Last time when Jeep was producing a pickup truck was back in the 80s. Since then, there were several tries to make a new truck. We saw a few concept version, but none of them entered serial production. Finally, it looks like the new generation of the legendary Wrangler is about to get its pickup version. According to the latest reports 2019 Jeep Scrambler will share most of its parts with the iconic SUV in terms of both styling and mechanics. Expect to see the new model by the end of the year.
2019 Jeep Scrambler Design
When it comes to the base 2019 Jeep Scrambler specs, there is no doubt that the new model will have a lot in common with the new Wrangler. There is a new platform designed especially for these two model. Still, this truck will probably feature a little bit longer wheelbase, in order to accommodate two rows of seating and spacious enough bad. Though we are still waiting for some official details, the new model will most likely come in some kind of a double-cab body style. This model will be more a lifestyle than working truck, so single-row models won’t be in the offer.
When it comes to the styling, we are about to see a familiar design language. The new 2019 Jeep Scrambler will feature pretty much identical front end to the new generation of Wrangler, which didn’t change a lot through all these years. There is still a very familiar look, which received just minor tweaks for this redesign. On the other side, things from the B-pillar will be in a classic truck manner, featuring classic bed layout and similar things. Another possibility is to see a little bit different rear suspension design, which will be more appropriate for heavy loads.
How will the cabin of 2019 Jeep Scrambler look like?
When it comes to the 2019 Jeep Scrambler interior, we expect to see pretty much the same layout in the new Wrangler. That would mean the same waterproof dashboard, though the new truck definitely won’t feature an open-roof version. All in all, expect to see a very attractive, modern interior, full of quality materials. Expect a lot of tech features as well. Base models will come with a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth, an eight-speaker audio system, USB and aux ports etc. In higher trims, you can expect bigger touchscreen, smartphone integration etc.
Which safety features will be available in 2019 Jeep Scrambler?
Base models will come with a rearview camera only. Optional features will be things like parking sensors, cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring etc.
2019 Jeep Scrambler Engines
Under the hood, the 2019 Jeep Scrambler will be available in two gasoline engines, just like it is the case with the legendary SUV sibling. That would mean a familiar 3.6-liter V6 with a max output of 285 horsepower. Higher trims will be available with a new 2.0-liter turbo inline-four. This one features a similar amount of power but far better fuel economy and overall efficiency. In the future, we could see a diesel version as well. There is a familiar 3.0-liter V6 with a max output of 240 horses. When it comes to 2019 Jeep Scrambler towing capacity, this will probably be the most capable version. It is still hard to say some more precise numbers, but we expect something like 6.500-7.000 pounds of max towing capacity.
2019 Jeep Scrambler Release Date and Price
We expect to see the new 2019 Jeep Scrambler by the end of the year. When it comes to 2019 Jeep Scrambler MSRP, we expect that base models will go somewhere between 25.000-30.000 dollars.
