Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne stated in a round table discussion this morning that Jeep will soon be getting a new “mulitpurpose” vehicle, which will have a pickup truck-like bed.
Marchionne recalled the 2005 Gladiator concept, “I like that vehicle. I liked it the first day I saw it. There’s a better than 50 percent chance that you’ll get one. Regardless of what Ram says. They’re totally peeved off at the fact that we’re going to have anything that looks like a pickup truck with a Jeep badge on it. I actually think that there’s space for it.”
According to Marchionne the only thing is that the Jeep “pickup” will not be referred to as a pickup. There’s no word when we will actually see this new Jeep.
