Last JK Wrangler Rolls Out Of Toledo Plant
The last JK Jeep Wrangler rolled out of the FCA U.S. Toledo Supplier Park today. Jeep built more than 2.1 million JK Wrangler and JKU Wrangler Unlimited models during the last 12 years. A white 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon was the last vehicle to roll off the assembly line. The last JKUR will remain with Jeep as one of its show vehicles.
Jeep will retool the Toledo plant ahead of the production of the all-new 2019 Jeep pickup, which will begin in the first half of 2019. We expect the automaker to bring back the Scrambler name which used on the 1981-1985 Jeep CJ-8 Scrambler pickup.
“This workforce has been working practically non-stop for the past several years to fulfill the dreams of Jeep enthusiasts around the world who want to go where only a Wrangler can take them,” said Chuck Padden, Toledo Assembly Complex Manager, in a release. “We take great pride in the role we have played in the history of this vehicle and the impact it has made in the Toledo community. We look forward to bringing that same commitment to the all-new Jeep truck.”
Jeep began production of the 2018 JL Jeep Wrangler on the north side of the Toledo Assembly Complex in November 2017.
