The EPA has not released fuel consumption for the mild-hybrid V6 at the time of writing, though leaked document from a Canadian dealer could provide a clue. In the case of Halftone Ram, the pickup is cited at 27 miles per gallon highway. As a small boost, eTorque replaces the traditional generator of the engine with a belt-driven motor generator connected to a 48-volt vehicle electrical system.
In addition to the Pentastar, the Scrambler is also listed with the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 in a leaked document. Performance and fuel consumption are currently unknown, but it is expected that more torque and efficiency than the Pentastar are expected.
Depending on the equipment level (base and premium), the Scrambler can pull up to 6,900 kg (2,948 kg) kilogram). The payload ranges from 1,100 to 1,400 pounds (499 to 635 kilograms). In terms of curb weight, the Wrangler-style pickup in base configuration with the Pentastar V6 is expected to tip the scales at 4,615 pounds (2,121 kilograms). This guy is not Ram, but for those who want to have their workhorse soaked in the Jeep spirit, the upcoming scrambler is not bad at all.
U.S. Dealers will get the JT Scrambler in April 2019, which means it will be another year before the first Jeep pickup since the 1992 MJ Comanche.
