The final name of the Jeep pickup has become known

As is often the case, the official representatives of the brand revealed the name of their new products unwittingly.

A couple of hours ago, on the official website of the Italian-American automobile concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles there was a mention of a new model of the Jeep brand. This is a pickup, which is built on the basis of the Scrambler SUV, the car received the name Gladiator.

Let us remind our readers that it was previously believed that the American pickup would be called the Scrambler.

But no, apparently the automaker’s management decided to choose a stronger name for its new product. Our foreign colleagues, who actually managed to take a screenshot from the official website of the concern, which includes the Jeep brand, report that this section of the site was quickly removed – most likely, right after the error was discovered.

We want to note that in the distant 1960s of the last century, the name Jeep Gladiator was used for full-size pickups. And in 2005, the automaker was introduced to the concept with the same name. In addition, according to insiders, it is already known that prototypes of several versions of the revived Gladiator pickup are being prepared, in particular Sport, Overland and Rubicon.

At the moment, there is no official confirmation from the American automaker regarding the name for its new model. But to wait for these data is actually not long – the official presentation of the novelty should take place at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which in turn will start very soon.
