With the automotive world being put on hold this year, it wasn’t surprising to us when we heard that the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) was canceled. In its place, SEMA is holding a virtual SEMA360 event as a solution to the original event’s cancelation. Being held on November 2nd through the 6th, SEMA360 is giving the industry a platform to connect, showcase project vehicle debuts, offer education, and engage in networking opportunities.
While the Jeep® brand dropped out of the annual Easter Moab Jeep Safari earlier this year, they will be showcasing their latest products during the SEMA360 event. Jeep and Mopar have released a sketch for an upcoming concept vehicle that will make its debut during the SEMA360 event.
The unnamed vehicle looks to be based on the 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup and looks to feature a camper bed. Jeep and Mopar reportedly had a number of concept vehicles that were supposed to be showcased at the Easter Moab Jeep Safari, however, only two of them have been shown to the public. The first one was the Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 392 Concept (originally called the Apache – named for its 6.4-liter “Apache” HEMI V8 under the hood). The second was a Gladiator Overlanding concept vehicle called the “Farout”.
Both the Apache and Farout names were trademarked by Jeep on March 6th, 2020. These names were joined by four others, Top Dog, Orange Peelz, Shocker, and Overlook. Judging by the sketch, there is a good chance this is in fact the Overlook Concept that was originally scheduled for its debut back in April.
Stay tuned as we will be covering everything Mopar at the SEMA360 show.
