Jeep pickup spotted at CTC

Jeep Scrambler pickup

Real Fast Fotography spotted this Jeep pickup, which many believe will be dubbed the Scrambler (though Comanche and Gladiator are also in the running, because of the eggs), driving around the Chrysler Tech Center environs.

It’s not the first time the intrepid Real Fast Fotography crew has caught the Jeep “JT” driving around, and the company can’t do much to disguise its distinctive features.

Allpar has been told that the pickup will have a much higher tow rating than the standard Wrangler; the rear suspension, as one would expect, borrows as much from Ram pickups as from Jeep.  That makes sense, given the admirable off-road credentials of the Power Wagon and Rebel.

Timing is uncertain; past statements have claimed we would see the pickup one year after the new Wrangler, which is already hitting dealerships.  That’s to give Jeep time to get the new plant up to speed before shutting down production at the old plant, and then to update the Wrangler’s long-time Toledo home. Former Jeep engineer Robert Sheaves estimated that around 30,000 domestic sales per year were likely being targeted by the pickup; its plant will also be able to make normal Wranglers, which have been capacity-constrained for years.
