DETROIT — Spy photographers have captured the first public images of Fiat Chrysler’s upcoming midsize pickup based on the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The pickup will follow the redesigned Wrangler SUV, which FCA plans to begin producing in November in Toledo. Production is scheduled for the current Jeep Wrangler line at FCA’s Toledo, Ohio, assembly complex after the plant receives a new paint shop next year. The photos indicate that the as-yet-unnamed pickup will get the Wrangler’s design cues and off-road chops. The pickup is projected to be at U.S. dealerships in 2019.
according to A rendering of what the 2018 Jeep Wrangler could look like via JL Wrangler ForumsOne of the most anticipated vehicles of the year is the next-generation Jeep Wrangler, but a big question mark is what engines it will have. Spy photos appeared to show a diesel 2018 Wrangler Rubicon out testing in July 2016, so this isn’t a big stretch. The anonymous tip claimed to show the details on the JL-generation 2018 Jeep Wrangler launch, which would confirm a lot of the rumors we’ve heard over the months if true. AdvertisementIncluded in the tip are all of the 2018 Wrangler’s potential different body options:The typical two- and four-door configurationsA black soft topA tan soft topA black hard topA body-color hard topAnd a power-retractable top. The 2018 Wrangler has also been rumored to have a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that makes nearly 300 horsepower for over a year now, but we have not yet heard any horsepower specifics or whether either of the four-cylinder Jeeps will be turbos.
Next Generation Jeep Wrangler Could Offer 6 Engine Options
Speculations have been whirling about the next-generation Jeep Wrangler. The current 3.6L Pentastar engine is a vast improvement over the previous 3.8L V6 found in Wranglers of old, so an updated version of it could be even better. The report from Jalopnik claims that the Wrangler could have up to six engine options, blowing the current generation JK, which only offers one, out of the water. It’s rumored to sport a diesel engine option for the first time in model history, and according to an anonymous Jalopnik tipper, it’ll have even more choices to pick from. The list of potential powerplants goes as follows:Two versions of the 3.6L Pentastar V63.0L and 2.2L diesel enginesTwo versions of the 2.0L four cylinder.
