    Question NEW Jeep Truck Photos on Car & Driver

    So this was on the cover and inside of my Car & Driver today. This doesn't look like a prototype - this looks like the done deal.
    Note the Renegade style taillights

    Edit: So I've gone back and looked hard at the photos. I can't tell if this is a photo-shopped rendering or if these are actual prototypes.
    The placement of the vehicle in the second photo is obviously edited, but these really do look like a well-finished prototype. Time will tell I guess.
    A couple tidbits in the story is a claim that the frame will be hydro-formed, and that the body will be a combination of aluminum, steel & plastic

    That looks pretty legit or at least, a pretty good representation of what we might be able to see both on the new truck if it actually happens as well as the JL. Looks good but I wish it wouldn't look so much like a JK.

    I agree. Would be cool if they had a slightly different truck specific grill or different flares or something to differentiate the two.

    If that's the pickup box that's gonna be made, then honestly, it came out better than what I was expecting.

    That's crazy! In the second picture it looks like it sitting in the Elder Dodge showroom.. The place where I bought Steel!

    Umm, I bet the front ends different.

    Kinda like the change from CJ to YJ. Change the grill and call it new
