Jeep brought a pair of its Easter Safari concepts to the Detroit Auto Show and while none of them are producing production models, they’re pretty cool to look at.
The first concept we came across was the white and yellow Jeep Gladiator you see in the picture. It has been dubbed the Jeep Flatbill and was actually introduced in 2019. It aims to build on the Gladiator’s already impressive off-road prowess and also has the capacity to carry two dirt bikes in the bed.

Jeep made a plethora of modifications to bring the pickup to life. For example, it includes a vented carbon fiber hood, a shortened front bumper with a skid plate, distinctive fender flares and a tubular rear bumper. More prominent are Dynatrac Pro-Rack 60 front and rear axles, a custom four-inch Off-Road Evolution lift kit, enlarged rear bypass shocks, and 20-inch wheels wrapped in 40-inch all-terrain tires. It is also equipped with a removable canvas roof.
The second concept on display in Motor City is the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk 4xe Concept from April. It hasn’t had as many upgrades as the Gladiator, but sits on a set of distinctive 20-inch wheels with 33-inch BF Goodrich mud-terrain tires. The automaker also finished it in a striking shade of blue with bright blue accents, including both hooks and the front air intake surrounds. Matte black vinyl is also found on the hood.
