The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most iconic vehicles in the world and today 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.
Since 1941, Jeep – the original sport-utility 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 off-road 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.”
Named after America’s most demanding off-road trail, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition takes its place as the most capable production vehicle ever. The limited-production vehicle is loaded with hardcore off-road equipment for its enthusiasts including all-new steel winch-capable bumpers with removable end caps, additional ground clearance, new rock rails and BF Goodrich KM2 Off-road Tires.Source: Jeep
