We have been looking out for more sightings of the Jeep Wrangler Scrambler so we can get more of an idea of what it looks like. The image above captures that and more. We now also know that it will have genuine off road capability just like its Jeep siblings.

Spotted on the Rubicon Trail after what looks like a testing session, the Jeep Wrangler Scrambler looks a little worse for wear. Still covered in camouflage, it is definitely the truck version as that would be very difficult to mask. From the state of the camo, the Scrambler had been put through its paces along the challenging trail, proving its ability on the rough stuff.

There have been a few sightings of the Jeep Wrangler Scrambler complete with camouflage in different situations. Some sightings have been on the highway, some in the mountains but this sighting on the Rubicon Trail is most telling. It shows us that Jeep is taking the off road ability seriously and won’t just be paying lip service while playing on the prestige of the Wrangler name.

We still don’t know a great deal about the Jeep Wrangler Scrambler as yet. Aside from being longer with a truck bed, the Scrambler is obviously based on a Wrangler and will likely use the Pentastar V6 engine. There is also a diesel variant on the way which has also been seen on the road.

The 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 is a tried and tested motor that produces 285 hp. There is also supposed to be a smaller 2.0-litre engine option and the 3.0-litre diesel. We don’t know anything about those two engines yet though. There may also be a hybrid version but that has yet to be confirmed.

We know that the Jeep Wrangler Scrambler will be assembled in Toledo, Ohio as the factory has been retooled especially for it. We also expect the finished product to be released in Spring or Summer 2019. We don’t know when it will be shown at an auto show or how much it will cost. The cost may be a stumbling block if Sergio Marchionne’s comment about it being ‘expensive – intentionally so’ is accurate.

If manufacturing is due for Spring 2019, the Jeep Wrangler Scrambler will likely hit the auto shows late this year or early next. LA is in November while most other auto shows are from January onwards.

For now, Unique Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 915 Walkers Line, Burlington, ON  L7N 3V8 has a range of new and certified used Wranglers for sale at some very competitive prices!
