Jeep Wrangler-based pickup spotted roaming on public roads in Michigan
DETROIT — Spy photographers have captured the first public images of Fiat Chrysler’s upcoming midsize pickup based on the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.The photos indicate that the as-yet-unnamed pickup will get the Wrangler’s design cues and off-road chops.
The pickup is projected to be at U.S. dealerships in 2019. Production is scheduled for the current Jeep Wrangler line at FCA’s Toledo, Ohio, assembly complex after the plant receives a new paint shop next year.
The pickup will follow the redesigned Wrangler SUV, which FCA plans to begin producing in November in Toledo. Both will feature a new fuel-efficient eight-speed automatic transmission and improved aerodynamics.
