Final Jeep Wrangler JK Rolls Off the Assembly Line
TOLEDO, OH--After more than 12 years of production, the final Jeep Wrangler JK has rolled off the assembly line at the FCA Supplier Park here. Approximately 2.1 million Wranglers were built during this time. The plant will now begin retooling for the all-new Jeep truck that is scheduled to launch in the first half of 2019.
The final unit is a white 2018 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited and will become one of Jeep’s show properties. To celebrate the occasion, Toledo Assembly Complex employees took pictures with the SUV as it rolled off the line.
Production of the Jeep Wrangler JK began in 2006 and has been part of an innovative supplier co-location concept, where supplier partners build and manage key manufacturing process facilities completely within the plant footprint. The American automaker will continue using the system to produce the new Jeep truck. FCA says Kuka will remain the supplier for the body, while Hyundai Mobis will supply the chassis.
