Jeep Pickup Decision Coming “Pretty Soon”
text size: A- A+
Obviously, if there was a huge market to be had in Jeep pickup, they would have built them already, but the company is still considering the idea. The all-American brand’s president Mike Manley told CarAdvice that a decision on Gladiator production will be made “pretty soon”.
He added that Jeep might be able to offer a pickup version of the Wrangler with the next generation, expected in 2015 or 2016.
“Even though you could say it is a different Wrangler to your mainstream one, you would have to be very, very careful that the pick-up is a true Wrangler. Because it is such an icon, it is so important for Jeep,” Manley said.
The Jeep president seems to favor a two-door pickup over a four-door one, as this is much better off-road, thus preserving the Wrangler identity and prestige.

I don't see too many comments on the Jeeps you've had on this site... must be an American thing, I guess. Anyway, If Jeep does bring back their truck, I think it'll sell like hotcakes. They were really popular back in the days of old and you know how we Americans love our trucks. Yep, I'd like to see it again.
