MOAB, Utah — Every Easter Jeep Safari concept tells a story. No matter whether it is the Chief or the Magneto (now with 3 chapters), Jeep’s springtime dalliances are constantly accompanied by some diploma of worldbuilding. Even the the a lot more mundane between them have some reason to exist, no matter whether they foreshadow an imminent factory supplying or just scratch some designer’s itch. And which is why just one of this year’s concepts — taken at deal with benefit at the very least — was just simple unusual.
If you’re up to pace on this year’s roster of Easter Jeeps, you may recognize the “Wrangler Rubicon 4xe Concept.” I referred to as it the “****” in my summary, each mainly because that was a lot easier to variety and due to the fact strictly speaking, Jeep asked me to. Why? Due to the fact some frisky designers managed to sneak a bondage-themed idea beneath somebody’s radar just extensive adequate to demonstrate it to us in advance of time — and not a person 2nd far more. The tipping point, as it turns out, was the unofficial identify for the concept’s end — an just about anything-but-refined cross among Mopar paint code cousins Furious Fuchsia and Plum Crazy. Acquire “pink,” drop the “p” and blend vigorously with whips and chains. Don’t forget your safe and sound phrase.
Got it? Good, because we ended up formally requested not to repeat the name think about the previously mentioned chicanery very little more than compliance euphemisms. And aside from, even if “****” by itself was off-restrictions, definitely the principle would continue to be the very same? Following all, if Dodge can be Stellantis’ neck tattoo, it stands to motive that Jeep could get absent with becoming its nipple ring.
Evidently not. This is the interior, lacking the patterned leather and metal buckle inserts from the early press pics. Swapping seats is quick enough, and there usually are not way too lots of 4xes operating about with custom made magenta paint careers and performing air suspension units. The shiny latex change boot, pink air freshener and lipstick-punk trunk in the cargo spot all give this away as the similar Jeep, minus all the entertaining parts. This need to be the “in the streets” aspect of the old declaring the other 50 percent, regrettably, by no means materialized. What’s in the box, in fact?
But there was additional looking to be completed. Jeep staying Jeep, one can hardly ever rule out an Easter egg. And I failed to even have to dig all that deep.
I would like to imagine this is Jeep Structure Boss Mark Allen winking at all of us from the (unlocked) glovebox. Judging by the issue of the seal, someone wanted to make sure its taste aligned with the brand’s layout rules. That is dedication to the craft.
What’d I inform ya? Each individual Easter Jeep Safari concept tells a tale.
