While everyone is talking about the truck, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler crossover is somehow in its shadow. But, when we last checked, this model was an SUV. And quite popular. So, there is no reason for switch between categories. Wrangler will definitely get its pickup version, and it will probably be named Scrambler. Existing title is reserved for a crossover, and it will stay so.
What to expect from a new model? From what we could find out from sources, edition for 2019 season will bring cosmetic changes. After a big redesign for 2018, there is no need for big moves. People in Jeep will patiently wait and listen to critics of the upcoming model, so 2019 Wrangler could be even better. Also, most attention is on the development of truck version.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Performance
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler is going to keep the current engine lineup. The only drivetrain is a 3.6-l V-6 VVT with 24 valves. This unit can deliver 285 hp for all trim levels. Power is sent through a 6-speed manual transmission. Also, there is a 5-speed manual gearbox as an optional. Buyers will also be able to pick between 3.21 and 3.73 axles ratios for base models. Although there are rumors about the possible turbocharged 2.0-l 4-cylinder unit, it is unlikely to happen for 2019 Wrangler.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Trim Levels – Rubicon, Sahara
The last edition of Jeep Wrangler had 13 models in its lineup. For 2018 and 2019 we won’t see them all at once. Nevertheless, two are certain. Sahara and Rubicon were the most popular crossovers. Sport is probably the entry-level model, which will again be slightly upgraded. Two additional versions of Rubicon were priced the most. However, for 2019 Jeep Wrangler we can see most of the ex-lineup, but under different names.
Options, Packages, Features
Every trim level of the Wrangler offers plenty of features and extra packages for upgrade. Buyers can tune hitches and connector wiring. Also, technology package includes a leather steering wheel with more command buttons. The USB port is part of Uconnect infotainment system. Voice commands will increase safety.
For styling, Jeep offers LED headlights and fog lights. Also, chromed exhaust tips, fuel filter door, and tail lamp guards are boosting overall appearance. Fuel filter door can come in the black variant, as well as side steps.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Future and Price
As we already mentioned, when you try to find info about future models of 2019 Jeep Wrangler, you find most of them about the truck. This is a big news, but Jeep will continue to deliver a crossover in next few years for sure. New generation starting with the 2018 year model guarantees that.
How much will Jeep Wrangler cost?
Pricing of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler SUV depends on trim level. Entry-level Sport model will keep the base price under $25,000. This is a good price for a compact crossover. However, this classic vehicle will have upper trims, whose price is going over $40,000. Similar is with other models, Renegade and Grand Cherokee, which also have plenty of trims and options.
