We now know with certainty that FCA’s rugged Jeep brand is indeed working on a Wrangler-like pickup truck, expected to be called the “Jeep Scrambler”. Reportedly, FCA last month even told members of its dealer network that the new truck would hit dealerships in April of 2019, and a few prototypes have been spied testing the new truck’s Ram-like suspension here and there.
Now, someone over at JeepScramblerForum.com has taken the liberty of rendering the future Jeep Scrambler pickup truck, using the all-new JL Wrangler as a starting point. The pickup is depicted in a series of classic Wrangler colors – Sarge Green, Hella Yella, Sting-Gray, and Firecracker Red – both with and without a rugged push bar and LED off-road lamps mounted up front.
Of course, we have no way of truly knowing how accurate these renderings might be; every prototype spied up until now has been pretty heavily obscured.
The future Jeep Scrambler pickup will fit into the mid-size truck segment, making it a uniquely outdoorsy future entrant in a market currently represented by the likes of the Chevrolet Colorado/GMC Canyon, Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, and soon, the new North American Ford Ranger. The name “Scrambler” hearkens back to a long-wheelbase, pickup-style version of the CJ-7, dubbed the CJ-8, and nicknamed “Scrambler” after an appearance package that many of the trucks bore.
