It’s been a long time since Jeep released a pickup, but with the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup, that’s poised to change. Jeep has teased car owners with the prospect of a new pickup for years now. There was the Gladiator Concept in 2005, along with other concept cars that only served to tantalize pickup lovers.
In 2016, however, it was confirmed: Jeep would offer a Next-Generation Wrangler pickup truck. As the release date draws closer, excitement is mounting and Jeep fans are lapping up every tantalizing production detail.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup – Unique Design
Renderings of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup have hit the internet, and its exterior exceeded expectations. It resembles a New-Generation Wrangler with a truck bed attached, but this truck also has a few unique details all its own. Angled grill slats and LED running lamps to give the exterior a rustic appeal, and the boxy frame evokes the classic Jeep aesthetic.
It will have many things in common with the classic Wrangler, including similar front fenders, bumper, and windshield. Details new to the pickup include a horizontal crease the runs below the windows and an angle-cut truck bed.
The door design may also get a makeover. Instead of push-button units, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup may use pull-style door handles. The truck will most likely be available in two exterior options: two-door and four-door. Pickup truck aficionados are particularly excited about the two-door option, as it would combine the utility of a pickup with the off-road capabilities of classic Wranglers.
To boost lagging fuel economy, the Wrangler may be constructed out of an aluminum-intensive body. Despite this shift, however, the pickup will retain the Wrangler’s beloved body-on-frame construction.
As far as the interior goes, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup will likely get the same upgrade as the classic Wranglers. They will likely come equipped an updated UConnect infotainment system by FCA.
Engine Specs of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup
Current Wrangler models use a Pentastar V6 with 3.8-liter, also known as the Hurricane engine. It’s likely that the new pickup truck will use a similar engine; the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 305 horsepower. This engine will come with an 8-speed transmission and 268 pound-feet of torque. Diesel lovers are also in luck. Buyers may be able to choose a turbo diesel V6 engine with start/stop functions. A hybrid powertrain is another option.
Release Date and Rumors
The MSRP and release date of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup are not yet known. When this pickup hits the market, however, it’s sure to fly off the lot. This pickup, with its unique Wrangler details, will be unlike any other pickup truck on the market. The Wrangler lovers will certainly enjoy this pickup.
