    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 stinks, but I can understand it. It's probably tough to launch two, on roughly the same platform.

    It sucks to hear that it was delayed but it will give me more time to save up for one.

    I just hope that it won't end up on the cutting room floor.

    That sucks. I was looking forward to this more than the JL.

    I guess I'm going to have to get a traditional pick up. Damn, I am looking forward to seeing this truck.

    With all the delays it will be interesting to see how much of the JK vs JL will be in the eventual JT.

    Well, not what I wanted to hear. I have a funny feeling I'm never going to see this Jeep truck come to fruition. Bummer.
