The arrival of long-awaited 2019 Jeep Wrangler is finally getting closer. According to the latest reports, the new generation of the legendary SUV will have its premiere this November, while the production should start early next year.
The new generation of this legend is definitely one of the most anticipated models for the next year. Simply, this SUV has so many fans, desperate to see a replacement of the current, pretty outdated version. So far, we have seen three generations of the Wrangler. The current model is present since 2007, which means for a full decade.
The new generation will bring many improvements. We are about to see a much better version of the SUV, which will continue in a traditional body-on-frame manner, but with significant improvements in all aspects. The 2019 Wrangler will ride on a new architecture, get a completely new styling, interior design and engine lineup.
2019 Jeep Wrangler redesign
The fourth generation of the legend is almost ready for the premiere that will happen in November. We are about to see various changes, which will bring a significant improvement in terms of performances, especially when it comes to fuel economy. The new model will get a completely new platform. Although it will continue with the traditional body-on-frame construction, the new architecture will utilize some lightweight materials. However, a huge majority of the new SUV will still feature steel, while aluminum will take some smaller part. Even this modest aluminum use will provide important weight savings, which will along with new more efficient engines provide much better economy.
2019 Jeep Wrangler styling
When it comes to styling, 2019 Jeep Wrangler will come in the way we expected. There will be no radical changes and we will see a pretty familiar face. The famous shape is here, although there are several new details too. The current test version still wears a camouflage, but we can see parts at the front, such as new grille design and new round headlights. Compared to the outgoing generation, it will feature a little bit less massive body and more athletic stance. In some way, it will look more like the original model than the third generation. So far, we don’t know the exact specs when it comes to body styles, but there will be several variants for sure. Expect to see versions with hard top, soft roof, two or four doors etc. Also, you probably know that the new truck version is on the way.
2019 Jeep Wrangler engines
The new generation will bring few new engines in the offer. The company put a great effort to improve fuel economy on the new model. So, besides the use of aluminum in SUV’s body, there will be new engines too. We will see a powertrain lineup that will consist of new inline-four gasoline turbo engine. A turbocharged diesel V6 engine will also come, but its arrival will probably happen a little bit later. Despite these new efficient units, base models will most likely continue with the familiar 3.6-liter Pentastar. This is one of the most used engines in the company and we expect to see several tweaks for this occasion, which will provide more power, but better efficiency too.
When it comes to the transmission, there is a new 8-speed automatic gearbox, as well as proven 6-speed manual. In some distant future, we could see an electrified version as well.
2019 Jeep Wrangler release date and price
It is official that the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler will have its premiere at the upcoming LA Auto Show, which will happen this November. On the other side, serial production will most likely begin in early 2018. The new model will be produced in Toledo, Ohio.
We still don’t know details about the price, but some reports suggest a sum of 30.000 dollars for base models. A pickup truck version of the new SUV will probably have its premiere somewhere in the first half of the next year.
