With several brands under its name, Chrysler is one of major car manufacturers in the world. It always offers some innovations to stay competitive. In next few years, we are going to see many new things from this manufacturer. One of its best-known brands is called Jeep. This division is well-known for its excellent SUVs and crossover. This time, we are going to see something new. Company prepares a completely new vehicle. It will be a pickup truck, based on legendary Wrangler SUV. Although arrival of this model is close, we still don’t know its exact name. For now, we will call it a 2017 Jeep Gladiator Pickup, because this was the name of the last pickup that company presented as a concept car, more than a decade ago.
2017 Jeep Gladiator Pickup redesign and features
The 2017 Jeep Gladiator Pickup will a completely new model from this Chrysler’s division. Company did produce vehicles of this type before, but that was several decades ago. So, we could say that this is something completely new from Jeep. So far, we don’t have many details about new model. It is for sure that it will be based on Wrangler SUV. This legendary model is coming completely redesigned next year. It will feature many changes, and 2017 Gladiator Pickup should come with the pretty much same things. These two models will share the platform and big majority of parts. They will share design language too. Front end of the new truck will be identic to new Wrangler. Same thing we expect to see inside, where these two model should feature pretty much the same interior design. New model will probably come only in double cab-like body style.
2017 Jeep Gladiator Pickup engine
We expect that 2017 Jeep Gladiator Pickup will share powertrain with new Wrangler. We will see at least two engines in offer. Company’s familiar 3.6 V6 Pentastar should come, with some improvements in terms of power and economy. We also expect some smaller, 4-cylinder unit in offer. This will probably be new 2.0 liter engine. Finally, new model should come with diesel engine too. However, we won’t see this version in next few years for sure.
2017 Jeep Gladiator Pickup release date and price
The 2017 Jeep Gladiator Pickup should come right after Wrangler’s arrival. More precise date is still unknown. When it is about price, we believe that base model won’t cost more than 30.000 dollars.
