The Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck will be available in 2019. Jeep hasn’t made a truck since 1992, but that’s all about to change. According to R&T, in a 2016 interview with The Detroit News at the Detroit Auto Show, Jeep CEO Mike Manley said that the Wrangler pickup would arrive in late 2017, following the debut of the next-generation JL Wrangler.
Unfortunately, Jeep has since delayed pickup production until late 2019, nearly two years after the next-generation Wrangler is set to arrive. Manley says that he wants to make sure there are no issues with Wrangler SUV production before Jeep starts building the pickup. Both Wrangler models will be built at Jeep’s Toledo, Ohio plant, which is undergoing a $700 million upgrade to prepare for the new vehicles.
There’s no definitive proof how the truck will look but the photo above, and below (via JL Wrangler Forums), seem to be regarded as pretty accurate.
Rumor has it the truck could have a 300-HP Turbo Four-Cylinder engine. Due to Jeep’s popularity in the States, and how well pickups sell, it’s believed this truck is going to sell like crazy. Cost? Nobody knows for sure, but thought is around $30K plus to start.
So, who’s ready to drive one?
