Jeep are hitting out at the Land Rover Defender in the country where the Defender is most popular, with the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. They do deserve a great deal of credit for doing this and they are hoping that the truck version is going to be able to separate them from the Defender.
Jeep should know that they really cannot compete with the Land Rover, which is a much loved vehicle in the UK. Of course you could say that perhaps they have timed things just right as there may be some people who don’t take to the next generation Defender. These people may go for the pickup Jeep Wrangler.
The Jeep Wrangler truck version hasn’t been confirmed just yet; however the bosses have been considering it for a long time, even though sales may not be huge. It could prove to be a popular choice in the UK as this is style that hasn’t been seen.
The Jeep Wrangler pickup version would be first offered just with the single cab and they may offer the double cab later if it proves to be popular with people in competing against the Land Rover Defender.
But the question we want to know is whether you would choose the Jeep Wrangler or whether you would go with the Land Rover Defender in the UK?
