Jeep® & Mopar Tease Two Of Its New Concepts For The 56th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari!

A New Grand Cherokee 4xe & Gladiator Concepts Are Now Confirmed...

It’s that time of year again when the Jeep® brand begins to tease its annual concept vehicles for the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari. Every year, the Jeep and Mopar brands bring about half a dozen or so, conceptual vehicles to the red rock region. It’s there, that the brand put its ideas about future design, conceptual accessories, and showcases what the brand already offers to the thousands of enthusiasts and Jeep brand loyalists who attend their chance to offer feedback to the automaker.

This year, Jeep has released only two teaser sketches of products it plans on bringing to the 56th Moab Easter Jeep Safari event.

The first sketch clearly shows a two-row 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe model. We can see the charging door on the driver’s side fender, as well as a set of aggressive all-terrain tires. Jeep stated that the sketch is of an “electrified Jeep SUV that will certainly conquer even the most tumultuous terrain along the backcountry trails of Moab and further highlight the Jeep brand’s vision of accomplishing Zero Emission Freedom.”

While it is possible that it could be a more heavily-aggressive Trailhawk 4xe, the signature daytime running lights (DRLs) hint that it could be an Overland model (Trailhawk 4xe has amber-colored DRLs, while the Overland 4xe has white-colored ones). The Grand Cherokee Overland 4xe does offer an optional “Trail Rated” Off-Road Group which consist of 18-inch x 8-inch Polished/Painted aluminum wheels, 265/60R18 BSW all-season all-terrain tires, an electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD), front suspension skid plate, fuel tank skid-plate shield, and a transfer-case skid plate shield. The Overland trim does offer even more luxury over the Trailhawk model.

The second teaser is of a new Jeep Gladiator concept vehicle. While not much was said about the concept, the Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) are present in the sketch. This tells us, that the Mopar JPP team will be bringing some new conceptual accessories for the Gladiator to the event. We also see a big wheel package, that instantly reminds us of the Gladiator Flatbill Concept from two years ago.

What also is unique and maybe a hint is that the sketch is made up of what looks like a QR code. We tried to use a QR reader to scan the code, but it would not read. So for those of you who are good with photoshop, you may be able to crack the code if anything is there.

The Moab Easter Jeep Safari kicks off on Saturday, April 9th, 2022, and will go on until Sunday, April 17th, 2022. Stay tuned as we will continue to bring you more coverage of the new Jeep and Mopar concepts, as they become available.

392 has to be coming to the gladiator, considering the ranger raptor coming in 2023 (though it only has 392 hp). would not be surprised if this is prequel to a factory "xtreme recon" 392 gladiator. Question is if jeep steals US ranger raptor thunder and launches just ahead of it in 2023, or eats its lunch just after the US debut. I'd rather they make it irrelevant just before launch. Ranger raptor only has 33s so i'm sure ford will counter with 35s or maybe 37s soon as they've been trying to compensate with stuffing in larger tires lately.

Modified WL will look very good.

It would be a true shame if Ram and Gladiator do not get a 392 option before the GME T6 or hybrids take over.
