Last week Mopar released drawings of three of the six concept Jeeps they’re preparing for the 46th Annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari in Utah. Here’s two more, the Trailhawk Concept based on the Jeep Cherokee and the Traildozer based on the Jeep Wrangler. Before this we had seen the Jeep Mighty FC concept, Jeep J-12 concept and the Jeep Wrangler Apache. A nice lineup then.
There will also a Mopar-accessorized Jeep Wrangler showcasing many of the more than 250 Mopar offerings available for car. This year Mopar also celebrates the creation of its dedicated Off-road division at the Moab event. The the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab is the gathering place for thousands of die-hard off-road enthusiasts who converge in Utah for a week of non-stop rambling.
As for the newly-announced concepts, the new Grand Cherokee Trailhawk features a unique look with Stone White, a Mineral Gray and Red paint job, 18-inch Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor off-road tires in mineral gray and black headlamp surrounds, black exterior front and rear badging, Red “Trail Rated” badges on the front fenders and a unique “Trailhawk” badge on the rear tailgate.
Technically, it features Quadra-Lift™ air suspension, Selec-Terrain™ traction control system, Off-Road Adventure packages, tow/recovery hooks tested to twice the vehicle’s Gross Vehicle Weight, and class-leading 4×4 systems – including Jeep’s Quadra-Drive® II system that includes a rear Electronic Limited-slip Differential (ELSD), delivering industry-leading tractive capability.
The Wrangler Traildozer is designed jointly by American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) engineering team and is based on a Dozer Yellow 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.
Under the bonnet it features a 470 horsepower 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine mated to a Getrag 238 six-speed manual transmission. With that and a Rubicon-specific Dana 44 axles equipped with 4:10 gears and electronic locking differentials, nothing can get in the way of this bad boy.
Other off-roady stuff on it include 37-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claw radials mounted on Mopar Classic five-spoke wheels, an AEV Dualsport RS 3.5-inch suspension lift, Mopar performance heat reduction hood, Mopar half-door kit and a Mopar/Warn 9.5 Cti winch.
