It’s Real! 2019 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Caught Testing
There is a seperate thread...
Is it just me, or does that look like they chopped up the bed of a Ram pickup and cobbled that together?
Yes, as discussed in the other thread. It's a mule put together for testing purposes.
That bed is not what will be installed when the vehicle debuts. It will probably be something similar to the AEV Brute.
Wrangler JL will for sure have a TFT screen between the speed and tach, note this mule is carrying the new Chrysler steering wheel.
You can also see the new angle of the windshield. look at the side window glass and the door structure at the A-pillar and compare it to a current JK.
Pretty sure its using the same body... in that spy shot
I'm hoping for less of a toy look for the JL. I would prefer less bright work and less curves around knobs and vents.
Current looks great for catching dust and dirt and making it hard to clean.
The center stack is a little less "cluttered", as they have removed the 2 vents and switches just below the radio.
Isn't that for the new 8.4" UConnect, though?
The new radio only required a little more room, it's pretty much in the same location.
Yes! On vintage Jeeps you just pulled the rubber plugs in the floor pan and hosed it out. Easy to clean after a hard dirty day on the trail. Even my Cherokee XJ has the plugs. I seriously doubt you can do that on the new ones without ruining the electronics.
JKs still have the plugs.
It is so this tells you a lot about whats under the skin. If you take that same angle shot of the steering wheel and look at both the window glass and the door frame (at a-pillar) there is an increase in the angle.
Did they remove them or move them?
I would hate for them to have dropped the number of vents to two. Four is perfect
Summer = one vent per armpit
Winter = one vent per hand on the steering wheel
I hope they also keep the round vent design, those things are great for aiming the air anywhere you want
Nope it's just fine. Gets nice and dirty and cleans up well.
Yep, my 2010 JK gets rained in / hosed out all the time. After hunting season I usually pull the carpets, nail them to my fence, and pressure wash them, the pressure wash out the inside of the jeep. A little common sense is all it takes not to ruin anything
Five vents is the proper number. On a hot Texas summer I still miss that driver crotch vent on that old 75 Buick LeSabre. Now if I had only been Scottish I could have worn a kilt back then.
Moved them, still round.
