The Jeep Wrangler pickup truck is really, finally happening. Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne and Jeep CEO Mike Manley confirmed at the Detroit auto show that it would reach production in late 2017.It all matters on how it's done. If a Jeep Truck ends up being as big as a normal 4x4 pickup then I don't get the point. Of course that's my opinion and I'm sure others will disagree. I'll be interested in seeing how this turns out.
The Detroit News said more details would emerge later this month when FCA reveals its updated five-year product strategy to investors. But so far, nothing has changed since we first heard an unofficial yes in September, including that it will be built alongside the next-gen Wrangler in Toledo, Ohio. While it’s far from being the first production Jeep pickup, it will be the first one under the Wrangler umbrella. It’s expected to incorporate the same healthy dose of aluminum as the next Wrangler.
