Trust us … these 2017 Jeep® brand concept vehicles are no mirage. This year the Jeep brand arrived in the Utah desert ready to turn heads and tackle trails with a lineup of off-road-ready concept vehicles. The one-of-a-kind 4×4 vehicles, built in partnership with Mopar® using Jeep Performance Parts, were introduced to off-road enthusiasts at the 51st annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari, and set off on a week-long desert adventure on some of the toughest, most challenging trails in the world.
The 2017 Jeep brand concept vehicles were put through the paces in Moab, displaying legendary Jeep brand capability and their own unique design and style. Here’s a rundown of the concept vehicles and their inspiration:
The Jeep® Grand One concept celebrates the 25th anniversary of the 1993 Grand Cherokee ZJ.
The Jeep® Safari concept delivers optimal views for all passengers while providing protection from the elements.
The Jeep® Quicksand concept is a hot rod-inspired Wrangler built for sand dunes.
