    Start Of The 2014 Jeep Cherokee Production Has Been Delayed (For A Month)

    The Detroit Fress Press reports that production of the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee has been delayed by month due to “wide range of issues”.

    “We did start with an initial scheduled plan of the third week in May, and now we are into mid-June. That is just due to a wide range of issues,” said Mark Chernoby, Chrysler’s senior vice president of engineering

    Those issues range from adjusting both tooling and manual tasks on the assembly line to properly calibrating the new nine-speed automatic transmission.

    “These are pretty much common issues with everything we launch. Especially if there is a major change with the powertrain,” said Chernoby.

    Even with this delay, Chrysler are telling dealers that they will have a full stock of Cherokee by the time they are expected to go on sale in the fall.

    Agree, fix the ugly and then take a few extra months to make sure it is really quality. This sounds like a disaster in the making for Jeep.
