Not long ago, we heard early details about the upcoming Jeep® Wrangler Pickup. Jeep® plans to build the highly anticipated truck version of the iconic Jeep® Wrangler in our neighboring state of Ohio, but dealerships like Linwood CDJR won’t be seeing the truck arrive until projected showroom dates in early 2019.
Recent spy shots of the 2019 Jeep® Wrangler Pickup are enough to satiate some curiosity for the time being. The Jeep® Wrangler Pickup—which, according to rumors, might be named the Scrambler—was spotted sporting a generous bed and a roomy crew cab. Its body largely resembles the newest JL Wrangler.
With an exterior that pays homage to the JL Wrangler, the new truck will likely have an interior similar to the JL Wrangler’s, which means smart Uconnect® systems, premium materials, and a balance between comfort and durability.
Engine offerings will also likely resemble the JL Wrangler, which currently offers a 270-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four-cylinder and a 285-horsepower 3.6-liter V6. Jeep® has plans to add hybrid options to the JL Wrangler, which could mean hybrid powertrains for the Scrambler.
More information about the 2019 Jeep® Wrangler Pickup should become available in early 2019, when the new model will likely debut at the Detroit Auto Show. We’re looking forward to seeing it!
