…with some strange-looking trailers
Jeep Wranglers have never really been an obvious choice for a tow rig in Australia. Some might venture out with a small camper-trailer, but beyond that nothing is really feasible.
Jeep looks to be changing that up, however, with the Scrambler ute coming in 2018. To be a truly functional and competitive 4WD in Australia, the Scrambler will have to tow well. This test rig, which appears to be loaded with a set amount of weights, looks like it can also test the wind resistance of a big, boxy trailer
Along with the 3.6-litre Pentastar petrol motor and a new 2.0-litre turbo petrol, rumours indicate the VM Motori 3.0-litre V6 diesel from the Grand Cherokee will land under the bonnet of the Wrangler and Scrambler. So, that will sort out any shortcomings in power. Let’s just hope the rest of the chassis and suspension is up to the job.
