It seems like we will have the same nameplate both on the truck and the SUV. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler is stealing the show next year because of its transformation to a pickup. However, the carmaker will keep it as the SUV as well. Also, it is possible that truck is going to be Scrambler, leaving the original name to the legendary crossover. Many questions are without answers about the truck. But, be sure that 2019 Wrangler will take a spot in the crossover lineup.
The off-road vehicle is famous for its styling and capabilities. Also, Jeep is offering many options. In 2019 we will see again Sahara and Rubicon trims. Furthermore, diesel and petrol drivetrain will be in the offer. Although the VW scandal causes the sale drop, there are still many fans of diesel engines looking for better torque. Interior is expecting modernization, while the outside, legendary radiator grille will dominate again on the front fascia.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Engines
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler will have two engines in the offer. Under the hood of the crossover, we can find a Pentastar unit as the base one. It is a 3.6-liter V-6 which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox by default. Another solution is to pick up an automatic transmission with eight gears.
The Pentastar engine is one of the most reliable mills the FCA is using. We can find it in Dodge and Chrysler vehicles, and it always delivers 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. There is no reason for changes on the 2019 Wrangler. Also, this crossover is the only vehicles that combine Pentastar powertrain with a manual transmission.
The versatility comes with a turbo-four alternative to the V-6. A 2.0-liter drivetrain delivers nearly the same output, but the cost of fuel consumption is lower. A four-pot is creating 270 ponies and almost 300 lb-ft of torque. However, if you are an old-school kind of a driver, then you won’t like transmission solution. This unit is using an only automatic gearbox. Of course, smaller displacement beats the V-6 best fuel economy numbers. Pentastar engine is not going to return more than 25 mpg. A four-cylinder could get this number in a combined drive.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel
The novelty for the next season will be 2019 Jeep Wrangler diesel. Engineers are planning to install a 3.0-liter V-6, which is going to return at least 250 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. This unit perfectly suits the Wrangler SUV. It will help the crossover to achieve better towing records. Also, higher twisting power will push the vehicle over tough obstacles and terrains, including hills and mud.
Jeep Wrangler Hybrid Comes in 2020
The company is not stopping here. As the entire industry is moving toward electrification and hybridization, the same we can expect from Jeep. Wrangler is not going to get a hybrid engine next year, but in 2019 we could see the concept of the future vehicle. Experts are pretty sure that we will see 2020 Jeep Wrangler Hybrid as the first crossover of this kind from the manufacturer.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Changes, Interior
Wrangler is a legendary crossover with a distinctive look. Its appearance is making it recognizable. Going through years we will find different details and parts on it, but the overall shape is pretty much the same. Boxy crossover with a removable roof is probably the first thing coming to your mind when we mention it. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler is not changing the most favorite features. Soft and hard tops are going to be options for closing the SUV. Minor changes to the vehicle won’t change the overall image. Whatsoever, the vehicle could come with more aluminum in its body, making it lighter, although dimensions remain the same.
Jeep Wrangler Trim Levels
Sport model is the entry-level SUV for the next season. Fans usually criticize the company because their base vehicles are not carrying too many options and features, which makes them cheaper than competitors. But, packed with modern accessories and equipment makes Sport S significantly more expensive. Again, four-door only Sahara and Rubicon tops the offer with a price of around $38,000.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
The Unlimited model of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler is special series of crossovers capable to solve any obstacle they find. These are more trail-rated vehicles with more options. A 4×4 drive system is standard for all trim levels. In 2018 we had 10 of Wrangler Unlimited SUVs. While the other models are more of urban vehicles, Unlimited will be a better solution if you like off-road fun and adventures. Special tuning will allow it move over almost any terrain and bumps you find on the path.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Prices
The entry-level 2019 Jeep Wrangler will appear as a Sport model and this one is going to cost about $29,000. Minor upgrades will boost its cost for around $1,000 compared to the current SUV. A four-door Rubicon goes over $40,000. Unlimited versions are much cheaper than the standard Wrangler. Its price starts from $25,000 and ends up at $45,000.
