Jeep Reveals Yet Another Cryptic Safari Teaser

Teaser / 8 Comments

If only there were some way to know what kind of car it is...

Apparently, the art of subtlety is lost on Jeep. Look at the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392, an off-roader about as subtle as tossing a V8-shaped brick through a window. Mind you, we fully support this ahead of the brand's inevitable electric transition. As is tradition, another similarly subtle teaser has been dropped ahead of the Jeep Safari event this year.

The image (below) shows the front of a Wrangler with the doors off. Or a Gladiator with the doors off. We're not sure. According to Jeep, it could be both, with the brand asking "Ever wonder what blending two mighty off-roaders like the Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator might look like?"

That's not exactly helpful as the Wrangler and Gladiator are already pretty similar cars. Take the elements from one and mix it with the other, and you're going to end up with the same thing. Jeep, apparently fond of rhetorical questions, also asks "What if a truck dared to be more like an SUV to increase its departure angle?" Well, Jeep, that would be a Gladiator, wouldn't it? Two can play the rhetorical question game.

It's clear that whatever this concept maybe is going to be some sort of hopped-up Wrangler or Gladiator. More likely, it's going to be both. Jeep has teased photos of the vehicle before, twice in fact. This points to more than one vehicle. Each of the images appears to show a different vehicle.

One or two will be Rubicon concepts of some kind, and the final one looks to be based on the Cherokee or Grand Cherokee.

If you ask us, we're betting on another Jeep special edition with some wild modifications. Perhaps we're finally getting that Hellcat Jeep Wrangler everyone has been pining after. Frankly, after time spent in the Wrangler 392, we're not sure how much more power the Wrangler needs. At least there'll be another cryptic teaser ahead of the event to analyze.
