It is changing every day. As every test mule, the Scrambler surprises us every time it comes out on streets. This time, again under heavy camouflage, it unveils few more details. Compared to the last time we saw it with hiding panels, this time we have two novelties. First of all, the tailgate is covered and hides something, that is obvious. The other thing is missing spare wheel we could see earlier. There is no this part under the 2020 Jeep Scrambler spied test mule.
Well, there is still plenty of time before the premiere of the 2020 Jeep Scrambler. Also, the production model could change before the launch. So, it is not a surprise to see such changes on test mules. It is also too early for official info and final decisions. So, we need to listen carefully to any further update about the new Scrambler truck.
2020 Jeep Scrambler is a Truck, Wrangler Remains SUV
The saga is over. We are getting strong hints that should become official every day – the 2020 Jeep Scrambler is taking a position in the mid-size truck class. On the other hand, speculations about the Wrangler being a pickup ended with the SUV remaining SUV. This is the best option according to the opinion of many fans. They love Wrangler as it is and there is no need for radical change.
On the other hand, the Scrambler is not so popular. These speculations will boost its name recognition. So, with a new truck and familiar name, the pickup could achieve big things right from the start.
2020 Jeep Scrambler – FCA’s Mid-Size Truck
Ram 1500 is one of the leaders in the full-size truck segment. It successfully competes with likes of Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado. On the other hand, in the mid-size segment, fans of this brand don’t have a model to buy. On the other hand, Chevy Colorado is one of the best in the league, and the return of the Ford Ranger caused a lot of attention. So, it turns for FCA to react. The 2020 Jeep Scrambler could take that position, instead of some returns we could hear in rumors. Dodge Dakota seemed to be a favorite. But now, the FCA will have a representative in the mid-size class.
2020 Jeep Scrambler Spy Photos Unveil More Details
Let’s go back to the spied test mule. That is the only clear sign of existence. We can speculate about everything else. Well, the new tailgate is not 100 percent sure for the 2020 Jeep Scrambler. However, since it is being tested, it is likely we could see it. On some fan renderings, it looks ready for production.
At same mule, the company removed spare wheel beneath the bed. This is a trademark of Jeep vehicles, to carry this part outside. However, spy photos are not unveiling if this one is now in the bed, or it is removed for good. It is hard to imagine a truck without a spare wheel, though.
2020 Jeep Scrambler Release Date
There is a delay in development. We could see spy photos earlier, but we were never sure the Scrambler is coming. Now, with the latest reports mentioning 2020 as the year model, experts are pretty sure we won’t see 2019 truck even as the concept. Whatsoever, the 2020 Jeep Scrambler will come during next season. It will debut during the second half of the year. The FCA will give more room to Wranger, as the better-known nameplate.
The 2020 Jeep Scrambler is going to have a competitive price. That means the company will monitor the situation in the mid-size segment. Furthermore, we can expect the 2020 Scrambler to start closer to Ranger’s $25,000 than Tacoma’s $20,000 initial price.
