What if the upcoming 2019 Jeep Wrangler pickup truck (unofficially known as 2019 Scrambler) was the only midsize pickup truck with a convertible open roof, solid front and rear axles, folding windshield, a turbo-diesel engine, and a possible 2.0L turbocharged engine with a mild 48-volt electric hybrid system? It would be a very interesting proposition. If the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL is any indication, this is all very possible and may be very well integrated together.

This prototype looks big next to a Ford F150

Here is a report that suggests that the upcoming 2019 Wrangler-based pickup truck will be called Jeep Scrambler.  There are also leaked documents that claim that the Scrambler will have three open top versions: black hard-roof removable panels (aka. Wrangler Freedom top), body-color removable panels, and a black Sunrider soft top. Maximum towing capability on the new Scrambler is said to be up to 6,500 lbs.

Check out this video to see how fast the soft top and the windshield can be folded on a Wrangler JL.
