Looking for a modern SUV with great performances? The 2019 Jeep Wrangler delivers it all. This SUV comes with an iconic exterior design, great off-road capabilities, and astonishing interior. Literally, everything, except the name is all-new. That includes a new interior, better exterior, the new lineup of engines and much more.
However, Jeep did a great thing with the latest changes. Famous exterior design now looks even better, the interior offers the latest technology systems and the performance is better than ever. Perhaps, the Wrangler model is mostly known for its ability to tackle all types of terrains. The versatility of this SUV is on another level, the four-wheel-drive system is available and the ride quality is superb. Furthermore, the 2019 Wrangler is slightly longer and wider than the current model.
2019 Jeep Wrangler is two inches wider than predecessor
The upcoming 2019 Jeep Wrangler or Scrambler, will get numerous exterior upgrades. For the start, the vehicle is two inches wider and the wheelbase is two inches longer. The ride quality is much better now, and the stability is great. New Wrangler will use plenty of lightweight materials, and the doors are finished in aluminum.
What we like about the new Wrangler is its windshield. Unlike the previous models, the new model requires only four bolts to remove the windshield. The previous model has 28 bolts which are a little frustrating. Up front, the LED headlights are standard, along with the taillights at the back. The roof is configurable in multiple ways, so you can now enjoy the open off-roading even more. Also, a new roof is a much better and quicker solution when hiding from the rain.
2019 Jeep Wrangler interior looks luxury
The interior of the all-new 2019 Jeep Wrangler will look more modern than before. As a matter of fact, the interior of the new Wrangler is the best one yet. Everything from the inside now looks more upscale, and the layout of controls is simple. Numerous modern touches are visible, that includes a body-color dashboard, round vents, and the latest touchscreen.
If you think that the base model still looks and feels wild, it is. However, thanks to numerous trim levels, you can equip the interior to the luxury level. That will include leather seats and dash, contrast stitching and more optional features. There is a 4-door Wrangler variant that is more expensive, but it offers more upscale amenities and more room. Furthermore, the 4-door version provides seating for five passengers.
2019 Jeep Wrangler engine performance and fuel economy
There will be two drivetrain options under the hood of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler. Well, three to be exact, but we’ll get to that later. For the start, the base engine is the 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit. This turbocharged engine delivers 268 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy rating is not available yet, unfortunately. This unit is new since this year, and it offers an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The optional engine is the 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar. The V6 powertrain is capable of producing up to 285 HP and 260 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, this is the first and only Pentastar engine that offers a 6-speed manual transmission. Of course, you can still opt for the automatic gearbox if you want to. The fuel economy of the V6 powertrain is set at 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway with the manual transmission. Automatic gearbox delivers slightly lower fuel economy.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel model
As the Jeep promised, the diesel engine will arrive in 2019, so its happening. If you are a huge fan of the off-roading, you are going to love this. A 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel drivetrain is available for the first time. It comes with the 8-speed automatic transmission and it generates up to 265 horses. The best part is the torque numbers that are rated at 445 lb-ft. Moreover, Jeep will introduce new driving modes for all types of terrains and all sorts of weather conditions.
With that in mind, there is no reason not to try tackling rocky or snowy terrains. Thanks to the greater torque level, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler will climb a lot easier. The 2020 model could get a hybrid variant as well, but we’ll have to wait for the official confirmation from the Jeep.
2019 Jeep Wrangler price and release date
The sales of the Wrangler SUV are getting better and better. The sale is growing each and every year, but the price is growing as well. However, this is the logical Jeep’s move having in mind the number of changes and improvements. While the current Wrangler is priced at $24,000, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler will cost around $26,000.
The four-door model will cost $28,500. Plenty of trim levels are opening the space for even more expensive models such as Rubicon Hard Rock. This model will cost almost $50,000. The main competitor could become the probable 2019 Ford Bronco, along with the off-road oriented pickup truck like Toyota Tacoma TRD-Pro or Chevrolet Colorado ZR2.
