The Jeep brand has always been synonymous with off-road adventure and this year’s Easter Jeep Safari promises to be no different. From April 1st through the 9th, the brand will unveil an entirely new collection of concept vehicles that are sure to turn heads and take four-wheeling to the next level. With a focus on electrified power and commanding performance, Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) by Mopar has designed several one-of-a-kind vehicles that are built to tackle any terrain.
One such vehicle is the 2023 Grand Wagoneer Overland Concept, which reinterprets the legendary legacy of the Grand Wagoneer and takes it into uncharted territories of comfort and adventure. This go-anywhere, do-anything concept vehicle is designed to take off-road exploration to the next level while maintaining the luxurious style and comfort of the Grand Wagoneer.
The Grand Wagoneer Overland Concept boasts an impressive 3.0-liter Hurricane Twin Turbo 510 engine that delivers 510 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft. of torque. This powerful engine offers premium performance while also delivering improved fuel economy compared to many competitors’ naturally aspirated V-8 and boosted six-cylinder engines.
The Overlanding-inspired concept features a custom RedTail Overland Skyloft affixed to the top of the Grand Wagoneer’s roof. The carbon-fiber-constructed Skyloft unfolds in around 10 seconds from the inside by simply pushing up with one arm. To accomplish the Skyloft’s integration, the design team removed the second- and third-row seats and repositioned the rear-most sunroof to create a custom weatherproof, pass-thru entrance from the lower third-row seating area to the upper Skyloft level. The Skyloft provides a climate-controlled oasis complete with sleeping space for two people and enough windows to soak in even the most panoramic views.
The main cabin space below also received plenty of attention to detail, with a truck bed-lined cargo floor that handles any outdoor element with ease. To complement the Grand Wagoneer’s rear seat entertainment and other creature comforts, the cozy interior was appointed with two oversized beanbags, a plush throw rug, pillows, and custom ambient interior lighting. The spacious interior also provides ample storage for bikes, gear, and anything else worthy of the trip.
The exterior of the Grand Wagoneer Overland Concept is painted in Industrial Green with Gunmetal accents. A massive Warn winch was added to the front grille and features two sets of custom laser lights for superior night-time visibility. A durable, black Rhino-lined roof has a subtle pop of orange color to pay homage to the countless amounts of outdoor gear used by Overlanding enthusiasts.
Larger wheel openings and custom wheel flares, as well as a custom front chin and rear valance, help complete the look while also delivering aggressive approach and departure angles for superior off-road capability. The concept’s 35-inch tires wrapped around custom 18-inch wheels provide a natural 1.5-inch lift to the vehicle for added break-over and ground clearance.
The Grand Wagoneer Overland Concept is a testament to Jeep’s commitment to innovation and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in off-road adventure.
