The coronavirus pandemic has thrown a massive wrench in the production plans of every automaker in the United States. With factories starting to fire up again, (and some shutting right back down) the tentative schedule for the rest of the year is starting to become more clear. Thanks to the folks over at JLWranglerForums, we now have a look at the alleged production and ordering schedules for the 2021 Jeep Wrangler.
The news comes from forum administrator Jay. According to the post, the last day to order a 2020 model year Jeep Wrangler will fall on June 4. The early-summer deadline comes as the company positions itself to open the 2021 model year order books the following month on July 8th.
Following the opening of the order books, FCA will begin production of the 2021 Jeep Wrangler on August 10 at their Toledo Assembly complex, with deliveries following shortly thereafter. That is of course as long as FCA is able to keep the production line going as the threat of a second wave looms over the nation.
Just this week we witnessed as Ford moved to close down two of their plants after workers returning to the line tested positive for COVID-19. The facilities affected produce the Explorer SUV and the F-150 pickup, two of the company’s most important money making vehicles. This is likely going to be a common occurrence as Detroit’s automakers attempt to get back to some sense of normalcy.
As a result, the dates listed above are subject to change should the Toledo Assembly plant have to close its doors once again amid the pandemic. If you are in the market for a 2021 Jeep Wrangler, be sure to check back for the latest updates pertaining to the ordering and production schedule.
