The all-new Wrangler will be introduced in a few weeks at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Though, the carmaker has released some information and official photos already, so we know what’s cooking behind the curtains. The information can explain in which direction will go the development of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck too because the workhorse sibling will reportedly share almost everything with the iconic SUV. However, we are not so sure how whether it’s going to use the same popular badge or something else. As far as we’ve heard, the all-new truck could use “Scrambler” nameplate, but that’s not official yet.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck: Design and Features
The future truck from Jeep has been spied several times in this year. Even though the carmaker used some heavy camouflage every time, we can easily conclude that the workhorse uses the same three-quarter design. The only difference between the SUV and truck will be the bed. The frame of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck will reportedly have around 33 inches longer body, so the footprint should match the current Chevrolet Colorado.
This is Wrangler’s sibling, so it has to offer some Wrangler-based features. The carmaker will not skip the chance to offer both hard- and soft-top roofs. The workhorse will host SUV’s latest front-end design. You can expect round LED headlights and restyled seven-slat grille, along with a unique and pronounced bumper. Inside, the pickup truck version of the popular off-roader will host an interesting dash design. The most interesting part of the new dash will be four HVAC round air vents. The retro design will be followed by an eight-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment and heated steering wheel.
Truck’s engine options will definitely mirror SUV’s. Meaning, the future Scrambler will use an updated version of the 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 as standard, as well as an all-new 2.0-liter turbocharged Hurricane as an option. We don’t know official output numbers at this point, but the latest reports suggest that both of them should deliver around 300 horsepower. We should see an oil-burner version too. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck diesel will use a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 which currently delivers 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of twist under the hood of the Ram 1500 diesel. All options will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Estimated Price and Arrival
Jeep’s all-new Wrangler-based truck will be introduced sometime next year. There is no pricing information so far, yet we are sure it’s going to start below $30,000.
