Jeep Truck

They were supposed to release it a few years ago, but that's when the economy tanked. I've read more recently, sometime in 2013 is when it's coming. The Gladiator is the only one I've heard of. I love it and really wish they'd release it already! Last I heard, a 4 or 6 cylinder diesel was supposed to be in the works for it.

When it comes out, it'll likely have the same 3.0L VM Motori diesel that the Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 are getting next year.

Yeah, forgot about the RAM. You may be right about not competing because of that.

Although I'm not sure how many people that would buy a Jeep truck would actually buy a RAM instead. If I where to buy a full sized truck now I can guarantee it would be a Chevy/GMC (either a 1500 with the 6.2L V8 or a 2500 with the 6.6L Duramax/Alison).

Maybe so. I've always been a Chrysler guy. I didn't go to Jeep, Jeep came to me (Chrysler). So I would be one to buy the Ram if I were looking for a truck if the Jeep pick-up wasn't an option.

Any trucks Jeep builds won't compete with Ram. The Gladiator will be positioned more against vehicles like the Toyota Hilux. The Dakota is gone, its replacement is on-hold and, if/when it is replaced, it won't be a normal BOF truck-it'll be more like a better Honda Ridgeline or a smaller Chevy Avalanche.

If you want a full-size truck, it won't come from Jeep. So far, the CEO's of Jeep, Ram AND Chrysler as a whole have said that Jeep won't be building any direct Ram competitors. The Gladiator is to attract people who traditionally buy midsize Japanese pickups, and those who used to buy Dakotas.
