The new Jeep Wrangler ute has been spied for the first time ahead of its debut some time next year. Visually, the new Wrangler will be evolutionary.

Instead, it seems possible that the US off-road specialist brand could branch out with a standalone utility vehicle that – while potentially sharing elements with the Wrangler – may stand alone as its very own model in the Jeep ranks...
