With time, more car makers are focusing on the pickup truck segment as is evident from the developments. From Nissan to Toyota and GM every major truck maker is revamping existing models and new models are also being prepared for launch. Naturally, FCA is taking the same route with the newest 2020 Jeep Scrambler model.
The rumors of the company unveiling a pickup truck based on popular Jeep Wrangler SUV is actually true. In fact, the test prototype of upcoming Jeep Scrambler pickup truck has been spotted a few times.
2020 Jeep Scrambler design is based on the Wrangler model
Now, you can find the spy shots of upcoming 2020 Jeep Scrambler pickup truck in the web. The test model has been snapped several times and also there are some rendering photos. The model may get either soft or hard top- as per the updates. Most likely, the truck will be sold in some trim levels and several exterior colors will be there. This is likely to be a midsized truck with decent off-roading capability.
The typical Jeep design traits are present including circular headlamps and vertical slat grille at the front. However, lights are likely to be Led based. The body may be made with lightweight steel and aluminum. Recent spy images hint at the tailgate and it has a spray painted pattern. It has resemblances with Wrangler Unlimited.
The cabin of upcoming 2020 Jeep Scrambler pickup truck is likely to be utilitarian since it will be based on the Wrangler SUV. It may have a place for 4 seats and material quality should be decent. Small item storage choices will be there.
The 2020 Jeep Scrambler pickup truck will be sold with plenty of modern safety tech. The expected safety features are several airbags, radar-based cruise control, automatic emergency braking, traction control and lane keep assist.
However, FCA may keep some safety features optional. Expected amenities are 2 zone climate control, premium surrounds sound setup and a panoramic sunroof. Of course, the new version of the UConnect infotainment setup will be on offer with a bright, large display unit.
2020 Jeep Scrambler engine variant
It is not certain which engine FCA will use in the 2020 Jeep Scrambler pickup truck. However, the same engine used in the 2019 Wrangler SUV may be used in it with some modifications- say the industry experts.
So you can expect the well-known turbo diesel 3.0-liter V-6 unit. However, the company may also use a hybrid powertrain in it later. An 8-speed automatic transmission gearbox may be used with the engine and towing capacity should be good enough.
