Automotive News, after speaking with Fiat-Chrysler dealers after one of the carmaker's meetings last week, found out the coming Jeep Wrangler pickup should hit dealers in April 2019. The dealers said that was the only new bit of information in the hour-long confab. We know production begins in the fourth quarter of this year, but we don't know when we'll get our first look at the bedded Wrangler.
