JEEP RESCUE – “Jeep’s Biggest Concept Ever”


It’s unclear to us exactly what marketing angle Jeep is taking for the “Rescue”, but it sure looks cool and fun.

JeepRescue Here is how Jeep touts it: “Designed for the most extreme situations and unforgiving conditions, the Jeep® Rescue concept is not only the ultimate type of search and rescue vehicle – it’s the ultimate execution of a Jeep off-road vehicle.”


Presumably, it was created to compete against a couple of the other mega SUV’s out there, and we’re sure to hear the reviews and testimonials comparing them. Our first impression was a “thumbs up” on its exterior and interior looks, and the specs show that it is loaded with equipment prepared to take on the roughest conditions.

Jeep Rescue Interior

Powered by a Cummins Diesel and featuring seating for five, the Jeep Rescue’s primary mission is rescue capability, and its list of rescue and safety equipment is impressive:

* AC electric power (10 kW) generation in the field
* Exterior perimeter lighting
* Under- chassis, point-of-view cameras for avoiding danger in its path
* 3-D topographical mapping software and topographical navigation system
* Passive, infrared (thermal) cameras for search and rescue
* Retractable 4-point harnesses for vehicle occupants
* White LEV lighting for long distance visual search and reduced power use
* Folding seats in rear compartment of vehicle
* Remote control winch – front and back
* Satellite telephone; VHF radio, digital video recorder with satellite transmission capability

We’re interested in your thoughts and impressions.  Would you get one?

  1. Man, that sounds more like tank features. Heck yes I’d buy one. Someone ought to call James Bond, I bet he’d be interested too. It might be a little out of my price range, but I bet I can afford to take if for a test drive and check out all of those features.

  2. I belong to a volunteer rescue squad that works a 3 county area in Missouri. If plans work out like we hope, we are buying a Jeep Rescue. It has features that we will use frequently. I expect there will be several rescue squads across the US who will be doing the same. I can hardly wait to get behind that wheel.

  3. I would love to have this but I don’t know that I would use all of the features. I guess you could tell yourself you just want to be prepared. I can’t think of too many things that could happen that this Jeep wouldn’t be able to handle. I didn’t think I liked that color, but after looking at it for a couple of minutes, it grew on me.

  4. I laughed out loud at Mike’s comment about James Bond. That’s exactly what went through my mind when I finished reading the list of features. The little boy in me is yelling yeah, buy it! I probably won’t, but I will take it for a test drive and check out a few of those features.

  5. I want it. I figure I could drive around looking for reasons to show off all of those features. I’m just a kid at heart and I love the ‘big toys’ I can get now.
