Jeep pickup is making a come back!

The highly anticipated wait has come to an end.  Jeep will offer a pickup version of the next Wrangler and it will build the new truck at its Toledo Assembly Complex.  Jeep has been tossing around the pickup idea for several years now.  The last time Jeep sold a pickup truck was in 1992, when the Comanche was discontinued.

But what will the new Jeep look like? 
Prediction of new Jeep Wrangler pickup

It is rumored that the new-generation of Jeep Wrangler will make an appearance at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November along with other new Jeep projects scheduled for 2017-18 release.

The company has not released any details or images of the new Wrangler, but there are several concept versions produced over the years; as well as aftermarket conversion kit available to add a truck bed to the current-generation Jeep Wrangler through Fiat Chrysler’s parts and accessories division. The new pickup is said to make its debut in mid-2018.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will invest $1 Billion to the Toledo, Ohio and Warren, Michigan plants to build three new vehicles. The company said this will also create 2,000 new jobs. The new Wrangler truck production, which are said to go on sale in 2018, will take place in the Toledo plant. The Toledo Assembly Complex is the company’s only source of Jeep Wrangler’s worldwide.  The plant in Warren, Michigan will produce the Jeep Wagoneer and Jeep Grand Wagoneer SUVs. FCA anticipates completion date for both plants refitting will be 2020.
