Yesterday, the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Product Design Studio released some teaser shots of a couple of the concepts coming to this year’s Moab Easter Jeep® Safari. While they didn’t release details about either concept, we can tell both are Gladiator based concepts.
We know judging by the one picture one is called the Jeep J6 Concept. Now we have seen the Jeep J-12 Concept, which was a Wrangler (JK) based regular cab pickup. The original Jeep Gladiator also shared the J-Series nameplate later in itself, with vehicles like the J-10 and J-20. From the picture, if you look closely, we see that it seems like the J6 Concept might have a roof similar very similar to the Jeep J-12 Concept (shown below). We predict that this concept will essentially be a regular cab version of the all-new Gladiator. We also see a wide range of current Mopar accessories and what looks to be a rollbar with lights.
The second picture shows us an image of a highly customized Gladiator concept. While we can’t tell much from the second shot, we do see that it will showcase a yellow and black graphics featuring the number “41” hinting at the 1941 birthday of the original Willys MB. In the back, we see what look what looks like a track system for a pair of motocross bikes. We also see a new bed rail system that has built-in tie-downs and a new roll bar behind the cab. Judging by the drawing, expect huge offroad tires, probably 37-inches in diameter. The front fenders could be of a different design as well.
We will know more about these new exciting Jeep concepts soon. The concept will head to Moab, April 13th through 21st for the Easter Jeep® Safari. So stay tuned…
