Production 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 shown
Completing our 2021 Easter Jeep Safari report are Gladiator Farout, Wrangler Rubicon 392 and Gladiator Top Dog concepts that did not make it to MOAB last year due to the pandemic.
The Jeep Farout concept is a go-anywhere, do-anything Jeep concept takes off-road exploration to the next level.
Jeep Farout – an encore to 2019’s Wayout concept – is a true overlanding vehicle that leverages the 2021 Jeep Gladiator’s class-leading payload and fuel-efficient, long-range-capable 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine to lead adventure-seekers further off the beaten path.
The main feature of this fully functional concept is a neatly contained, customized deployable AT Overland Equipment Habitat™ Truck Topper. The spacious 16-foot long and 7.5-foot tall recreational residence opens and retracts in a matter of seconds. Once unpacked, it comfortably sleeps up to four.
Long gone is the cold, monochromatic look and feel of a traditional overlanding vehicle. The Farout’s warm, inviting wood-lined interior features soft ambient lighting, a fully functional refrigerator and stove, plus hanging storage racks, built-in seats and table space.
Inside the Farout’s customized cab, outdoorsy fashion and style are celebrated with dark smoke blue leather, orange stitching and plaid flannel seat inserts.
Farout’s exterior features a new Earl body color with Chartreuse accents on the hood, rear tailgate tow hooks, springs, badging and shocks. Its rugged stature is emphasized with a JPP 2-inch lift kit, 17-inch matte charcoal rims, 37-inch mud-terrain tires, a modified Gladiator Rubicon steel bumper equipped with a 12,000-lb. Warn winch, custom front and rear rock rails and FOX™ performance shocks to easily overcome obstacles. Its integrated roof-rack system allows hauling additional gear topside.
The third-generation turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine, available in the production Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator, delivers increased torque and horsepower, along with superb fuel economy and minimal levels of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). In the production Jeep Gladiator, the EcoDiesel powertrain delivers well in excess of 425 miles of driving range.
Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392
The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is making its way to production this year. But it was first conceived as this V-8 powered Wrangler Rubicon concept. A warrior at heart, this high-performance Jeep Wrangler concept dares to be different with its performance V-8 engine, stunning interior and customized exterior.
Designed for unequivocal power and performance, the heart of the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 is its 6.4-liter (392-cubic-inch) V-8 engine, generating 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. Nearly 75% of this naturally aspirated engine’s peak torque is available just above engine idle speed, enhancing its prowess off-road and on.
The boisterous persona of this modified four-door 2020 Wrangler Rubicon is signaled by an active dual-mode performance exhaust that switches between wild and outrageous, a performance hood with center scoop, custom-built half doors and Sky One-touch powertop with removable side panels for open-air freedom.
The concept’s Granite Crystal exterior is adorned with bronze-accentuated tow hooks, badging, springs and shocks. The interior is just as bold with its durable truck bedliner and custom, Oxblood Red leather seats with gold stitching.
For additional capability, a JPP 2-inch lift kit, custom 17-inch beadlock wheels with 37-inch mud-terrain tires, Mopar Rock Rails, steel bumpers with Warn winch and steel belly pan were added to help navigate treacherous terrain and challenging off-road conditions.
Jeep Top Dog
Using exclusive Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) and custom accessories, Mopar designers transformed a 2020 Jeep Gladiator into a fun concept vehicle for serious mountain bikers.
Painted K-9 Blue, the Jeep Top Dog concept expands the cargo-carrying abilities of the most capable Jeep truck ever by removing the standard cargo box and replacing it with a custom PCOR flatbed storage system.
On the passenger side of the storage system, pull-out drawers securely store tools and supplies that mountain bikers need when out on the trails. Vast interior storage shelves, exterior lighting switches and extra power supplies are within easy reach.
On the driver’s side of the storage system, a battery-powered refrigerator and electric hot dog roller grill stand ready to refuel riders for the next section of challenging trails.
Above the cab area, two Rhino rack structures provide additional storage space for tools and equipment. Dual concept exterior task lights are mounted on each side and a set of traction mats for vehicle recovery and extraction are also attached to the storage racks. On top of the rack structure, a dual-bike rack provides a safe way to transport the Trek mountain bikes to the trails. Just above the rear-facing winch, a roll-out storage drawer carries a foldable ladder used for access to the dual-bike rack.
For outstanding off-road capability, the Jeep Top Dog concept features a JPP 2-inch lift kit with FOX shocks that provides increased ground clearance, augmented by 17-inch JPP beadlock-capable aluminum wheels and 37-inch BF Goodrich KM3 mud-terrain tires. Concept steel “high-top” fender flares provide additional clearance at all four corners.
Powering the Jeep Top Dog concept is the proven 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque mated to a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission.
Defending the front end of the Jeep Top Dog concept is a JPP Rubicon bumper. The bumper holds a concept 2-inch steel grille guard, inspired by the Jeep J6 concept and the exclusive JPP 8,000-lb-capacity Rubicon Warn winch that includes 100 feet of Spydura synthetic rope. A second JPP Warn winch is installed at the rear of the Jeep Gladiator Top Dog concept.
The concept hood is accented with custom black Mopar hood latches that feature the Jeep Willys logo. A JPP snorkel helps direct cool air into the engine when off-road conditions threaten normal air inlets. A pair of JPP 5-inch, off-road, LED lights installed at the base of the A-pillars help illuminate the trail.
Body sides are protected by JPP rock rails, customized with welded 2-inch steel tubes, similar to the front grille guard design. Black door sill guards feature a raised Gladiator logo and help protect interior sills from scratches and scuffs.
The cabin of the Top Dog concept features a healthy dose of K-9 Blue accents. The black interior picks up the K-9 Blue interior bezels and tasteful K-9 Blue stitching on the black Katzkin leather seats, armrests, shifter boots, steering wheel, as well as the parking brake handle. Other notable accessories are the Mopar stainless-steel pedal covers with black rubber pads that add a bold flare and plenty of traction to the accelerator and brake pedals. Just below the pedals are Mopar all-weather floor mats installed throughout the cabin area.
