Jeep is doing something very brave. They are hitting out at the Land Rover Defender in the country where the Defender is known to be dominant. They are about to launch the 2018 Jeep Wrangler over in the UK and they are hoping that the truck version will separate it from the Defender.
Jeep isn’t stupid enough to think that they can compete against the Land Rover Defender. However some people believe that they may have timed it right as there may be some people who don’t like what is offered with the next gen Defender and these people may turn to the Jeep Wrangler.
We haven’t had any confirmation about the truck version at the moment but the bosses have been considering the format for the Jeep Wrangler. Of course they may not expect to see huge sales from it. It could however become a hit with those who like a wide body as this hasn’t been seen before in the UK.
The Jeep Wrangler pickup is coming out in a single cab version and it is thought that the double cab version could arrive at a later date, if it manages to do well up against the Land Rover Defender.
