Here’s the thing about Jeep’s yearly parade of “Moab Concept” vehicles: they’re actually running, functional vehicles, and they always head straight to Utah after their unveiling for some good old-fashioned off-road fun. Those rock-crawling hijinks are the subject of today’s Feature Flick.
It’s been just over a week since we first saw Jeep’s new slate of crazy Wrangler- and Grand Cherokee-based vehicles, and Jeep’s yearly Easter Jeep Safari kicks off today. That means somewhere deep in Utah, there’s a bright orange Grand Cherokee with a 3.0-liter diesel and 35-inch Mickey Thompsons off-roading, probably followed by a 2013 Wrangler with translucent fabric body panels.
As usual, we commend Jeep for making concept cars that can conquer more than a press conference stage, even if we’re not so sure how that orange would look in the Target parking lot (at Moab, however, we think it fits right in). Take a look at the video and let us know what you think in the comments below.
