They were the same people at one time1o990to 1997.
Been carefulthere....look more ' closely at this front hubs on the Allred one.mopar parts $none warn style locking guess coming fierce. The new axles?
Personally I think they need to bring back International as a brand of trucks and UV/SUV's.
The Scouts, and Scout II's were pretty darn good In their day.
My kids would love for me to come back to ft wayne.my current wife hoewever...not so much.
I love all 3 pick-ups! The rest of the concepts didn't get a second look from me, especially the weird paint jobs. But what I found noteworthy is that the Renegade PU had the Active Drive system with a low range, plus had a locking rear diff and an engine (diesel-Yes!!) with enough low end grunt to take on trails. But I suspect the diesel would not be offered in NA sadly, while being a great seller in the rest of the world. And as I understand it, Fiat has plenty of plant capacity in other parts of the world where they already build the Renegade. Now if only they could do something about that suspension. The recent videos of these things on trails just makes me cringe. And the spare tire needs to move. I love the look of the Gladiator too, but would hope they made a model with just one row of seats.
You're missing the entire point.
LOL, your current wife?
How often are you supposed to change those?
Jeep buyer and Ram buyer are two different buyers with different expectations and needs.
None of these Jeep truck concepts can do what a Ram can do... And *most* Rams can not do what a Jeep does.
So no, I am not reading into it more than I should.
Not as shown, but many aspects of the design exercises shown in these 6 concepts most definently will make production.
You see what I see and are still batting above 800.
I could very well see Jeep producing trucks, both for the US, and for the rest of the world. There could easily be enough "mission" separation to allow for both Ram and Jeep trucks, in the same dealer lots. Internationally, to help make them a true global brand, a Jeep truck would be needed to take on the Toyotas, and Nissans of the world.
both the truck beds look identical so for me that BIG hint.. I see a common rake on the grills and around the wind shield on Wranglers... little confused on why the lamps are not flush but there is time for that I suppose.
The Wrangler based Truck make big sense for North America... let's FCA go mid-sized without going in the same location as GM and soon Ford... hell maybe even VW but certainly Honda... suddenly crowded segment.
The Comanche on the other hand would I pray be sold in NA also but makes most sense in EU and South America as a premium over the Fiat... in Asia where Fiat is a Non-starter. A RAM version hmmmmmmm it would be nice but is there room for two small pickups... Mexico yes ... IDK about here.
Bob is back ! I love it !!
FCs are just awesome. Id love an original, or even something like the 'Mighty FC' from a few years back. TrailCat is pure win, and I love the ShortCut too. I figured it'd be a matter of time before a CJ-5 homage using the rear doors of the JKU surfaced.
Oh...hey...did I say mother-in-law?? That must've been a typo...darn spell correct...I meant to say lawn mower...yeah, that's it! LOL!!
I have no issue with a Jeep Truck like what we believe is coming with The JL based truck and/or even something like the Commanche concept.
I do, however, have an issue with the idea that Jeep could provide a full line up of trucks similar to Ram.
I love those FC's, and wish I could find one too. My wife thinks they're ugly...I'm convinced she doesn't know true beauty!
Holy hell that Crew Chief is absolutely badass looking. The proportions the colors everything is just epic. Damn that's got to be one of the best looking vehicle concepts I've seen or have been excited about in a decade.
I know there's supposed to be a Jeep in these pics...but I am just not seeing it!
I believe one problem with Rams is that they are too wide for Europe? Would a smaller, and I'm assuming more narrow Jeep truck be more acceptable? Just wondering out loud...
