Question Jeep Wants A Pickup!

Jeep Wants A Pickup, But Will Chrysler Play Ball?

Friday June 24 2011




Jeep hasn’t offered a true pickup since the late and still lamented, Cherokee based 1986-92 Comanche (shown above). However, if brand CEO John Manley gets his way, it’s likely a Jeep with a bed will return to the lineup sometime in the future.

However, despite showing a concept during a dealer conference last year in Orlando, Florida, where a number of retailers expressed enthusiasm, the idea hasn’t yet been given the green light by Chrysler, though Manley remains optimistic.

If such a truck does come to market however, it will likely be a premium priced offering, rather than an entry-level truck. “A lot of the pickup market is commoditized. I would not want to do a commodity Jeep,” Manley said. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

A good Idea, and based on KK and KJ two Pick Ups could be built easily... and one would be a Dodge

Unhappy

Dodge cancelled the Comanche when they took over the Jeep brand, in favour of their Dodge Durango pickup.

Durango and RAM are very big and in most Cases for Europe they are too big... A smaller Pick Up could be interesting.
By the Way: The VW Amazon is sold not so bad here in Germany (I think because it is a VW, People are Buying VW here with closed Eyes...).
