Photo credit: Jeep
2018 has been a banner year for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and their Jeep® brand. Among the highlights of 2018, Jeep improved upon the new generation Wrangler, the JL, with their 2019 Jeep Wrangler and announced plans to make 2019 special with the all-new 2020 Jeep Gladiator. Let’s go over all the recent news and upcoming Jeep vehicles expected to come out in 2019 and beyond!
2019 Jeep Wrangler
Of course, the latest and greatest Wrangler yet, the new Jeep Wrangler JL, has gathered fans for its continued legacy of phenomenal off-road drivability and exciting trail-rated capabilities. Those capabilities include water fording, maneuverability and solid ground clearance to help go where a driver wants to take it thanks to over 75 years of 4×4 dominance.
A dual-top option is available for the new Jeep Wrangler JL. With the introduction of the new generation Wrangler JL, removing the hard top for the soft top or vice versa can be done in as little as 30 minutes. That was a vast improvement over the previous generation Jeep Wrangler. Customers used to be bothered at how hard separating the top was with the Jeep Wrangler when dust collected in the zippers, but the mechanism of the soft top no longer includes zippers. This is one of the nice features customers can enjoy with the latest Wrangler JL, which is still present in the 2019 Jeep Wrangler.
The all-new Wrangler has a total of four available trims; the Wrangler Sport, Sport S, Sahara and Rubicon. Deciding on which trim is easy as they all have their perks and the Sahara trim is the only one that isn’t available as a 2-door model. The Sport trim starts at $28,045 MSRP (plus destination fee).
Upcoming Jeep Releases
The upcoming 2020 Jeep Gladiator pickup is the perfect vehicle for the midsize pickup segment of customers that have been growing in size in recent years. In fact, midsize pickups are up a total of 17.6 percent compared to this time in 2017. This is one of the special vehicles that will define 2019 and provide a great experience for all those who are looking for a new pickup that’s capable of providing incredible offroad abilities and Best-in-class towing with 7,650 pounds of towing capacity and 1,600 payload capacity. This will be a vehicle that makes full use of capabilities thanks to superb aerodynamics and the only true open-air 4×4 pickup with easy-to-use premium soft top and two hardtop options.
The Jeep Gladiator, will be known as the Gladiator JT. With its excellent 4×4 capabilities, there’s no doubt the newest Jeep creation is going to be a success. The Gladiator will hold 33-inch off-road tires, Command-Trac, and Rock-Trac 4×4 systems to help make the Gladiator as capable offroad as it will be driving anywhere else. The crew cab configuration will carry a strong five-foot steel bed with an available covered external power source (400W 115-volt, three-prong).
The Future of Jeep
FCA is committed to producing a wide range of electrified powertrains over the next few years. 2020 will also see the debut of the most fuel-efficient Wrangler. FCA has shared details about the upcoming 2020 Jeep Wrangler Plug-in Hybrid. Jeep is on track to have the plug-in hybrid model of the Wrangler in showrooms by 2020. The essential components for the PHEV Jeep are arranged to be assembled at Toledo Machining Plant in Ohio. The wait for a new Jeep vehicle won’t be long, but to satisfy those that want a new Jeep vehicle, there’s nothing quite like the selection found at Kendall Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram.
