I think we're getting a "pickup" instead.
"All-new" American pickups are rarely all new. The "all new" F150 was largely all-new in the move from steel to aluminum for the body the chassis was carryover.
An "all-new" Ram is coming, but because the Ram is pretty good for a pickup
as is, there really is no need to start from scratch.
My fear is that when they create the FCA "Suburban" and call it a Jeep Wagoneer that the pickup underpinnings will be as readily apparent as they are on the Escalade.
Saying that the Jeep Grand Cherokee can't be stretched is BS because the Dodge Durango is precisely that.
Killing the current Durango and letting it re-emerge as a Jeep and then reskinning the Pacifica for a large crossover for Dodge or Chrysler would have been a better move.
It's looks like we're getting a Ram, with a wagon body bolted on that has a Jeep grille.
