Jeep Boosting Production of Popular Wrangler by 50%

Jeep Boosting Production of Popular Wrangler by 50%

Mar 22, 2016







Production of the Jeep Wrangler is getting a boost.


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) plans to reconfigure its Toledo, Ohio, plant next year for the next-generation Wrangler and will also boost production of the current model well beyond its current level. The Toledo factory that currently builds the Jeep Cherokee will become the new assembly plant for the Wrangler, with the goal to produce around 350,000 units annually. Compared to right now, that’s about a 50-percent boost in production.

The American automaker also plans to continue building the current Wrangler into the first quarter of 2018, which is about six months after production of the next-generation model is set to begin.

According to internal documents obtained by Automotive News, the Toledo factory will continue to build the Cherokee until March 2017, when production will be moved to the company’s Belvidere, Illinois, plant. Toledo’s unibody plant will then undergo conversion to body-on-frame production, which will take about six months, but production of the current-generation Wrangler will continue.

That means the current Wrangler, known as the Wrangler Classic, will be produced through March 2018.

It is rumored that the next-generation Wrangler will also have a pickup truck variant sporting four doors.
