Only Wrangler purists that shy away from major changes like that. Jeep has proven they know how to properly change or introduce a product, even FCA as a whole, so I have complete confidence in the fact a Hybrid Wrangler will meet the needs of those purists.

Wrangler enthusiasts will be catered to first with the new pickup, mostly by Jeep releasing diesel and petrol options first and then they'll probably see how well they sell and look at potential buyers' feedback before releasing a hybrid version. We're more likely to see it in the normal JL Wrangler first before the pickup.

FCA Authority is suggestion we might not see it till 2021, which sort of confirms my mid-production-cycle speculation

Quote:
The Jeep Wrangler hybrid and Jeep Wrangler diesel (if it arrives) arenít expected to debut until 2021 or beyond.

I actually don't know of any hybrid pickups in the market right now, though ford is coming out with a hybrid F-150 pickup later on and Toyota is considering it as well. If the Wrangler pickup comes with a hybrid powertrain, it'll only have one other rival and that's it.

2021 is a good way out and at that point we'll be seeing some sort of engine updates.

But the F-150 being a full-sized pickup truck, it'll be in a different segment but I guess close enough lol. By 2021 though, I can imagine they'd be more competition.

Ford should have an F150 Hybrid on the road by then but competition is inevitable with the current timeline, what matters is that Jeep gets their spot in the truck market. Success should take on a route similar in proportion to what we see with the way things are currently. Except you just have to imagine what JL Truck sales would be like.

Here's the new Jeep Wrangler testing at silver lakes sand dunes and man does that suspension look soft. Though it's still in the final development stages, so maybe things will change or it's a specific drive mode.

The suspension does seem a bit too soft to me, but it's better than tight suspension combined with potholes. I'd like to fell like I'm floating on a cloud for long trips, even if it was a bouncy floaty kind cloud. good enough for my passengers, and me to fall asleep when the pickup is flying down the freeway.

Dana has some new stuff happening under these JL's along with many changes. Given how much of a decline and incline it was on I have no problem with that level of body roll. All Par has a good piece that covers the new setup.
