    No. Wagoneer will platform share with the 2019 Ram DT 1500.

    Are they simply going to six leg because the competition is? Or have they had issues with 5 leg wheels? Toyota will be the odd man out when they go to six leg.

    Based on the dark "spy" shot we saw several months ago, I think the front end of this might be somewhat accurate...

    Maybe it's actually the Jeep Truck with Ram parts mounted on it? Nah... 6 lugs is not a Jeep.

    I was assuming they would do a Ram version of the Jeep Wagoneer as soon as they said it would be on a Ram platform. Keep the numbers of both low. Make the Jeep pricey and the Ram mildly affordable.

    Looks good.
    I hope it is more revolutionary than that however.
    I'm confident a truck like that my wife wouldn't see the change.

    For comparison. There should be a few more differences in the front, specifically on the hood and the bumper.

    I thought the same. Seems practical and the older Jeep Trucks, non Comanche, were larger like the Ram. I would much prefer the Wrangler styled, removeable doors, but I'd pay for a full size as well without much grief. But it would have to have TRX or better capabilities, not so much engine, but off-road and on road. But if it's like the Toro then I'd be much, very much less interested. I like the midsize but that's too much compromising for such a long wait on this vehicle....


    ....just realized I went off base here. I was thinking Jeep Truck, but you were referring to the larger SUV Jeep.

    Going from 5 lug to 6 lug is because it will be a little more heavy duty. Components will be rated to a higher capacity for better durability.

    Thanks, sorry about the spelling of lug. I didn't catch it in time. Dakotas went from five then to six then back down to five. I hope their bolt pattern is a common one, because if not aftermarket wheels will not be plentiful.

    Oh yeah, that looks nice and tight. I hope the hood drops just a little to give better up front visibility.

    Without digging back through the thread, we're still looking at a late 2018 debut, correct?
