The Gladiator has at long last appeared at the LA Auto Show on 11/28/18. Snap here for full subtleties on Jeep’s new pickup.
Jeep hasn’t sold a pickup truck since 1992, when the XJ Cherokee-based Comanche left generation. From that point forward, Jeep has made numerous idea pickups to prod us. Presently, we realize that a JL Wrangler-put together pickup is with respect to its way, and it’s high on our rundown of autos we can hardly wait to drive. To state we’re energized for the Wrangler pickup would be putting it mildly, so we should round up all that we ponder it.
Jeep began the Wrangler pickup fever in 2005 with the Gladiator Concept (appeared), yet it never achieved generation. A bunch of ideas since just served to whet our aggregate hunger further.
At long last, the late Fiat Chrysler CEO, Sergio Marchionne, affirmed in mid 2016 that Jeep would offer a creation pickup form of the JL Wrangler, the standard SUV-variant of which made its introduction in late 2017.
We’ll See it In November
We presumed that the Wrangler pickup would make its presentation at the LA Auto Show this year, and now it’s affirmed. By means of Jalopnik, the LA Auto Show put out a public statement saying that “a pickup truck from Jeep” will be among the vehicles making their reality make a big appearance at the show. The media see for the Auto Show begins November 27th, so hope to at long last observe the Wrangler pickup at that point, if not sooner.
AutoNews reports that Jeep merchants were told at national meeting that the Wrangler Pickup would touch base in their showrooms in April 2019. That implies the truck will most likely start creation around the finish of this current year.
We Think It’ll Be Called the Gladiator
Initially, talk had it that the Wrangler pickup would be named Scrambler, after the uncommon two-entryway pickup CJ-8 worked from 1981 to 1986. Be that as it may, all the more as of late, we’ve heard some new proof in actuality. A tipster cautioned Jeep Scrambler Forum to an evident goof from inside FCA. Quickly, on Jeep’s media page, a header created the impression that said “2020 Jeep Gladiator.” (Jeep Scrambler Forum has since renamed itself “Jeep Gladiator Forum.”)
While the page was immediately expelled from FCA’s media site, the Wrangler pickup gossip discussion is so persuaded of its veracity, the administration is attempted to change the gathering’s name to Jeep Gladiator Forum. What’s more, if the gossip is valid, it has point of reference: “Combatant” was the name for Jeep’s Wagoneer-based pickup truck worked from 1963 to 1971, and Jeep restored the name for a JK-age Wrangler-based idea truck from 2005 referenced previously.
