While we are waiting for the new Wrangler to show itself, we are gathering more and more interesting information about this SUV. One of them is the possible arrival of the pickup truck. Nevertheless, it is not clear yet, but this vehicle will carry the name Scrambler. Another interesting gossip is related to the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel.
First of all, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel should offer better mpg rating than its petrol sibling. Also, the manual transmission is possible. However, exact details about the release date, price, and final specs are not yet available. We will know more when the standard model comes out, and it should happen by the end of this year.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Specs
Under the hood of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will be a 3.0-liter V-6 powertrain. It is not going to match an output of petrol unit, which delivers 290 hp. On the other hand, torque will be definitely higher, probably over 350 lb-ft. That will make Wrangler Diesel a true off-road crossover, ready to take over all obstacles and terrain challenges.
Transmission and Towing Capacity
The automatic gearbox is mated to both petrol and diesel engines. It is an eight-speed transmission, whose alternative is going to be a six-speed manual. Diesel SUV is going to mate it to a 3.0-liter mill to provide smooth shifting.
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will offer better-towing capacity than its siblings. We still don’t have numbers for a new 2.0-liter drivetrain. However, an old 2.5-liter unit can tow up to 4,000 pounds. The diesel version will probably go up to 5,000 pounds.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Changes
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will carry the same chassis as the petrol model. That means changes on the next SUV will be common for both versions. Jeep has a new design language, and it is implementing it to all its new vehicles. Soon, we will see a brand-new Grand Wagoneer built on that platform. Also, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler will use the same.
More aggressive appearance is a highlight. New bumpers and headlights will make this crossover stylish and elegant. On the other hand, the trademark of the company remains the same. Chrome radiator grille is something we can’t imagine Wrangler without it.
High-tech features brought by the previous edition of Wrangler will get updates. Interior receives a praise, so the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel won’t change too much there. Some details will refresh the cabin. No big moves are on the way.
So, we will get a Command-Trac system. However, the base model is not so rich with its offer, with air conditioning, touchscreen display, and Apple CarPlay missing. Well, these features are available at higher trims.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel Price
The new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel is not going to exceed $31,000 mark for the base unit. On the other hand, with all these extra features, the crossover reaches $40,000 mark. We don’t believe to see diesel engine under the hood of Rubicon trim. However, if it happens, the price jumps even over $50,000. Then, the 2019 Wrangler Diesel becomes the premium SUV.
