As part of its yearly Easter Jeep Safari in Moab, Utah, Jeep introduced seven new concepts, including the four-door “Crew Chief” pickup (pictured above). Though this design isn’t slated for production, Jeep has hinted at plans to steal some of its features for a four-door Wrangler pickup they will release in 2017.
The “Crew Chief” concept model features a 4-inch lift kit needed to fit the military style tires, a convertible top, two front bumpers and a badass logo stenciled on the back. It’s a V6 with cold air intake and new exhaust.
Jeep Chief Designer Mark Allen recently told Outside, “We’ve hidden some hints about what’s going on behind the scenes, right in front of you.”
Outside suspects that the general shape of the Crew Chief along with the six-foot bed and side-step integrated into the cab behind the rear door, are a few of those hints teased to us.
The Jeep Wrangler pickup is expected to launch in either 2017 or 2018. When it does, it will be interesting to see if it will live up to the long-awaited excitement and anticipation.
