According to a report on the Chrysler Communications Facebook page and one fairly grainy image of the production line, at around 11:00AM Eastern this morning, the one-millionth Jeep Wrangler JK will roll out of the company's Toledo assembly plant.

The third-generation or "JK" Jeep Wrangler has been around since the 2007 model year, and has obviously been more popular than ever. With a greater than ever number of trim levels, two-door and four-door Unlimited models and hardy off-roading Rubicon packages, the JK offers more to choose from than ever for those looking for something in a traditional Jeep. In fact, with the modern 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 powering it, the 2012 model year saw more than 140k Wrangers sold here in the US; the best-ever figure for the model.

With a model refresh due out for the Wrangler in 2015 (along with the likely addition of a diesel engine option), we expect that sales will continue to roll right along, too.

        .....maybe. Personally, I can think of many ways that I'd spend $4000 for options on my new Wrangler besides a costly upgrade drivetrain that sucks down expensive fuel. The 3.6 has plenty of torque.

      The title should have read "Millionth Jeep Wrangler JK to roll into the junk yard this morning"

      Rolling off the line and then getting towed to dealer lots for warranty repairs.

        I think they have less major issues than most other vehicles.... There isn't much to break... But little things like the radio keeping time and the roof leaking a little when it rains do happen for every Wrangler owner at some point

      Get rid of it. Its way past its sell by date and has begun to smell.

      I always viewed these as theft-prone, high NVH, low fuel economy, not particularly attractive outdated vehicles with poor suspensions. But for some reason they are really popular with lesbians and... well, I'm sure other people drive them too.

        Any outdoorsy-oriented vehicle will be a hit with lesbians (who typically are very much into outdoorish/guy stuff). See Subaru for more proof.

        because they don't feel like missing out on a truly unique motoring experience and fun, unlike yourself.

      Here's to one of the most successful vehicle lines in history and to building a million more.

          Why, in YOUR opinion, is it moronic to congratulate the owner of Jeep for building their millionth?

          It\'s the same reason I don\'t congratulate the school corporation for my kid\'s teacher doing a good job. I prefer to congratulate the people involved at the ground level rather than the people just signing paperwork and approving budgets. I get the corporate level is needed, but most of the hardwork takes place on a smaller level. For the record, Daimler (not Mercedes) sold Chrysler to Cerberus in 2007.

      I like the jeep but what's the big deal? It's being way outsold by less "Iconic" models like the Escape and the Edge is nipping at it's heels with almost 128K sold in the last year. The only thing going for it is the Rubicon.

      I love the Wrangler, and on some level would love to own one - but man, these things don\'t come cheap. I saw one on the lot for upwards of $25k for what isn\'t much more than a grown man\'s toy. I\'m just a poser who doesn\'t need all the utility these things provide, but I do love the rugged capability. That said, I can\'t justify all the baggage with the high prices and poor fuel economy these have attached.
