2019 Jeep Wrangler Might Finally Get Pickup Version


At the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year, head of Jeep, Mike Manley confirmed that there would be a new Wrangler model for 2019, and it will be … a PICKUP!

That may not be a shock to you; after all, the Wrangler pickup has actually been seen out testing in full camouflage, but whether you know about it or not, there is no denying that the public are waiting for this model with eager anticipation – we’ve been waiting for a new pickup from Jeep since they last had a one which was over twenty years ago.

No details have been released – aside from the spy shots, nothing is known about the new pickup, but this is what we think …

2019 Jeep Wrangler Release date

We are fully expecting this new model to be the 2019 Jeep Wrangler. It will have a debut in the earlier part of 2018, with a full roll out to dealers in the later part of 2018 – end of the third quarter at the earliest.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Price

This is perhaps the most difficult to predict; it’s a completely new model in a relatively unknown market, but given what it’s offering, you’d have to bet around a starting price of at least $28,000.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Redesign and Changes

OK, so this is perhaps the easy part … redesign? Just a little!

So, we know that the 2019 Wrangler will be a pickup, the bed size looks like a usable 5’ or so (at least) which means it’s going to be practical – more than just a show model.
Signature styling accents are incorporated; flat roof and the seven slat grille, but that’s about all the detail we can see from the pictures. No doubt that Jeep will have a fancy, leather upholstery and fully loaded flagship, but we think that on the whole, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck will be more utilitarian – an actual worker.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Interior

This part is vague – it is likely that interior will be slightly updated in the same way as the all-new Jeep Compass scheduled to be released in 2017.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Specs

It’s thought that Jeep have three powertrain choices lined up – a 4-cylinder turbo charged Hurricane motor, V6 gas motor and an EcoDiesel. Despite diesel not really being America’s choice for fuel, the diesel Jeep has always been a good seller. We have no specs or figures for any of the motors yet, but fair money says that a minimum of 180 BHP will be in the base model.

The mechanicals should be solid axles at the front and rear and body on frame construction, using lightweight material to try and keep economy sensible, equally, for that reason, we’d expect to see an 8-speed auto transmission.

The model range, as before, will consist of traditional short-base 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sport and Unlimited which has 5 doors.
