2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Confirmed. Aluminum Body and Hybrid Powertrain

The next-generation Wrangler is so close to hit the production lines, and since it is a bestselling off-road SUV at the moment, it is pretty normal that there is a big number of rumbling these days. However, the rumors about the arrival of the Wrangler-based pickup truck are finally getting the official confirmation, as the Jeep’s global chief Mike Manley told that the 2018 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck definitely arrives in late 2017.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Gets Aluminum Chassis

The all-new pickup truck and Wrangler’s true sibling will reportedly look pretty the same as the next-generation SUV. However, since we have no idea how it will look the new Wrangler, this means nothing at the moment. What we know now is that the upcoming pickup truck will feature the same platform as its off-road brother, which further means that there will be lots of aluminum parts in the body. Of course, the car manufacturer won’t turn it into the can of Coke; it will rather build aluminum doors, hood and tailgate, and rest of the body from good old strong steel.

Amazing Options Under The Hood

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck will definitely get the attractive, but also the rugged and Wrangler’s distinctive styling. However, as always, the most important detail will be the “heart”. The latest reports announce pretty amazing options under the hood of the next-generation Wrangler SUV, and we are pretty convinced that the truck could offer the same units. Except of a usual gasoline engine, the all-new vehicle from Jeep will also get a hybrid powertrain. This won’t be the classical gasoline-electric drivetrain, but just a setup with brake energy recovery system, which could recharge a small battery that can be used as a help for some systems, perhaps for cooling and heating. The diesel engine that will get the 2018 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck is pretty famous, as it powers the Ram ecodiesel. It is a 3.0-liter engine that currently develops 240 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque, and stands as the best diesel option in the pickup truck segment.

Although we thought that the 2018 Jeep Wrangler truck won’t be ready in the same time as its SUV sibling, the latest information that these two could come together. Both vehicles will be produced in the Toledo, Ohio facility, so there is a chance to see them side by side at joint debut.
