Rumors surrounding a Jeep Wrangler pickup truck have been floating around for years now but now, they’re no longer rumors. Officials have confirmed that we will indeed be seeing a 2018 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck. As soon as the announcement hit, so did spy photos of the much-requested pickup model.
The photos depict a Wrangler pickup with a longer-than-normal wheelbase, complete with a truck bed. In total, it comes to about the same size as a Chevrolet Suburban and that’s good news for pickup lovers. The bed, in turn, seems to be around five feet long and the taillights resemble those on the Ram trucks. Considering both brands fall under the Fiat Chrysler umbrella, we wouldn’t be surprised if it were so.
Potential engines range from a 3.6-liter V6 to a 2.0-liter turbocharged four cylinder and, fingers crossed, a diesel engine. It’s likely any of those engines will be mated to a six- or eight-speed transmission. Both rear- and four-wheel drive will likely make it to the pickup’s list of capability features.
The Jeep Wrangler pickup will be the first of its kind on the brand’s lineup since the Comanche left the market in 1992. The new pickup will also make use of aluminum body panels to reduce weight, just like the next-generation standard Jeep Wrangler.
Expect the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler pickup to debut towards the end of 2017.
We here at Jasper Jeep can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler pickup!
