Check it out!! Chrysler has updated its chart of upcoming vehicles for the next few years and take a look at what we can expect to see...


Preview of Mopar Future (fixed)
14395

The new Wrangler platform is due in 2015 or 2016 or so, along with plant changes to allow for greater flexibility and output. We believe a Wrangler-based pickup is a sure thing; the other new vehicle may be either a variant of the Wrangler itself, or something else based on the same chassis, e.g. a chassis cab truck, a hard-roof version, or a J8-type series of vehicles for flexible military and NGO use.

Scrambler. ;)

Isn't the Scrambler the original stretched wrangler, before the Unlimited...? The Comanche was their last pickup truck. Noticed that in the article about the truck in the other thread too.

Scrambler was set up as a truck. They came in a closed cab open bed as well.:yup:

I don't know about that "closed top wrangler". Maybe if the Sahara came as a closed top, with the option on a Rubi. But a Wrangler with a non removable top? Would it not have removable doors then as well?

I'm with you on that! I will have beaten my '10 into the grave by 2016. It will be time for an upgrade...and more 'build induced' debt! ..which is the best kind.

Bingo. The scrambler was a wrangler truck, not just an unlimited "stretched" wrangler.

The Jeep Wrangler Pickup May Finally Be Happening

18566

We've made it extremely clear that we've wanted nothing more in life from Chrysler than a Jeep pickup truck. We love Jeep pickup trucks. Because America. Now Jeep is indicating that they're into it, too. Are you screwing with us Jeep? Are you trying to scramble our brains? We take this very seriously.

Jeep's Mike Manley, the most appropriately named brand president since Ferrari's Mario Fuoco, told Bloomberg that he's a "big fan of a Wrangler-based pickup" and mentioned the U.S. market would be a huge source of demand. You think?

To be fair, Jeep already offers a Jeep Wrangler pickup kit that costs $5,499 and requires you to take your own Jeep apart. Totally worth it.

Besides appealing to Jalopnik readers a high priority for the entire Fiat corporation this makes sense from a business perspective. The Mitsubishi-clone Dodge Dakota was a miss and there's nothing obvious on the horizon. A Jeep truck could have appeal to smaller truck buyers.

Also, it's awesome. Now can we get a Cherokee-based Comanche?

Closed top wrangler...? What's the point of a wrangler you can't take the top off of?

I just hope they make a 4-door!I would even take a little less bed space in that option...as long as they throw in the little extender thing that Ford put in their F-150s. That would suffice.

Why cant they just compile a contract with AEV and let them do the brute Force pickup on an assembly line......:thinking:

I am sure that would make the AEV folks pretty happy....and rich!

Good idea but most aren't willing to drop 60 grand on a vehicle at a dealership then take it off road. Different if you build it yourself to do what you want just my :2cents:

There is a dealer here in Phoenix offering 2 and 4dr brutes look identical to the one posted above but they are outrageously priced. almost 45 for the 2dr and no price on the 4 dr. I can get pics and post them the 2 dr is lifted with a long arm kit and coilovers.

I had an 83 Scrambler, Black, half top, and even had wood slats on the sides. lifted 3 inches, riding n 33's, and winch in front, with portable winch in rear. ( it was removed when you drove, and you put it in the drawbar when you wanted to use it) ( actually never did use it!)
The only thing i hated was the da--m smog crud, and it had some funky azz carb, that would flood if you went off camber a lot.
Traded it on my 92 wrangler, and had my really red Wrangler for 14 yrs!!
It had been from Cabo to Vancouver B.C., and many points in between. Camped in it, hauled boats, and horse trailers, ( whew, lots of fun with a short wheelbase, and moving horses!) The hardtop came off, and I had a baja soft top for summer, but seldom used the soft top.
