Here we have our best look yet at the Jeep Scrambler, this time though we are looking at an actual production prototype (in two different trims, what we believe to be the JT Sport & JT Rubicon) complete with a JL interior as earlier prototypes still had JK components throughout including interior.
The return of the Jeep pickup has long been rumoured, but we are getting more up-close shots of what it will look like. It's expected to be based on a modified long-wheelbase Wrangler Unlimited platform, with similar front-end styling and traditional Jeep styling towards the rear. Expect a size similar to a Chevrolet Colorado or Toyota Tacoma, competing in the midsize pickup class and leaving plenty of breathing room for the Ram 1500.
Like the Wrangler, the pickup will adopt more aluminium panels to save weight, while still allowing for good hauling and off-road capabilities. The 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 and an 8-speed automatic is likely to be the mainstream powertrain, but a hybrid is rumoured to be added later. A diesel is still in the cards and is looking more and more likely.
We expect to see an official debut later this year, with an on-sale date in early 2019.
