When the next-generation Jeep Wrangler is released in late 2017, a pickup truck version will be available in addition to the classic two-door and four-door Unlimited models.
“[Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne] and I work very, very closely on the Jeep product portfolio, and both of us have been a fan of a potential Wrangler pickup…,” Manley told The Detroit News. “For me, there is a historical place in our lineup for it.”
Jeep has teased a few pickup truck concepts in the past decade. The Jeep J-12, produced for the annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari off-roading event in 2012, and the Jeep Gladiator (based on the Wrangler platform and shown in the above image) showcased at the 2005 Detroit Auto Show, are two notable examples.
