2020 Jeep Wrangler – From the moment Jeep introduced the latest Wrangler during the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, we realize a hybrid version is on its way. At this moment, we could get some clearness about as soon as the model will come up.
Jeep makes a couple of improvements for the Wrangler for the 2nd-model-year as a total modernize redesign. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited introduced a brand-new, its look familiar and also new powertrain alternatives due to a restructuring within 2018.
In 2019, the Wrangler Unlimited kept mainly the same, stay for some minor changes to the safety features and also offers new color options. Due to this model continually new, we predict the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to become a carryover version.
There’s a thing that makes us confuse and think twice, that thing is relating to its nameplate between Wrangler, Scrambler or Gladiator (read this section). The Wrangler Unlimited lineup will not likely officially become a Wrangler model in any way.
That is the 2020 Jeep Gladiator midsize pickup truck, the fact that the carmaker will build with a Wrangler platform. The 2020 Gladiator will offer the SUV’s design on the rear doors forward, but it’ll include a truck bed around the back area. This improvement will be a remarkable combination of the off-road abilities, class-leading towing and also payload capacities.

2020 Jeep Wrangler named as a Gladiator or Scrambler?
AutospiX – In this article, we will discuss the 2020 Jeep Wrangler news and rumors like its exterior changes, interior design, engine configurations, release date and more. Let’s begin with its exterior design.
Let’s start our discussion with Wrangler’s exterior side. We predict the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to live the same. It will look initially like the 2020 Jeep Wrangler which has a 21.6-inch long wheelbase and the body with a pair of rear doors.
Typically, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is actually like the new-generation Jeep Wrangler that featuring brand-new headlight along with taillights that back to the old days. With a new grille, fold-down car windows, along with aluminum doors. We predict all of these main features to remain unrevised within the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
On the interior side, the new-generation Jeep Wrangler Unlimited received a more simple dashboard arrange along with modest spherical air vents, a new-classic middle stack, steering wheel having a break lessen spoke, along with old-school looking circular equipment.
In spite of getting all new features, the new-generation Wrangler back with natural interior elements, such as a Uconnect-3 infotainment system having a 5-inch touchscreen display, a good 8-speaker audio system, and also fabric seat designs.
The good news is the higher trims incorporate more luxuries such as bigger touchscreens, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation device, and even more. We predict all of these interior aspects to include straight into the 2020 Wrangler Unlimited.
As it comes with the engine configurations, we still expect the 2020 Jeep Wrangler to go on with similar engine selection. This configuration tends to add a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers 285-hp and 260 pound-feet of torque.
Additionally, we expect the optionally available 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that delivers 270-hp along with 295 lb-ft of torque to settle. The two powertrains will probably combine having a standard six-speed manual transmission or perhaps an optionally available eight-speed automatic. And all-wheel drive will continue to be compulsory.
And now let’s allow us to talk about the Wrangler’s safety features. Like the previous model, the safety designed to have passenger seats within the Wrangler’s rear.
However, the new-generation model used several optional complex safety features such as parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision warnings, and also an automatic emergency braking. Not surprisingly, a new rearview camera comes as standard equipment.
While it has all of these components, both of the IIHS or the NHTSA has verified the latest Wrangler Unlimited for its safety features. However, high-SUVs like this is hard to work well, particularly in roll-over testing. We predict all of the safety features to offer to the 2020 Wrangler Unlimited unchanged.
2020 Jeep Wrangler Release Date & Pricing
Until this time nothing official reveals, like its release date for the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. However, we predict to discover this high-riding SUV during the fall of 2019, maybe.
As there are keep any improvements, AutospiX.com also expects the 2020 Jeep Wrangler price tag to settle near to the 2019 Wrangler Unlimited’s costs, which will vary from $35,000 – $46,000 with including its destination fees.
2020 Jeep Wrangler Plug-in Hybrid
Like in one of the reports that reach us during FCA’s earnings call, Jeep will probably support a product sale release with the Jeep Wrangler Plug-in Hybrid within early 2020. On the same time also Fiat Chrysler talked about January 2020 on-sale schedule. To have that schedule, the vehicle production needs to start off by late 2019.
To produce the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Plug-in Hybrid, Jeep could use the Toledo plant in the 2019’s 2nd-quarter. In accordance with our sources that know well about this company, Jodi Tinson couldn’t give any lead validation of timelines, but he also said that there’ll be a PHEV version.
2020 Jeep Gladiator
In the beginning, as stated by Motor Authority that this Wrangler pickup truck will be known as Scrambler. However, recently we have seen new information on the contrary. On Jeep’s press website, a headline showed up a name as 2020 Jeep Gladiator.
The vehicle prototypes are actually found for quite a while now, and also Jeep has verified that the pickup truck using the renowned seven-slot grille will probably take a debut during the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, sometimes ago.
Gladiator may be a name that features on the Jeep pickup truck in past times, initially on the full-size pickup truck released within the 1960s and also using the Jeep Wagoneer base. After the debut in Los Angeles Auto Show, the Jeep pickup truck is predicted to hit dealers in April as being a 2020 model.
Like always, the main competitors of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be the Toyota 4Runner, Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Frontier, GMC Canyon, Chevrolet Colorado, Jeep Cherokee, and the Land Rover Discovery Sport. – US Automotive News
