The 2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV should be a new addition to the company’s lineup. Believe it or not, Chrysler currently has only three vehicles in the offer. Two of them are minivans and one is a full-size sedan. Such lineup seems good if you want to kill the brand. If your intentions are different, you will definitely want to be more up to date. Considering that crossovers dominate today’s market, that is definitely a kind of vehicle that this carmaker needs. According to the latest reports, the new model will come in about a year or year and a half. So far, we know that the new model will be based on the familiar Pacifica minivan. For more details, we will have to wait for some more time. Until then, let’s see what rumors say about 2019 Aspen SUV.
2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV Design
In terms of base design characteristics, the new 2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV will be based on Pacifica. The previous Aspen was a truck-based SUV, first and only under Chrysler’s badge. However, it wasn’t produced for too long and never managed to get some decent sales numbers. On the other side, the new version will come in a modern manner. It will get a car-like, unibody platform, which will provide much better driving characteristics. It will ride on the company’s Compact US Wide platform, the same that underprints current-generation Pacifica, as well as some other models from FCA.
This would mean that 2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV is going to be a mid-size crossover. Latest reports suggest three rows of seating as a standard feature, which is pretty much a must for mid-size SUV on today’s market. In terms of styling, we expect to see a similar front end to the Pacifica, though with a few unique details. Most likely, the new crossover will feature similar contour to Grand Cherokee.
On the inside, we expect to see quite a premium approach. This model will be nominally a luxury crossover, though we are pretty sure it will coquette between premium and mainstream cars, something that Buick does in past several years. This would mean a lot of quality materials, premium styling and a pretty long list of standard equipment. As we’ve already mentioned, the new 2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV will feature three rows of seating already in base models.
2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV Engine
We expect no surprises under the hood of 2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV. Most mid-size cars of FCA Group rely on a familiar 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 gasoline engine. We expect to see the same version of the engine as in Pacifica. This would mean a max output of 287 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. In terms of fuel economy, expect similar numbers to the minivan sibling. This would mean around 22 miles per gallon in a combined ride.
Are we going to see 2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV Hybrid?
Most likely, yes. The new 2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV should offer the same plug-in hybrid powertrain that can be found under the hood of Pacifica. It uses the same V6 gasoline engine, which comes along with a 16-kWh battery pack. Compared to a gasoline model, this one offers superior fuel economy, which goes all away up to 84 mpg on a highway. You can also count on 33 miles of all-electric range.
2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV Release Date
We are still waiting for some more precise information about 2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV release date. At the moment, most reports suggest its arrival in about 12-18 months.
How much will 2019 Chrysler Aspen SUV cost?
Though it seems too early to speculate about the price, some estimation of the base price suggests 35/40.000 dollars.
