2014 Jeep Cherokee facing production delay
Chernoby maintains that the issues being encountered aren't unusual for the launch of a new vehicle – particularly one with a new powertrain – and he downplayed the delay, telling Jeep dealers that they "will have ample inventory of the midsize SUV by fall." Among the kinks being worked out? Calibrating the Cherokee's cutting-edge ZF nine-speed automatic transmission and refining assembly line tasks to make the process more efficient.
Chrysler expects to start building retail-ready versions of the Cherokee around mid-June, with official sales slated to start in September.
