Jeep unveiled a lineup of concept vehicles for the 2021 Easter Jeep Safari on Monday.

The Safari will take place from March 27 to April 4 in Moab, Utah, with people from around the world gathering for a week of trail raides and off-roading.

“The Moab Easter Jeep Safari has long been our testing ground for both our newest Jeep 4x4s and for showcasing new Jeep brand concepts, Jeep Performance Parts and ideas that truly resonate with our most passionate customers — the die-hard off-road enthusiasts who attend this event every year,” said Jim Morrison, Vice President, Jeep Brand North America. “This year’s Safari shines a spotlight on what makes Jeep vehicles unmistakably distinctive and undeniably capable, a variety of powertrains that deliver superior power, performance, torque and, above all, fun. Moab’s demanding trails are a worthy opponent for our Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator concept vehicles. Each is certain to prove that Jeep’s legendary 4x4 capability reigns supreme on any terrain.”

Among the concepts is Jeep's first-ever battery electric vehicle.

The lineup includes:

Jeep Magneto

This year’s Jeep® “Resto-Mod” is a throwback to the second-generation Jeepster. The Jeepster Beach concept started as a 1968 Jeepster Commando (C-101) and was seamlessly blended with a 2020 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. The body was modified and the exterior fuses original chrome trim with an updated, brightly colored two-tone paint scheme of Hazy IPA and Zinc Oxide. While the Jeepster Beach maintains the outward appearance of a vintage Jeepster, it commands peak performance both on- and off-road delivered by the modern-day Jeep Wrangler.

Jeep Red Bare

The Jeep Red Bare will have a turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine with 260 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft. of torque.

Based on a two-door Wrangler, the Jeep® Orange Peelz concept pays tribute to the long-standing, open-air, fun-and-freedom lifestyle that makes the Jeep Wrangler a global icon. Mopar designers have vastly enhanced the Wrangler’s open-air heritage by removing side and rear windows, installing prototype JPP half doors and a custom removable one-piece Freedom Top glass sunroof.
