Jeep pickup confirmed, will be built in Toledo

Finally. In 2011 Jeep CEO Mike Manley said, “It is too late in Wrangler’s product cycle to add a pickup. The 2015 or 2016 time frame makes more sense,” when the next-generation Wrangler is due. A year later, Manley told an Australian outlet that a decision on a Jeep with a bed would come “pretty soon.” Now, The Detroit News reports that the decision has been made, and it’s a “Yes.”A Wrangler-based truck is expected to arrive in 2017, sometime after the launch of the next Wrangler. And it’ll be built in Toledo next to its sibling.

Those desperate for a carry-all Wrangler have been able to buy Mopar’s JK8 conversion kit for the past four years. Frankly, even though the Jeep Gladiator concept (pictured) is now 11 years old and the JT concept is nine years old, we think either one of them could roll off the line in a year and be welcomed with hosannas.

This year’s New York Auto Show will also be the site of the reveal of the compact SUV that will slot in between the Renegade and the Cherokee, built on the Renegade/Fiat 500X platform and replacing both the Compass and Patriot. Derided by many, in the US the two aging CUVs still sell terrifically well – they both hit records here last year. One of them will live on in name, the new SUV to be called either Compass or Patriot; the former name is bigger in international markets, the latter name gets more recognition here. That show is when we’ll also get Fiat Chrysler’s updated five-year plan that will take us through the presumed end of CEO Sergio Marchionne’s tenure at FCA.
