|   Tuesday, May 31, 2016
Jeep celebrates this year 75 years of existence. Also this year, Jeep fans gathered for edition number 50 of the Easter Jeep Safari festival which was hosted by Moab in Utah. For several years, Jeep has started to exploit more attentively the free image capital provided by the festival.

Therefore, each annual Easter Jeep Safari brings a number of Jeep concepts. As 2016 is a year with a distinct significance (75 years of Jeep and 50 years of the festival), it is honored by the American company with the presentation of seven concepts.


The concepts are designed to promote the range of accessories Jeep Performance Parts and Mopar. In other words, from a technical point of view you can access all parts and accessories presented on the concepts. But as always, the design makes the difference.

The 7 concepts are: Jeep Crew Chief 715, Jeep Trailcat, Jeep Renegade Commander, Jeep Shortcut, Jeep Comanche, Jeep Trailstorm, Jeep FC 150.
The Jeep Crew Chief 715 is definitely the most spectacular concept of the 7 presented. This version is desired to be a tribute to military models. In particular, for this concept, the source of inspiration was the Kaiser M715 military model, a variant that was based on civilian version, Jeep Gladiator.

The concept is built on the chassis of the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Unlike the military model, the concept brings an extra two doors and rear seats. The interior is far from military austerity though. It is filled with leather upholstery, infotainment system, and even a compass. The Jeep Crew Chief 715 is powered by a V6 Pentastar engine with a displacement of 3.6 liters, cupped to a 5-speed automatic gearbox.

The Jeep Trailcat is an extreme off-roader. It is the model with which you can travel almost anywhere you like. Most definitely the concept will feel at home on the cliffs of Moab. Under the hood, it has a HEMI V8 with a displacement of 6.2 liters, mated to a 6-speed manual box. To make use of the 707 horsepower concept, Jeep increased the wheelbase by 30.5 cm.

A small aesthetic artifice also contributes to the added aggressiveness. The front windscreen frame has been lowered by 5 cm. The interior is not so bourgeois however seeing that the seats are taken from the Dodge Viper.

The Jeep Shortcut is made as homage to the 50s a concept inspired by the Jeep CJ-5. The concept is based on the Jeep Wrangler. The front has been completely redesigned to honor the legendary CJ-5. All body panels are custom. The concept is shorter than a Wrangler - 66 cm have been cut.
The Jeep Renegade Commander is probably the most peaceful of the studies, and we can consider it a practical tuning job. The model is more than a shop window for the Mopar accessories range and Jeep Performance.

The Jeep Comanche is based on a Jeep Renegade and the Comanche concept and is intended to connect with the pick-up models from Jeep's history.
The Jeep FC 150 is no longer just a concept; we have a Jeep FC 150 from 1960, a true American legend, a model that was produced between 1956 and 1965. The exterior was preserved and talks about a skin that bears traces of the years that have passed over it. But, under it things have evolved significantly.

Lastly, the Jeep Trailstorm is based on the Wrangler Unlimited, and is an offer for those who love the off-road. The model provides storage space for equipment and extra fuel.
