Jeep built a very cool, Land Rover discovery-inspired Safari Concept based on the Jeep Wrangler JK for the 2015 Moab Easter Jeep Safari and has revived the nameplate for a new, modern-take on the vehicle.
The concept features high-tech components such as a fully translucent hard-top roof, unique clear vinyl “windoors” that are fully removable and an incorporated drone. Some off-road related features include an on-board air system, Dana 44 axles with diff lockers, a 2-inch lift, full length skid plates, custom 18-inc wheels with 35-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain tires and upgraded brakes. The powertrain remains stock, apart from a cold air intake for the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine.
The cabin features the steering wheel from a Fiat (odd choice) and front and rear bucket seats. There’s also an instrument-mounted iPad, which may point to a similar infotainment system place/design on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL. There’s also some other clear JL Wrangler inspired pieces such as the grille, raked windshield, LED headlamps and taillamps and rounded off fenders and window frame corners.
