It looks like this year’s Easter Jeep Safari is really going to happen, and you know what that means: cool new Jeep concepts. The company has released renderings of two concepts that will be released, one of which is a Jeep Wrangler with an interesting name: Magneto.
The Jeep Magneto – or maybe Jeep Wrangler Magneto, since the Magneto name is in the same spot on the hood as “Rubicon” or “Mojave” – is the model shown above. The SUV has been zoomed in far, so it’s hard to see what’s changed. We expect it to be the electric Wrangler that Jeep hinted at before, given its electricity-related name. It features the large hood scoop on the Gladiator Mojave and Wrangler 392. It also appears that there are LED accents in the grille that align with the headlights and side marker lights.
The other concept SUV does not show any name, but the rendering shows more of the vehicle. It’s clearly based on the Wrangler two-door, and it has a wide variety of off-road upgrades. At the front is an off-road bumper with winch, and the hood looks like a custom piece with a hefty power bulge. Giant tires have been fitted to beadlock wheels and some custom fender flares have been added for extra clearance. There are area lights near the windshield, and it appears the Wrangler is outfitted with the newly available half-doors. We also hope the interior has the plaid pattern in the background of the display.
The Easter Jeep Safari kicks off on March 27, so we should see the concepts revealed around that time. There may be more than these two Wrangler concepts, which will also be shown.
Update: Updated text to reflect the likelihood that the Magneto will be an Electric Wrangler.
