Jeep Wrangler Pickup to Launch in Late 2018 and Hit Showrooms in 2019

The Jeep brand has a long continuous legacy stretching back to World War II. It has been gentrified since then and has not had a true pickup version. Fans and users have been hankering for a pickup and their wish has been granted.

Regarding the pickup, the Ohio automobile expert Myers Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram understands that a Wrangler pickup will create its own niche away from the standard SUV crowd.

2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup

The evolution of the Jeep Wrangler is finally headed to a model that users have long requested. There will be a 2019 Wrangler pickup. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles confirmed that the pickup will start appearing in showrooms on April 2019. It is expected to debut late 2018 or early next year.

The Wrangler pickup will be made at the Toledo, Ohio factory’s South plant. The Wrangler SUV is being manufactured at Toledo’s North plant. Early images show that the soon to be released Wrangler pickup will have a crew cab, with options for a hard or soft top. It will also be 33 inches longer than the Wrangler SUV to accommodate the longer bed.

Mild Hybrid

The Wrangler pickup looks much like the JL Wrangler from the front up to the crew cab. The pickup will have a flip-down tailgate. The current engine choices for the JL Wrangler are a 3.6 liter V6 and a 2.0 liter turbo-4, coupled with either a 6-speed manual or an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The turbo engine is expected to be a mild hybrid, specifically an Alfa Romeo engine rated at 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. It is a mild hybrid with a 48-volt electric system that cuts the gas engine while coasting and while at a complete stop. Power is transferred to the electric motor while the gas is off. The JL Wrangler comes with options for a standard 2-door or a 4-door. The Wrangler pickup has a crew cab, but a standard 2-door may also be offered.

Jeep Wrangler fans will see a new model in the Wrangler pickup, which is a deviation from the traditional Wrangler SUV design. They are very excited to see this beast in showrooms in 2019.
