After 2.1 million units have rolled off the line, Jeep has announced that the last version of the Jeep Wrangler JK has been built at its plant in Toledo, Ohio. After 12 years in production, the Wrangler JK has now officially been replaced by the Wrangler JL.
The bigger news is that with the end of the Jeep Wrangler JK production, comes the beginning of the new Wrangler pickup. The extra room that the old Wrangler JK occupied at the Toledo plant will now be used by the new Jeep Wrangler, which is going to arrive in the first half of 2019.
“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. “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.”
Although Jeep has yet to reveal the new Wrangler pickup, it will reportedly arrive by April 2019.
