Plant History: The Stickney Plant was built in 1942 and acquired from Autolite in 1964 for use as a machining and engine plant. In 1981, it was converted for vehicle production, building the Jeep Grand Wagoneer until the summer of 1991. The facility became the Toledo Assembly Plant when Chrysler Corporation acquired American Motors Corporation (AMC) in August 1987. In the fall of 1997, Toledo North Assembly Plant was built for the production of the Jeep Liberty, which launched in April 2001. The 2007 Dodge Nitro launched in August 2006 and the 2008 Jeep Liberty launched in July 2007. The last Dodge Nitro rolled off the line on Friday, Dec. 16, 2011. Production of the Jeep Liberty ended on Aug. 16, 2012. The all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee began production on June 24, 2013.

In November 2011, the Company announced that it would invest $500 million in the Toledo North Plant. A 260,000-square-foot expansion was added to the existing body shop and upgrades were made to all other areas of the assembly plant. In addition, a state-of-the-art, 26,000-square-foot Metrology Center was built to help improve vehicle quality by verifying key measurements to ensure accurate fit and finish.

The Company also announced that it would add a second shift of production or about 1,100 jobs at Toledo North in the third quarter of 2013. The second shift began on Aug. 19, 2013.

The Toledo Supplier Park was built in 2005 for the production of the Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited. The complex includes body and chassis operations in partnership with Kuka and OMMC, respectively, in buildings on the same site as Toledo North Assembly and the former Stickney Assembly. The paint shop was originally run in partnership with Magna, but in the first quarter of 2011, the Company assumed responsibility for paint operations. Production of the 2011 Jeep Wrangler began in August 2010. The last Wrangler JK rolled off the line on April 27, 2018, after building 2,165,678 of the iconic Jeep model.

FCA announced on July 14, 2016, that it would invest $700 million in Toledo's North plant to produce the next generation Jeep Wrangler. Approximately 700 new jobs will be added. To make room for the new Wrangler, production of the Jeep Cherokee ended on April 6, 2017. Since its introduction in 2013, 949,151 Cherokees rolled off the Toledo assembly line. Production of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler began in December 2017. Production of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe began in December 2020.

On Jan. 8, 2017, the Company confirmed that it would invest another $1 billion to retool and modernize Toledo's South plant to build an all-new Jeep pickup truck (introduced in November 2018 as the Jeep Gladiator) as well as the Warren Truck (Mich.) Assembly Plant to produce the all-new Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer. It was later confirmed as part of a February 2019 announcement that the Company invested $273 million in the south plant. The Jeep Gladiator began shipping to dealers on April 12, 2019.
