Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has confirmed the released date of their all new Wrangler JL in its third quarter results presentation. According to the slide, itís set to take place some time next month and according to AutoBlog
, the Wrangler based pickup should be revealed shortly after.
After the official reveal, the Wrangler JL will go into production at the Toledo North assembly plant before this year ends and the older model will continue to roll down the Toledo South assembly line until the first quarter of 2018. Once production has ended, the factory will be retooled in preparation of the Jeep Wrangler pickup.
When all is said and done, FCA's Toledo Assembly Complex should be able to crank out around 300,000 Wrangler JLs a year as of 2018, maybe even more due to the similar design between the pickup and standard models. In order to achieve these numbers, The Blade
said FCA has spent $700 million in factory line retooling, hired 700 new employees and provided 2,200 employees with additional training.
Still, much of the Scramblerís specs is under wraps as is the exterior design, but we may hear a few snippets at Jeepís scheduled major press conference on November 29 at the LA Auto Show. Assuming thatís the official 2018 Wrangler JL reveal date, the Scrambler may debut before the year ends.
