2020 Jeep ‘Scrambler’ Pickup Truck Teased During FCA Dealer Presentation

As information about Jeep’s upcoming ‘Scrambler’ pickup truck keeps pouring in, we now have a new piece of the puzzle to stare at in the shape of a document pulled from an FCA dealer presentation.

While its moniker remains unofficial, FCA source materials do confirm the fact that it will boast an authentic Jeep design, both off-road and real truck capabilities, 15 class-exclusive innovations, next-gen advanced safety tech, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

The image, posted on the Jeep Scrambler Forum, also reconfirms the Scrambler’s debut at the 2018 LA Auto Show on November 28th, which puts us just 26 days away from feasting our eyes on Jeep’s first pickup truck in almost 30 years, unless more images will leak online until then.

As for what its 15 class-exclusive innovations might be, Jeep could be referring to Wrangler-like features such as the fold-down windshield and removable doors and roof, among other things. The overall design of the vehicle remains a mystery (mostly), as prototypes have thus far only gone out in traffic under heavy camouflage. When it’s all said and done, we do expect this to look seriously rugged and be more capable enough off-road.

Power is said to come from a standard 285 HP 3.6-liter V6 and an available 270 HP 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot, while a 3.0-liter V6 diesel could be launched after the truck’s official debut, along with a single cab version.

    What does “authentic Jeep design” even mean?

    • Stephen G

      I think the author is referring to the iconic design that Jeep pioneered and is best known for. Like HUMMER used the “authentic Jeep design”.

        Right. Which isn’t really conducive to a small somewhat-useless pickup bed behind it (watch most get caps; that’ll be real purdy). And thin side doors and a front crash structure that isn’t great…and so on.

        • Stephen G

          Yeah, but it’s kinda cool. I don’t think anybody in the market for a vehicle traditionally know as a “pickup” would consider this nor would they consider a Ridgeline or Colorado/Ranger. This is definitely aimed at a niche market. It is what it is.

      I think it means, “FOH Mahindra.”
