The Jeep Safari Concept At Jeep Safari: What Do You Like On This Lighter, Wide Open JK?Posted in Moab Experience: 2017 on April 17, 2017
When the head of Jeep Design says that a concept vehicle is asking a lot of questions of the viewers it seems to us that the concept may have many hints to future vehicles. Mark Allen, when revealing the Jeep Safari concept vehicle told the media that he was interested in feedback on it, and that tells us it’s chocked full of ideas that may be on a future vehicle.
The Safari concept was made to allow back seat Wrangler Unlimited passengers much more visibility. The top is translucent, much like those big UPS trucks, giving passengers outdoor daytime lighting without the glaring sun of a clear sunroof. The back seats have a slight turn towards the windows so kids can enjoy the view and not just spend their ride staring at a cell phone. The doors are clear plastic from top to bottom and the B-pillar is replaced with just a rollcage tube to give the back seat occupants more visibility.
We mentioned before that the Safari has a unique front grille unlike other JK jeeps and we also really like the bumpers that just feel lighter and more open. The Jeep has a billet roof rack, but it feels just as nimble and airy as the rest of the vehicle. Of course the white paint and day-glow paint only adds to the look and feel. There is even a drone on the roof that back seat passengers can fly allowing them to scan the surroundings and maybe even spot the driver over obstacles all from the back seat of the vehicle.
The Safari concept is high tech, modern looking, and has unique features that we would love to see in future wrangler offerings. So we’ll forward the question on to you, love it or hate it?
