Jeep Wrangler to debut in LA, Ram truck heading to Detroitby Drew Johnson
Two important FCA products will be introduced over the next few months.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has confirmed that it will unveil its all-new Jeep Wrangler at next month's Los Angeles auto show. The company has also confirmed when we'll see its next-generation Ram pickup.
As expected, the Jeep brand will officially lift the veil on its new Wrangler at the 2017 LA auto show, set to take place during the last week of November. Leaks about the new Wrangler have been slowly trickling in, but we should have the official specs within the next few weeks.
Production of the Wrangler will commence at Jeep's Toledo South and North production lines during the fourth quarter of 2017. Jeep will halt Wrangler production on the South line sometime around Q1 of 2018 in order to retool for the production of a new Jeep-badged pickup truck.
Additionally, FCA confirmed its Ram truck division will unveil an all-new pickup truck model at the 2018 Detroit auto show. That truck will begin production at the company's Sterling Height plant — which previously built the Chrysler 200 sedan — during the first quarter of 2018. The Ram's current Warren Truck Plant will be retooled at that time for production of Jeep's new Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer models.
