2017 Jeep Wrangler Is Almost Twice This Time Around

By  | 

While the annual capacity of Jeep is said to be about 240,000 vehicles each year, somehow Jeep always manages to send out more Jeep Wranglers and Cherokees that that. Jeep have had issues with the supply constrain and this has meant that they have found it hard to sell Wranglers in other countries but the US.

There is some good news though as this isn’t going to be the case anymore as the 2017 Jeep Wrangler is going to be produced at the Toledo plant. The Cherokee production will be moved to Illinois and this is going to cost Jeep over $300 million, while more is being spent on the plant in Toledo.

Following the retooling of the plant it is thought that twice the capacity of vehicles is going to be produced. It is hoped that capacity will be upgraded to 450,000 vehicles each year, an 87.5% jump from the 240,000 and more than 20% of the capacity, around 100,000 units will be dedicated to producing the Wrangler pickup.

This means around 700 more jobs will be created at the plant and in Belvidere it is hoped that a production target of more than 300,000 can be met for the Cherokee, with 1,000 more jobs being created.
