Toledo Jeep History
Jeep® is fundamental to Toledo’s heritage. In 1941, Willys-Overland won a significant United States Military contract to design the Willys MB, a four-wheel drive utility vehicle that was manufactured throughout World War II. Today, Toledo is the only place in the world making the iconic Jeep Wrangler and is also the home of the Jeep Cherokee. Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s Toledo Assembly Complex is one of the region’s largest and most modern manufacturing plants. For nearly eight decades Jeep has been touching the lives of Toledoans – and people throughout the United States and abroad, and in August 2018 the City and its visitors will celebrate that rich history.
