It’s not the first time we’ve seen the Wrangler JL pickup, but it’s the first time we’ve seen it running around on public roads. Although well cladded with yards of vinyl wrapping, there’s no hiding the distinctive and iconic shape. There’s no question what we’re looking at here. This is a configuration Wrangler enthusiasts have been pleading for and anticipating for decades, and by the looks of things, it’s not far away. The pickup variant of the JL Wrangler is expected to follow the core two and four-door SUV models by approximately a year, making the odds are that this will be a 2019 model.

  SPIED: 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in La La Land Spied testing recently in Los Angeles was the upcoming Chevrolet Silverado 1500, likely due for the 2019 model year. The redesigned pickup will probably undergo several changes compared to the current truck, including a probable switch to aluminum bodywork, a la the 2015 F-150. We recently spotted the same (or a similar) truck near our El Segundo offices, though we suspected it was a GMC at the time.

The photos don’t show any major changes or surprises of the expected configuration of a four-door crew cab and a relatively short bed. As cool and desirable as a Wrangler pickup will be to many, there are some inevitable tradeoffs for the pickup configuration. The longer wheelbase will mean a less-favorable breakover angle, and the bed overhang over the rear wheels will result in a less-optimal departure angle. However, it appears the rear bumper and bed height are still good enough to offer plenty of off-road agility and capability. The JL pickup comes at an interesting time, just as Chevrolet has introduced the surprisingly capable Colorado ZR2 and an all-new Ford Ranger is being readied for the U.S. market. We would love nothing more than a three or four-truck shootout between the JL pickup, the ZR2, the Tacoma TRD Pro, and the new Ranger, possibly with a Raptor-like off-road package. Are you as excited about the JL pickup as we are?

Spied 2018 BMW i8 Spyder Looks Production Ready .
Years after the arrival of the coupe, the much-delayed BMW i8 Spyder appears to be ready to make its entrance, at least if this prototype that was recently spied cruising German city streets is any indication. Visually, there are a few subtle changes in the grille, side skirts, and rear. Given that the i8 is about due for a facelift, it's not certain if these are specific to the convertible.The key difference is, of course, the roof, which is now made out of a fabric material. It's styled to look more like targa-top than a traditional convertible, with the canvas roof likely sliding beneath the rear cover..One open question are the i8 Spyder's doors.
