The upcoming 2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup is coming to the markets and some spy shots are already available. The Jeep is keeping it quiet when it comes to more specific details. However, the latest information is saying the new Wrangler pickup will ride on a V6 gasoline and diesel engines. Furthermore, both 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic transmissions will be in the offer. This pickup will ride on a lengthened frame of the Wrangler Unlimited JL.
The 2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup will most likely arrive with both two and four-door versions and the interior will be very pleasing. We are yet to find out the specification of the cargo bed, and how much this truck will tow. Jeep is implementing its latest design language to all of its vehicles, so expect plenty of weight-saving materials.
2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup look wild and elegant
As we already wrote, cargo bed is still a mystery for everyone. We believe Jeep will deliver a bed similar to the bed in Toyota Tacoma. That means more plastic materials in order to save weight. Cargo equipment will also include numerous storage boxes for sure. The rear bumper now comes with a step and a holder for the license plate. The newest 2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup will utilize the same design as the Wrangler or Scrambler.
That means the front end will look wild and elegant. Literally, everything from the grille and headlights to the hood and front bumper will be exactly the same. According to the latest speculations, Wrangler pickup will arrive with two and four-door variants. Besides that, the roof will offer two or three options. A three-piece black top is the first option and the second option comes with the body-colored top. Just as before, the windshield is a folding flat.
2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup interior features
The interior will be the same as in the SUV version of Wrangler Unlimited JL. Of course, the layout will be different but most of the design and features will remain. That includes the infotainment system, dashboard, and the seats.
However, some features will be better than on the SUV model, like switchgear that sports more upscale materials. The cabin holds plenty of soft-touch surfaces and a lot of buttons. An 8.4-inch Uconnect system touchscreen is standard and this unit is user-friendly and the graphics are great.
2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup powertrain
Another department where the SUV and pickup truck models will share components is the engine department. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup will borrow a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that can produce 296 HP. This engine will be compatible with the hybrid system that will arrive in the near future. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 will remain but it will get an upgrade. The powertrain delivers 320 HP and 280 lb-ft of torque. Just as most of the pickup trucks, the Wrangler pickup will also get its diesel variant.
It is a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel that generates 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of twists. This engine will be optional and is recommendable for those who are preferring off-roading adventures, and is the perfect option for hauling and towing. All three drivetrains will use an 8-speed automatic ZF transmission. The four-wheel-drive setup comes as standard and those who want manual transmission will have an option to buy this type of gearbox.
2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup price and release date
The approaching 2020 Jeep Wrangler pickup will cost around $35,000. The pricing is not available yet and this pickup truck will hit the markets in the second half of 2019.
