After few decades of brake, company will finally reintroduce a pickup version that is based on its most popular nameplate Wrangler. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup will come as completely new model. Many years ago, there was a similar model that used name Scrambler. Since then, we didn’t see a pickup truck in Jeep’s lineup. However, there were few concepts presented, such as Gladiator which came in 2005. But none of them came into production. So, this will be a comeback of these types of vehicles, when it comes to popular SUV manufacturer. New model will be heavily based on the newest Wrangler, sharing platform and most of the parts. It should come next year as 2018 Wrangler Pickup.

It will come heavily based on the one of the most-recognizable models in car industry. Those two models will share platform, and many other characteristics. When it comes to styling, we already mentioned that the upcoming Wrangler is coming without radical changes. So, 2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup will have the similar, already quite familiar look. This might be one of the trumps for new pickup truck. When it comes to interior, we expect that the both models will feature the same cabin. It is still unknown in which body styles will new model all come, but some reports suggest that double cab configuration will probably be the only in offer. However, we won’t write of other variants neither.

This engine is well-known and it is used for various models from Chrysler. It will be available both with automatic and manual transmission. We also expect to see some smaller engine in offer. This should be a 2.0 liter turbo inline-four, also a familiar powertrain. Finally, we expect to see a diesel engine in offer also.
