a Rock-Track 241OR transfer case that resembles the current Rubicon trim of the latest Wrangler. The headlights are HIDs and look great next to the modified JT Rubicon steel front bumper that provides a menacing look.
Flatbill and Gravity Concepts
Who loves to Motocross? The fans of the Jeep Flatbill with its throwback style and ability to go nearly anywhere. Designed to hold dirt-bikes and Dynatrac ProTock 60 front and rear axles highlight this concept. Thanks to a four-inch lift and massive 40-inch wheels, the Flatbill is a TrailRated Jeep Gladiator with white and yellow flame designs that stand out amongst the orange hew of the Moab desert. The Flatbill concept provides the trusted 3.6-Liter Pentastar engine and stands out for more reasons than one.
The Jeep Gladiator received more love with the Gravity concept that carries a two-inch lift, 17-inch wheels with 35-inch tires and rock rails provided on the sides. Extra illumination brought on by seven-inch LED lamps on the front bumper provide the ultimate lights for a driver to see everything ahead of them with five-inch LED projectors on the A-pillars. Tubular doors and a mesh roof complete the unique experience on this open ride that matches perfectly with Moab desert thanks to the orange colored exterior colors. It’s a sharp looking concept.
We covered the Jeep Wayout and Jeep JT Scrambler concepts earlier this week, both definite standouts at the Moab Easter Week Safari showcase. The Wayout might be the first concept to feature an entire tent and bed that a driver could use to sleep while out exploring. Of course, as a concept vehicle, no customers will get the chance anytime soon to make this happen, but the idea was fun to think about. While the JT Scrambler looked like the coolest throwback Jeep vehicle to never be made back in the 1980s.
