Jeep Wrangler Third Row, Coming Soon: Jeep Scrambler – It’s Jeep’s solution to the Ford Ranger, Toyota HiLux as well as Nissan Navara, but one more enhancement to the hectic mid-size ute sector. Based on the new JL Wrangler which will land in your area this year, the upcoming Scrambler will be an off-road all set ute with unique sturdy appearances.
The Scrambler name itself comes from the Jeep Wrangler CJ-8, built through 1981-86, that was commonly fitted with a ‘Scrambler’ look plan. The CJ-8 had a detachable half-cab that turned the 4×4 into a ute – for this reason the name – though the only design marketed in Australia at the time had a full steel hardtop roofing system.
What will it appear like?
In its many fundamental kind the Scrambler is a four-door Wrangler with a ute tray on the back. It calls for adjustments to the ladder framework chassis and also a tray rear-end behind the second-row seats. The back tailgate remains a secret but will likely have Jeep embossed throughout it with the Scrambler name nearby. But from the B-pillar forward it will essentially appear like a Wrangler.

Offered the Scrambler’s heritage as well as Jeep’s propensity to bring out scandal sheet models there will certainly no doubt be a number of optional packs for the ute, reviving the twin side red stripes and unique alloys the original gotten.
Based on the latest JL Wrangler we could anticipate a similar degree of durable style inside, including a beefy moulded dash, rounded air vents, brand-new diff lock as well as sway bar control switches, a mix of analogue and digital dash displays as well as an as much as 8.4-inch infotainment system.
Based on the ladder structure framework that underpins the Wrangler, the Scrambler will be geared in the direction of off-road usage and have a one tonne-payload with 3500kg tow ability.
Engine alternatives from the Wrangler that will certainly pop directly in include the brand-new 200kW/400Nm 2.0-litre petroleum turbo and a 194kW/600Nm 3.0-litre V6 diesel that would certainly sit top of the course– however those engines are pretty well off the cards for Australia.
Instead, we ‘d likely have the selection of a 2.2-litre turbo diesel motor creating 150kW as well as 450Nm, and an upgraded 3.6-litre fuel V6 generating around 210kW of power and also 350Nm of torque.
Transmissions will be a six-speed handbook and eight-speed automated mated to Jeep’s Selec-Trac four-wheel drive system.
A factor of distinction over some of the competitors will certainly be if the Scrambler is able to secure safety modern technology from the Wrangler like independent emergency braking that it will should rack up a five star ANCAP score.
What’s on the wish list?
The 3.0-litre V6 would certainly include a 3rd ute to the V6 turbo diesel battle that’s currently owned by German opponents the VW Amarok and Mercedes-Benz X-Class. Yet why go only halfway when the US brand can salute its heritage with a Hellcat-style Hemi V8 that would certainly blow HSV’s Sportscat and also Ford Ranger Raptor from the water.
When is it coming?
The new Wrangler is only around the bend and the Scrambler will not be much behind. It’s tipped to disclose itself completely in the direction of the end of this year or early next, maybe as very early as the LA electric motor show in November.
