  • Jeep Wrangler pickup truck reportedly headed for production
  • The truck will likely debut alongside the next-generation Wrangler in 2018
  • Jeep has yet to confirm the status of the upcoming Wrangler pickup

Is Jeep planning to build a pickup truck based on its Wrangler SUV? New reports say it's not only possible, it's likely. The brand is beginning to retool its assembly plant in Toledo, Ohio, to accommodate an all-new version of the Wrangler due out in the next few years.

According to reports in Automotive News and Detroit Free Press, a Wrangler pickup would be added to the existing Jeep Wrangler lineup, which currently includes a 2-door version and a 4-door model dubbed the Wrangler Unlimited. Production of the new Wrangler, including its pickup variant, would remain at the brand's Toledo factory, the Wrangler's home for more than 20 years and the same factory that produced Willys Jeeps during World War II.

A Wrangler pickup? Believe it or not, it isn't as far-fetched as you might imagine. Enthusiasts have shown interest in a Wrangler pickup for years, and the automaker rolled out a concept version, dubbed the Jeep Gladiator Concept, at the Detroit Auto Show in 2005. Several aftermarket companies, including American Expedition Vehicles, offer Wrangler-to-pickup conversions for drivers who thought Jeep would never roll out a factory model.

Unfortunately for drivers eager to get their hands on a pickup version of the Wrangler, the model is still unconfirmed, and even if it receives a green light for production, it'll be a few years away. A Wrangler pickup would almost certainly debut alongside the release of the next-generation Jeep Wrangler, which isn't expected to reach showrooms until 2018.

The idea of a Wrangler pickup is exciting for shoppers eager to get more from the go-anywhere SUV. We'll make sure to track the story and provide updates as details are released.

What it means to you: A Jeep Wrangler pickup could very well be the most versatile truck on the market.
