Jeep President Mike Manley, who's now at the Geneva Motor Show introducing his company's products in Europe, revealed that the Chrysler-owned brand is planning to extend it's range in the near future.

According to the 49-year old company representative, Jeep fans will finally get the long-awaited Wrangler-based pickup truck in 2016, along with a brand-new, bigger than the Grand Cherokee SUV.

Moreover, Manley also confirmed Jeep's intention of becoming a player in the smaller B-segment SUV class and plans for the Grand Wagoneer that's been rumored for a few years now.

Jeep had a great 2012 in terms of sales, topping its 1999 record with no less than 701,626 vehicles delivered. 68 percent of those cars were sold in the US.
