Silk scarf off, wow effect on? will not work at the 2019 Jeep Wrangler premiere in LA. Too much leaked in advance. Only as a pickup could he go into the spotlight.
Actually, it’s too late for secrecy. Just three pictures, Jeep delivers to the new Wrangler generation. Lots of scenery, little car. Admittedly, miserably long photo routes and sharp detail shots are rare four weeks before a world premiere. But the fifth edition of the offroad icon just leaked out too much, as the Wrangler JL could still be the big surprise of the Los Angeles Motorshow. In March the first outdoor shots leaked, recently the complete manual. The Wow effect at the home trade fair is probably only possible if the pick-up variant is on the 29th of November under one of the silk scarves.
The Jeep Wrangler JL showed itself to the world for the first time and in black and white. Well, the images posted in the spring in an American forum were really not. But the Jeep Wrangler would not be a soft-washed SUV. The A-pillar would fall flat, the grill will grow larger, the front bumper more fashionable. The differences to the current JK model would be noticed at best by connoisseurs, he remained unmistakably a Wrangler – provided the photos were genuine.
This submitted at the latest the beginning of October 2017 leaked operating instructions near: 587 pages full of information about the iconic climber. In addition to an outside picture, there are pictures of the interior and engine compartment: The Wrangler seems to be getting an independent dashboard, in addition to the mandatory 3.6 liter V6 with 284 hp, a stronger 2.0-liter turbo gasoline engine would be found in the program. The uncompromising Kraxler-variant Rubicon is maintained according to the user manual. Doors and other attachments should still be removable, and a folding windscreen is also noted.
Even though Jeep never commented on the net finds: hardly anyone believed in a forgery. Accordingly little surprising the first official photos: increased fresh air options at the hardcore Offroader Rubicon. And a door with the discreetly revamped front.
What is missing in the official Jeep material and the online sources posted anonymously: a reference to the pick-up variant. FCA Group boss Sergio Marchionne had a prospect. The Jeep with loading area is to be built on the platform of the new 2019 Jeep Wrangler JL. Whether he also wears his model designation will show up.
From a brand-historical point of view, other names would be possible. From 1986 to 1992, Jeep built the Comanche in this segment, and before that, the 1962-launched Gladiator had a popular pickup in the program. After the latter named Jeep in the year 2005 a pickup study – the base formed the then Wrangler. Regardless of the name, a surprisingly featured Jeep pickup in LA would have the stuff to highlight the trade fair. Of course: At the Detroit auto Show in January or the Geneva salon in March, such a model would still ignite.
