Wrangler is one of the most capable off-road vehicles in the US. Its performance and styling are always drawing attention. We already got used to its boxy look, but it is what makes it so different. The next edition will add a stunning option. We can say now that we are expecting 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup. But, when the first rumors appeared, everyone thought it is a joke. Now, there are more and more of such reports, although the official statement is not available yet.
Is it likely to see 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup? Very probably. Although the FCA is still quiet. First of all, we can see many spy shots that indicate that vehicle is coming. Street tests are also showing that development is in advanced stages. It seems like the only thing that can stop Wrangler pickup truck is renaming. Whatsoever, even if it appears as a Scrambler, that is the vehicle we are expecting for two or more years.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup engines
Under the bonnet of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup will be a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine. This is the information that just awaits the confirmation. However, there are other possibilities, but the base truck will get enough power from this drivetrain. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, the Wrangler Pickup will return over 300 hp and about 270 lb-ft of torque. Gas mileage numbers are still unknown.
The second possibility is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. This one would definitely boost the mpg rating, but it is going to offer significantly less power. Even with a turbocharger, so-called Hurricane drivetrain is not going to produce over 250 hp.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup diesel
Finally, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup could appear as a diesel. In the beginning, only petrol drivetrains were mentioned in stories about the truck. Nowadays, these rumors claiming that Jeep Wrangler Pickup will get the power from a diesel unit are louder.
It should be a 3.0-liter V-6 with the ability to create 250 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Final numbers could vary, but this unit will boost overall towing capacity. We expect to see the Wrangler offering 5,000 pounds of hauling.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup styling
Sometimes, the Wrangler SUV without a top could seem like a truck. Without rear sets is a utility crossover. But, there are a lot more differences between such vehicle and a truck.
Spy shots are giving us some signals about the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup. Especially interesting is a tailgate. As a possibility for Ram 1500, the new truck could get a split-tailgate. Other details are not visible thanks to the heavy camo test mules are carrying.
We can see shapes of the radiator grille. Well, that is the first thing we could guess for any Jeep vehicle. Boxy design is there as well, while the spied interior is plain. That doesn’t give us any signs of what to expect in the cabin.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup cab configuration
There are two possibilities for 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup. The truck will definitely arrive as a four-door model. On the other hand, a two-door pickup is not sure yet. Now spy shots are available, while the rumors are only considering it as a possibility. However, the two-door cabin means longer bed and further development.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup release date
The FCA surprised everyone when they quietly launched the 2019 Ram 1500 at the NAIAS 2018. While everyone paid attention to the new Ford F-150 and its diesel drivetrain, we can say that Ram stole the show. And when fans expect a vehicle, as they want 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup, there is not a reason to suspect it will debut at the major stage – Detroit Auto Show 2019.
