IT’S CONFIRMED: Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Coming in 2017
The next-generation 2017 Wrangler will finally, finally include a pickup truck variant, Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne confirms.

Jeep fans have been clamoring for a Wrangler-based pickup truck for what seems like decades now. For all those years, Jeep teased us with pickup truck concepts, like the Gladiator concept and the J-12 concept shown above, but never pulled the trigger on a production model. That all changes for 2017: The next-gen Wrangler will finally, finally offer a pickup variant, right from the factory.

That’s the word from The Detroit News, as per a conversation with Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne. The CEO also confirmed that both the standard Wrangler and the pickup truck will be built in the Toledo, Ohio facility where the current Wrangler is assembled.

Jeep global chief Mike Manley told The Detroit News that the Wrangler pickup will arrive in late 2017. “Sergio and I work very, very closely on the Jeep product portfolio, and both of us have been a fan of a potential Wrangler pickup,” he said. “For me, there is a historical place in our lineup for it.”

2016 New Nissan Titan Coming to Monkens

We have an all new 2016 Nissan Titan X D Crew Cab 4wd Platinum model with cummins diesel coming in next week. Cummins diesel is a big draw in the world of trucks. This truck is designed to hit the sweet spot for those looking for capability without sacrificing driving quality. The Titan X D is a heavy 1/2 ton truck, more capable than a 1/2 ton, but a better ride and drive than a 3/4 ton. 200,000 people a year are trying to find that “in between truck”. They want the drive of a 1/2 ton truck but the capability and durability of a 3/4 ton.

Nissan is confident they “nailed” this market and it will have lots of industry firsts:
* LED lighting throughout the bed of the truck so the whole bed is illuminated
* Integrated 5th wheel trailer hitch
* One person can test all trailer lights functionality using the keyless remote while outside the vehicle
* Integrated camera for backup alignment of a fifth wheel PLUS the vehicle lets you know when the ball is centered over the hitch.
