What To Expect Of The Jeep Truck to Release in 2019

It’s the news Jeep fans everywhere have been waiting for- the release of the long-awaited Jeep Wrangler Pickup truck. According to AutoNews, Jeep dealers were informed that the Wrangler Pickup would be in showrooms from April 2019, meaning production will probably begin towards the end of this year.

All of us at Dixie 4 Wheel Drive are super excited to hear this news and we can hardly wait to get our hands on the actual vehicle. This has been a very long time coming, considering Jeep hasn’t released a pickup truck for 26 years since the Jeep Comanche was phased out in 1992. Since then, they’ve just been teasing us with different concept trucks.

What do we know about the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Truck?

For starters, we know that the widely anticipated 2019 Wrangler truck has been in the works for a while. Initially, Sergio Marchionne (late Fiat Chrysler CEO) confirmed its existence in early 2016. This was followed later by an announcement by Jeep CEO Mike Manley that a pickup was due to be released in 2017. We hope that these delays mean that folks over at Jeep are testing and retesting the truck to ensure that it exceeds all our expectations.

Now to some of the details we have:

  • It might have a cool throwback name- apparently, the new truck might be called the Jeep Scrambler, a name that was last used on the Jeep CJ-8.

  • All we have right now are spy photos and digital renderings of the truck. Although a few models have been spotted on the road in Michigan, the actual look is still under wraps and we only have the spy photos to go on.

  • According to the information and photos going around, the pickup truck will be based on the JL Wrangler. This, combined with the photos, allows us to infer a few things. We expect the new 2019 Jeep truck to have the same lightweight aluminum body as the JL and a sleek, sharply-designed interior featuring the awesome UConnect Infotainment system. It’ll also probably be equipped with Chrysler’s Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine which delivers 285-hp.

It’s also expected to have a trim profile, spotting a kinked grille with the signature 7 slots, a ladder frame as well as solid axles. Just like regular Wrangler, this new truck is expected to have a removable roof and doors and it might even come with a fold-down windshield as well.

We Can’t Wait For The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Truck

As Jeep aficionados here at Dixie 4 Wheel Drive, we can’t wait to see what goodies the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup truck has for us from the suspension components to the drivetrain, engine, tires and interior.

Being a company that specializes in custom 4×4 builds, we also can’t wait to see which Jeep upgrades and modifications will be rolled out for this pickup truck. Next year can’t come soon enough!
