Maybe GMC won't even try to compete against the Wrangler and its pickup variant. According to Automotive News, GMC wants to come out with something to compete against the Compass and Renegade, but they won't even try to go against the Wrangler. The same may apply to pickups as well. http://www.autonews.com/article/2017...mall-crossover

this might sound a bit too kumbaya but I like to think both trucks will stand apart in their own way and if someone who owns a Silverado wanted to switch it would most likely be a Ford or RAM, but even that's rare

the truth about cars has their own take on whose sales the Scrambler will be cannibalizing and it seems like RAM 1500 sales will be the hardest hit, or so they assume.

They do make one good point, "the real reason there’s no Jeep pickup is this: A Jeep and a pickup are the same thing." With a two door adn unlimited that can be converted into a UTE pickup, Jeep probably saw no need to release one until now and that it's coming, customers will be poached.

Nah, Jeep fans are willing to wait and maybe just grab a Wrangler JL in the meantime. Those things can tow pretty well, more so if you decide to get the Unlimited, then just get a pickup to join it in your stable.

That was only the case with the JK8 hence why we're seeing the Scrambler fit so well into the truck segment that the 1500's and F150 sits in. In a way you can say this is the cheaper Brute we always wanted compared to what we had ever before. Brutes are expensive.

Ah, ye olde Brute. Even used Brutes cost an arm and a leg and with the release of the Scrambler people will have more options and it'll bring the Brute prices down. A wind for Jeep pickup buyers but not necessarily private sellers.

The cost of one is so high because of the laundry list of mods made to them by previous owners and they would want to recoup that cost, so prices won't drop too much if at all, even if I think a unlimited pickup for six digits is insane.

Towing and gross combined weight would put it in competition with other mid-size pickups. We can see that towing or payload isn't really the Scrambler's priority so we can expect to see it come with a lot of off-road features to make up for it.

Well, it can only mean that our vehicle will be put in an off-road segment oft the car market, where competition is even tougher. Thus, wrangler pickup is taking fire from both sides towing pickups and off-roaders.
