WP_Query() show posts that end later than today

I have a query as follows:

$wp_query = new WP_Query( 
   'meta_key'     => 'end_date', 
   'meta_value'   => 'today', 
   'meta_compare' => '>=', 
   'post_type'    => 'vehicle' 

I want to show only those posts of the vehicle post type that have the meta key end_date which contains a date that is later than today’s date.

How can this be accomplished?

First, your date format has to be in descending order from largest to smallest units, i.e.: year, month, day, hour, minute, second, etc., otherwise MySQL can’t query or order on the field. In this example I use year – month – day:

$today = date( 'Y-m-d' );
$args = array(
    'post_type' => 'vehicle',
    'meta_query' => array(
            'key' => 'end_date',
            'value' => $today,
            'compare' => '>=',
            'type' => 'DATE'
$query = new WP_Query( $args );
