According to The Toledo Blade, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler will begin production in November. This follows after the brand ceases production of the Jeep Cherokee at the Toledo Assembly Complex.
Despite Fiat Chrysler Automobiles still restraining details on the launch date of the all-new Wrangler, Bruce Baumhower, president of the United Auto Workers Local 12, affirmed that the factory will kick off production in November.
It’s reported that Jeep will terminate the production of the existing Wrangler some time in March while the production of the Cherokee will be shifted from its plant to its Belvidere, Illinois facility in early April.
It will require about five months for the Toledo factory to be retooled to be able to begin production of the 2018 Wrangler. Earlier reports have revealed that the all-new Wrangler will be utilizing aluminum in its build and despite not being an entire body made out of lightweight material, there hasn’t been anything quite like this for the model.
