Jeep® is inarguably the biggest name in the off-roading business. The brand name has long been associated with vehicles that can veer off the beaten path to charge through mud and water, climb rocky terrain, and zoom over shifting sands. However, despite this, Jeep® has never stuck its fingers into the off-road pickup truck business until now. Rumors and whisperings of a Jeep® Wrangler Pickup variant have been swirling for ages, and the new Wrangler Pickup renderings released on the Jeep® forums could be our first look at the real deal.

According to the renderings, the Jeep® Wrangler Pickup will come in two- and four-door configurations based on the Rubicon trim. The entire front half of the truck appears to have its design in common with said trim level, but will lack the character line that runs along the side of the Wrangler, opting instead of a horizontal crease extending along the truck bed. Forum posters also theorize the Wrangler Pickup will do away with the current generation’s push-button door handles, replacing it with pull-style handles and a new hinge design on the door.
If you like to go off-roading in pickup trucks but you haven’t found anything with the capability and utility of a Jeep® Wrangler, this could be the ride for you. The Wrangler Pickup renderings promise a vehicle made to have the toughness of a Wrangler without losing the features that make pickup trucks so unique and reliable.
