New jeep pickup will get old name

Jeep's reborn pickup is undergoing road tests in full swing. However, until now it was not known what name the new car will receive. And now there is information that the pickup will be called the name that was previously used in the model range of the American manufacturer.

So, the JeepScramblerForum forum reported, citing its sources, that the new pickup would be called Jeep Scrambler. This name in the company has already called a small pickup on the basis of an elongated "Jeep" CJ-8, which was shown in 1981 and was produced until 1986.

The novelty is codenamed JT, and it will probably share the base with the new generation of the Jeep Wrangler SUV. It is reported that the pickup will receive the same 3-liter turbo diesel power unit V6, as the Wrangler. In addition, more durable Dana drive axles, designed for increased payload, are also expected.

However, two petrol engines are still expected under the hood of the Wrangler: a 2-liter turbo unit and an atmospheric 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar engine. But whether their pickup is not reported. But there is information that the pickup will receive both a hard roof and a removable soft roof.

If the new Wrangler can be presented in the next few months, the pick-up will presumably get on the conveyor only towards the end of next year.

Meanwhile, the ranking of the most expensive jeeps and SUVs in the world was published.
