Final Jeep Wrangler JK Model Rolls Off the Assembly Line
As Jeep's newest generation of Wrangler vehicles achieve a strong start, the Jeep brand bids ado to the outgoing JK model
The brand-new Jeep Wrangler JL model can already be counted as a success for the Jeep brand. During the first few sales months for this latest generation of Wrangler vehicles, Jeep has already broken its record for the most Jeep Wranglers sold in a month. What’s more, it has broken this record twice.
Still, the Wrangler wouldn’t be where it is today without the previous Jeep Wrangler JK model. After more than 12 years of Wrangler JK production, the last Jeep Wrangler JK vehicle has rolled off the assembly line.

The final model for the Jeep Wrangler JK left the FCA US Toledo Supplier Park location on April 27. The Wrangler in question was a Rubicon Unlimited model with a white exterior.
Employees at the Toledo Assembly Complex marked this bittersweet occasion by taking pictures with the vehicle before it left the factory floor. After leaving the plant, the final Jeep Wrangler JK vehicle is set to become a show property for the Jeep brand.
“This workforce has been working practically non-stop for the past several years to fulfill the dreams of Jeep enthusiasts around the world who want to go where only a Wrangler can take them,” said Chuck Padden, Toledo Assembly Complex Manager. “We take great pride in the role we have played in the history of this vehicle and the impact it has made in the Toledo community.”
