In an article below, the Jeep CEO, Mike Manley makes one of the strongest statements yet that I've read for a real push on the Jeep truck.

At this point, it seems a "truck" of some point is inevitable, just what and when.

LOL!! I so want to believe this... really want to believe this. However, I've been hearing this same song and dance over the last 10 years. Still, it is fun to dream. :yup:

I think what's maybe makes this a reality this time is FCA seeing the current hot hand and profits with Jeep. They have set some lofty goals for further increasing sales in the next 3-5 years. To meet those goals, the Renegade is going to be a big part of that push, but they will also need a few other models to increase their lineup and demographic exposure.

This makes me believe that a "truck" is coming this time, but that it could quite possibly not be wrangler based and therefore not be what a lot of the faithful have been waiting quite some time for.
