A pickup truck based on the Jeep Wrangler is under development and should arrive on the market by 2017 or 2018.


According to Automotive News, production of the Wrangler will stay in Toledo, Ohio, which is also where Jeep will be building a new pickup truck based on the Wrangler. The fate of Wrangler production has been up in the air for nearly a year, but today Jeep execs revealed these plans to plant management. They also revealed that production of the Cherokee will be leaving Ohio for a nearby State, likely Michigan or Illinois.

Details on the Jeep Wrangler pickup truck are still unknown, besides the fact that it will be based on the next-generation Wrangler which will use some aluminum parts to cut weight while it will also likely adopt a diesel and or a small turbocharged gasoline motor to get good fuel economy ratings. It is likely that the truck will be a midsize to compete with the new Chevy Colorado along with the redesigned Toyota Tacoma.

fortunately we should expect it to look much like the rendering here and even more so since as of recent it was reported the new wrangler won't look far off from the current one.

It's about time! I think the last pickup Jeep came out with was in 1992. Jeep Wrangler pickup truck will most likely perform very well off road.

Let's hope so because the rendering embodies the wrangler. It's like they chopped off the front of a Wrangler and glued on a truck bed. Are there any rear pictures of the pickup rendering?
