Jeep has unveiled seven concepts for the Moab Easter Jeep Safari. While most of them are pretty cool, we'll focus on the real standouts which include the Crew Chief 715, the FC 150, and the Wrangler Trailcat.
First up, the Crew Chief 715 is based on the Wrangler Unlimited and was designed to pay tribute to previous Jeep military vehicles including the Kaiser M715. As a result, the model has been equipped with a retro-inspired front fascia, a truck bed, and 20-inch beadlock wheels with 40-inch NDT military tires. The truck also has rock rails, a winch, a 4-inch lift kit, and Dana 60 axles.
The unique styling continues in the cabin as designers installed leather with canvas inserts and aircraft-inspired switchgear. The model also has Mopar floor mats and a navigational compass.
Power is provided by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that has been equipped with a cold air intake and a modified exhaust system. FCA declined to mention performance specifications but confirmed the engine is connected to a five-speed automatic transmission.
The retro vibe continues with a 1960 FC 150 that features an original steel body mounted onto the chassis of a 2005 Jeep Wrangler. The truck also has a Dana 44 front axle, a Dana 60 rear axle, and 17-inch steel wheels wrapped in 33-inch BF-Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires.
Last but not least, the Wrangler Trailcat is one hell of an off-roader as it features a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8 engine that produces 707 horsepower and is connected to a six-speed manual transmission. The concept also boasts a chopped windscreen, an extended wheelbase, and Dana 60 axles. Other highlights include custom fender flares, an off-road focused suspension, and 17-inch beadlock wheels with 39.5-inch BF-Goodrich Krawler T/A KX tires.
