Jeep has unveiled the first images of two new concepts designed specifically for the annual Easter Safari in the rocky and desert environs of Moab, Utah. In 2021, the arrival will take place from March 27 to April 4. This is the 54th Easter Safari.
Americans promise to completely declassify new items in the near future. Judging by the image, one of the SUVs will be named Magneto. According to Fox News, this name is a reference to one of the characters in the Marvel Universe. The publication assumes that we are talking about an electric model, which will be built on the basis of the Wrangler. Also, the novelty will be equipped with an all-wheel drive system.
Jeep has previously hinted at an all-electric model to celebrate the American brand’s 80th anniversary in 2021. However, then it was argued that the concept will be called The Road Ahead, which can be translated as “further prospects”.
The second prototype will also be built on the basis of the Jeep Wrangler model. The car will be equipped with new optics, power bumper, winch and large rims. It is not yet known whether these concepts will receive production versions in the future.
At the end of last year, the Jeep Wrangler got a version with a hybrid powertrain – 4xe. It includes a gasoline two-liter four-cylinder supercharged engine, two electric motors, a 400-volt 17 kWh battery pack located under the second row of seats. In total, the units produce 380 hp. and 637 Nm of torque.
