Jeep Plans Optional Soft-Top On Scrambler Pickup


Jeep has announced plans to offer an optional soft-top on their Scrambler pickup. The company has signaled plans to fully reveal its two-door Wrangler along with the four-door Wrangler Unlimited at next week’s Los Angeles Auto Show. Jeep’s new pickup truck will not be there. The plan is to have it make its debut some time during 2018. The Scrambler pickup is slated to begin production at Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s assembly plant in Toledo, Ohio in November 2018. The Scrambler pickup truck is based on the Jeep Wrangler. It is scheduled to begin hitting the market in about a year.

At the Moab Easter Jeep Safari last year, Jeep introduced its Crew Chief 715 concept. That vehicle is based on Jeep’s previous-generation Wrangler Unlimited. The Crew Chief 715 concept looks like a pickup truck that has a fabric roof as well as an array of design cues that pay tribute to a wide selection of Jeep military vehicles that include the Kaiser M715. People that are Crew Chief 715 fans will be ecstatic to hear that the Wrangler pickup that they have long been waiting for, codenamed ‘JT’, will draw some inspiration from the concept vehicle that debuted last year.

Sources with close connections to Jeep have revealed to Automotive News that the utilitarian vehicle will have an optional soft top, just like the regular Wrangler. In addition to that, owners will have the option to simply lower the soft top or to remove it completely. A number of the styling traits that were included in the Crew Chief 715 is said to be planned to be included on the Scrambler. However the front grille will not be a part of it. That will enable it to stay true to the heritage of the Wrangler. The name Scrambler has not yet been confirmed as what the new pickup will be called.

There are numerous spy images that have shown that the testing phase of the new pickup truck is already well underway. The new Jeep pickup has rumored to have been in the development stage for quite a few years. Many people have seen the regular Wranglers driving out in the open. Those in the know say they do not expect too many surprises when it comes to the design of Jeep’s new pickup version of the Wrangler. When the new Scrambler eventually arrives, many say it could feature a V6 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine similar to the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder as well as the company’s naturally aspirated V6 Pentastar gasoline engines.

For people that are both Jeep and pickup lovers, excitement is at an all-time high. All signs point to the new Scrambler being a great addition to the Jeep lineup of rugged, versatile vehicles. Automotive enthusiasts are counting down the days and poring over spy photographs to get a look at this long-awaited Jeep pickup. The company has a 75 year tradition of creating excellent go anywhere, do anything vehicles and the Scrambler is anticipated continue that tradition.
