Chrysler will build an all-new lifestyle pickup truck starting in late 2012, according to a report by Wheels.ca , a Canadian automotive site.
News of the pickup, referred to as the "TR Ram Life Style Truck," was provided via AutomotiveCompass, a consulting company, and several of Chryslers suppliers that were briefed on Chryslers future producing plans last week in Michigan.
The small hauler is said to be similar to the Honda Ridgeline, with unibody construction that will likely be based on Chryslers minivan platform. Chryslers minivans are built at a plant in Windsor, Ontario.
"Insiders say Chrysler is projecting yearly demand of between 15,000 and 20,000 vehicles for the pickup," said Wheels.
News of an unibody replacement for the aging Dodge Dakota body-on-frame midsize truck was announced in 2009, during Chryslers 2010-14 business plan briefing for analysts and journalists. The Dakota is expected to end assembly by the end of this year.

Both AutomotiveCompass, a leading industry research firm, and Chrysler suppliers revealed the automaker has assured to green-light the TR Ram Life Style Truck". Construction would start in October 2012 at the Windsor Assembly Plant, in Ontario.
This niche vehicle will likely become the spiritual successor to the Dodge Dakota and rival the Honda Ridgeline, sources said. Chrysler is reportedly projecting yearly demand of 15 thousand to 20,000 units.
