Jeep Wrangler Pickup Confirmed For 2019 Arrival



It was only a matter of time until Jeep reveals to fans the release date of their much anticipated Wrangler based pickup and now we have confirmation from the FCA head honcho himself, Sergio Marchionne. Speaking with Motor Trend at the North American International Auto Show, he revealed to them the Scrambler’s 2019 launch date.

Some enthusiasts were probably hoping for a 2018 debut following the new Wrangler’s release, but assembly logistics is pushing the pickup’s launch date to 2019. It’s not because the vehicle is still in its developmental phase because Marchionne said “the product is done” and ready for launch.

What’s holding the Scrambler back is the Toledo complex’s production capacity and how long it’ll have to be shut down for retooling. Both generations of the Wrangler will be built at said plant and “We can’t lose any Wranglers. Unfortunately the financial damage associated with a shutdown of the plant in Toledo is tremendous, so we decided to keep on running the old Wrangler while this one was coming out.”

Once production of the 2017 Wrangler ends this March, the plant’s Supplier Park section will be closed for nine months. During this time, the facility will be retooled and tested before Scrambler production starts early next year.

If Jeep really does reveal the new Scrambler on the 2019, then we can expect it to happen in the first month or two because they plan to start production in April 2019.

A lot of industry shows happen near the end of every year so if Jeep follows that then we could very well expect to see the Scrambler late 2018 for 2019 launch.

Well, there's always the annual Moab gathering though I doubt Jeep will debut the Scrambler there. What's more likely are hints of the Scrambler is someone decides to ask the Jeep rep about it. But one can hope and we have a pretty good idea of what it'll look like from the new Wrangler.

Too bad there's almost promise of when it will happen because these days car makers have been using the option of unveiling a vehicle from any regular show or event. One thing for sure though is the fact that we should see something impressive at this years SEMA show.

Not too sure about SEMA. It's not really the event to debut a new model globally for the first time. I can see why it would be appealing fro some brands like Jeep, but there are other better debut options out there.

We will probably see the Scrambler at Mopars Easter Safari. They teased a couple of images and one is clearly a Wrangler with a bed.

I hope they just don't have all FCA involvement on it but also some from aftermarket brands because that will mean we get early availability on parts. FCA has been known to let aftermarket parts makers get an early look to do measurements, that might be the case here.

IS that really a pickup bed or just a normal wrangler with its top down and roll bars? From the length of those bars, it looks like the Wrangler has a short wheelbase. I'm expecting Jeep to show off their factory accessories instead of unveiling the new Scrambler.

They've already shown off most of the concepts from the Easter Safari and unfortunately the Scrambler is not one of them. I believe what they were teasing was this Sandstorm concept.
