Jeep will reveal six new concept vehicles at the Jeep Safari this month

Each year Jeep attends the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari. The Jeep Safari is in its 47th year and this year it will occur March 23 through the 31st. The event has Jeep fans showing up from all around the country to try their hand at some challenging trails and other events. This year, Jeep will be showing off six new concept vehicles.

One of the concept vehicles is the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk concept using a Ecodiesel V-6 engine among other interesting features. The most interesting concept vehicles that will be shown off at the event is the deep Wrangler Mopar Recon, which is the grey vehicle pictured above. This impressive Jeep Wrangler is fitted with a 6.4-liter V-8 crate engine from Mopar producing 470 hp.


This Jeep also has a prototype 4.5-inch long-arm lift kit and 39-inch off-road tires. Another of the concept cars is the Wrangler Stitch based on the 2013 Wrangler Rubicon. The Stitch is light at 3000 pounds to give it a better power to weight ratio.

Another concept vehicle is the Wrangler Sand Trooper II from Mopar, which is the beige vehicle seen here. It has a 5.7-liter V8 engine producing 375 hp and 400 pound-foot of torque mated to an automatic transmission. Rounding out the concept vehicles is the Wrangler Flattop with an upscale look inside and out but still offering impressive off-road capability. The Wrangler Slim is designed for performance and lightweight. Many of the parts to build these concept vehicles can be purchased directly from Mopar.
