The one millionth Jeep Wrangler built at Chrysler's Toledo Assembly Complex rolled off the line this morning.

Sales of Jeep's signature vehicle continue to be strong, said Plant Manager Zach Leroux. 

"The changes that we made to the interior in 2011 and the powertrain in 2012, the demand for the vehicle is just absolutely endless," he said. "It's a gorgeous vehicle."

The Wrangler has been built at the Toledo Assembly Complex since 2006. Prior to that, Wranglers were built at another Chrysler facility in Toledo which has since been demolished. Chrysler officials say about 4 million Wranglers have been built since 1986. 

Chrysler recognized the milestone with a ceremony at the production line.
