Jeep has announced that they will begin producing the 2018 Jeep Wrangler starting in November. The company will build the Wrangler at the Toledo Assembly Complex in which it was building its Jeep Cherokee up until about 7 months ago. The beginning production date for the vehicle is based on a report in The Toledo Blade. Although Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has not yet announced a launch date for their next-generation Wrangler, Bruce Baumhower, United Auto Workers Local 12’s president, has confirmed that production of the Wrangler will begin at the plant in November.

Jeep is expected to stop producing the current model of the Wrangler in March. Beginning in April the company will shift the Cherokee production from its current plant into its facility located in Belvidere, Illinois. According to reports it is going to take about five months for the company to retool the plant in Toledo in preparation to build the 2018 Wrangler. Not very long ago, it was revealed that the construction of the all-new Wrangler will be done with aluminum. Although the Wrangler will not have a body entirely made of the lightweight material, it’s the first time aluminum will be used on the model.

In an interview recently published in The Toledo Blade, Baumhower said that testing and development of the next generation of Jeep’s iconic Wrangler SUV is in the final stage and said production of the vehicle would begin by the end of 2017. He also shared a few other details about the process including where it will be manufactured. Baumhower said adapting the facilities and the assembly line will require major adjustments. He explained that the Wrangler’s current generation will continued to be produced at the plant and the work shift will vary from six to seven days a week.

The current model of the Jeep Wrangler will continue to be produced until about March 2018, sources say. That means both the old generation Wrangler and the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler will both be produced for a few months. Once the new Wrangler is introduced, a pick-up version of Jeep’s new Wrangler will follow soon afterwards. Plus it’s will not be surprising if the company plans to produce a wide range of special editions of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, as well. This will allow the company to meet the needs of Jeep Wrangler lovers that are looking for their own unique version of the iconic automobile. If you can wait, you should be able to check one out at Chapman Chrysler Jeep later in the year, but if you can’t, you can check out a 2017 Jeep Wrangler – you are sure to be impressed.

As for how the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler will look, there are a number of spy photos revealed in recent months. Those photos show a revolutionary new design, even as the company works to maintain the vehicle’s iconic look. The 2018 Jeep Wrangler will also feature several technological and mechanical upgrades. These major changes have resulted in a Wrangler that’s more advanced and efficient. While the spy photos have helped to give people a general idea of what the new Wrangler looks like, they’ll have to wait until April to see it live and up close.
