These 7 Jeep Concept Vehicles will make you go WOW!

The Jeep and Mopar brands have once again joined forces to create seven new, custom-built concept vehicles. The concept cars were created for the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, which took place between March 24 and April 1, 2018.

Jeep 4SPEED Concept:

Jeep 4SPEED Concept 2018 (4)

The Jeep 4SPEED concept is the latest in a line of lightweight Easter Jeep Safari concepts. The 4SPEED is the latest lightweight concept which follows the popular Pork Chop concept in 2011 and Stitch concept in 2013. This model bolsters Wrangler’s off-road capability and performance through extensive weight savings.

The Jeep 4SPEED concept features custom weight saving measures including a carbon fiber hood, high-clearance carbon fiber fender flares and a carbon fiber rear tub with perforated aluminium panels.

The 4SPEED concept boasts of a sleek side profile courtesy of a raked windshield, elongated door openings and an aggressively swept back custom cage. The rear of the concept utilizes custom, lightweight bodywork, and because of the combined weight savings, 4SPEED’s ride height is two inches higher than a stock Wrangler.

In addition to being lightweight, overall length has been shortened by 22 inches while leaving the wheelbase at its stock length, resulting in increased approach and departure angles. The Jeep 4SPEED Concept is fitted with Dana 44 front and rear axles with a 4.10 gear ratio and 18-inch lightweight monoblock wheels wrapped in 35-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires.

The interior gets a customized instrument panel, and re-trimmed front seats, while the rear seats have been removed. The welding curtain has been repurposed as a bikini top. The floor has been bedlined and the footwells have been replaced with perforated aluminium panels.

Power for the Jeep 4SPEED concept comes from an all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine which is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Jeep Sandstorm Concept:

Jeep Sandstorm Concept 2018 (3)

Jeep Sandstorm concept is inspired by Baja desert racers. This concept vehicle is all about blitzing long, sandy straightaways while still being capable of handling the daily driving duties To accomplish this, the Sandstorm features off-road hardware that will handle both with ease, including an extreme-duty suspension system and a powertrain with excess power on tap.

To give it the Baja look, the exterior of the Sandstorm concept features custom styling cues including a vented carbon fiber hood, vented high clearance front and rear fender flares and a cage that include a rear mounted lay down style spare tire carrier. To give it a cleaner look, the exterior handles and swing gate have been removed while the rear doors have been chopped.

Other custom Baja-inspired touches include high clearance front and rear tube bumpers, modified rock rails, an integrated onboard air compressor, race-style fuel filler, KC Carbon series front auxiliary lights and a chase light.

Inside, the concept vehicle features a custom cage that integrates the chassis, leather-trimmed front seats and unique low-back racing bucket seats in the rear. A racing-inspired cluster and 7-inch off-road GPS unit handle navigation while independent rocker switches control onboard electronics, air compressor, and axle lockers. The Sandstorm concept sheds all plastic trim and carpet in favour of a bedlined floor.

The front axle of the Jeep Sandstorm concept has been moved forward four inches and utilizes a heavy-duty longarm four-link suspension and track bar. The rear axle has been moved back two inches and utilizes a triangulated trailing arm four-link suspension. The longer wheelbase allows for increased high-speed stability. The front wheels can travel up to 14 inches while the rear wheels can travel up to 18 inches thanks to the custom coilovers and bypass shocks.

For even more capability, the Jeep Sandstorm concept includes heavy-duty front and rear Dynatrac 60 axles with a 5.68 gear ratio, 17-inch beadlock wheels and 39.5-inch BF Goodrich Krawler tires.

The Jeep Sandstorm is powered by a 6.4-liter V-8 engine from the Mopar performance catalogue and is mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

Jeep B-Ute Concept:

Jeep B-Ute Concept 2018 (4)

The Jeep B-Ute concept is equipped with a variety of Jeep Performance Parts for the ultimate off-road adventure. It features unique front and rear fascias and upper grille area, a hood with heat extractors, and wider flares.

Jeep Performance Parts featured on the B-Ute concept include a 1.5-inch lift kit, a roof rack and rock rails. The SUV’s off-road capabilities are increased by using 17-inch wheels with a 30-millimetre offset, wrapped in BF Goodrich T/A Baja Champion tires.

Inside, the B-Ute concept features custom trimmed seats with Mineral inserts, a Carbonite finish on the shifter, speaker and vent surrounds, Piano Black inserts, a MOLLE system on the back of the front seats, and Mopar all-weather floor mats.

The Jeep B-Ute is powered by a 2.4-liter Tigershark engine, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Nacho Jeep Concept:

Nacho Jeep Concept 2018 (5)

The Nacho Jeep Concept is built to serve as a rolling catalogue and is loaded with selections from the Mopar brand’s Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) menu. It offers a blueprint for the off-roaders to create their own custom trail vehicle.

Based on the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, this concept vehicle stands out thanks to the rare Nacho yellow colour. The Jeep Nacho concept features a brawny hood that is accented with the standard black hood graphic featuring the all-new JPP badge. It is engineered to accommodate a cold-air intake that feeds the 2.0-liter turbocharged I-4 engine. The satin black Mopar grille adds contrast to the Nacho exterior, and the sturdy steel Rubicon bumper offers off-road protection and functionality and includes a Warn Winch kit as well.

Superior trail visibility which is inspired by the Jeep Luminator concept vehicle shown at Moab in 2017, is delivered by A-pillar and brush guard-mounted LED lights from the Automotive Lighting division of Magneti Marelli, that mount via JPP brackets. Automotive Lighting LED header lights seal to the windshield for extra forward illumination, and a rear off-road scouting light uses four-colour LEDs to communicate trail conditions: stop (red), 1-3 miles per hour (amber), 3-25 mph (green) and a rear flood light (white).

For increased off-road clearance, the Nacho concept gets a 2-inch lift kit and also includes new 2.5-inch diameter aluminium body shocks. Oversized 37-inch tires wrap around 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels which are finished in a satin-carbon. The beadlock trim rings are finished in high-gloss black and secured with cadmium-plated bolts. Other Jeep Performance Parts include thicker and wider rock rails to protect the exterior and carry a grippier coating similar to that used on Ram Truck bedliners, 2-inch-round tube doors and grab handles embossed with the iconic Jeep grille logo to assist in vehicle ingress.

The spare tire tailgate hinge reinforcement provides a rock-solid foundation for a spare tire carrier that mounts to the tailgate with strength enough to handle 37-inch tires. A JPP fuel door in black finish completes the exterior.

Inside, the Nacho Jeep gets Black Katzkin leather seats with the Jeep grille logo embroidered in light tungsten stitching on seatbacks, and light tungsten accent stitching on the seat bolsters.

Jeep Jeepster Concept:

Jeep Jeepster Concept 2018 (6)

Based on a Wrangler Rubicon, Jeep Jeepster Concept evokes the colour palette and speedy styling of the 1966 Jeepster. Available Jeep Performance Parts concept modifications combine to bring to life this concept vehicle.

The original’s classic two-tone graphic theme is mirrored on its modern-day counterpart with a Firecracker Red body, set off by a Bright White concept hardtop, chopped by two inches, and a Bright White custom windshield raked back 2.5 degrees to create a cropped, compact appearance.

The customized windshield maintains the all-new Wrangler’s convenient fold-down feature. Bright White also accents the perimeter of the Rubicon fender flares and an upper portion of the concept half doors. Jeep badging is replaced with a tri-colour Jeepster hard badge.

The Jeepster deftly balances concept possibilities with a range of presently available Jeep Performance Parts, including a JPP hood and graphic, without the optional cold-air intake or snorkel. LED off-road lights in 5- and 7-inch applications illuminate the trail for the Jeepster, shining bright at up to 8,000 lumens. The LED lights are mounted to the A-pillar via light brackets. The Rubicon steel bumper features premium production LED fog lamps.

A 2-inch lift kit and 2.5-inch diameter aluminium body shocks work with oversized, 37-inch BF Goodrich KO2 tires to raise the Jeepster above off-road obstacles. Beadlock-capable 17-inch wheels are accented by body-colour matching Firecracker Red beadlock trim rings. Additional items from the JPP portfolio include a black fuel door, grab handles and all-weather floor mats.

Inside the Jeepster, a concept tubular roll cage replaces the sport bar and an additional 38-inch tire is secured with a custom in-cabin spare tire carrier. The interior meshes off-road functionality with premium features, including black Katzkin leather seats with Rubicon Red Jeep grille logos embroidered on the seatbacks, and Rubicon Red accent stitching on the seat bolsters. The instrument panel inserts are Firecracker Red to tie in with the exterior.

Relocation of the spare tire to the cabin provides an opportunity for another custom touch: concept storage packs mounted to the tailgate for transport of gear and supplies such as food, water and tools. The packs feature a split design to accommodate the rearview camera. It also gets a concept rock step which is a unique combination of a rock rail/sidestep.

Jeep J-Wagon Concept:

Jeep J-Wagon Concept 2018 (2)

The Jeep J-Wagon concept is personalized with Jeep Performance Parts to create a premium-styled vehicle equally at home on the trails and urban cityscapes.

Based on a Jeep Wrangler Sahara, the J-Wagon is painted a conceptual Warm Neutral Grey with warm-tinted glass, and complemented with subtle Brass Monkey touches throughout the exterior. The J-Wagon Concept features a version of the JPP hood designed with a cutout kit to work with the available snorkel. The hood latch is Brass Monkey and further embellished with a black Willys logo.

For hardcore off-roaders, new 5-inch LED lights mount with JPP brackets to deliver commercial and military grade illumination. The concept also features a Mopar black grille pulled from a Wrangler Rubicon and body-colour matching bezel trim. The premium Sahara bumper aligns with the vehicle’s colour pattern via Brass Monkey fog lamp bezels. The J-Wagon concept also features 17-inch slot-design wheels that are also finished in Brass Monkey.

Black metal concept rock sliders guard the J-Wagon’s exterior, and a matching black metal concept JPP roof rack offers utility and functionality to fit any lifestyle. A black JPP fuel door and Orange Crush accents on the Jeep badge and tow hooks add style points. A spare 35-inch KM3 BF Goodrich tire mounts to the spare tire tailgate hinge reinforcement, and includes the JPP Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) light relocation kit.

Inside, the concept gets Camel-color Katzkin leather seats which give an elite feel and feature stark brown piping and plow-through inserts that mimic the triangulated grille design of the concept rock rails. Eye-level Brass Monkey trim and bezel accents on the HVAC vents, door handles and steering wheel harmonize the interior with the exterior.


Jeep Wagoneer Roadtrip Concept:

Jeep Wagoneer Roadtrip Concept 2018 (3)

The Jeep Wagoneer Roadtrip concept retains its heritage and charm and continues to utilize its original steel body, while the chassis and drivetrain have been updated.

The wheelbase has been stretched by five inches, and the body has been updated to accept the additional length, a wider track and custom fender flares. Other subtle exterior styling tweaks include reshaped wheel wells, bumpers and integrated rock rails. It also gets a razor grille while Bottle Green architectural glass replaces the original pieces.

The Jeep Wagoneer’s off-road capability has been bolstered courtesy of a boxed and reinforced frame, Dana 44 front and rear axles with lockers, four-link suspension with coil over springs, and 17-inch steel wheels wrapped in 33-inch BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain tires.

Inside, the Wagoneer Roadtrip Concept features original front and rear bench seats, door panels, kick and rear panels, all trimmed in Oxblood-colored leather. A wicker headliner gives the Wagoneer an open, lighter feel and the floor has been bedlined. Additional interior details include a custom cooler fashioned from period-correct luggage and a tool box

created from the valve cover of this Wagoneer’s original 230 Tornado OHC-6 engine.

Known as the original luxury 4×4, this 1965 Jeep Wagoneer is rich with heritage and is built to scale the trails of Moab or cruise the vast highways of the western states. Built from 1963 to 1991, the Wagoneer was the first four-wheel-drive vehicle mated to an automatic transmission, pioneering the first modern SUV. The classic Jeep Wagoneer is a beloved icon and continues to enjoy a robust following of enthusiasts worldwide.

The Jeep Wagoneer heritage vehicle is powered by a 5.7-liter V-8 and is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.
