As demand for the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited surges globally, the one-millionth unit has just rolled off the assembly line.
Chrysler has just announced that this past Friday (May 17) the one-millionth Jeep Wrangler rolled off the production line at the automaker’s Toledo, Ohio assembly plant. Now, it’s important to note that this is not the millionth Wrangler of all time, but rather of the current JK generation which hit the market back in 2007. The current Wrangler has further grown in popularity since its 2010 facelift and Jeep continues to pump them out in order to meet growing demand both in the US and overseas markets.
Available in both two- and four-door body styles the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited come standard with a new 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 that’s good for 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque and is paired with either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic. Without question, this new more powerful and fuel efficient engine has had a huge impact on sales. Buyers can also opt for the Rubicon off-roading package along with a number of add-ons from the Mopar parts catalogue. The latest word around town is that the 2015 Wrangler will benefit from yet another refresh and a diesel engine option could even be added. Until then, Wrangler production will continue at full-force.
