Post Jeep Wrangler Pickup Spied For The First Time



We havenít seen a pickup from Jeep since the Comancheís production ended in 1992 and ever since Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed that the Jeep Wrangler Pickup is going to happen, weíve been anxiously waiting for some sort of visual confirmation. Now we have photographic evidence of the Wrangler pickupís existence with spy shots of a heavily camouflaged prototype.

Seen in the spy photos is what looks like a four door Wrangler Unlimited body with a truck bed attached to it but with how long the wheelbase is, it could suggest that this bed design may not be the final one making its way onto the production model. The overall size looks large, maybe similar to that of the 2013 AEV Brute Double Cab and the camouflaged bed looks to be around 5.5-feet in length.

What is prominent on the test mule are those next generation Wrangler grille slots. The seven-slot grille has larger spaces and thinner ribs, not the best change if Jeep wants to improve the Wranglerís aerodynamics.

As for whatís under that camouflaged hood, we can expect to see a gas powered V6 engine, a 300hp turbocharged four-cylinder code named hurricane, or maybe even an EcoDiesel engine. We donít know if these exact engines will make it into the pickup but we can safely assume that Jeep will have at least one gas and one diesel option available.

We still have a long while to wait because the pickup is expected to debut as a 2018 or 2019 model year vehicle.

The Wrangler pickup is actually a lot longer than I expected it to be. This is like a full-sized pickup truck lol. BUT that actually makes me love it even more.

I like how Jeep has stuck so close to a Wrangler design. The pickup looks like a wrangler but with a bed mounted. Wonder if they'll come with bed options in case someone wants a smaller bed.

I'm not too sure but I doubt it for some reason. It looks perfectly fitting dimension wise, I can't imagine a smaller bed on there

Bed length options will be a good thing to do since already it's an easy platform to work with in that respect, easy way to expand their overall reach in the market. But what we're seeing here should scoop up a lot of the typical buyer that buys an F-150, 1500, etc... those you see everywhere.

You don't really need bed size options and it may be more trouble for Jeep than it's worth. I'm not sure what they have to change for each truck bed size. What they may change is the cab size like single cab.

One thing for sure is it will be an easy thing for them to throw in. But for the most part they just need a size that meets the needs of the average truck buyer, which if you look at competing truck brands like Ford, RAM and Chevy, that's easy to figure out. So along the lines of what we see from the F-150, RAM 1500, etc.

I'm sure that's exactly what they're doing. They need to have it sized similarly for competitive reasons.

Do you guys think at some point we might see a hybrid Jeep truck come to market? Ford is already working on a hybrid F-150. Or might FCA keep hybrid powertrains for trucks limited to just RAM?
