Jeep fans are gearing up for next year now that new photos of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup truck, the Jeep Scrambler, have started making the rounds online. Photos taken and published by Motor 1 show the Jeep Scrambler’s interior, wheels, and shorter truck bed than a typical Wrangler. While the new Jeep Scrambler pickup truck is still very much under wraps despite a few models being on the road in Michigan, where the photos were snapped, the new truck model, out in 2019, is based on the design of the popular Jeep Wrangler.
The Jeep Scrambler will be the first time the Jeep brand, which is owned by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, has released a pickup truck in more than 25 years. Jeep has long produced pickup trucks, starting in 1947 with the Jeep Willys-Overland 4×4. But in 1992, Chrysler phased out the Jeep Comanche, the brand’s last iteration of truck. Until now.

In April 2018, Autoweek also posted early photos of the 2019 Jeep truck. At that point, it wasn’t certain that the name of the 2019 Jeep pickup would be the Jeep Scrambler.
Correction, Sept. 5, 2018: An earlier version of this article misstated the name of Jeep’s corporate parent in 1992. It was Chrysler, not Fiat Chrysler.
