Although everyone wanted to see it next year, the delay will make a Jeep’s first truck in a while as a 2019 season model. However, it is not the end of the world, since fans have to be patient just for a few more months. The 2019 Jeep Scrambler will be the name we will look for in headlines during 2018.
It’s been a while since we are listening to rumors about Jeep’s truck. According to this information, we could expect it as Wrangler JL. But, its official name is Scrambler, and it is definite. With it, we will have a throwback to the last pickups from this company, the CJ-8 from the 80’s.
2019 Jeep Scrambler Engine and Performance
Various sources are indicating that 2019 Jeep Scrambler is going to carry a 3.0-l turbo-diesel V-6 drivetrain. It is almost certain this is going to be the main source of power for a new truck. On the other hand, engineers in Jeep are weighing other solutions. One of them could be bigger 3.6-l Pentastar V-6. However, it if it is good for Wrangler, it doesn’t mean the powertrain will perform great with 2019 Scrambler. Another option is a 2.0-l Hurricane 4-cylinder petrol engine with turbocharger. This mill is capable to deliver the massive output of nearly 300 hp.
How much can 2019 Scrambler tow?
Specs details, such as mileage and towing capacity are still unknown. Jeep Scrambler is going to be potent, but exact numbers will come with release statement. Nevertheless, it doesn’t forbid experts to make predictions. To be competitive in mid-size pickup class, the truck will have to tow at least 5,000 pounds. Nevertheless, fans believe the turbo-diesel unit will be capable to achieve a towing capacity of 6,500 lbs.
2019 Jeep Scrambler Spy Shots
The 2019 Jeep Scrambler is spotted, but with heavy camouflage that covers entire truck. Fans can see it is longer than original CJ pickup ever was. However, Jeep is going to offer different cab configurations and bed size for its 2019 Scrambler. So, these spy shots could be just a peek what we can expect to see.
Design and Styling
Spy photos caught Scrambler in testing. The truck will borrow a removable top system from its sibling Wrangler. That will be a soft or hard roof, with different color options. A 3-piece hard top is in body color or black. The pickup has big side mirrors and offensive front bumper. The 4-door truck was spied. But, we are sure that smaller cab configuration will be in the lineup.
Latest Spy Photos Unveil Even More
Recently, we had a chance to see the new 2019 Jeep Scrambler again. However, now more details were available. The truck’s rear end is getting a final shape. Or at least FCA wants us to believe so. A flip-down tailgate is the only certain thing with a four-door layout. A two-door configuration still bugs all fans of this company. The front fascia and a cabin will be almost the same as for the Wrangler SUV.
2019 Jeep Scrambler Price and Competition
We believe 2019 Jeep Scrambler pickup truck will cost around $40,000. However, on MSRP will affect many other details. Pentastar engine will probably raise the price, as well as higher trim models with 4-door configuration. We still don’t know anything about interior and infotainment system. Price sometimes heavily depends on a number of features and amount of equipment in the vehicle.
The Jeep Scrambler is going to take a spot in the mid-size truck segment. There, big names are Toyota Tacoma and Chevy Colorado. Nevertheless, with so long waiting for a new pickup truck from Jeep, we are sure that Scrambler will cause a lot of interest. But, the company must use a kick start as a swing for further development. Now it is especially important since Ford brought one more rival after the return of Ranger.
