SPOTTED: Production-Spec Jeep Wrangler Truck:

Some May Call It Scrambler, But We Will Call It Wrangler Truck For Now...

Our friends at Real Fast Fotography, have caught a production-spec Jeep Wrangler Truck (JT). Yes, some may call it “Scrambler” after the 80s CJ-8, others are calling it Gladiator after the 2005 Jeep Gladiator Concept that showcased the then-upcoming 2007 Jeep Wrangler (JK). However, nothing has been confirmed by FCA or Jeep about the vehicle actually having an official name other than Jeep Wrangler Truck or by it’s codename of (JT).

Right off the bat, this production-spec Wrangler Truck is featuring new camouflage over the bed. This leads us to think that there have been some updates. If you closely at the rear bumper of this latest production-spec truck versus the prototype, it looks like JT will get a more Wrangler like rear bumper (or at least on the off-road models).

Real Fast Fotography was quick to point out, that these prototypes are carrying the interior from the Wrangler (JL) unlike earlier prototypes. The early prototypes had hacked up interiors from the Wrangler (JK) models. You can actually make out the red on the dashboard and passenger vent in these latest pictures through the passenger side front window. The dash matches the one found on the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Which is fitting for this offroad variant.

Another interesting thing about this production-spec Wrangler Truck is the fact it may be the offroad variant, but it isn’t wearing the Wrangler Rubicon’s BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires. Instead, this truck is wearing a set of Falken Wildpeak MT tires. Falken already supplies tires for the 2019 Ram 1500 4×4 Offroad Package with it’s Falken Wildpeak AT tires. Which makes sense that the Wrangler Truck would take another page from the Ram 1500’s playbook since its rear suspension is closely designed to it.

Thanks to the leaked documents we showed you in a previous post we know there will be at least two models of the pickup offered. A base model and a premium model are shown on the document. We also know that the truck is coming with just two powertrains. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with Belt Start Generator (BSG) and Electric Stop Start (ESS) and the updated 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6.
