Much like the upcoming Wrangler iteration, the Jeep Scrambler pickup will come with an optional droptop. This will allow the Scrambler to truly earn the convertible title many expected it would have.

The concept of a convertible Jeep pickup is nothing new for the brand. Back in 2016, Jeep revealed its Crew Chief 715 concept vehicle, which also included a soft-top option.

The Scrambler is currently scheduled to enter production in November 2018 at FCA’s Toledo Assembly Complex. Between then and now, we are likely to learn more about this exciting new Jeep vehicle.
