Jeep Is Offering A Wrangler Pickup Truck in 2017
If you love the fun and off road adventure that a Jeep Wrangler offers, but need the bed that a pickup truck has, get ready for both in the same vehicle!
After months of rumors and speculation, it’s official! Fiat-Chrysler has confirmed a new Jeep Wrangler pickup truck is coming.
The new Scrambler as it is named, should be released by 2017. Specifications are still sparse, but according to Love 4×4, consumers can probably expect a 3.6 liter V6 standard engine and the heavy-duty off-road suspension system that the Wrangler is known for.
Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles, first said that the next generation of the Wrangler will be all aluminum. However, Marchionne later confirmed that the Scrambler won’t be completely made out of the material. The chassis is said to be traditional and fitted with aluminum panels. According to Cars in Trend, the vehicle will also have traditional solid axles and the power-plants are expected to be the current.
In an interview with The Detroit News, Marchionne stated that the pickup will be produced in Toledo, Ohio alongside the next-generation Wrangler.
Jeep fans have been waiting a long time for a pickup. The company hasn’t produced a pickup truck since 1992.
