Rumors about pickup version of this well-known SUV are present for a very long time and it looks like it is finally on its way and that will comes as 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT. Those are the latest reports about this model, which should come as first pickup of this brand after so many years. As you probably know, there was a model called Scrambler, but that was several decades ago. This will be a completely new truck, which will come base on new generation of company’s legendary SUV, which will come next year. These models will ride on the same new platform and share big majority of parts, including design language. We expect its arrival somewhere in 2018.
2019 Jeep Wrangler JT design and features
As we already mentioned, this model is coming as something completely new from Chrysler’s division that produced only SUVs and crossovers so far. This will be something new, and there are big expectations from 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT. This model will ride on the same platform as upcoming Wrangler, which will come next year. Most of the parts will be shared. When it comes to styling, most of design solutions will be the same as on new Wrangler. We will see pretty much the same design language, especially at the front end. On the other end, 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT will naturally come with bed and other parts that characterize trucks. In this aspect, we believe that Jeep will borrow many solutions from Ram, which is Chrysler’s main truck manufacturer. The 2019 Wrangler JT will come probably in four-door configurations, but two-door body style is possible too.
2019 Jeep Wrangler JT engine
When it is about powertrain, it is hard to predict some more precise details, especially when it comes to output, efficiency, economy and those sort of things. We believe that 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT will use pretty much the same engines as new Wrangler. This basically means that base model should come in some V6 variant, and that will probably be company’s familiar 3.6 liter unit. Some smaller but more efficient, 4-cylinder engine should come as option. Finally, we expect to see diesel variant, which will probably use the same V6 engine that Grand Cherokee uses.
2019 Jeep Wrangler JT release date and price
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler JT should come somewhere in the fourth quarter of 2018. It is still hard to predict price, but some reports suggest that base models will go around 30.000 dollars.
