    David Lambries says:
  • This is the truck a lot of people including me have have been wanting for years Im glad Jeep Finally made it Happen The Best Part is they Will Offer a 6 Cylinder Turbo which I think is the best choice .I love Midsize Trucks like The Toyota Tacoma but Toyotas look old and have been staying behind in design and have failed to deliver a 6 cylinder Turbo Diesel like the one found on the Hilux Pick up .Ill be trading in my Silverado for one of these Thats for sure.

    Anthony Baez says:
  • I am personaly looking for a new truck in the near future. The new Jeep truck was at the top of my list. I was so disapointed to find out it was not comming out with an engine big enough to pull a light wight 23ft. Travel trailer. Please Jeep bring on an optional package that can handle a 8000 lb towing capacity. Small V8 , or Diesel that can pull it. Mid size truck should handle mid sise loads. Be the one brand .
