Jeep Wrangler Pickup Could Get An Optional Soft Top.
The upcoming Jeep Wrangler-based pickup can be a convertible. According to a report from Automotive News, Jeep’s new truck could get a retractable soft top that can be lowered down or can completely removed just like in the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited.
Sources who had the knowledge about this matter told Automotive News that the Wrangler-based pickup will be confirmed available as a soft top. It will be built alongside the outgoing JK Wrangler and the upcoming JL Wrangler. However, we’ll be seeing a new roof structure and a roof support which had to be redesigned for both the JL Wrangler and the upcoming Wrangler-based pickup in order to comply with current safety regulations on roof strength.
Previous year, Jeep revealed a truck concept at it’s annual Easter Safari called the Crew Chief 715, which was basically a Wrangler pickup. Automotive News made sure that the Crew Chief 715 Concept’s design could probably influence the production of the Wrangler-based pickup with the exception of the grill since the truck is expected to be more of a traditional seven-slot grill found in production Jeep vehicles.
As Motor Trend reported earlier this year that the Wrangler-based pickup could receive a diesel powertrain. Along with a longer frame than the Wrangler Unlimited and that the gas engines in the JL Wrangler may not be available in the truck. As with the JK and JL Wranglers, the Wrangler-based pickup will be built alongside its SUV counterparts in FCA’s Toledo, Ohio plant.
