Codenamed “JT,” this new Wrangler Pickup will be built off of the very same new architecture set to underpin the upgraded 2018 Jeep Wrangler which carries a “JL” internal classification. While the platform will incorporate a considerably higher percentage of weight-saving materials, it’s anticipated to rely more on high-strength steel than aluminum to help cut those extra pounds.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Design
The majority of the spy shots we’ve gotten of the Wrangler pickup have actually been from a bird’s- eye point of view. However this time, among our spy photographers got up close to the truck at ground level. The new view shows us some interesting information regarding the truck’s suspension, along with the placement of the extra tire.
Immediately evident is that the Wrangler pickup will have the same sort of suspension style as its SUV sibling. Strong axles are employed at the front and back, and it appears that the rear axle is coil-sprung, considering that there are no leaf springs nor shackles present beneath. The pictures also reveal that the truck won’t have a tailgate-mounted extra tire like the SUV. Instead, it will have a more standard truck place underneath the bed.
Few other new details can be seen from the spy photos. This model sports the exact same production-style bed we’ve previously seen. The pictures likewise really reveal just how long this Wrangler pickup is. With such a long wheelbase and rear overhang, the pickup will have more trouble with hills than the bed-less versions. Of course, it will also be able to bring more than those Wranglers.
