While it doesn’t seem that we remember having pickup truck models from Jeep, and it’s been a long time since we saw a pickup from this brand.
We know there’s about to be a new Jeep pickup that’s based on the Wrangler platform and this new truck is expected to carry the name Gladiator that has been used once before. Regardless of the name, the Jeep brand does know how to create a pickup truck and give us more of what we want when we drive. Here’s a look back at the Jeep pickup trucks of the past.
Jeep Gladiator Concept
This pickup truck was offered as a concept model that came to the auto shows in 2005 to be a model that might have been used at the time. If it hadn’t been for the automotive market issues of 2008, we might have seen this concept turned into a production model much sooner to give us a truck that would offer the look and the power that makes sense.
Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler
From 1981 until 1985 this truck was the one offered to influence the upcoming model that we will see for the 2020 model year. This truck had a five-foot truck bed attached to the Jeep CJ platform to offer the practicality you want for the drive. The one we will see will have four doors and seating for five, which is different from this Scrambler.
Jeep Forward Control
The power on the farm or ranch that you needed from 1956 until 1965 could be provided by this impressive Jeep truck. This truck was all about utility and it was put to use for commercial driving more than anything else. The passenger and driver are positioned in a forward cab that was placed in front of the front wheels and this truck rode on the CJ-5 platform.
This was one pickup truck that wasn’t based on the Wrangler platform at all. This truck looked more like a standard pickup and it was based on the Jeep Wagoneer platform. This truck found its way to our roads from 1962 until 1988 even though the Gladiator name was dropped in 1971. This was a truck that had the power and the prestige for the drive.
Probably the most recognizable Jeep pickup truck in history, the Commando was built from 1966 until 1973 to give us a truck that had a small cab, a short wheelbase, and the capability needed on the roads and trails. This truck could be considered more of a half truck, half stylish convertible to be an interesting vehicle for you to drive.
The most recent pickup truck we had on the market that wore the Jeep name was the Comanche. This truck was offered from 1985 until 1992 and it was truly an off-road machine that was able to offer you a unique experience when you took it on the trails. This truck was small but capable and it carried the stylings of the previous Cherokee with it.
