Jeep Wrangler Pick Up Truck: Back to Basics
Everything indicates that the direction of the Jeep brand would be interested in design and develop a truck whose attributes would be close to those of the Gladiator concept, unveiled in Detroit in 2005. But do not worry, since it would be very surprising that door the name of Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Pick Up Truck ...
A walk to rediscover
It is good to remember that in the early '60s, Jeep offered a full-size truck called just "Gladiator." At the time, it was used below the Jeep Wagoneer for its development.
But the next claw truck Jeep name will be compact and would be based on Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, but would have only two doors.
This truck would provide a home for five passengers. In addition, once the seat he would propose LOWERED storage spaces or loading more generous.
Cote engines, one must expect the arrival of new more energy efficient engines, whether four or six cylinders.
The production of this truck could even started the next year.
I'm even willing to bet that Jeep will officially announce its plans to offer a compact truck to the next Detroit Auto Show next January. Exactly five years after having unveiled in 2005, again in Detroit, its Gladiator concept *.
