After years of waiting, the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck is finally on its way. Last time we saw such vehicle in Jeep’s lineup was more than three decades ago. Still, the company never gave up on this idea, so there were several concept cars in the past. Moreover, various aftermarket stores offer conversion packages for older-generation Wrangler SUVs. All this is a clear indicator that the company definitely needs such vehicle in its lineup. After the recent launch of new-generation Wrangler, it is time for its pickup truck version. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck is about to come by the end of the year and we are eagerly waiting to see how the 2019 Wrangler Pickup Truck will look like.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Design
In terms of base design characteristics, we definitely know what to expect. In this aspect, 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck specs will be close to the legendary SUV. It will ride on the same platform, though we could see a little bit longer wheelbase, which should provide both a decent-capacity bed and roomy interior. Also, some chassis modifications are expected too, where the new model should get a new rear suspension, adapted for heavy loads and better towing.
In terms of styling, we expect no surprises. The front end should be completely identical to the recently redesigned SUV. For this occasion, Wrangler kept the same design language that characterizes it for years, though there are few interesting details. The rest of the vehicle will follow this design approach, of course with the significantly different rear end, characterized by a classic truckish layout.
Which body style will 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck feature?
Though we still don’t have official information, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck will most likely come in some kind of a Double Cab version. A single-row version definitely won’t come, while a longer wheelbase indicates that we could see a Crew Cab version in the offer as well.
When it comes to the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck interior, we expect from the new truck to mirror the recently introduced SUV. To remind you, the new Wrangler came with significant improvements in this aspect. Not only that it features a new dashboard layout with a numerous new tech features, but also comes with new seats and other features that significantly improved the overall comfort. We can expect the same from the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck, though we will probably see less legroom for rear passengers.
In terms of equipment, expect to see a full load of standard features, with a bunch of both safety and entertainment hi-tech systems.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Powertrain
When it comes to 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck engine, we expect to see at least three units in the offer. Just like in the SUV, the base engine will be a well-known 3.6-liter Pentastar. It is good for about 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.
If you’re looking for better efficiency, go for a new 2.0-liter turbo inline-four. This unit is good for about 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, expect to see a familiar 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine. This one is available in models like Ram 1500 and Grand Cherokee. This unit delivers around 260 horses and 440 pound-feet of torque.
Will 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck feature a good towing capacity?
Although a body-on-frame SUV, the new Wrangler doesn’t offer spectacular numbers when it comes to towing. A max capacity goes around 3500 pounds, which is a quite lower number compared to other mid-size SUVs. Still, consider that 2018-year didn’t have a diesel engine in the offer, so the capacity will be improved for sure. When it comes to the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck, we expect improvements. Not only because of a diesel engine but because of chassis modifications too. It is hard to predict more precise numbers, though we are sure the new truck won’t be able to match Colorado’s 7.700 pounds or numbers of other mid-size trucks on the market.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck release date and price
When it comes to 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck release date, we expect to see the new model by the end of 2018. Base versions should go around 30.000 dollars.
