Reports: Jeep Wrangler Pickup on the Way?

After months of uncertainty, Fiat Chrysler announced today that production of the Jeep Wrangler will remain at its historic home in Toledo, OH.

But that wasn’t the big news in our estimation.

According to Automotive News, Jeep will soon make a Wrangler-based pickup in Toledo as well. This is great news for Jeep enthusiasts who have wished for a Wrangler pickup since seeing the Jeep Gladiator concept back in 2005. That Gladiator concept was built on a Ram 1500 frame and featured Wrangler styling. It’s unknown whether this truck would be built on a similar platform as the Gladiator or designed to compete with the smaller Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon (as well as the possible return of the Ford Ranger) for midsize truck supremacy.

The report says the Wrangler pickup would likely debut in 2017 or 2018.

In other news, Fiat Chrysler announced that Jeep Cherokee production would be moving out of Toledo, presumably to expand production of the Wrangler (and maybe its truck counterpart.)

Stay tuned…
