Jeep has just unveiled an entirely new collection of eye-catching, efficient, and mission-capable concept vehicles that will be heading off-road during the 2023 Easter Jeep Safari, on April 1-9, 2023, in Moab, Utah. We’ll cover four of the seven concept vehicles here; The Jeep Scrambler 392 Concept, Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe Concept, Departure Concept, and the Sideburn concept.
Jeep Scrambler 392 Concept: Details
The Jeep Scrambler 392 concept started as a four-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The build emphasizes lightweight off-road performance, achieved through custom carbon-fiber bodywork. Coupled with the 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine under the hood, this thing has some high performance. The transformation showcases the Scrambler’s new two-door aesthetic with an open-air freedom personality.
The Jeep Scrambler 392 concept features the newly released AccuAir air suspension kit developed for the Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator. The system allows an adjustable suspension lift ranging from 1.5 inches up to 5.5 inches and can be custom adjusted on the fly with an in-cab controller or through long-range Bluetooth on a wireless device.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe Concept: Details
Following the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the special-run, limited-edition Tuscadero exterior paint color that debuted in 2021 for Jeep Wrangler models, the Jeep design team decided to put the ante on the head-turning chromatic magenta color. Enter this unique Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe concept with its electrified off-road capability, unapologetic color palette, and a powerful platform for adventure.
The exterior of the Jeep concept boasts an eye-catching, Pink-hued paint with Gloss Black accents sprinkled across the front grille and headlamp bezels. In addition, the off-road capability has been increased with the AccuAir suspension kit, which allows ample clearance for massive 37-inch tires wrapped around custom 17-inch gloss black AEV Borah wheels.
Jeep Wrangler 4xe Departure Concept: Details
The Jeep Wrangler 4xe Departure concept builds upon the iconic open-air cockpit of the best-selling and most capable PHEV in America with innovative and conceptual items from the JPP by the Mopar design team. Riding on 17-by-8.5-inch Vintage Bronze KMC Impact OL wheels and 37-inch BFGoodrich tires, the Wrangler 4xe Departure concept features a JPP 2-inch lift kit with Bilstein performance shock absorbers.
Protecting the front grille is a custom-designed tubular grille guard measuring 4 feet by 1 foot that folds down to create an innovative bumper bench, a perfect relaxation perch for two while out on the trails. The Wrangler 4xe Departure Concept also features a concept instrument panel accessory rail to mount phones or accessories for recording trail rides.
Jeep Gladiator Sideburn Concept: Details
The Jeep Gladiator Sideburn concept, wearing a striking Solar Flash Yellow, explores new tools designed for the burgeoning interest in off-road adventure. The Gladiator Sideburn concept features a JPP 2-inch lift kit with Bilstein performance shock absorbers. Black HRE 17-by-9-inch FT1 six-spoke wheels ride on 27-by-13-inch BFGoodrich tires at all four corners.
The bed on the Gladiator Sideburn concept is truly unique. Created further to enhance the strong and lightweight Jeep design language, the bed features integral Molle panels above and behind the wheel flares for additional storage. In addition, Integral RotoPaX containers are specifically designed for liquid storage during off-road adventures. Finally, a modified Mopar bed-mounted spare tire carrier within the bed holds a 37-inch wheel and tire.
