Jeep Wrangler Red Rock Concept Shakes Up SEMA
As the 50th anniversary of the Easter Jeep Safari—an annual Jeep extravaganza that is typically where Jeep debuts multiple concept cars—approaches, Jeep has decided to start celebrating a bit early. Earlier this week, the American carmaker showcased a Red Rock-inspired Wrangler concept at the 2015 SEMA Show.
Appropriately named the Jeep Wrangler Red Rock, this concept takes the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Hard Rock body and adds a plethora of after-market features to make it worthy of the rough and tumble Easter Jeep Safari. The exterior features a bright red hue, a 2.0-inch lift, 17-inch beadlock wheels with 35-inch tires, and a Warn winch. It also has LED headlights, a reinforced tailgate, and front and rear differential covers.

But that’s not all—it also has red tow hooks, Granite Crystal bumpers, gloss black detailing, sports rock rails, and, of course, Red Rock badging. Inside, the cabin is outfitted with Amaretto Brown Katzkin leather seats with silver accent stitching and a CB radio.
While SEMA concept cars aren’t typically slated for production, we could be seding the Wrangler Red Rock—or something similar—on dealer lots. Jeep says a special edition model will go on sale next year with only 50 units available.
The Jeep Wrangler Red Rock concept is one of the many vehicles that helped the Wrangler earn the SEMA Hottest 4×4 SUV Award.
