2018 Wrangler with "something that they call a truck bed." - CEO Sergio Marchionne

FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne was reported saying the next wrangler will come with "something that they call a truck bed." What exactly can we expect what they will call a truck bed to be? Feel free to use visuals below:

Oddly worded is probably what he wanted just to get people talking instead of not making it fun and saying 'like a traditional truck bed' because at that point the discussion stops, we already know what to expect.

Will be interesting. Some say Jeep can only make 2 door pickups, while others say that no plant upggrades mean they'll be able to offer crewcab as well...
Well they could very well do one and then see how it does. Assuming it does really well, they would then know that it is worth the investment to make a crew cab version.

Maybe they will change up the bed just a little bit. have side swinging doors, or something like that just to make it the slight bit different.

Maybe seats that can be removed to have a truck bed instead.

When FCA committed to converting Toledo North to body-on-frame production, it gave Jeep an opportunity to go beyond a simple capacity increase by specifying larger production line carriers capable of handling units longer than the current 116-inch wheelbase Wrangler Unlimited. This is pivotal because larger carriers are prerequisite unless you want a double-cab Wrangler pickup with a nearly useless Ford Explorer Sport Trac-style short bed.
Seems as though there must be changes or a crewcab Wrangler pickup would have a bed that isn't very useful at all.
