Jeep has unveiled its latest concept, the Jeep Gladiator Farout concept, which has been designed to be “a true overlanding vehicle.” It was supposed to debut back in April at the Moab Easter Jeep Safari, but the coronavirus killed those plans.
The Gladiator Farout concept features a deployable 16-foot-long by 7.5-foot-tall roof-top tent that Jeep says can sleep up to four. The interior of the Gladiator Farout is wood-lined with soft ambient lighting. It also features a fully functional refrigerator and stove, plus hanging storage racks, built-in seats and table space.
The seats also have “outdoorsy fashion” since they are wrapped in dark smoke blue leather with orange stitching and plaid flannel seat inserts.
On the outside the Farout is painted in a new “Earl” body color with chartreuse accents on the hood, rear tailgate tow hooks, springs, badging and shocks. It also has a 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. Lastly there’s an integrated roof-rack system to haul all your gear.
Under the hood the Farout is powered by the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6.
“Building on the popularity of last year’s Gladiator Wayout concept, and as overlanding continues to grow in popularity, this year’s Farout concept is another opportunity to gather feedback from our passionate customer base,” stated Jim Morrison, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA North America.
