Is this something people have actually been asking for?

A Jeep Wrangler Pickup Is Finally Coming: Report

Finally — FINALLY — Jeep is reportedly set to give the masses the Wrangler pickup truck they’ve been screaming for for years. That’s according to a new dispatch from Automotive News, which also reports Wrangler production will stay in Toledo, Ohio where it belongs.

The Wrangler truck would launch in 2017 or 2018 around the time the all-new Wrangler is set to debut, AN reports.

AN reports details will be announced after Fiat Chrysler concludes contract negotiations with the United Auto Workers union this month. Until this report came out, residents of Toledo weren’t sure whether they’d keep Wrangler production and all the jobs that come with it.

Unfortunately, according to this report, production of the Cherokee will move out of Ohio, likely to Michigan. Ideally they’d make it up with Wrangler truck production.

Can't wait to see the price for a wrangler truck with 1/4 of the amenities of any other truck on the market.

As long as it doesn't turn out all gay like the wanna be lifted car that is the Jeep Cherokee! Not sure if that things supposed to be a Nissan Juke wanna be or a car.

That abortion is a disgrace to the Jeep name thanks FCA, way to destroy a Cherokee.

As long as this keeps the traditional Jeep Wrangler style Im sure they will sell like Hellcats LOL!!

Well if they are calling it a Wrangler pickup, and it's being built in the factory alongside the Wrangler....I'm assuming it's going to be Wrangler based. If it was based on one of the other FWD based crossovers....it'd be built at that factory :dunno:

Also, IN if this what it ends up looking like (this is an aftermarket custom job...)

You obvioualy havn't done much research and just have blind hate. The new trailhawk is more off road capable than any "real" cherokee that was ever made and it's not a piece of crap to boot.

Im just say its ugly and looks like a wanna-be car with a lift kit.

And more off road capable than any of the Cherokee Classics? I doubt it please show me something to back up that claim of yours..........

Same thing with the patriots and the garbage CVT transmissions in them. Ive drove a few and the transmission never seemed happy at any speed. Or need to rev the piss out of it that resulted in more noise than actually anything happening.

Cherokee Classic > any new mess that's simply wearing the Cherokee badge......

Edit looking at Cherokee specs...... Some are FWD only?!! :rollpicard:

Another disgrace to the Jeep badge!

2014 Jeep Cherokee Not Recommended by Consumer Reports - Motor Trend WOT

Pfft!!! Opening line..........

While the 2014 Jeep Cherokee has been selling well since it went on sale in October, the new SUV failed to score high enough to make Consumer Reports’ list of recommended vehicles.

:s00ls::rofl::s00ls::rofl:

Yep sounds like an excellent vehicle to me LOL!!!

*cough* *cough* GARBAGE! albeit if it sells well still JUNK!

Every other Jeep owner on the planet must look at the people that drive these new disasters with the same disgust most of us look at a prius with........

That wrangler truck looks awesome minus the chrome.





The new Cherokee seems pretty pathetic. Capable compared to other cuv's but still pathetic in terms of actual offroad.
