It could be the last time we are seeing the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. After this edition, the crossover will come under the Scrambler nameplate. Well, that will sort things up. We have Wrangler and Wrangler JK Unlimited models. Now, with new naming, there won’t be confusions about it.
As its full name suggests, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited Sport 4×4 will bring more fun. Also, it is cheaper than the base Wrangler JL model. Other differences include powertrain choices and trim levels. Buyers will choose between sportier 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and more rugged JL crossover.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited specs
The Unlimited version of the JK model will use only one drivetrain. Buyers will have no choice but to accept a 3.6-liter V-6 engine as the only one. The mill is capable to produce 285 horses and 260 lb-ft of torque. It is the same setup as for the regular JL version, which also adds 2.0-liter four-pot unit to its offer.
Pentastar engine pairs either manual or automatic gearbox. The base solution is an eight-speed auto, while a six-pace shiftbox is optional. Towing capacity of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is about 3,500 pounds. Only compact Compass can tow less in the entire Jeep’s SUV lineup.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited diesel
The alternative for the V6- Pentastar engine could be diesel mill. With it, the crossover would be much more capable for the off-road drive. It could tow more. Whatsoever, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited diesel is not so sure yet for the upcoming season. But, the company is considering such outcome. This would be definitely a surprise for the entire industry.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited trim levels and options
For the next season, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will keep most of the trim levels of its predecessor. But, rumors are saying that one or two will be dropped and one new is about to be added.
Rubicon, Sahara, Sport editions
At this moment, the Wrangler JK offers ten different configurations. The most exciting is definitely Rubicon. For the next season, designers are preparing the replacement for Rubicon Recon as the most expensive SUV. Altitude and Sahara will be there again with a specific set of features. Side steps, 18-inch wheels, and leather seats as the optional features are making Sahara pretty attractive. The entry-level trim remains the Sport version, while slightly upgrades are coming with Sport S. Other variations are not certain for the next 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
All vehicles are available in two- and four-door configuration. Buyers will choose, and the difference in price is between $3,500 and $4,000. Also, buyers will have to add $1,000 for the automatic gearbox. Furthermore, in extra equipment, we can find towing package or features for maximum towing capacity. Leather upholstery, lighting, chrome details, are more upgrades for some of the trim levels that don’t carry these by default.
