Spy Shots: 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Spotted in Michigan

These are the first shots of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck testing on public roads in Michigan.

Plans by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to launch a Jeep pickup truck have long been rumored, but these up-close photographs of a prototype show what the vehicle will look like.

It’s expected to be based on the long-wheelbase Wrangler Unlimited platform, with similar front-end styling and traditional Jeep styling towards the rear. Expect a truck similar to a Chevrolet Colorado or Toyota Tacoma, competing in the midsize pickup class and leaving plenty of breathing room for its larger FCA sibling, the Ram 1500.

Midsize pickup truck sales grew more than 25 percent in the U.S. last year to almost 450,000. FCA lacks a model in that segment.

It is slated to hit dealers in early 2019.

Like the Wrangler, the pickup will adopt more aluminum panels to save weight, while still allowing for good hauling and off-road capabilities. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine and an 8-speed automatic transmission will likely be the mainstream powertrain, but a hybrid will be added later. A diesel engine option is a question mark at this point.

Jeep is expected to pick some historical name for the pickup.
