Report: Chrysler Extending Production of Current Jeep Wrangler

New Model Now Expected In 2018

Edward A. SanchezJul 25, 2013
Just as we reported yesterday that the current-generation Ford F-150 will be reportedly built concurrently with the all-new 2015 model , The Detroit News is reporting that Chrysler is planning on extending the lifespan of the current JK Jeep Wrangler to 2018, which will give the model an 11-year total product run. Its predecessor TJ model had a 9-year model run from 1997 to 2006.

The Wrangler was reportedly scheduled to get a full redesign in 2016 for the 2017 model year. The all-new model may not come until mid-2018, making it possibly a 2019 model. Despite retaining a rudimentary live front and rear axle and body-on-frame design, the Wrangler is one of Jeep's best-selling models, and among the best-selling midsize SUVs on the market. The JK Wrangler has won multiple awards from off-road enthusiast titles for its off-road capability, especially in Rubicon trim.
Jeep chief Mike Manley hinted that a diesel option could be coming for the Wrangler , but with this latest news, it's unknown whether we'll see it in the JK, or the next-generation model. In addition to the Wrangler, production of the Dodge Avenger sedan has reportedly been extended to 2015, and the Dodge Grand Caravan will continue in its current form through the end of 2017.
