Jeep Teases Two New Concepts for 50th Annual Easter Jeep Safari
Every year, off-roaders join together in the backcountry of Moab, Utah to take on some of the toughest terrain out there for the Easter Jeep Safari—and this year is no exception.
To help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep has released teaser images of two upcoming concept models that are slated to debut at the big off-roading event.
The Jeep Wrangler “Trailcat” concept and the Jeep “Crew Chief” are two of seven new concept cars that will grace the Jeep Safari with their presence. While the teaser images don’t give us too much of an idea as to what the Jeep concept cars will look like, it appears that they both will be more than ready for the Moab terrain.
The Trailcat lives up to its name with a heavily modified body. It features a bright, neon green exterior color, a black headlight surround, and a sweet hood design that is perfect for the desert. What we can see of the tires indicates that it definitely won’t balk at the harsher routes in Moab. The Trailcat even has some blatant badging that only a Wrangler can truly play off.
As for the Crew Chief, Jeep has truly gone all out. Its front end is reminiscent of the Jeep J12 Concept, and appears to be somewhat of a throwback to Jeep’s past military looks. It features a long hood, an army green exterior, and some pretty wicked tires—when you look closely, it actually just looks a bit like an updated version of the Jeep Chief Concept from last year.
This year’s Easter Jeep Safari will take place in Moab from March 17th to 27th. It tends to be one of Jeep’s favorite places to debut tricked-out models, as drivers take on the rough Moab terrain.
