Default Jeep Wrangler JL–Based Pickup Coming for 2020

Jeep Wrangler JL–Based Pickup Coming for 2020Jeep will reportedly bring its Wrangler JL–based pickup to market for the 2020 model year, with order banks opening early next year. According to Jeep Scramber Forum, the pickup (codenamed JT) will also be available with a standard 3.6L Pentastar V-6 and an optional 3.0L EcoDiesel V-6.

The JT (which could possibly be called Scrambler, named for Jeep's CJ-based pickup) will be available in Sport and Rubicon trim levels, according to the forum’s sources. Furthermore, the website claims a luxury-oriented Sahara trim might be offered. And reportedly, the JT will be available with a six-speed manual transmission (likely limited to the 3.6L V-6) and an eight-speed automatic (optional on the gas engine and standard on the diesel).

Similar to the conventional Wrangler, the JT pickup will receive Dana-branded axles: M210 front and M220 rear axles for the Sport and M210 Wide front and M220 Wide rear axles for the Rubicon. The Sport will get a 3.73:1 axle ratio, while the Rubicon gets shorter 4.10 gearing, Tru-Lok axles, a 4:1 Rock-Track low-range transfer case, and taller tires.

Setting the Scrambler apart from other midsize trucks will be its heritage Jeep styling, including a removable roof and padded sport bar. The pickup will be available with a three-piece hardtop (in black or body color) and a black Sunrider soft top, and there will be a sliding rear window available (presumably only on the hard top.

This rear window will likely be similar to others in the midsize truck segment—a small opening that slides laterally—but some forum members have suggested it could be a single pane of glass that retracts electrically into the rear bulkhead. Such a feature would make removing the hardtop easier and give the Jeep greater ventilation and clearance for hauling long objects.

Given its suggested production date of January 2019, we expect to see the Wrangler/Scrambler JT officially unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit the same month. However, it’s also possible Jeep will show off its utilitarian new baby at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November of this year, giving fans more time to salivate over the truck in anticipation of its on-sale date in the first half of next year. We hope for the latter, as we really want to see the JT as soon as possible.

Tradies will continue with a Great Wall ute or Toyora ute. They are cheap and rugged and will typucally be turned over every 3 or 4 years.

I cant see a working man buying one of these for his business.
