Jeep Pickup Could Go Into Production Soon



Expected to launch some time next year, Jeep may start pushing Wrangler based pickup prototypes off the assembly line before its launch. Perhaps as soon as this fall because production of the JK generation Jeep Wrangler is set to end on April 7 this year.

According to Automotive News, Hyundai Mobis North America notified the State of Ohio about the JK model’s end of production timeline, which sated the end of production date to be April 7 at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' Toledo, Ohio plant. Even the necessary layoff notices have been filed.

Once JK Wrangler production officially ends, Jeep will be retooling the plant in preparation for their new Wrangler based pickup. The Toledo plant has a production capacity of around 300,000 units annually and they plan to use a third of that to assemble about 100,000 Wrangler pickups. Maybe we’re being optimistic, but that seems like enough Wrangler pickups to satisfy fans of the upcoming vehicle.

Perhaps carrying the Scrambler nameplate, much about the pickup is still hidden but we were able to piece together a broken image of what the production model could entail. Looking at various automotive publications online, we were able to figure out what the vehicle’s possible tow rating could be and the tires it may be offered with.

We look forward to learning more at its debut sometime this year.

Too bad that unlike early development information on the JL we don't get teasers for the Scrambler, even seeing one of the panels for the bed would be nice. Just so we can get some sense of its proportions. Right now i'm thinking how it will be sized in comparison to the other mid-size trucks in this segment. After all its the first time we will be seeing something like this.

I would expect similar dimensions to whats found in the 4 door Wrangler. I hope alike the new Rubicon, that the Scrambler can be equipped with larger tires, without the need for a lift kit.

As far as the cab and front end go, I can see that being the case but the rest of it has to be different fundamentally if they want a real shot at pulling in people who would have bought an F150 for simple needs that a Scrambler can potentially fulfill, because i'm that type of buyer, along with many others
