Jeep Red Bare concept based on the Gladiator Rubicon
The fourth Easter Jeep Safari concept from Jeep and Mopar is a Gladiator creation in Firecracker Red Clearcoat – appropriately titled the Jeep Red Bare.
Gladiator is said to be a truck built to do it all, crafted for adventure with the ability to tackle any terrain. Loaded with cutting edge technology and Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) accessories it leaves nothing behind.
This Jeep Red Bare is loaded for with a variety of options and JPP accessories that will enable the enthusiast to travel the highways in style and traverse the outback with confidence.
Tough terrain calls for an equally tough powertrain. The Jeep Red Bare Gladiator Rubicon concept builds upon a long-standing heritage of hardworking trucks, paired with legendary Jeep 4×4 capability to deliver ultimate performance, fuel efficiency and driving range.
Powering the Red Bare concept is the turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine, rated at 260 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft. of torque, with engine stop-start (ESS) technology standard. To handle greater torque loads, the EcoDiesel V-6 connects to a TorqueFlite 8HP75 eight-speed automatic transmission, calibrated for low RPM shifts and to easily maneuver rigorous ground.
The Red Bare features Dana 44 front and rear heavy-duty axles that have been upgraded with 4.88 axle ratios for optimum performance.
The Red Bare Gladiator delivers an impressive 91:1 crawl ratio to tackle the toughest trails that Moab has.
The overall design inspiration behind the Red Bare concept builds on the passion and enthusiasm of Jeep SUV owners who spend countless hours creating customized looks and modifications to express the unique personality of their trusty off-roading vehicle.
This Gladiator Red Bare boasts a Fire Cracker Red exterior with custom Matte Black graphics and gold accents, along with the Mojave hood and cowl pieces, custom hood graphic and Matte Black signature seven-slot grille insert. Adding to its rugged appearance is a black factory soft-top and half doors for ultimate open-air freedom.
The interior incorporates custom Katzkin Black leather seats with red stitching and custom red flannel inserts. The instrument panel has been wrapped in the same red flannel material, giving the interior a bold, rustic finish. Rounding out the interior accents are body-color matched truck-bed lined floors with Mopar slush mats.
The Gladiator Red Bare concept also comes equipped with a JPP 2-inch lift kit, 17-inch Matte Black wheels with 37-inch BFG mud-terrain tires, cargo bed-mounted sport bar, JPP Sand Slider rock rails, bed cover and rack system, factory steel bumpers with a Warn winch and front bumper grille guard for added off-road protection.
