Yet another set of photos showing the new Jeep JL-based pickup truck have appeared online, and this time, the truck was spotted at the off-road holy grail: the Rubicon Trail.
Posted to the Stellar Built Facebook page, these photos show the new truck, rumored to be called the Scrambler, running down the Rubicon. Based on how tough the trail is, this is probably the Rubicon-trim model, also evidenced by its all-terrain tires. This is yet another four-door model, as a two-door Scrambler has yet to appear in front of a camera.
It appears that Falken Wildpeak mud-terrain tires are fitted on the rear, though it seems to be a set of Falken Wildpeak all-terrain rubber on the front as far as our eyes can tell. The mud-terrains could be a possible option for the Scrambler Rubicon.
It was suggested by a commenter on the Facebook post that there were two test rigs on the trail, so it only appears in these select photos that one Jeep is wearing different tires, but with just these four pictures, it’s hard to tell.
Testing continues in earnest as Jeep prepares the Scrambler for its debut, which will probably happen at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show at the end of November. That’s still a guess, but considering the new Wrangler debuted there last year, it seems that a debut in LA makes sense.
Engine options in the new truck will of course be borrowed from the standard Wrangler, which means a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder and 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 should be on tap. The 3.0-liter EcoDiesel could also find its way under the hood of this new Jeep truck.
