It’s been a while since we were talking about the most exciting update in Jeep’s lineup. Wrangler pickup truck is definitely one of the stars of the upcoming season. While we still trying to figure out if it will come with that nameplate, or Scrambler, new details about the vehicle are coming. The first piece of information is about its release date, and others are showing us the final lineup of engine options. Nevertheless, these are not 100 percent confirmed, but we will check favorites for the main drivetrain for 2019 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck.
Why is this model so important? Truck industry is one of the toughest in the US. It is not easy to make a breakthrough. Jeep knows that since it discontinued its last series of pickups in 1992. Wrangler also had its truck editions, but the final one was 1986 year model of Scrambler CJ-8. Now, the company that works under Fiat-Chrysler corporation is bringing this kind of vehicle back as 2019 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Release Date News
It is unofficially confirmed that 2019 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck is coming to dealerships in April. Unfortunately, not the first one starting in next few days, but next year. Whatsoever, this is good news for all the fans. First of all, the vehicle is confirmed, and second, we don’t have to wait too long.
Before the appearance in salons, the 2019 Wrangler pickup truck will have a show-off. Since sales start are set for April, the perfect date for premiere would be, let’s say, three months before that. And what is happening every January? Not a bad plan FCA. We have the first model for the 2019 NAIAS.
A Step Closer to Final Engine Lineup
As we predicted before, the diesel drivetrain will be part of 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck engine lineup. Experts managed to find out that 3.0-liter EcoDiesel will be under the hood, but not as the base unit. Diesel is optional, while there are going to be two more petrol choices. Nevertheless, none of them can match diesel’s 445 pound-feet of torque.
Petrol Engines for 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck
Gasoline drivetrains lack twisting power, but the hp rating is on their side. The base pickup truck will use a 2.0-liter turbo engine. With it, 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck can deliver 270 horsepower.
The other confirmed powertrain is larger Pentastar V-6 engine. This 3.6-liter unit is capable to produce nearly 300 horses. All other details about transmission and gas mileage are still only speculations. We expect soon to hear further details about the new Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck.
Spy Shots Unveil More
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck is being tested for a while. However, everyone in the company is still quiet about it. The test mule broke another rumor about the vehicle. We were wondering if the pickup truck is coming exclusively as a two-door model. The spied vehicle had a four-door body, so we can stop with speculations about it. Whatsoever, it is not official yet, but it would be a real disappoint if FCA cuts a four-door truck.
