DETROIT — One of the best things about the Jeep brand throughout its history is the blank canvas it provides for enthusiasts to personalize their vehicles. The same holds true for engineers and designers working on Jeeps.
Designers at Fiat Chrysler and its corporate predecessors have built a series of specialized Jeep concept vehicles to take to the annual Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, starting in 2002. In addition, over its history, Jeep has shown a number of high concepts at auto shows to measure consumer acceptance of upcoming design ideas.
The concept vehicles often have been wild interpretations of Jeep’s past, harkening back to the brand’s both civilian and military roots.
Here are eight of the top concept vehicles that Jeep has shown through the years.
