It’s been quite a while since the truck segment has seen a true master of off-roading take the streets, but that’s going to change in just a few years. Fiat Chrysler announced the return of a Jeep Wrangler pickup truck come 2019. While there’s no name and few solid specifications to go on, it looks to be a model that’s bound to dominate the segment.
Known for its off-road capability, the Jeep brand hasn’t seen a pickup truck since the Comanche was discontinued in 1992. The next Jeep pickup will be based on the renowned Jeep Wrangler, one of the brand’s most iconic vehicles.
Set to hit the market in late 2019, the new pickup could bear a familiar name. Fiat Chrysler executives are considering some Jeep nameplates of the past, though none has been confirmed just yet.
The Wrangler pickup will be built in the Toledo plant, just like its predecessors. A new Jeep Wrangler will officially launch towards the end of 2017 following a $700-million retooling.
If the new Jeep Wrangler pickup truck is anything like it’s rumored to be, then the competition better step up their game.
We here at Westpointe CDJR are pumped for the arrival of the new Jeep Wrangler pickup truck!
