Wrangler or Scrambler, the question is now. One thing is sure – Jeep is preparing the new pickup truck. There are a lot of rumors whispering about the return. Spy shots are there as well. Pieces of evidence and hints from the company are coming every now and then. But, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT Pickup truck is still not official. Well, it is just a matter of time.
The latest rumors informed about the release date of the new pickup truck. According to this information, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT will be at dealerships next April. It seems like a diesel engine will be the main source of power. The new Wrangler truck will also offer petrol variants. Finally, there are many other options and questions which we will find out in less than a year.
2019 Jeep Wrangler JT or Jeep Scrambler
The company still didn’t clear this out. Is the nest pickup truck appearing as Wrangler or Scrambler? From day one gossip and experts are trying to explain this, but with no luck.
The first news appeared about the 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT Pickup Truck. Soon after that, we could hear that the new model could carry a different nameplate. Scrambler was a truck released during 1981-1985. Nowadays, many companies are returning their old names. Even Jeep will launch the new Grand Wagoneer, the SUV that used to be very popular. So, the return of the Scrambler is not impossible.
2019 Jeep Wrangler JT engines
Two petrol units and one diesel engine are being mentioned so far. Many sources are informing about the diesel mill as the main source of power.
We can guess it is a 3.0-liter turbo V-6 engine. Less power but more torque than the petrol units are guaranteed. We believe it will be good for at least 450 lb-ft of torque and around 200 hp.
There are two versions of stories when we speak of petrol units. One is claiming that 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT Pickup truck will use a four-cylinder turbo engine. According to other sources, the new model is coming with a V-6. A Pentastar is good for just under 300 horses. The turbo-four engine, also known as Hurricane, is going over this mark. Depending on tuning and turbocharger power, we could see it at 310-320 horses.
Here we have only estimations and guesses. Wrangler SUV is a pretty potent vehicle. But, the truck’s priority task is to tow. And we believe that 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT will be good for at least 5,000 pounds. With such capacity, the pickup will be able to compete in the market.

On the crossover, it is usual to place to be. Compared to its SUV sibling, the truck is not so boxy. Rounded edges are there, but the pickup is not similar to the one we saw on first renderings.
