2019 Jeep Wrangler Mid-Size Pickup: Spied

WranglerPickup.g01.KGP.ed II

One of the many new pickup trucks getting ready to make its debut as a 2019 model (along with the Ram 1500, Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500) is the returning Jeep pickup.

Naturally, there is much speculation about how different it will be from the coming Ram half ton and how similar it will be to the all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler. From what we've heard, this pickup will be very similar inside and out to the coming 2018 Wrangler 4x4 SUV, albeit with a longer wheelbase and a more cargo-friendly bed.

Here's the latest from our spy shooters:

"We just got our first uncovered look at the JL Wrangler's new LED light strips that are mounted in its front fender, giving us a great view of one of the iconic off-roader's most noteworthy front fascia changes.

"The photos come from a carelessly placed body in white covered only in some of the black-and-white graphic body wrap. The LED light strips are flanked by a yellow light/reflector element that wraps around the wheel arch. We can also see that the wheel arch gets an extra bit of sculpting for a little more detail on the Wrangler's classic design feature.'

"The photos also provide a good look at the undisguised hood clamps, which show a metal rung design instead of the rubber bungee-style closure."

good stuff

Nice truck! Although somehow, the GM guys will calculate this into their totals to try to beat Ford.

I would be very interested in this as a single cab with 6.5-foot bed.

No thanks

If I didn't buy my Power Wagon, I would have bought this new truck from Jeep in a couple years.

Nice job Jeep, now this truck will dethrone the Chevy ZR2 and the Taco as the best mid-sized off roader.

Disclaimer, I have owned Jeeps since 1983

Derek, this will not dethrone the Taco or Collie. It will out do both in rock crawling /articulation but not in higher speed trail running.

Still think it will be a nitch vehicle

Providing it doesn't rust out like the Jeep pickups of old and has better reliability, this could be a contender in the midsize market for sure. However, will Jeep loyalists like the wider turning circle which the longer wheelbase and body will entail compared to the current Jeep Wrangler?

@bat

Absolutely!

Turning circle would have to be damn near 50 ft. especially if equipped with 4wd. Jeep purists would revolt.

The entire mid size segment has lost its way. A short wheelbase mid size regular cab is overdue

Damn, Jeep going to have a truck before Ford craps out another crappy cheap junk death trap Ranger.

Well considering Ford counts vans as trucks, I wouldn't blame them.

I'm with JK. The posted photos are of a truck in a full-vinyl cover, but the description is about photos with just the black-and-white swirl graphic wrap directly on the body.

No sense in posting this story if you're not going to actually purchase and use the photos that match the description.

I'm a Jeep fan, I owned a 12' Wrangler and a 14' Unlimited, but I am not crazy about the Jeep pickup. I think the only sales they will hurt are their own would be JL buyers who want a "Jeep" but need a pick up.

No thanks I'll pass . Junk just like Garbage Motors hahahaha.

It reads like the truck is modeled after the wrangler but not really using it as a base for the truck..
If I got a jeep truck I wouldn't want it to be a Ram with a Jeep like body.
Hopefully it will be just the Rams frame

@Ford#1. Hey idiot Have you Fixed Or Repaired Daily? Ford are junk!

I wish they would just build a two door Scrambler type pickup.

I think the only sales they will hurt are their own would be JL buyers who want a "Jeep" but need a pick up.

I disagree. I know more than a few guys that drive Ram 1500's that are really Jeep guys, just that they need a truck around for truck work. They're ready to trade them in when the Jeep truck arrives. I also know a one or two guys with rusted out Tacomas that are waiting to check out the Jeep truck for the simple fact that it'll be a midsize truck with a solid front axle and tons of aftermarket support. Funny enough I brought up the Ranger that'll be out in a couple years. The first guy wasn't interested because they have family members that have had terrible experiences with ecoboost engine problems and Ford dealers that wouldn't fix the problems. The second Taco guy said he was sticking with Tacomas and Jeeps because they hold their value better.

i just wanna ext cab with 6.5 foot bed.

papajimni,
Remember CAFE ......... the foot print. This is an embuggerance to pickup trucks.

Unfortunately when technical barriers are used as an instrument they can backfire.

@ford#2 fourth to all, nothing like your ford ( Garbage Motors ) junk. Your government bailout junk. HaHaHa

@Big Al

Who needs CAFE?

Hopefully it doesn't look like the diesel brothers incarnation

It'll probably be the priciest pickup on the market.

All this site does is talk about Ford's. So biased.

Who needs CAFE? I'll take a large Mac Cafe.
