Jeep will sell a pickup derivative of the Wrangler in 2004.
The Scrambler, developed initially for military use overseas, goes on sale as a 2005 model in mid-July 2004, said George Murphy, senior vice president of global marketing.
"It has been developed to increase sales quickly and to pass on the tradition of the Wrangler - which has the strongest image of any vehicle in the Jeep range," Murphy said.
The Scrambler concept sits on a stretched Wrangler wheelbase, enabling the addition of a 4-foot pickup bed behind a two-passenger compartment.Murphy said the Scrambler will be available in long and short wheelbases, but Chrysler declined to disclose specifications. Four- and six-cylinder engines will be available.
