It’s that time of year again where Jeep vehicles come together and collectively drop jaws. Jeep is on its way to Moab, Utah, for its 56th annual Easter Jeep Safari (April 9th-17th, 2022). Hundreds of thousands of Jeep devotees will come together for the world’s largest off-road convention. The Jeep Safari’s host is the Moab’s Red Rock 4-Wheelers club.
Of course, Jeep never disappoints but the automaker and Jeep Performance Parts (JPP) is hard at work. The automaker and JPP work vigorously to create several memorable Jeep concept vehicles that turn an excellent off-roader into a phenomenal off-roader. The only obstacle in the way of a successful Safari is its renowned 4×4 capability.
Sneak previews of the Easter Jeep Safari lineup reveal the fire lineup headed to Utah. The Jeep and JPP sketches revealed a peek at two new concept vehicles. One of the concept vehicles included an electrified Jeep 4xe SUV. The 4xe SUV is on the minds and hearts of many Jeep enthusiasts, and it’s easy to see why since the SUV clobbers the most rugged terrains. Furthermore, the new 4xe gives Jeep another leg to stand on as the automaker builds on the vision of Zero Emission Freedom.
The History of the Easter Jeep Safari
The Moab Chamber of Commerce coordinated the first Jeep convention in 1967. The idea behind the gathering was to attract more visitors to the Moab area. Chamber leaders actively led the tour, and participants hiked through the Behind the Rocks Trail, the only trail available at the time. The first event was free, and participants received free ice cream delivered by airplanes.
By 1982, the convention grew, and so did the rules and regulations. In addition, the event required new permits and documentation, so Moab passed the responsibilities to Red Rock 4 Wheelers. As a result, Red Rock successfully expanded beyond the Behind the Rocks Trail and extended the meeting days.
Since Red Rock 4 Wheelers took over, the event caters to 1,000 people worldwide. What was once a one-day event is now an eleven-day event with over 125 trail options and 2000 vehicles. Even though the Easter Jeep Safari has evolved tremendously since 1967, Jeep enthusiasts rally together for “Big Saturday.” On “Big Saturday,” the vehicles line up on Main Street to pay homage to the Moab Chamber of Commerce.
