Because there are prototype parts inside.
An HD-platform based SUV... How nice...
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.
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.
I'm still not convinced... we can discuss later.
Tight Work Sky!!!. alil more work on the Grill making it more Evolutionary would good.
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?
