That vehicle under a cover outside Fiat Chrysler's Toledo Assembly Complex in Ohio? It might be a 2018 Jeep Wrangler, say plant employees. Or it may be a decoy. The new Wrangler, which will enter production in November, is parked next to the current model.
Spy photos suggest the iconic off-roader's appearance has not changed much, though it will be longer, have improved aerodynamics and feature a fuel-saving 8-speed automatic transmission.
FCA is converting the north side of the complex, which previously built the Jeep Cherokee, from unibody to body-on-frame production to build the new Wrangler. In the first half of 2018, the south side of the complex, which builds the current Wrangler, will be renovated to build a Wrangler-based pickup.
