It’s been a sad year for the auto industry. If manufacturing plants temporarily shutting down wasn’t bad enough from a financial standpoint, but the loss of the majority of auto shows was a real kick in the pants. No one got to show off all the good stuff they’ve been working on – so many concepts and technology and accessories – never to be seen, at least in 2020. Even the Moab Easter Jeep Safari got cancelled. It had to, social distancing and all. Still, Jeep is known for showing up with new Jeep concepts every year, some of which occasionally make it into the lineup. Here’s hoping the newest addition makes it in too.
All but Confirmed
There are two new Jeep Gladiator trims coming to the lineup, that much we know 99-percent for sure. Based on a leaked image from the Jeep Gladiator Forum, the image posted is said to be a photograph of a bulletin board in a Jeep dealer, so it’s all but confirmed by Jeep that these trims are officially coming to the lineup. That being said, it’s very likely that we’ll be seeing a Jeep Gladiator Willys and a Jeep Gladiator 80th Anniversary Edition very soon.
The Jeep Gladiator Willys may make some reminiscent of the Jeep Wagoneer, but the two are far from being anything alike. Based on the Gladiator Sport trim, the Willy trim comes with additional off-road glory with Rubicon cab Rock Rails, a Trac-lok limited-slip differential, and 17-inch black wheels wrapped up in mud-terrain tires. Equipped with the Technology and Convenience Groups, consumers may find some new safety features available, including automatic parking system, automatic high beam headlights, automatic wipers, lane departure warning, traffic-adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.
The 80th Anniversary Edition is a little special something and more about style. Riding on 18-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, the 80th Anniversary Edition is also based on the Sport trim, so don’t expect a whole lot of bells and whistles. A premium audio system with an 8.4-inch touchscreen and remote start are as good as it gets. Having optional remote proximity keyless entry is nice plus for those who don’t care to fumble with their keys.
Far Out Man!
Yes, this new concept from Jeep is definitely far out, dubbed the Farout concept for the Jeep Gladiator. They really missed an opportunity naming it FarOut, but I digress, this concept is pretty amazing. If anyone wanted to sign up for #VanLife, the time is now with the Jeep Farout concept. Up front, the cab where the driver and passengers sit has some upscale touches with dark smoke blue leather, orange stitching, and plaid flannel seat inserts, but in back it’s a whole new world.
The Jeep Gladiator truck bed gets a large truck cap on it to add some walls, but the top of the cap has been removed and replaced with a neatly contained, customized deployable roof-top tent. Taking the width of the Gladiator truck bed in mind, the tent is 16-feet long and 7.5-feet high – all-in-all that’s enough space for four people to sleep, amongst other things – no seriously, this thing is a built-in cabin. Once inside, consumers are welcomed by wood-lined interior features soft ambient lighting, a fully functional refrigerator and stove, hanging storage racks, built-in seats, and table space. It’s definitely starting to feel a lot more like glamping than camping, but who really minds?
Also built for adventure, the Jeep Farout concept comes equipped with rear tailgate tow hooks, springs, shocks, a Jeep Performance Parts two-inch lift kit, 17-inch matte charcoal rims, 37-inch mud-terrain tires, a modified Gladiator Rubicon steel bumper equipped with a 12,000-lb. Warn winch, custom front and rear rock rails, and FOX™ performance shocks. Able to haul plenty of gear, if looking to save space in your new cabin, there is also an integrated roof-rack system for packing additional gear. This is really the best way to camp.
