Jeep 2019 Wrangler Price and Colors
What It Is: The Wrangler is as synonymous with Jeep as the Steinbrenner family is with the New York Yankees. While it’s no secret that an all-new Wrangler is set to replace the current decade-old truck before year’s end, these spy shots mark our first sneak peek into the next-generation Jeep Wrangler’s insides.
Why It Matters: The Wrangler is the heart and soul of the Jeep brand, and its success sets the tone for the entire Jeep lineup. Although no one can criticize the current Wrangler’s off-road chops, many (including us) have commented on the rig’s low-tech interior. Such an interior helps simplify things while you’re out wheeling, but modern amenities nevertheless would be welcome on the daily commute. We can’t comment on the quality of the forthcoming interior, but these spy photos reveal that the Wrangler’s technology is set to increase dramatically.
No longer will Wrangler owners be forced to peck haphazardly at the small, slow-to-react infotainment touchscreen that is the best offered in higher-end Wranglers today. As seen in this seemingly top-of-the-line mule, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler will adopt the latest iteration of Fiat Chrysler’s easy-to-operate and quick-to-respond system in the form of Uconnect 3.0. Although our spy photographer didn’t get close enough to measure the screen, we presume the top-end unit will measure 8.4 inches as it does in other FCA products (expect lower-end 2019 Wranglers to run the smaller but still intuitive and quick 5.0-inch touchscreen setup).
These shots also allow us to see many other buttons scattered across the new Wrangler’s center stack. Directly below the screen sit the truck’s automatic climate controls and a pair of big rubberized knobs for the audio system’s volume and tune functions. Notably, this mule also features buttons for parking-assist sensors, engine stop/start functionality, and a heated steering wheel, the last of which likely will be appreciated by denizens of snow-covered areas.
One tier lower sit the window switches in the traditional location for power-window-equipped Wranglers; this is essentially confirmation that the Wrangler’s doors will continue to be removable. Surrounding the switches are a 12-volt charging port and a “media” door that likely hides one or more USB ports and perhaps an SD card slot. Finally, below that is an anti-roll-bar disconnect button, what appears to be a differential-lock button, and a mystery rocker switch (perhaps for entering various off-road modes?), as well as a quartet of auxiliary buttons that presumably mean 2019 Wrangler buyers can wire in accessories such as additional exterior lighting, a winch, and other off-road-ready items without needing to drill into the dashboard to mount switches.
