Jeep is Seriously Contemplating the Rebirth of the Jeep Wrangler Truck Concept
ELIZABETH CITY, NC - Here we go again, Jeep lovers. In a week FULL of rumors regarding the resurrection of previously dead vehicles (Ford Ranger and Ford Raptor) Jeep has entered the mix with what could be a "dropping the mike" of sorts; Jeep is seriously contemplating the rebirth of the Jeep Wrangler truck concept!
A report from Automotive News quotes personnel from a recent Fiat Chrysler Automobiles meeting saying a Jeep-branded midsize pickup "could begin production in 2018"! FCA sees the Ranger and Bronco announcement, and raises you a WRANGLER PICK-UP ANNOUNCEMENT! Our minds are totally blown right now! The report also states that the truck would have a short bed and make use of the Wrangler suspension bits and powertrains.
A final design decision has not yet been made, however that doesn't keep Jeep enthusiasts from bouncing a few ideas around. One of the most popular is the photo shown above, the Gladiator concept from 2005. Its production-ready appearance and sweet-looking side-mounted spare had the Jeep Wrangler faithful salivating, but the project never left the ground.
If the reports are valid and Jeep is seriously contemplating the rebirth of the Jeep Wrangler truck concept, 2018 is starting to shape up as a BIG year in the automotive industry.
