Here is the complete Easter Jeep Safari lineup for this year comprising 4 ICE cars and 3 EVs.

Opening the list is the Wagoneer Overland, a camping-ready version of the stock Wagoneer with a folding tent on the roof and beds replacing some seats inside. 35-inch wheels and an extra 40 mm (1.6 in) of ride height should improve its off-road performance.

Next up is a 1978 Cherokee 4xe restomod swapped to the part-electric Wrangler 4xe powertrain. A two-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine here is assisted by a pair of e-motors, and both the body and the suspension benefit from numerous improvements.

Then there is the Gladiator Sideburn, which comes loaded with a plethora of accessories largely focused on its cargo bed. There is a spare wheel holder, assorted storage pockets and niches, and a removable LED light bar on the roof. The protective grille at the front can be flipped down to make an improvised seat. The suspension gets a 50mm (2-inch) lift kit, but the ride height is higher still thanks to new 37-inch tires.

The so-called Scrambler 392 is designed with the five-door Wrangler at its base, but no longer has the stock rear end. Replacing it is a robust-looking truck bed with roll bars. The front doors were removed, and the suspension rebuilt on off-road components, turning the SUV into a buggy of sorts. The tires measure 40 inches across, and pressurized suspension elements add between 40 and 140 mm (1.6 and5.5 inches) of ride height when you need it.

Next up is the striking Wrangler Magneto 3.0, an electric car prototype that uses the latest Jeep motor tech capable of varying its output in the 285–650 horsepower range. Drivers will also appreciate being able to set up how aggressive the regenerative braking is. Another interesting feature comes in the form of a driving mode that simplifies hill descents when driving with one pedal.

The Wrangler Rubicon 4xe Departure is a diehard overlanding machine for the adventurers among us. It comes with tubular doors and a new spare wheel fastening system, but lacks a roof and a glass dome.

Rounding off the seven is a Wrangler Rubicon 4xe show car that demonstrates the manufacturer’s rich fit-and-finish options. The body is painted purple with a host of black accents. This off-roader also rides on air suspension, but makes do with slightly smaller 37-inch tires.
