Jeep on Thursday unveiled several incredible new concepts in celebration of the 50th Annual Easter Jeep Safari. That includes an incredible Jeep Trailcat – pictured first in the gallery above – which packs a 707-horsepower Hellcat engine. It’s built for everything from climbing over boulders to blazing through the desert sand.

As Tim the Tool Man Taylor once said: “ough, ough, ough!” Those are grunting noises, by the way.

But that’s not all. There are seven concepts in total, including the Jeep Crew Chief, the Jeep Shortcut, the Jeep Renegade Commander, the Jeep Comanche, the Jeep FC 150 and the Jeep Trailstorm. Each is built with a specific task in mind – the Comanche is “off-road ready with practical utility,” while the shortcut is “inspired by the classic CJ-5 to handle tight, winding trails. Finally, the Crew Chief 715 is a “salute to the legendary Jeep military service vehicles.”

“Every year, the Jeep team looks forward to pushing the limits with new, exciting and capable concept vehicles for our most loyal enthusiasts at the Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, where we receive a tremendous amount of valuable feedback,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global. “This year is extra special, as together with our biggest fans, we celebrate Jeep’s 75th anniversary, as well as the 50th running of the Jeep Safari. We’re delighted to share seven of the most capable and eye-catching concept Jeep vehicles we’ve ever created at this year’s historic event.”

Eye-catching indeed. Just take a look through some of the concepts in the gallery above. Want to know more about each one? Hit the source for Fiat Chrysler’s individual walkthroughs.
