Every year, during the Easter season, Moab, Utah is taken over by hoards of off-roading adventurers. This year, the 2016 Easter Jeep Safari celebrates its 50th anniversary at the same time Jeep is celebrating its 75th anniversary. To mark this truly special occasion, Jeep and Mopar are bringing seven unique concept vehicles to the Safari.
From March 19th through the 27th, the challenging off-road trails will be taken over by Jeep enthusiasts from all parts of the country. This year, those fans will get to see some amazing off-road machines, including a Jeep Shortcut inspired by the classic CJ-5, a Jeep Crew Chief 715 that salutes the Jeep’s legendary military service, a Jeep Trailcat powered by a Hellcat engine, and four other unbelievable machines.
“These seven vehicles have been modified with Mopar and Jeep Performance Parts to take on the toughest trails, to go beyond where the road ends,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA – Global, in a statement. “Mopar’s mission is to provide all FCA US vehicle owners with unique performance parts and accessories to tailor vehicles to their individual lifestyles. Nothing supports that more than demonstrating how we can equip Jeep owners to take on some of the more extreme trails in the world.”
