Jeep debuts a new concept

The Gladiator Farout concept is the new overlanding vehicle introduced by Jeep. The car was initially scheduled to make its debut at the April 2020 Moab Easter Jeep Safari. It draws on the success of the 2019 Moab Easter Jeep Safari idea as a Jeep Wayout.

The Farout comes with a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine which joins the 2021 model year Gladiator lineup and is rated at 260 hp and 442 lb.-ft. Standard Engine Stop Start Torque (ESS) technology. The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine is available on models such as Gladiator Sport, Overland and Rubicon and produces 28 mpg highway.

According to Jim Morrison, head of the brand in Norh America "Although we didn’t get to celebrate in Moab this year with our latest round of concept vehicles, we’re pleased to introduce the Jeep Farout concept today as a vehicle that blends Gladiator EcoDiesel’s fuel efficiency with an area of features fans of overlanding will love”.

The spacious recreational apartment, 16-foot wide and 7.5-foot-tall, opens and retracts in a matter of seconds. When it is unpacked it sleeps up to four comfortably. A conveniently enclosed, personalized deployable roof-top tent is the key aspect of this completely functioning creation. This go-anywhere, Jeep idea does-anything brings off-road adventure to the next level. The Jeep Farout model, an upgrade to last year's Jeep Wayout design, benefits from Gladiator's class-leading 4×4 payload and the long-range fuel economy of the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engine to move much farther off the beaten road.

The dry, welcoming wood-lined interior of Farout features soft ambient lighting, a completely working fridge and stove, plus hanging storage racks, built-in chairs and table area. Featuring dark smoke blue fabric, black stitching and plaid flannel seat covers, urban fashion and style are enjoyed inside the tailored cab of the Farout. The cold, monochromatic appearance and feel of a traditional overlanding vehicle is long gone.
