It’s been over 25 years now since Jeep last manufactured and sold a pickup truck. The Jeep Comanche was taken out of commission back in 1992, and while Jeep has occasionally teased people with concept pickups, they haven’t produced one
However, with the upcoming release of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler pickup, Jeep will be producing a pickup for the first time in decades.
It’s likely going to be based on the latest Jeep Wrangler design.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler pickup is expected to reflect the design of the latest Jeep Wrangler, which debuted at the end of 2017. That means it’ll likely be made from aluminum and will probably come standard with the 3.6-liter, 285 horsepower Pentastar V6 engine. It could also have a diesel option for those wishing to go that route.
It’s going to have a removable roof and removable doors.
Because the Jeep Wrangler will of course be a pickup, there was some speculation about whether it would come with a removable roof and removable doors like most Jeeps do. An image of the pickup being produced in a Jeep factory in Ohio captured earlier this year seemed to suggest that it will have a removeable roof and doors, but we can’t yet be sure.
It might have an official name.
Jeep isn’t ready to reveal the official name of the Wrangler pickup just yet. But there is a rumor going around that it could be called “Scrambler.”
It’s probably going to make its premiere in late 2018.
Jeep also isn’t ready to reveal when they’ll unveil the pickup just yet. But it wouldn’t be a surprise to see it show up at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. That would put it on course to hit Jeep dealerships next April.
