Seven Jeep concept vehicles are set to join thousands of off-road vehicles on March 19-27, 2016 at Easter Jeep Safari at Moab, Utah. These seven ultra-capable concepts are fitted with Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts – which are also available to customers.
These dates mark the 50th running of the annual event that coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Jeep brand. Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand at FCA Global, remarked that every year, the Jeep team tries to defy the limits with new concept vehicles brought to Easter Jeep Safari, an event where the brand usually gets a huge amount of valuable feedback.
He remarked that this year’s edition of the event is extra special, since it marks the 50th year of the Easter Jeep Safari and 75th anniversary of the brand. He described the concept Jeep vehicles as seven of the most capable and stunning Jeeps created for the annual event.
These seven Easter Jeep Safari concepts employ both production and prototype Jeep Performance Parts. The Mopar brand, meanwhile, took care of the development and production. Mopar also ensured that all Jeep Performance Parts were able to comply with the required specifications and 4x4 capabilities.
Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA – Global, remarked that seven Easter Jeep Safari concepts have been modified to take on the toughest trails and to tackle trails off the road. He remarked that Mopar has a mission to provide all FCA US vehicle owners with distinct performance parts and accessories to suit their individual taste.
This mission could be better backed up by demonstrating how they could equip Jeep owners to enable them to tackle some of the more extreme trails in the world.
These seven Easter Jeep Safari concepts consist of the Jeep Crew Chief 715, Jeep Renegade Commander, Jeep Shortcut, Jeep Comanche, Jeep Trailcat, Jeep FC 150 and Jeep Trailstorm. They are the latest of over 50 concept vehicles that Mopar has built for the Easter Jeep Safari since the brand’s inception in 2002.
