The Detroit News ran a story today claiming that Michael Manley, head of the Jeep brand, confirmed a Jeep pickup will be produced. However, careful reading of the quote given by the brand’s top executive reveals nothing but a hedge.
“Sergio [Marchionne, FCA CEO] and I work very, very closely on the Jeep product portfolio, and both of us have been a fan of a potential Wrangler pickup”, stated Manley to The Detroit News. “For me, there is a historical place in our lineup for it.”
TTAC reached out to Jeep today, but was given no comment.
