Wrangler Pickup Spotted!?

News: Jeep pickup spotted?
A new Jeep pickup, like the old Scrambler, has been rumored to be under development for many years, but for now, buyers have to go to an AEV Brute or opt for a similarly expensive Jeep conversion kit. With Wranglers being snapped up by buyers as fast as the Toledo plant can build them, and a completely new model due in 2016-2017, there’s little incentive for the company to divert engineering resources or space to making pickups.



That may be changing when the next-generation Wranglers arrive. Rumored to be on a long-travel independent suspension similar to the pioneering Li’l Blue project (itself based on the first-year Jeep Wagoneer), the new pickup appears to be in parallel development with Wrangler. Moving to an independent suspension could allow for production increases, as the suspension modules would be assembled off-site, freeing up space in the main plant. The Li’l Blue project provided increased mobility (compared with 1997 Wranglers) with superior on-road performance, the primary drawbacks being limited after-purchase modifications and higher cost.

Mr. Source, who captured the admittedly blurry and low-resolution photo above, wrote that an internal, unofficial source said it was definitely not an AEV Brute or past concept.

I think you have a better chance of seeing a Jeep with a steam engine than a supercharged 4 banger.

i was interested in that gladiator model a few years back when they were talking about it... needless to say it never made it to production.

i wonder if this one really will. i think in the meantime if someone wants a wrangler pick up. as others side just buy the brute kit and do it yourself.

the 3rd brake light looks surprisingly similar in size and location to the Brute... I say it's Shenanigans to get some clicks.

I think the Brute is a really cool concept and it would definitely have been on my shopping list but for the cost STARTING at 60K and going up to 125K for a 6.4 hemi and all the fancy options I'd rather have a JKUR, Hemi Ram, and Subaru BRZ....

I dunno, if you squint your eyes and picture the passenger rear corner of the cab, there does not seem to be enough length from there to the A-pillar to be a full 4-door? Mayhaps a 2-Dr JK Brute prototype?
Or a Gladiator -

This is because they are extremely limited production so AEV doesn't have the best production line going on. And there is also a lot of waste with the kit. If it hit mass production it would start not too much higher than the wrangler. Probably just about 33k for a sport model. Which isn't terrible considering a crew cab ram starts not too much less
