Jeep Renegade concept rendering – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you're a Jeep fan, than it's time to get excited ,because Easter is almost here. Why Easter? Eggs and candy! Because it signals the return of Jeep's Moab Easter Safari. This event is often a showcase for new products and concept vehicles from Chrysler's off-road brand.

In the past, Jeep has used the Moab Easter Safari to show off concept vehicles like the Lower Forty, Wrangler J7 and Trail Boss, Patriot Extreme and even the "Moparized" Ram Power Wagon. This time around, for the 45th annual Safari event, Jeep is feature two new vehicles that invoke visions of an older period in Jeep's history: the Jeep Renegade and the Jeep "Porkchop."

These are just two of the six vehicles that Jeep is bringing to Moab. The Easter Safari runs from April 16 through the 24.

      This kinda wears on me. Let's show off vehicles that we don't plan to build.

      As far as engine options---I'd rather have a diesel than the hemi----just sayin'.

      I'd be nice if Jeep would actually have the balls to build one of their concepts.

        oh, they make their concept vehicles (see: Commander, Compass) it's just that the concepts they choose to actually produce suck

      The black Renegade is HOT.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It would be even cooler if it was offered in a V8 like the CJ-7 renegade was....

      Looks like I'm going to need a bigger basket.

      Sweet, maybe they will unveil another pickup truck that everyone loves but they won't build!!!

      I really like the look of that Renegade. I stayed away from Wranglers for a long time because I want 4 doors, but I think my next vehicle will be a Wrangler.

      Cool Concept Drawing. I like it.

      Would love to have a Wrangler some day.

      Well rumor has it AEV put in a Hemi into a JK for Michael Manley - Jeeps current CEO for a test vehicle.

      I would not be surprised if this shows up along with more than a couple jeeps with the new pentastar v6.

      I would love a hemi JK if it came as a factory offering :)

      I just wish they would have released the lower 40 concept as a factory option package!

        @Swift: looks like it's just a stylized rendering of the AEV heat reduction hood (note the AEV vents on the front sides of the hood). The HEMI doesn't require a bulged hood anyway.

        All that said, I wouldn't be surprised to see a HEMI under the JK Renegade's hood when they show it off at EJS.

        That hood bulge looks suspiciously like it's hiding the rumored Hemi!
