The Jeep Wrangler has been all refreshed for the outgoing 2018 model year, so we don’t anticipate any specific changes for the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The new Wrangler is now slightly larger than the previous model which has improved its space and stability. It is slightly lighter too, and it is easier to handle and has an improved off-road capability. Moreover, the interior is now more modern and better equipped.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited types of engines
Under the hood of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be offered two types of engines. So, the one is a 2.0-liter inline-4 turbocharged engine. This unit is rated at 268 horses and 295 pound-feet of torque. This unit will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission and the all-wheel drive system is standard.
The next is a 3.6-liter V-6 unit which is able to develop 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This unit will work with either an 8-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual gearbox. Connected to a manual transmission, this unit gets 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. When paired with a manual gearbox, it will be rated at 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. The 4-door model with manual transmission is estimated to be 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
The exterior and interior design
The 2018 model year has been fully revamped, so the 2019 Jeep Wrangler probably won’t differ much from its predecessor in the terms of external appearance. It new Wrangler is now wider for around two inches and the wheelbase is expanded for two inches as well. So, the comfort but also the stability has been much improved. The front end will sport the well-known seven-slat grille and a pair of rounded headlamps. The doors will be made of aluminum which will also help in reducing the weight. The LED headlamps and taillights will be available as well.
The interior of the 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited features the simple design as before but it is now more modern. The base models are rather basic while in the higher trim levels you get leather seats with contrast stitching and a leather-wrapped dashboard. Furthermore, the 4-door models will offer more room for the rear seat passengers because of the larger wheelbase. The front seats are very cozy and supportive and come with standard lumbar support. As for the cargo, the Wrangler offers the room of around 32 cubic feet.
The standard equipment of all Wranglers includes USB, a rearview camera, cloth upholstery, keyless ignition, push-button ignition, etc. The higher trim levels will add an 8.4-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system, power windows, air conditioning, keyless entry, LED interior lighting, remote start, a heated steering wheel, upgraded driver information cluster, power features, and so on.
Release date and price
The 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be ready to go on sale in the following months. Its starting price is expected to be around $28,200 while the 4-door Rubicon will be around $41,700.
