Now the pickup truck segment is where most carmakers are focusing on. From behemoths like Ford to Luxury carmakers like Mercedes Benz- every company is trying to woo customers in the pickup segment. FCA cannot sit idle and let others run away with their share. So, the company is preparing to launch the new model 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck.
The upcoming truck’s prototype has been spied testing near Michigan in recent times. The images are now available online and these indicate strong similarities with the brand’s popular Wrangler SUV. It will be after 25 years that a Jeep-branded truck will hit the roads again!
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Exterior Look
The test model of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck has been spied testing couple times. The first time the model has been spotted camouflaged, but now we have some images that reveal whole pickup truck look. The boxy build and typical Jeep design cues are evident. The truck will have vertical 7 slat grille along with rounded headlamps. Furthermore, the model will also get a removable soft top.
However, the company may eventually offer both hardtop and removable soft-top in the final production model. The new model will be launched in several trims much like the original Wrangler SUV it is built on. Some off-road specific features may be present in the truck including tough skid plates and all season tires. It is not known if the doors and windshield will be removable or not.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Interior will be similar to the model Wrangler SUV
The cabin of upcoming 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck will be based on the Wrangler SUV as well. The cabin will be big enough to accommodate 5 adults. Since the truck will have a longer wheelbase than Wrangler SUV, legroom will not be a problem even for tall passengers. The amenities will be on par with trucks belonging to this segment but this is not going to be a luxury-oriented truck. Cargo capacity will be decent as well.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck will definitely get several safety features much like the latest Wrangler SUV lineup. It will also get a number of modern amenities. The new UConnect infotainment setup will be there with touch display unit. Optional features may include ambient lighting in cabin and premium sound system.

However, industry veterans think the engines used in the 2018 wrangler SUV lineup will be used after some alterations to suit segment usage needs. So, the popular 3.6-liter V6 engine can be there.
FCA may also offer a 3.0 L turbo diesel engine as an option. It is not known if the company will also offer a hybrid engine also. Fuel economy, as well as towing range, will be similar to what most midsized trucks offer.
