An entirely new collection of eye-catching, efficient, and mission-capable concept vehicles will be driven off-road during the 57th annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, on April 1-9, 2023. One of the many beautiful concepts heading to Moab is the 2023 Grand Wagoneer Overland Concept, which reinterprets the all-new Jeep Grand Wagoneer and Wagoneer vehicle legacies and takes the premium SUV into uncharted territories of comfort and adventure.
Jeep Grand Wagoneer Overland Moab Concept: Details
The Jeep Grand Wagoneer Overland concept leverages the all-new 3.0-liter Hurricane Twin Turbo 510 engine to lead adventure-seekers further off the beaten path. Delivering 510 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. The concept’s main feature is a custom RedTail Overland Skyloft (nothing to do with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword) affixed to the top of the Grand Wagoneer’s roof. The carbon-fiber-constructed Skyloft unfolds in around 10 seconds from the inside by simply pushing up with one arm.
To accomplish Skyloft’s integration, the design team removed the second and third-row seats. The rear-most sunroof was repositioned to create a custom weatherproof, pass-thru entrance from the lower third-row seating area to the upper Skyloft level. A fore/aft sliding door and a small step, which also doubles as a usable table, allows for easy access. What’s more? The Skyloft provides a climate-controlled oasis with sleeping space for two people and enough windows to soak in even the most panoramic views.
While the Skyloft may be the optimal choice for a starry night, the main cabin space below also received plenty of attention to detail. Whether it’s to escape a quick downpour or change out of muddy gear, the concept’s truck bed-lined cargo floor easily handles any outdoor element. To complement the Grand Wagoneer‘s rear seat entertainment and other creature comforts, the cozy interior was appointed with two oversized beanbags, a plush throw rug, pillows, and custom ambient interior lighting. The spacious interior also provides storage for bikes, gear, and anything else for the trip.
On the outside, the Grand Wagoneer Overland concept is painted in Industrial Green with Gunmetal accents. A massive Warn winch was added to the front grille, featuring two sets of custom laser lights for superior nighttime visibility. A durable, black Rhino-lined roof has a subtle pop of orange color to pay homage to the countless amounts of outdoor gear used by Overlanding enthusiasts. Additionally, larger wheel openings, custom wheel flares, and custom front chin and rear valance help complete the look while delivering aggressive approach and departure angles for superior off-road capability. Finally, the concept’s 35-inch tires wrapped around custom 18-inch wheels provide a natural 1.5-inch lift to the vehicle for added breakover and ground clearance.
