New Jeep Pick-up Coming To 2018 LA Auto Show
According to a new post by Jeep Scrambler Forum. The forum saw a now-deleted section on Fiat Chrysler's site titled "2020 Jeep Gladiator," indicating that the automaker may revive a name it started using more than 50 years ago.
Jeep used the Gladiator name on pickup trucks built throughout the 1960s. In 2005, Jeep brought back the name for a concept pickup that gave us hope for future Jeeps with a bed after the XJ-chassis Comanche was discontinued. Of course, the Scrambler name also has a history tied to CJ-8 pickups from the 1980s.
Jeep Scrambler Forum says it confirmed its finding with a "long-time trusted source." When we reached out to a Jeep spokesman, he declined to comment.
Earlier this month, the forum also uncovered a teaser of the new Jeep pickup that was revealed during an FCA dealer presentation. Along with a picture of the camouflaged pickup, the presentation gave away a few vague clues about the model, including that it will come with "15 class-exclusive innovations" and "next-generation advanced safety systems." It will also offer the latest infotainment systems with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
