6 Jeep Pickup Trucks Over the Years

Jun. 22, 2016 By Tim Healey
Jeep has been around for a long time, and with buzz about a future Jeep pickup truck picking up (pun intended) steam, it’s time for a look back at what the brand has brought forth in the past.

Willys-Overland Truck
Jeep’s first truck was produced from 1947-1965 and was offered in four configurations – pickup, platform, chassis cab, or bare chassis. Initially introduced as a 1-ton truck with four-wheel drive, a ¾-ton version with two-wheel drive became available in 1949. The Willys was initially powered by a flathead engine that made 63 horsepower, that changed in 1951 when a four-cylinder that made 72 horsepower replaced the flathead. That followed a styling update for 1950. At the end of the truck’s run, it was powered by an inline six-cylinder engine. The transmission was a three-speed manual. Key options included a power takeoff, a pulley drive, an engine governor, and for 1957, a hydraulic hoist. Overall, more than 200,000 of these trucks were built.
