Jeep: Pickup Truck?

Jeep Considers Introducing Pickup Truck



Jun 22, 2010

Is Jeep preparing to introduce a pickup truck? That’s what PickupTrucks.com is reporting.

“Mike Manley, president and CEO of the Jeep brand, expressed great interest in the compact and midsize pickup truck market in a recent interview during the media's first drive of the 2011 Grand Cherokee,” says PickupTrucks.com.

The company, which hasn’t produced a pickup truck since the Comanche was phased out in 1992, has continued to release pickup truck concepts throughout the years.

“An apparently production-ready Jeep Scrambler made a brief appearance at the 2003 NADA convention in San Francisco before it was suddenly pulled after only a few hours. Nothing was heard from about that truck again. In 2005, Jeep showed the well-received Gladiator Concept. In 2007, there was the Jeep JT and in 2008, the J8 Sarge,” reminisces PickupTrucks.com.

Although Manley didn’t give any official word of a coming Jeep pickup, Autoblog surmises: “Considering that the Ford Ranger continues to sell in reasonably decent numbers despite not seeing any real updates since the Jurassic period and that the Mahindra pickup has generated a good bit of interest before even hitting the American scene, we have to wonder if there may be some pent-up demand for a small, capable pickup in America. In any case, don't expect any sort of official comment from Jeep... but feel free to keep your fingers crossed.”

I'm not too enthusiastic about it with the 3.7 engine ,I drove a Nitro with that engine and in my opinion it was dead in the ass.
