The Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck has Officially Been Caught on Camera
I need you to sit down. Seriously. Sit down, right now. Because the time we have all been waiting for has finally come.
The Jeep Wrangler pickup truck has been caught on camera.
After years and years of hearing rumors about a Jeep pickup truck, the moment has finally arrived and we have our first photographic evidence of this much-anticipated vehicle. It looks big, it looks badass, it looks buff, and I am totally, totally okay with it.

The truck bed is a lot longer than I expected—I’m guessing it would measure about five feet or so—and I am definitely not complaining. As previous rumors stated, it looks like it will be based on the Wrangler Unlimited body with the four doors making it into a crew cab. The pickup truck’s nose is exactly what you would expect from a Jeep with the photos giving us a glimpse of the evolved seven-slot Jeep grille.

In terms of powertrain, it’s common consensus that the pickup truck will offer a V6 engine with the potential of having both diesel and hybrid variants. The diesel might possibly be Fiat Chrysler’s EcoDiesel engine, which is typically offered in its Ram brand trucks. There haven’t been any official words on this, though, but I’m pretty sure it’s a safe bet that there will be one diesel engine and a gasoline one.

The Jeep Wrangler pickup truck is likely to make its debut in the 2019 model year, going on sale after the regular Wrangler gets a refresh in the second half of 2017. I have to say, I’m counting down the seconds until we get a look at this pickup without the camo.
