May 20, 2013 12:00 AM

The Jeep Wrangler recently celebrated a milestone that few cars manage to reach. Chrysler Group's Toledo Assembly Complex produced the 1 millionth Wrangler ever - a black Rubicon 10th Anniversary Edition - and the automaker recognized the moment with a special celebration.

More than 600 workers and executives were on hand to honor the 1 millionth car, which is headed to Florida to go to one lucky customer. 

"Every Jeep Wrangler sold to customers around the world is born in Toledo, Ohio," said Mauro Pino, a vice president with Chrysler. "Since this facility opened eight years ago, the Toledo workforce has built every one of those million vehicles with pride, passion and a focus on quality. We all look forward to building the next million." 

Jeep has been producing vehicles since 1941, but the Wrangler has cemented its place as one of the most popular vehicles in the U.S. since its introduction several years ago. The latest design has been on the market since 2007 and is still going strong. However, drivers can expect some updates and auto repair coming to the vehicle before a redesign in 2015, AutoBlog reports.
