2019 Jeep Scrambler Review, Specs and Release Date One year ago Jeep confirmed plans to construct a Wrangler-based pickup truck in their Toledo, Ohio plant. They didn’t announce when will the work on this car start, but they started without telling us. How do we know that? Well, hard-working spy photographers captured first glimpses of what is to be a 2019 Jeep Scrambler. Not the title you’re expecting? Neither did we, nor there’s official confirmation that it will take this badge. However, for now, we will stick with it, and we hope you will do exactly the same.
2019 Jeep Scrambler Specs and Review
Those of us who don’t want this name to be the official branding of this truck will be happy to hear that Toledo-based company is considering other nameplates. The ones that are in the mix include nomenclature which was previously employed by this manufacturer such as Comanche, Gladiator, and Willys Jeep Truck. Irrespective of its name, what we could tell you is that pickup in question is incorporating a crew cab body and also a bed with proportions that are satisfying.
The vehicle is similar to we said according to Jeep Wrangler and is its spitting image from front to the start of the bed. What we can tell you is that inside will probably mimic what newest gen of business’s SUV, where it’s based, has to offer. In the back, we will have a flip-down tailgate which is pretty much standard nowadays. The spied truck is the one with four doors, and we are uncertain will there be a two-door version from the start.
While there will certainly be curiosity about 2019 Jeep Scrambler, it’s going to need to fight hard for its share of this market. Along with recently introduced 2019 Ford Ranger, in addition, there are competitions like Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Toyota Tacoma. However, what will separate Scrambler from these rivals is its off-road capability. The model based on Wrangler SUV is going to have a lot to offer in this department. Its chassis will feature ladder frame and strong axles suspended by coil springs which will give it an advantage in comparison to other offerings in the segment.
2019 Jeep Scrambler Engine
The ability of 2019 Scrambler will come in the form of 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 outfitted with mild-hybrid technology and 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. As you probably guessed that this unit matches what is available in 2018 Jeep Wrangler. Another powertrain also shared with its SUV counterpart is a 3.6-liter V-6 that comes with 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of grunt. Wrangler also includes a plug-in-hybrid and petrol versions, and these will probably be part of this Scrambler lineup.
2019 Jeep Scrambler Price and Release Date
2019 Jeep Scrambler will probably have a grand launch at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. So, all you who were expecting for it to be available earlier, do not hold your breath. Taking the Ford/Jeep rivalry into consideration Toledo giant will look to overshadow Ranger’s 2018 debut. The best place to get this done is your 2019 NAIAS. Expect the brand new Jeep truck at the dealerships at the end of spring, 2019.
Considering 2018 Wrangler costs $28,000 it is tough to envision that 2019 Jeep Scrambler could control a price lower than that. It may be assumed it will start at that indicate, or maybe slightly above. Toyota Tacoma goes out of $27,000, and same is with Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Ranger starts somewhat lower than that, but with all off-road capabilities that Scrambler is going to offer, it will go head to head with these competitors.
