Toledo Assembly Complex Marks Production Of One-Millionth Jeep Wrangler JK
The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most iconic vehicles in the world and on May 17, 2013 the one-millionth JK model rolled off the assembly line at Chrysler Group’s Toledo (Ohio) Assembly Complex. Chrysler executives, plant employees, UAW representatives and supplier partners gathered at the end of the line to mark the occasion.
Mauro Pino, Chrysler Group’s Vice President of Vehicle Assembly Operations, and Dan Henneman, Jeep Unit Chairman of UAW Local 12, drove the black 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition, bound for a customer in Sarasota, Fla., off the final line to the applause of employees.
“Every Jeep Wrangler sold to customers around the world is born in Toledo, Ohio,” said Pino. “Since this facility opened eight years ago, the Toledo workforce has built every one of those million vehicles with pride, passion and a focus on quality. We all look forward to building the next million.”
Since 1941, Jeep - the original sportutility vehicle - has represented freedom, authenticity, adventure and passion.
From its start, the Jeep brand has continued to stay true to its heritage with a commitment to providing leading offroad capability in all of its vehicles. The enthusiasm held by Jeep team members and owners for the unique lifestyle made possible “only in a Jeep” is supported by vehicles that are known as the “original fun and freedom machines.”
“The Toledo workforce understands that the brand’s success is directly related to the quality of their work,” said Henneman. “They continue to rise to the challenge of meeting the demand for one of the most recognized SUVs and demonstrating their commitment to millions of Jeep enthusiasts.”
