The Wrangler-based Pickup Truck
No car quite captures America’s daring character and sense of adventure like the Jeep® Wrangler. This long-time favorite of automotive enthusiasts has been around since 1986, featuring a design inspired by the classic WWII-era Jeep®. For those of you who have been following all things Jeep®, you know that Jeep® announced about a year ago that they had a new vehicle in the works: a Wrangler-based pickup truck.
This April, we have the much-anticipated spy shots of the new Jeep® pickup. Beneath its covered exterior we can see the stately, distinctive Wrangler silhouette extend back to include a pickup bed. The bold and angular lines of the truck make it like no other model on the road. From these shots, it’s clear that the vehicle will offer a crew cab body configuration alongside a decent-sized bed. Our best guess is that this Wrangler-based pickup will be released for the 2019 model year, but there’s no official name for it yet. Some say that it will be named the Scrambler, while others believe it will carry the name of a previous Jeep® pickup, such as the Gladiator or original Willys Jeep® Truck.
The pickup will also most likely feature a similar interior as the Jeep® Wrangler, which means that it will have an adventurous and durable interior with state-of-the-art smartphone connectivity and entertainment technology. Upgraded powertrain options may be available as well, such as a diesel option with incredible power and capability.
Here at Gary Wood CDJR, we can’t wait until this Jeep® Wrangler Pickup model arrives on our dealership lot.
