Jeep CEO Mike Manley on the Upcoming Jeep Pickup

2005 Jeep Gladiator Concept Pickup
Jeep has been teasing us with hints of the return of the Jeep pickup truck for years.  They have rolled out one concept truck after another, including the Gladiator, J12, Mighty FC, Nukizer, and the JT.  These concepts have been so enthusiastically received that Jeep and Mopar have even produced the JK-8 Independence kit that allows you to turn your own Wrangler Unlimited into a pickup.  But they have never confirmed any plans to actually produce a pickup themselves for regular retail sales.

Until now?

Fox News is reporting on their interview with Jeep CEO Mike Manley at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in which he all but confirms that the next generation of the Wrangler will also include a pickup variant.  Follow the link to watch the brief video interview and form your own opinion - has Jeep finally decided to produce a pickup variant of the next-generation Wrangler?

  1. If I can turn my jeep into a pick up any time I please then I am sorted. I would personally go for this jeep any time.
