2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Spy Shots
News about the Wrangler-based pickup truck is not a surprise given that the truck prototype was recently spotted during testing. Below you can see some spy shots of the long-wheelbase four-door test mule. It underwent testing under heavy camouflage, but it sure looks like it sports a Ram pickup bed, which is about 5-6 foot long. The rest of the vehicle is all Wrangler, with familiar seven slot grille and flat roof.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup truck is expected to be equipped with three engine options, including a turbocharged 4-cylinder Hurricane engine, a V-6 gasoline unit and an EcoDiesel diesel engine. No specs are known at this moment.

As for the release date, like we mentioned above, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup truck will debut by the 2019, following the release of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. When it goes on sale, it will sure be a heavy competitor to the popular trucks by other manufacturers, including Ford Ranger, Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, Chevy Colorado, Honda Ridgeline, GMC Canyon…
