View Full Version : What Name Would You Like the All New Jeep JT Pickup Truck to be Called?

In a recent article published on AutoBlog, Jeep's global chief Mike Manley suggested that they "could go back to one from the record books" when it comes to a name above and beyond the "JT". Certainly, names like "Gladiator", "J-Series" or even "Comanche" do come to mind and I was wondering what you Jeep Truck loving guys thought? What name would you go with, something from the record books? Something new? Or, maybe just it letter designation, "JT"? I'd love to know what you think :yup:


Manley wouldn't speculate on a name, though it has a long list of historic choices. Jeep used "Comanche" on a Cherokee-based pickup from 1986-92 and had the Gladiator/J-Series for a larger truck from 1963-87. "Of course we could go back to one of the record books [for a name]," Manley said.

Gladiator is trying a little too hard. How about just Jeep Truck? Or Jeep Marine? Or Jeep SEAL?

I like the idea of sticking with the JT. To me keeping it similar to its JL counterpart is kind of similar to when they produced the CJ-8.

You know, you make a good argument there. Being that the truck is going to be based off the Wrangler, I'm thinking maybe it should be kept simple like the CJ-8 or maybe call it the Scrambler like it was called.

DAmmit...Eddie beat me to it. It's a long wheelbase wrangler truck...just like the scrambler was a long wheelbase CJ-7.

Scrambler is the way to go!!

I'd vote for JT but I'm expecting them to go with Gladiator.

J.T. is cool, so is JTD. Or how about “ typical over priced, for what you really get” Jeep. Hmmm... to long?

Would love to see it called Comanche. Those trucks were badass. Can't wait until I have enough money to get my hands on one

Ridgway, In honour of General Matthew Bunker Ridgway. One tough soldier who has yet to have a vehicle named after him as far as I know.

I hope it will be somewhat like the Crew Chief concept and bear the same name.

“Crew Chief” or “Chief”

Kimosabi, I figure Tonto was always carrying the Lone Rangers stuff, the JT can carry ours. And, in a roundabout kinda way, a tie in to the Scout.

Scrambler is fine. But please, no ridiculous pricing. That would be a disappointment.

You’re delusional, if you think it’s not going to be expensive. I bet that the base price will be up toward 40k.

Whether that’s “expensive” or not is all relative I guess.

The base price of a JL is that. Keep going higher.

Idk, JLU Sport is 31,000, but the Rubicon is 41,000. I wonder if the truck will have capability levels like the Wrangler?

This ^^^^^


Idk, JLU Sport is 31,000, but the Rubicon is 41,000.

I'm pretty sure it had already been announced that the truck would be purposefully priced HIGH.

It should. It is after all built on the same platform.

JT works. It makes sense within the letter designation system used so far. But letter designator doesn't really go far enough. They need a name! I never owned a Scrambler but boy howdy, did I want one! I'd be all for a 2-door JT designated as a Scrambler. :wings: A JTS or JS to keep the 2-letter designator. Now I know the Comanche never had a 4-door but I'd really like to see the newer Wrangler based truck pick up that name again since it's more like a truck than a 2-door Scrambler would be. Even with that Wrangler grille... :bleh: JTC or JT or JC desintator?

Put the Crew Chief into production? I'd trade the JKURHR in on an OD green as soon as possible! :shock:
