Late last month, Jeep issued a pair of teaser images that hinted to what the Trail Rated brand will be showcasing at the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah in April. Those initial images showed what appears to be a new Grand Cherokee and a Gladiator made out of QR code pattern – or something that looks like the QR code pattern. Late last week, the brand issued another brief press release with a new image, this time showing the front fender and hood of a Rubicon model – but we arent sure whether it is a Wrangler or Gladiator.
Moab Easter Jeep Safari Teasers
Every year, the automaker shares teaser images of the modified Jeep vehicles that debut at the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah. These pictures are rarely accompanied by any real details as what to expect, leaving plenty of unanswered questions until the vehicles are actually introduced to the off-roading crowd in Moab. This year is no different, and although there have now been two press releases previewing Easter Jeep Safari vehicle debuts, there is very little information.
The press release in February referenced the 4xe models and it looks like the Grand Cheorkee is a hybrid model, seemingly showcasing the hybrid-specific light blue trim. The Wrangler was the first 4xe model and it took the hybrid market by storm, so the brand expects similar success from the Grand Cherokee 4xe. With that in mind, it would make sense for them company to dress up a hybrid to showcase its off-roading prowess. As for the Gladiator in the odd print, your guess is as good as ours.
This time, the information included with the Jeep teaser image from the top of this piece is even less elaborate, shown below. This bit was also the caption for the newest image.
“Iconic off-roading spots like the historic Rubicon Trail and the backcountry scenic trails of Moab, Utah, are where rock-climbing SUV legends are born. Twenty years ago, the Jeep® brand introduced the most capable production vehicle of its time. Now, the newest Easter Jeep Safari Jeep concept celebrates the legendary 4×4 capability that continues to drive the Jeep brand and defy performance boundaries, decade after decade.”
Based on this, we can guess that Jeep will have a modified Rubicon model on display and possibly in action in Moab, but we don’t know whether it will be a Wrangler or Gladiator. Both of those vehicles have the same basic hood design shown in the new teaser, but in either case, we expect that it will be modified with Jeep Performance Parts to be an even greater off-road machine.
The Easter Jeep Safari will be held on April 9-17, 2022 in Moab, Utah. If you are a fan of Jeeps, off-roading and incredible scenery, a visit to Moab for this annual event should be on your bucket list.
