Could a Jeep Pickup Truck be in the Works?

Flying cars, self-driving cars, there are dozens of futuristic models that have the potential to be here much sooner than most of us expect. However, there’s another model that could be coming in the near future to be excited about as well. A new Jeep pickup truck is possibly in the works, and that definitely puts a smile on our faces here at Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep.

The last Jeep pickup truck that was around was the Comanche from 1986 to 1992, and we haven’t seen one since. That is, until 2018. Maybe (wink, wink).

According to sources, the highest probability of Jeep producing a pickup version would be in the next-generation Wrangler, arriving in 2018. This type of pickup truck would appeal to those looking for an outdoors and off-road focused truck, along with a style that so many people love already.

Mike Manley, head of Jeep, has given little detail about an actual pickup truck being built; however, he has revealed that he believes a pickup belongs in the lineup and that is enough for us. For now, anyways.

Both vehicles racked up numerous awards toward the end of 2013, and each continues to start 2014 off on the right foot with yet another important victory.

“For 2014, the Jeep Grand Cherokee embodies a readiness to head off into the hills as an affordable family hauler wrapped around class-leading interiors chockfull of the safety, technology and comfort features that set the Grand Cherokee at the top of the heap,” said Michelle Naranjo, editor-in-chief, Autobytel. “For the second year in a row, the award winning Ram 1500 continues to bring fuel efficiency and tech in a bold package to the value shoppers and accomplishment seekers who want to get the job done right.”

Autobytel praised the Jeep Grand Cherokee for its deep model roster, its expert-level refinement, and its hallmark off-roading prowess.  The Ram 1500 earned high marks for the new EcoDiesel V6 engine that drives it, as well as the eight-speed automatic transmission mated to it and the standard rear coil suspension that makes this Ram truck more responsive than ever.

Autobytel.com’s editors boast a combined 80+ years of experience behind the wheels of various vehicles, so their word is gold when it comes to what’s good in automotive.  This year’s Autobytel award winners were determined based upon the primary factors of innovation, design, and features.  In late 2013, the Ram 1500 was named Motor Trend’s 2014 Truck of the Year; the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee was trail rated as having best-in-class 4×4 capabilities and won the Cars.com/USA Today Mid-Size SUV Challenge head-to-head against all other comers.
