The highly anticipated Jeep® pickup truck now has a name. Supposedly, it’s called the Jeep Scrambler. Eager folks have to wait just one more year until the truck’s official release, as its showroom debut is scheduled for April 2019. The vehicle will be available in dealerships as a 2020 model. Under the original release date, the Jeep Scrambler was initially slated for an early to mid-2017 debut.
In the meantime, we have much to speculate, thanks to new gallery images submitted in a Jeep forum. You can go to Auto Blog to see the rather realistic rendering.
The Jeep pickup is modeled after the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. More specifically, it has adopted design cues from the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL-generation, which just made its debut in November 2017. In the renderings, the truck’s headlamps, wheels, and fascia are all borrowed from the standard Jeep Wrangler.
There are some notable highlights regarding the Jeep Scrambler. For one, it’s rumored to be three-feet longer than the current Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. It will also have a removable soft-top. This means we’re looking at a convertible pickup, which is an interesting concept. The last pickup under the FCA US LLC banner to feature a removable top was the 1991 Dodge Dakota.
Under the hood of the Jeep Scrambler will be a V6 turbo-diesel engine. This machine is also expected to be used in future iterations of the Jeep Wrangler.
