Chrysler reveled today, May 17, that they've produced the one-millionth Jeep Wrangler at Chrysler Group's Toledo Assembly Complex in Ohio.

The Jeep Wrangler has earned a reputation over the years as one of the most iconic and reliable models around the world today, and Chrysler's state-of-the-art plant is a big reason for that.

"Every Jeep Wrangler sold to customers around the world is born in Toledo, Ohio," said Mauro Pino, Chrysler Group's Vice President of Vehicle Assembly Operations. "Since this facility opened eight years ago, the Toledo workforce has built every one of those million vehicles with pride, passion and a focus on quality. We all look forward to building the next million."

Since 1941, Jeep has stayed true to their commitment to provide leading off-road capability in all their vehicles, including the Wrangler.

Named after America's most demanding off-road trail, the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition has been called "the most capable production vehicle ever" by Jeep, and for good reason.

The limited-production model is features a number of off-road equipment for Wrangler fans such as all-new steel winch-capable bumpers with removable end caps, additional ground clearance, new rock rails and BF Goodrich KM2 Off-road Tires according to Jeep.

"The Toledo workforce understands that the Jeep brand's success is directly related to the quality of their work," said Henneman. "They continue to rise to the challenge of meeting the demand for one of the most recognized sport-utility vehicles worldwide and demonstrating their commitment to millions of Jeep enthusiasts."

The Toledo Assembly Complex's Supplier Park began production of the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited in 2006. Located on the same site as the former Stickney Plant, the complex includes body and chassis operations, produced in partnership with suppliers Kuka and Mobis, respectively.

The Toledo Assembly Plant will also produce the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee later this year.
