Jeep® is known around the world for its rugged off-road SUVs; truly, no other automaker’s SUV offerings match the capability of Jeeps® like the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. But an area that Jeep has been lacking in, but long been talking about, is the pickup segment. The all-new 2019 Jeep® Scrambler pickup will change that.
We already knew that the new Jeep® Scrambler will be based on the same platform as the Wrangler, which means it will be an off-road legend the moment it rolls off production lines. But according to a recent article from Automotive News, it seems the Scrambler may share more in common with the Wrangler than previously thought.
According to a Jeep® insider who spoke with the publication, Jeep is planning to offer the Scrambler with an optional soft top, much like the Wrangler. Drivers will be able to remove or lower this soft top for true open air freedom on (and off) the road. In essence, this will make the all-new 2019 Jeep® Scrambler a convertible pickup truck.
Before you get too excited, do note that the Scrambler won’t enter production until November 2018. The new Scrambler will be built at FCA’s Toledo Assembly Complex, where the Wrangler is currently built.
