Jeep Wrangler-based Pickup Confirmed

The Santa Cruz will have to compete with a Jeep Pickup based on the Wrangler.
Do you think the same customers will be attracted to both, or are they after different types of truck buyers?



Past Jeep concepts may provide clues about future Wrangler pickup

Jeep has been teasing this for years. While I love the idea of a p/u based on the wrangler, its much more than I will ever use, not to mention that that the wrangler is absurdly over priced, heavy, and gets horrific fuel economy. I am still all about the Santa Cruz.
Wisconsin Cruz and Tim Issler like this.

It will be based on the new Wrangler so there could be some improvements on some of those drawbacks depending on what happens with the Wrangler.

I don't think that people who go for this type of truck don't really care too much about fuel economy.

It could possibly look like this too:


It'll be a tough choice between the Wrangler and the Santa Cruz if they are both similar in fuel economy and I'm a fan of the Jeep line up. Of course the decision won't be based solely on fuel economy because either way, it's going to cost a pretty penny but I'll just have to wait and see when they are both available for testing and this won't be happening for a long while.

That looks much more like a Hummer than a Wrangler. I could see that being popular, but back in 2003-2008.

Only thing I can't see happening is a bed that comes up that high, i'm thinking it will be a traditional bed, much like what they had before.

Yea, a bed that high would not be very practical at all. Lifting things into there would be such a pain.

Ultimately they'll want to keep it quite simple, going any further into anything extra could prove unnecessary

Lord knows that FCA doesn't really have the luxury of spending a huge amount of money. Part of the reason behind this vehicle is definitely that it already has a lot of the stuff prepared. Just cut the back par off of the Wrangler.

That's just the simplicity they need to test the market all in good timing and with a small budget, always easier to scale things up with demand than to find ways to make up for a loss.
