As long as towing won't drain more power than normal driving or at least not to the capacity that would really diminish range. As you can imagine range is at the forefront with hybrid system or any...

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...

That should go a long way in getting Jeep to move these since the regular buyers that just want a new but different Wrangler will be looking for industry approval on that level. Not exactly easy to...

Sorry, I will be happy with a Scrambler Rubicon, this thing on the other hand is just ugly and a waste of money. For $170,000 I can buy a few cars that all serve a different purpose and in the end...

somewhere I heard that Toyota wants to release a diesel Tacoma which sits right under the Scrambler, if it wasn't for the Scramblers great towing capacity i'd say they're in the same segment, but...

I seen what Japanese tuning brands have been up to and they might also have a go at this, global market should be easy to tap into so that being the case this could very well be a Wrangler/Scrambler...

You would be surprised to find out that they would, someone with a lot of money would find it easy to part, JK8 conversion isn't easy nor cheap, so you can already figure out who the type of owner...

In a way its like a Tacoma, just a light duty truck, nothing like what we're about to get. What we're about to get is more along the lines of what AEV did but at a much more attainable price.

Correct, 10 000 is just about the target for this segment which is what all truck makers look to meet or exceed. Although some overshoot a bit. I know the current Silverado gets 12500. So I guess we...

That with the sort of towing packages they offer should even kick it up a notch but even with 10,000 I think it will serve most owners well. It lets them get into the market that the F-150,...

this might be a good thing for anyone trying to get rid of a JK8 because this sort of helps them retain some value, not everyone will want the four door and not everyone cares for a new shiny toy.

Time To Use Your Imagination...

Not long ago we got a look at the Rubicon Spec Wrangler and odds are the Scrambler will get a Rubicon trim because why not? Easiest thing to streamline between these models will be up-fitting them....
