We heard many rumors so far, but now it’s official – a truck version of company’s popular SUV will come in near future, and many predict that it will comes as 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup truck.

After many decades, we will see a pickup truck in Jeep’s lineup. So far, we don’t have many details about it, but it is clear that 2019 Wrangler Pickup truck will come based on popular SUV, which is coming completely redesigned next year.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup truck design and features
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup truck will be a completely new vehicle in brand’s lineup. We will see a pickup truck in Jeep’s offer after so many years. So far, there isn’t much information about upcoming model, and we must rely primarily on rumors and predictions. New model will come heavily based on next-generation Wrangler, featuring same platform, design language, interior etc. It is pretty much for sure that new model will come in some kind of Double Cab body style, but we won’t be surprised to see some other variant in offer too. There are even some reports that 2019 Wrangler Pickup truck will take inspiration from aftermarket 2013 AEV Brute Double Cab model, which came based on previous generation of this popular SUV. In this case, we will see a little bit longer wheelbase compared to Wrangler SUV, which will provide decent bed size too.

According to some sources, it will be a new hi-output inline-four engine, nicknamed “Hurricane”. Some sources suggest that max output will be over 300 horsepower. Finally, there will be a diesel unit in offer. This model will also come with completely new engine, according to rumors. When it comes to transmission, all engines should come in pair with new 8-speed automatic.
