Jeep’s highly anticipated pickup is expected to arrive in showrooms next April.
The truck, which is based on the Wrangler and will reportedly be dubbed the Scrambler, will be entering production this year, according to Automotive News which refers to sources at today’s FCA dealers meeting at the NADA Show in Las Vegas.
That’s good news for dealers who have been contending with ongoing sales declines over the past 18 months largely owed to FCA’s move to reduce fleet sales.
Reid Bigland, head of U.S. sales for FCA, told dealers that economic indicators look favorable for increased sales in 2018. Consumers continue to lean more towards larger vehicles like SUVs and trucks, which makes FCA even more encouraged about upcoming sales for its redesigned Jeep Wranger and Ram 1500 pickup.
