Big changes are happening in Chrysler’s SUV division. These years are full of big novelties. Some of the most important models were redesigned in past few years and some of them will be in near future. Also, company will try to offer something new, different from what we seen with this brand. According to the latest reports, company will introduce a pickup truck. Jeep already produced this type of vehicle, but it was very long time ago, during 80’s. Since then, we didn’t see anything similar from this brand. The 2018 Jeep Pickup Truck is expected to come in about two years.
2018 Jeep Pickup Truck specs
This model is coming in about two years, so there is not much details about it. One thing that is pretty much for sure is that 2018 Jeep Pickup Truck will be based on the new Jeep Wrangler. This model is coming completely redesigned probably as 2017 year model. So, new pickup is expected to come right after. These two models are expected to share plenty of characteristics. As you probably know, new Wrangler is coming with completely new platform. Massive use of extra-light materials is expected, and 2018 Jeep Pickup Truck will also follow these design solutions. When it is about styling, new truck will come heavily influenced by Wrangler.
Many of parts will be shared. Significant part of the styling should be the same. The “only” difference will in that rear end, where we will see a classic truck-ish appearance instead of Wrangler’s SUV-ish one. When it is about cab configurations, it is for sure that some kind of extended and double cabs will come, while two-seat variant is under question. When it is about powertrain, 2018 Jeep Pickup Truck will come with same units as Wrangler. For now, it is known that company prepares new diesel engine for these two models. Also, petrol units will be in offer for sure. Exact units are still unknown. Since Chrysler follows world’s latest trend of engine downsizing, expect some smaller displacements, which will beside good economy also have great amount of power. The 2018 Jeep Pickup Truck is expected to come both in two- and four-wheel drive configurations.
