Jeep and Ram brand CEO, Mike Manley, reveals new information about the upcoming 2018 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler pickup truck, according to a recent report by Edmunds.com.

First up is the release schedule for next generation (codename: JL) Wrangler and its pickup truck variant. Mike Manley confirmed that the 2018 Wrangler will go on sale in the first half of 2017, according to the report. It is less than a year away. When will it be officially revealed? There is no official word on this yet, although many rumors point to the 2017 Detroit Auto Show in January. Production of the Wrangler pickup truck is scheduled to start later, in early 2018. Jeep is positioning the 2018 Wrangler pickup as the choice for off-road enthusiasts. There is no confirmation on the name for the new pickup truck from Jeep.

CEO made a very interesting statement, according to the report: “No morphing a three-door out of a four-door, or a four-door out of a three-door; that’s when you pick up compromises along the way,” he said. “We really tried to make sure we made the best two-door, the best three-door, the best four-door we can.” The current Wrangler comes in a two-door and four-door “Unlimited” versions. What is this three-door version he speaks of? Could the pickup truck version have three doors or are they making a hatchback variant?
