If you have ever dreamed of combining the off-road abilities of a Jeep® Wrangler with the versatility of a pickup, your dream is coming true. Fiat Chrysler is currently working on a Jeep® Wranger-based pickup and it isn’t too far off.
At a recent meeting, dealers learned that the Wrangler Pickup release date should be in April of 2019—less than a year from now! It scheduled to go into production in the fourth quarter of this year and we could possibly get the first glimpse of it at a late 2018 auto show, like the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
FCA hasn’t officially released this new pickup’s name, but many have guessed that it might be called the Scrambler, like a previous pickup version produced in the 1980s. We do know it will be based on the new four-door model of the Wrangler, but with an added bed on the back, making it a bit longer than any Wrangler model today.
Can you imagine how much fun this Wrangler Pickup is going to be? You will be able to bring along the whole crew and all of your gear at the same time. This will make it even easier to tackle your rugged outdoor adventures. Here at Flagler CDJR, we can’t wait until this Wrangler-based pickup truck arrives on our lot.
The 2018 Jeep® Wrangler has been long awaited, but enthusiasts won’t have to wait much longer. The upcoming model is set to make its official debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. While that’s still a little ways off, the upcoming Wrangler has seen some of its specifications leaked.
Excited off-road enthusiasts did some digging and found quite a few new features that will come in the 2018 Wrangler. Powertrain changes and full-time four-wheel drive is set to make the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler a true off-road monster.
Drivers will have three engine choices in the upcoming Wrangler SUV. A 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 engine will join the lineup. The current 3.6-liter V6 engine will continue to be available as well. A six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmission will be available as well.
Notably, at least one version of the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler will come with standard full-time four-wheel drive. This will be the first time the renowned off-road SUV will offer such a feature.
The 2018 Jeep® Wrangler will be available with 10 packages, making it one of the most customizable off-road SUVs on the road. On top of that, drivers can also select a power-folding soft-top roof.
We here at Flagler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram can’t wait to see the 2018 Jeep® Wrangler in all of its off-roading glory!
