Last week, we showed you pictures of a production-spec base model Jeep Wrangler Truck (JT) prototype. Well, our friends at Real Fast Fotography have caught another variant of the upcoming Jeep truck. We still aren’t calling it Scrambler just yet, since nothing official has been announced.
One of the most anticipated vehicles for Jeep diehards has been the new Wrangler-based truck. While documents showed there would be two models a “base” and a “premium” model for the new Jeep truck, there looks to be an equivalent to the popular Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara (JL) with these latest spy photos.
This prototype features Sahara-like features like side steps and the standard halogen headlamps and turn signals. Also highlighted on this prototype is a set of what looks to be 18-inch dual 5-spoke aluminum wheels.
We assume that this particular prototype is powered by a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, which delivers 285 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque and features Engine Stop-Start (ESS) as standard equipment. The same document that was leaked by Jalopnik about the towing stats of the new Jeep truck and showed a base and premium trim levels also stated that the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6.
We are hearing that the new Jeep trucks will debut during the auto show circuit sometime in the first half of 2019. The new Jeep will be released as a 2020 model according to our sources.
