FaroutFarout, a new Jeep Gladiator concept vehicle for 2021, is an overlander built for four, thanks to the addition of an AT Overland Equipment Habitat truck topper. At 16-feet long and 7.5-feet tall, the pop top fully deployed takes about three minutes to set up.

FaroutThe standard features of the 340-lb. Habitat truck topper are a cantilevered, insulated sleeping platform with carpeted walls and built-in mattresses, a built-in awning to cover the entrance, and aluminum composite construction.

Farout

The t0pper is normally clear-coated aluminum, with an all-season Nemo Equipment tent that requires no additional rainfly, they start at $10,000, and they are all built to order. Jeep went further with their build, adding a wood-lined interior, ambient lighting, a refrigerator, and stove, along with hanging storage racks, built-in seats, and a table.

Inside the cab, the outdoor theme continues with what’s described as dark smoke blue leather with orange stitching, and plaid flannel seat inserts.

Farout

On the outside, Farout is coated in Earl, which we assume is short for Earl Gray, if you’re into teas, with chartreuse accents, chartreuse being that greenish-yellow liqueur made from brandy and herbs. A Jeep Performance Products two-inch lift kit, Fox shocks, Fifteen52 wheels, Falken Wildpeak 37-inch mud-terrain tires, a Gladiator Rubicon bumper modified to accommodate a 12,000-lb. Warn winch, IPF driving lights, and custom rock rails. There’s also a roof rack to haul more gear that won’t otherwise fit inside.

Farout

Farout isn’t in reference to some CBD product, but instead to the extended range provided by the turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine, in excess of 425 miles. Available in the Wrangler and Gladiator, the EcoDiesel is rated at 260 HP and 442 lb.-ft. of torque. The added torque, horsepower, and fuel economy, 28 MPG highway, comes with minimal noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) levels.

While there’s no electric hot dog grill aboard this rig like there is on another of the Jeep concept vehicles, I don’t think I’d complain if Jeep was to loan me the Farout for an extended overland test.

      So what do you think? 40K Jeep or 27K UAZ? After all, original UAZ was inspired by Jeep. I believe though that original UAZ was GAZ first. Then they transferred production to UAZ.
      The engine however may be the biggest anchor here that will pull you away. 150HP… really? And it is not diesel

      And interestingly, the matching PU truck will be perfect competition to Gladiator. Similar everything but the power and convertibility.
