At the annual Easter Jeep Safari, Jeep reveals at least a handful of badass concept vehicles every year. Because of the Safari’s 50th anniversary and the Jeep brand’s 75th anniversary, this year’s event was even more over the top.
The Jeep Trailcat (with a 707 horsepower Hellcat engine!) is hands-down the coolest:
Called the “ultimate off-road machine” by Jeep, it has a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI Hellcat V-8 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.
… designers stretched the wheelbase an additional 12 inches. They chopped the windshield two inches for a sleeker look. It also has steel front and rear bumpers, 17-inch beadlock wheels and 39.5-inch BFGoodrich Krawler T/A KX tires, front and rear Dana 60 axles, Fox shocks, and of course, leather seat covers.
Here’s a taste of this year’s lineup:
