We have been hearing rumors about the new Wrangler-based truck for years and there is finally reliable information about it. Just like it was expected, the new model will be heavily based on the iconic SUV.The legendary Wrangle came completely new just recently, and the new truck will feature plenty of same design characteristics. There were many suggestions about new model’s name, it is now pretty certain that the company is going to use a familiar nameplate, so it will come as 2020 Scrambler.
2020 Jeep Scrambler design
Speaking of base design characteristics, we are expecting to see a close relationship with the new Wrangler. There are many new design solutions, including a new platform, styling, interior design etc. The new 2020 Jeep Scrambler will mimic the new SUV in most of the aspects.The new truck should feature a longer wheelbase, compared to Wrangler. The reason is simple since there is a need for both comfortable cabin and large bed. Speaking of the cabin, expect to see some kind of a double-cab design, with two rows of seats and capacity of 5 adult passengers.
2020 Jeep Scrambler styling and interior design
Just like we mentioned, the 2020 Jeep Scrambler will mimic the new Wrangler as much as possible. Some of the notable novelties are new fender-mounted turn signals and LED headlights, fold-down windshield design etc. The 2020 Jeep Scrambler will closely resemble the new SUV from other angles.On the inside, expect completely the same cabin design. The new truck is yet to be presented, we are pretty sure that it will feature the same interior design as Wrangler. This also includes the dashboard, which should be almost identical.
2020 Jeep Scrambler engines
Just like in other aspects, 2020 Jeep Scrambler will share same characteristics with Wrangler in terms of powertrain. There are two gasoline engines ready for the new truck.Base models will feature a familiar 3.6-liter V6 engine, which comes pretty unchanged from the previous-gen Wrangler. It features a max output of 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque and comes with either 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission.The optional 2.0-liter engine is far more efficient, since it offers a similar amount of power, despite its significantly smaller displacement. Thanks to the mild hybrid system which provides additional torque, this engine delivers 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It comes in a pair with a new 8-speed automatic transmission.We expect to see a diesel engine in the offer. It should be a familiar 3.0-liter unit with 260 horses and 445 pound-feet of torque.
