Respecting the Past and Embracing the Future.
Jeep® releases '41 Concept featuring a color-matched set of our Analog HD wheels
Easter Jeep Safari is probably one of the most anticipated “Jeep Love” events of the year. Thousands of off-roading enthusiasts from all over the country gather together to–well, do what they love. It’s about a week long event that includes trails, exhibits, good company and most importantly, Jeep® is there to remind us all what they have to offer. This year was no different. 5 one-of-a-kind concepts were revealed at Easter Jeep Safari 2022 by Jeep® with one of them being the ‘41 Concept – a throwback and nod to their long-standing heritage with the military.
Spotlighting the classic Wrangler Willy, Jeep® created a nod to their past while embracing today's electric-vehicle technology. Built on Jeep®’s 4xe plug-in hybrid powertrain that is capable of an estimated 49mpg – this platform is Jeep®’s most technically advanced and eco-friendly Wrangler ever. Jeep® boasts of a combination of two electric motors, a high-voltage battery pack, a high-tech 2.0 liter turbocharged I-4 engine and robust TorqueFlight eight speed automatic transmission that gives a truly unique experience on and off the road. Like we said, embracing today’s electric car technology.
The exterior is where you get that 1941 Classic Jeep® Willy look applied to a modern day Jeep® Wrangler that we all know and love. Honorably decorated in D.R.A.B ‘41 Matte Green with a tan soft-top, giving it that classic military Willy look our military used decades ago. Lifted on a JPP 2-inch lift and accompanied by 35” mud-terrain tires with our Fifteen52 Analog HD design in 17x8.5 5x127 ET0, custom matched to the D.R.A.B ‘41 Green colorway. A custom Willy’s retro graphic is applied to the fender of the car to finish off the throwback look. Interior wise, it also offers canvas-covered digital camo inserts and also features a retro shifter with a customized shifter cap from the Jeep Graphic Studio.
This production-ready design is definitely something we would love to see optioned out at dealerships. It's a great example of a Jeep®'s history merged into 80 years of technological advancement and we're here for it.
