Dubbed the Farout, the unique truck uses the company’s EcoDiesel 3.0-liter V6 engine that can push out 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque, all the while maintaining gas efficiency at 28 miles per gallon. The exterior is finished in a new “Earl” paint color perfect for the outdoors, paired with olive green accents running along the hood, rear tailgate, tow hooks, springs, badging, and shocks. Of course, it’s kitted with a range of premium components as well, including a Jeep Performance Parts two-inch lift kit, a modified Gladiator Rubicon steel bumper carrying a 12,000-pound Warn winch, 37-inch mud-terrain tires with 17-inch matte charcoal rims, FOX performance shocks, and custom front and rear rock rails. The interior is also fully furnished, featuring a customized rooftop tent, a stove, a refrigerator, hanging racks, a table, and built-in seating.
“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,” said Jeep head Jim Morrison during the car’s announcement. “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.”
