Jeep Wrangler Pickup Delays Caused By Fear Of Failure

By  | 

Ever since the news came out that Jeep was working on a pickup truck there has been plenty of excitement. Now it looks as though there are delays and we are going to have to wait longer for the Jeep Wrangler pickup.

The news came from Mike Manley in a media launch event being held for the 2017 Jeep Compass. He said that the Jeep Wrangler pickup isn’t going into production until late in 2019.

This isn’t the first time that a proposed Jeep Wrangler pickup has been pushed back. It was originally said to be coming our way in late 2017 with the Wrangler SUV but was then pushed back until the middle of 2018.

The reason for the push back is due to the production of the Wrangler SUV not being in full scale production right now. Manley said that they want the SUV fully up and running before the launch of the Jeep Wrangler pickup. He said that the new 2018 Wrangler would be launching during the last quarter of 2017.

The goal for the Jeep Wrangler pickup is to launch it as a 2019 model and this is still possible. However what is more likely is that we will have to wait until 2020 before it makes its debut.
