The fate of Wrangler production has been up in the air recently, but Jeep execs just announced plans to keep operations going at their Toledo, Ohio plant. That wasn’t the only good news coming from the announcement, they also hinted at starting production on a pickup truck version of the Wrangler.
There are currently no real details surrounding what the specs of the truck will be, but it was noted that the truck will be based on the next-generation Wrangler which will likely include a diesel or small turbocharged motor. Seeing as the Wrangler doesn’t have a very big frame, it’s speculated the truck will be a midsize to compete with the Chevy Colorado and Toyota Tacoma. We should be seeing some sort of concept released in the near future since Jeep is hoping to have the truck arrive on the market by 2017 or early 2018. What are your thoughts on this bold move by Jeep?
