The Jeep Scrambler Pickup prototypes, presumably a Rubicon and a Sport model, have been spied during road test over Michigan. They are likely the final versions to launch soon, though still hidden under a heavy disguise.
The current JK-series components are seen on the shots, as well as the wheels sized like in the present Jeep.
The vehicle’s frame is an updated version of the Wrangler Unlimited, and the styling also remains the current Wrangler, albeit we may expect some tweaks to make the pickup truck different from the standard off-roader.
In the mid-size pickup segment the Scrambler meets such rivals as the Ford Ranger and Chevrolet Colorado.
It will probably get a FCA’s 3.6-liter 6-cylinder motor coupled with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. A hybrid modification is also possible.
The model will be put into production next April, so its official debut may be at the Auto Show in Los Angeles in November 2018 or in January at the 2019 NAIAS in Detroit.
