We like the pickup trucks that are based on the SUV models. Those type of pickups are delivering astonishing exterior design, aerodynamics, and more modern appeal. The upcoming 2020 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck could become a perfect example. This model will be presented at the beginning of the next year in Detroit. What will separate Wrangler from the rest of the mid-size trucks is the removable roof and padded sports bar. Moreover, Jeep’s styling could become the main advantage. Remember, Jeep didn’t introduce pickup for twenty years and more.
The 2020 Wrangler Pickup Truck is still somewhat mysterious as we don’t know all the details, yet. A V6 gasoline unit is almost certain, along with the 8-speed transmission. This model will offer two and four-door variants and will wear the famous Jeep’s design language. On top of that, Wrangler truck will offer both Sport and Rubicon trim levels. A more luxurious version Wrangler Sahara pickup could also arrive.
2020 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck will arrive with a unique design
Just like the regular Wrangler, the pickup variant will also get new front and rear axles, along with the new and taller tires. The 2020 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck will arrive with a unique design. For an instance, that removable roof will definitely separate Wrangler from the rest of the segment. We could make the same statement for the padded sports bar as well. The sliding rear window is available, along with the three-piece hardtop. Additionally, the rear windows will depart from the Wrangler SUV and are more similar to the windows of the regular pickups.
We still don’t know if the electrically retractable glass will be in the offer. With this feature, removing the hardtop would be much easier. Wrangler pickup comes with a cargo bed that is similar to the bed in Toyota Tacoma. Expect storage boxes and more lightweight materials. Step on the rear bumper is standard and some body-colored features. The windshield is a folding flat, and the front end will replicate the Wrangler SUV model.
2020 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck interior is same as SUV
The interior of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck will be the same as the SUV’s interior. Logically, the layout will be totally different, but the design, shapes, and materials are the same. Moreover, even the infotainment system, displays, dashboard, and the seats are a carryover. While the pickup model comes with more practical stuff, the SUV offers sportiness and an upscale feel.
Expect plenty of buttons, gorgeous soft-touch surfaces, and optional leather upholstery. An 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen is a standard and will come with a slight upgrade. This unit now offers a simpler interface and is more user-friendly.
2020 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck engine rumors
Some things under the hood are still not clear. For sure, a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 will be in the offer. We just can’t figure it out yet if the powerful V6 will be the standard or optional engine. Have in mind the SUV model also offers a 3.0-liter diesel engine for those who are looking for more torque and off-roading. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder is another speculated engine, so we have three possible outcomes. One thing is certain, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck will arrive with two powertrains at the most.
Pentastar V6 delivers 320 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. The EcoDiesel is rated at 240 horses and 420 lb-ft of twists. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder drivetrain will produce 296 hp.
