Is Jeep interested in doing a pickup?

Several times last decade, Jeep seemed on the verge of creating a compact or mid-sized pickup before bailing out.

But things may have changed now that Fiat is in charge.

"That's a segment that I'm very curious about," says Mike Manley, Jeep CEO. "I know it's had a rough time here in the U.S., but globally it still seems to be an important sector."

Manley is quoted in a story that appears at news.pickuptrucks.com.

The last Jeep pickup was the Comanche, produced in 1992.
