Pickup-based SUV Scramblera Couple of hours ago, the official website of the Italian-American automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles there was a mention of a new model of the Jeep brand, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Аvtodream.
We are talking about the truck, which is built on the basis of the SUV Scrambler, the car will be called Gladiator.
We remind our readers that previously it was thought that the American pickup truck will be called the Scrambler.
But no, apparently the automaker decided to choose his new stronger name. Our foreign colleagues, who actually managed to make a screenshot from the official website of the group, which includes the Jeep brand, reported that this section of the site quickly removed – most likely, immediately after it was discovered the oversight.
I note that in the distant 1960-ies of the last century, the name Jeep Gladiator was used for full-size pickups. And in 2005, the automaker presented the concept with the same name. In addition, according to insiders, it is already known that preparing for the prototypes of several versions of the revived Gladiator pickup truck, in particular Sport, Overland and Rubicon.
At the moment, no official confirmation from the American automaker, in relation to the name for its new model didn’t arrive.
But wait this data actually is not long – the official presentation of novelties to be held at the motor show in Los Angeles, which in turn will start very soon.
