Days are getting longer and that means it is almost time for the 2023 Easter Jeep Safari. Jeep is already teasing us with some of the cool Jeep concepts we will see unveiled at the 57th annual event, that takes place in Moab, Utah. One of the concept vehicles appears to be the recently unveiled 2023 Jeep Wrangler 20th Anniversary Rubicon 4xe that has been modified with Jeep Performance Parts.
The First Jeep and Jeep Performance Parts Sketches
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4xe is recognizable by its striking blue outline to the Rubicon and Jeep letters. The Rubicon has been outfitted with tubular half doors, to enjoy the open air and the time on the trail. Jeep will only say that one 4xe electrified Jeep SUV is “set to conquer Moab’s tumultuous backcountry trails in absolute silence and further highlight the Jeep brand’s vision of accomplishing Zero Emission Freedom.” This Rubicon appears ready to do that and more.
Full Lineup of Jeep Concept Vehicles
Jeep has been using the Easter Jeep Safari outside Moab, Utah as a test lab of sorts for more than five decades. Jeep shows off some of the concepts that have been carefully planned by designers and off-road enthusiasts. Jeep sees how the concepts perform and are received by the fans and then some of the concepts or performance packages make it into the Jeep lineup.
This year’s 2023 Easter Jeep Safari will take place April 1-9, 2023. The gathering is hosted by Moab’s Red Rock 4-Wheelers club. It is one of the largest off-roading events in the world.
Jeep’s Second Teased Vehicle is Eye-Grabbing Green
Jeep again isn’t releasing any details but the second vehicle appears to be a two door with a huge lift kit and large tires to take on the trails. Jeep describes the concepts as eye-catching, mission capable concept vehicles that will be driven aggressively during the event.
The Jeeps are “one-of-a-kind, rock-crawling, terrain-traversing vehicles that will take four-wheeling to the next level and prove why there’s nothing quite like legendary Jeep 4x4 capability.”
Last year, Jeep had seven concepts at the Easter Jeep Safari plus three of the vehicles that had been unveiled at the SEMA show. The automaker isn’t saying how many concept vehicles will be at the Safari this year. However, we'll follow all of the developments for you right here.
