TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio assembly plant has made its last Jeep Wrangler JK, bringing an end to its 12-year production run.
Fiat Chrysler’s plant in Toledo has built more than 2 million Jeep Wrangler JK vehicles since 2006. The last one rolled off the assembly line Friday.
The plant will begin preparing to make a new Jeep pickup truck in the first half of 2019.
The Toledo complex has been making the new version of the Wrangler since January.
