You didn’t think they were quite recently going to run with “Jeep Wrangler Pickup,” did you?
Alright, perhaps you did. Perhaps we did, as well. In any case, as indicated by data acquired by the aficionados at the Jeep Scrambler Forum, Scrambler is precisely what this energetically expected truck will be called. (Note that none of this is legitimate, yet in addition take note of that the Scrambler Forum’s sister site, the JL Wrangler Forums, has been right on the money with its forecasts up until this point.)
The Wrangler-based pickup’s name reviews the first CJ-8 Scrambler, a long-wheelbase variation of the C-7 worked from 1981 to 1986 (however that last year may have been abundance 1985 generation). It wasn’t intended to rival the hard-wearing work-arranged pickups accessible at the time; it was a “way of life” truck for dynamic people if there ever was one, and we don’t anticipate that the better one will be vastly different.
Similarly as with the CJ-7 it depended on, it got a removable best; in like manner, the new Scrambler gets two removable three-piece hardtop alternatives – one dark, one body-shading – and additionally a dark Sunrider delicate best.
Curiously, CAD documents got by the discussion demonstrate an edge with a length of 205 inches. That is 33 inches longer than a present four-entryway JK Wrangler’s casing, which makes it a generous truck, estimate shrewd. Not at all like the CJ-8, at that point, the up and coming Scrambler gets four entryways, in any event at the beginning.
Finish powertrain points of interest remain something of a puzzle, yet one motor has been affirmed up until this point: A 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 diesel. The transmission is not determined, but rather it’s associated with a Dana 12-jolt raise hub, an uprated update over the eight-jolt Dana 44 found on current Jeeps. In view of the rendering of the differential cover, it looks suspiciously like the greater Dana 60. What kind of towing and payload limit this new equipment yields stays to be seen.
Reports of a Jeep Wrangler pickup have been skimming around for a considerable length of time, yet this thing – the Scrambler – appears as though it’s at last event. We hope to see it before the finish of the year, likely at the Los Angeles car exhibition.
