Just read on gas2.org that the Jeep Wrangler pickup is happening and it's gong to be called the Scrambler! According to them, Chrysler has confirmed it and the Scrambler could be on the streets as soon as next yer.

Nothing yet on specs but we'll probably hear more next year at the larger auto shows if this is indeed true.

Wonder why they have chosen the name Scrambler for the Wrangler pickup. I only ask because there are motorcycles that are called Scramblers. So the name, as a style of motorcycle, already exists. Just not sure why they chose that particular name.

Exciting times with this news coming out and the chance for us to hear more at one of the upcoming shows this quarter and the first quarter of 2016.

What are the chances we'll hear something at the upcoming NAIAS?

If that site is right we will most likely hear more at NAIAS. It's one of the largest auto shows in NA.
Not sure why they're calling it a scrambler but if has to live up to the hype of it's two wheeled counterparts.

I`m not a fan of the name but whatever, it`s just a name, what`s really important is what the truck is capable of, we can always debadge it :D

Me neither but I thought I'd share it anyways. Here's a bit from what I think is a more reputable source. themotorreport.com.au thinks the Jeep pickup will be produced in the Toledo, Ohio plant in the U.S. They will forgo the Cherokee production at this plant and use the space for the Wrangler Pickup. Also built in that plant is the Wrangler 4WD. Most likely there's a reason they chose that plant but we won't know until later.

Honestly, I don't think they will call the Wrangler Pickup the Scrambler. We'll see what happens though.
That's what I was thinking as well, doesn't seem Jeep-like, more so some rumor made up while there's nothing out yet on what it will be called.

I also remember that, didn't think anyone seen that name 'renegade' coming, I only recall seeing it being heavily mentioned after name filings.

I don't see why they wouldn't simply call it the Wrangler Pick-Up. Wrangler _____. It should continue to be called a Wrangler in my opinion.

Yea but the Wrangler hasn't even always been a Wrangler...

Scrambler and Commanche are both names that haver serious pedigree to Jeep people. Just like the Renegade name was brought back to evoque something Commanche and Scrambler offer the same.

WTF is Jeep Pickup-Truck worth? There is no marketying value from competing with a GENERIC name, of the segment. Besides Nissan already beat them to the punch with the Nissan/Datsun Truck.

If that's the case then it's what other brands should have done, the fact they didn't should be obvious to anyone on this forum. Otherwise Toyota would have a truck called the Sequoia ______ and Nissan a Pathfinder (last generation) _______

Not quite sure. I can see a use for the decked out pickup from SEMA but not sure about a standard pickup from Jeep.

the new pickup was spotted with Falken Wildpeak A/T tires instead of the usual Goodyear Wrangler tires. Maybe Jeep can't decide on a tire for the pickup and will switch around a few more times. Maybe we'll see the Falken ones on the normal wranglers too?
