Production of the 2018 model year Wrangler JL, which is set to debut sometime this year, will begin on November 13th, 2017 at the Toledo North section of the facility. The plant will continue producing the Jeep Cherokee mid-size crossover until April 7th, 2017, when it will be shut down to retool for the Wrangler JL.
