American manufacturer, Jeep, has recently unveiled the badass Gladiator Overlander “Farout” concept which can be considered to be a new take on what a bug-out vehicle can be. Equipped with Jeep’s 3.0-litre V-6 EcoDiesel engine, a rooftop tent, and a fully functional refrigerator and stove.
“Surely this will make you re-plan whatever overlander plans you had in mind.”
Jeep’s EcoDiesel, which will be offered in the Gladiator for the first time on the 2021 model, is also said to produce 260 horsepower with 442 lb-ft of torque. Even though at the current time there isn’t an EPA estimate for the Gladiator’s range when equipped with the diesel engine, the Wrangler with that same engine returns 538 miles of range.
The custom-built rooftop tent on the Farout concept is big enough to sleep up to four people. The interior of the vehicle has also been upgraded for multi-day adventures, featuring wood trim, the aforementioned fridge, stove, a seating area, and table space.
To make the concept more off-road capable, Jeep added 37-inch mud tires wrapped around 17-inch wheels, a 2.0-inch lift from Jeep Performance Parts, and a modified bumper equipped with a winch rated to 12,000 pounds. Custom rock rails run the front and rear of the truck, and the shocks are upgraded to Fox performance suspension. Hence, at the end of the day, the only other thing that we could ask for would be for this vehicle to actually be produced.
