The desire to own a pickup would multiply by folds once you lay your eyes on the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck. The exact picture of the model is not out yet, but the slight glimpses and the feature descriptions have made it possible to whip up an image using our imaginations.
The hype surrounding the pickup trucks had died down in the early 90’s when people were moving towards car like vehicles or jeeps. The introduction of the Jeep Wrangler Pickup seems like a very natural option for the Chrysler. Instead of losing the strong impact that their image had with heavy duty jeeps by an introduction of a car like vehicles, they diversified the product portfolio with the introduction of Pickups.

The pickup is built with the body on frame concept. The material used for the building of pickup is mainly aluminum with plastic body panels. The main frame being modeled out of steel. The new pickup is to powered by 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 with both manual and automatic transmission. The powering of the pickup is similar to the engine that is currently powering the Jeep Wrangler.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck – Redesign:
The rear taillights appear to be quite huge from the aerial shots that have been made available. The tail lights from their image seem to be like the ones on Ram. The wheelbase of the Pickup is very long and the bed size of the pickup also seems quite adequate. The only issue that has been reported is the poor aerodynamics of the Wrangler’s line up engines. The issue seems to be addressed in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup, with a seven-slot grille. This will provide an ample space for ventilation and thus also cater to the issues related to poor aerodynamics. The new Jeep Wrangler pickup will boast of an EcoDiesel-branded diesel engine.
