    Question Jeep Pick-Up Delayed Until 2019

    Just read an article in Road & Track written by Chris Perkins and according to it, the all new Jeep JT Pick-Up Truck has been pushed back a bit further and won't be released until 2019. Kind of a bummer but in a lot of ways, I'm kind of glad. Sure would be hard to take on 2 projects at the same time

    So how about you, what do you think about this delay?

    In a 2016 interview with The Detroit News at the Detroit Auto Show, Jeep CEO Mike Manley said that the Wrangler pickup would arrive in late 2017, following the debut of the next-generation JL Wrangler.

    Unfortunately, Jeep has since delayed pickup production until late 2019, nearly two years after the next-generation Wrangler is set to arrive. Manley says that he wants to make sure there are no issues with Wrangler SUV production before Jeep starts building the pickup. Both Wrangler models will be built at Jeep's Toledo, Ohio plant, which is undergoing a $700 million upgrade to prepare for the new vehicles.

    We should see the Wrangler debut in SUV form later in 2017, but Jeep hasn't announced when the pickup will make its debut.

    That is a bummer for sure but it will give me more time to save up for one.

    As a general rule I dislike delays when waiting for something. However, this buys me more time to convince my wife that we NEED one when the time comes to replace her little SUV

    Unfortunately it make some sense. Trying to bring two major models to the table at the same time could be a fiasco. Just sucks having to wait longer.

    I am sorry to say but the Toyota 70 series with the 4.2 or the 4 litre v6 petrol has already been shown to be a winner for reliability and for easy of repair. Problem is due to emissions and crash protection it will never see the shores of America. So the new jeep has a lot of proven competition in the non free world.

    Bitter-sweet for me. I'm about to be in the market for a midsize pickup and really want Jeep to put a solid product on the dealer's lot. Maybe some of the geezers like me on the forum remember the days Chrysler had some of the best engineering in America but the build quality was crappy. They damn near went belly up. Toyota, Nissan, and Chevy/GMC build nice midsize trucks, but the Jeep pkup - now that's different. I'll wait.
    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy a beer which is pretty close!
