That Jeep Pickup is still coming according to Mike Manley, the head of Jeep Brand.
Speaking from a product preview, Manely spoke about the anticipated new pick up and that it will be appearing on dealership showrooms at the first half of 2017. He did pepper a bit of caution to drivers in the announcement, however. He said that putting a Jeep Pickup out will have a cost associated with it, seeming to hint that the Jeep Pickup may be seen a premium purchase.
Manley went on to say that Jeep is working hard on the Compass and Patriot replacement. This new model is being called by the Jeep engineers as the C-SUV and is planned to be revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show this November with it then winding up on the showroom by early 2017. This new Jeep will be using the Renegade’s platform and will still likely be called either the Compass or Patriot.

At the sixth annual Hispanic Motor Press Awards at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2016 Jeep Renegade won in the “SUV Compact” segment.
“The committee had a very tough time selecting this year’s Autos de Hoy,” said the judge director Ricardo Rodriguez-Long. “Still, the on- and off-road driving dynamics of the Jeep Renegade and the best-in-class hauling capability of the Ram 3500 each stood out as a great vehicle option for Hispanic families in the United States.”
The people making the choices of which cars are the best is a committee of 16 Hispanic automotive journalists. Each person has one vote to determine which is the best value for Hispanic families. The vehicles all get tested and evaluated for design, comfort, safety, performance, and others.
The Jeep Renegade has been one of the most popular new SUVs on the market. It was designed by some of the youngest members on the Jeep team and made for the purpose of attracting a new younger crowd to Jeep. It has since begun a claim in the sales charts and has won over numerous critics. The Jeep Renegade seems to be making a name for itself by racking up the awards, just like the other members of the Jeep family.
