The iconic SUV is finally about to get an oil-burner, which will probably come as 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel. The famous model is definitely a pride of Chrysler, so it is no wonder that the company put such great effort into the development of new generations. After years of waiting, we are finally seeing a new version of the legendary SUV. The new model comes with plenty of novelties but still keeps the spirit of the original. We can easily notice that the new model continues the evolution that started many decades ago. However, there are many novelties, especially in the mechanical aspects.
The company claims that new model is more capable than before. Also, we can see some changes in terms of powertrains. There are some new gasoline engines already in the offer, but the biggest novelty should come next year as 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel.
In terms of design, the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will follow all those changes that came with the recent redesign. The new generation doesn’t feature radical changes but is still many novelties. The famous SUV gets a new platform but remains of steel. In terms of styling, you definitely will not see some bigger differences. The new model continues the evolution of the previous models and features all trademark elements. There are things like a tall grille with seven vertical slots, round headlights, flared fenders and all other recognizable details. Also, there are some novelties. For example, turning signals are now positioned on the fenders instead of a grille, which was the case with the previous generation.
The cabin of the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will be pretty much the same as in gasoline models. The company introduced some nice novelties with this redesign. Although the new model comes with a similar flat dashboard, there are many new details. This SUV is now full of advanced technology features. For example, there is a large touchscreen with the Uconnect interface. There are also things like a blind-spot monitoring system and forward collision warning. Compared to the previous generation, the new model features a slightly longer wheelbase, which also provides more space inside.
The biggest novelty for the next year should be a new diesel version. The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel is about to come with a familiar 3.0-liter diesel unit. This engine is good for about 260 horsepower and 442 pound-feet of torque. This huge amount of power will definitely provide excellent performances. The new diesel engine will come with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The new generation is already available with two gasoline engines. The base model comes with a familiar 3.6-liter V6 engine, which is good for about 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The optional 2.0-liter turbo inline-four comes with a belt-driven starter-generator and a 48-volt battery. So, it is practically a mild hybrid, which doesn’t feature an all-electric mode, but still saves some gasoline. It features a max output of 268 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. A plug-in hybrid is expected to come in 2020.
Although there is no official information about new version, many reports suggest that the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler Diesel will have the premiere already in the first half of next year. A few months later, we should see it on the market. However, most of these reports don’t suggest any possible price. In any case, we are pretty sure that this version with a diesel engine will cost over 30.000 dollars in base variant.
