Jeep Wrangler Pickup Design Hints Hidden In Concepts



Jeep has recently showed off seven concept vehicles at the annual Easter Safari Event and some of them may contain hints as to what the new Wrangler Pickup and Grand Wagoneer could look like.

We already know the Wrangler Pickup has been confirmed for production but we didn’t know much else, until now. Mark Allen, head of Jeep design, told Outside Online about these hidden hints:

“We’ve hidden some hints about what’s going on behind the scenes, right in front of you. We’re finally going to get to do a pickup truck. I can’t explain too much, but there may be things you see on the Crew Chief that you might see on that truck.”



Looking at the Crew Chief, we could probably write off the slanted nose for a more modern nose like the ones on the outgoing Jeep Wrangler. Don’t expect to see the 40 inch military-style tires, 20 inch beadlock wheels, and stamped tailgate logo either. Other than that, the boxy design is reminiscent of the Wrangler bodyline and something similar could make it to production along with the 6 foot bed and 3.6L Pentastar V6.

“This is the fourth time we’ve used that nose [on a concept],” says Allen. “Every time we do it, people go crazy, but I think this is the last time we’re going to do it, honestly. Oddly enough though, we’ve never done a crew cab pickup [concept] before. Hint, hint”.

If it wasn’t obvious enough from his blatant hint, the Wrangler Pickup could come with a four-door cab layout instead of getting it where the rear seats used to be.

What else from the Crew Chief Concept would you like to see in the Wrangler Pickup?

One thing I do hope we get is a bed of those same dimensions since it seems to be useful and in line with what most median segments offer, that way at least it ensures a level of capability that will be good enough for the average owner, easy to transition to Jeep.

So a crew cab pickup for sure and maybe a bed size that similar to the concept one. I can live with that. Just not a fan of the bumper nose but that probably won't be making a comeback.

Don't think the bed sides will be see through either.

What do you think the odds are of the fabric roof being on the production model? It would be cool if you had the option to remove the roof to make it a pickup truck convertible.

You guys are in luck, now you get to see the Crew Chief in action in this 6-minute off roading video from TFL Truck and a Jeep rep in the passenger seat:


Turning radius is said to be like a full size crew cab truck

Is that a good thing or a bad thing? Like should it be better or worse?

Not a bad thing, it's just a reference point to those that want to know how it feels, just about the only or one of few places we'll hear it from for now.
But come time for us to see a production Wrangler Pick Up, I can't imagine it being much different from what we're used to currently.

The Crew Chief actually has a soft top and it's probably removable too! So you can have a convertible pickup truck if Jeep does decide to go through with it.

Also, did anyone notice what seems to be the 1959 Jeep FC150 in front of them around the 3:41 minute mark? Just found it interesting that a new model is following the older one.

If we get that soft top on the next generation version i'll be surprised since I heard it won't be able to be buttoned down as past wranglers, this one will have limitations. But with how popular open tops or just roofs that offer a more open feel, even if they are just glass, is becoming popular.

Those panoramic roofs seems to be the new popular thing but it doesn't go with Jeeps more rugged brand. Maybe we'll see a removable hard top in the future?
