Auto News

Car haulers loaded with 2014 Jeep Cherokee SUVs have finally begun leaving the Toledo, Ohio assembly complex where they were put together. The SUVs are due to hit dealerships two months ago but were held back by Chrysler while they developed and installed software to smooth out the engine, nine-speed transmission, and disconnecting drivetrain interaction.

Jeep has announced that it expects to begin delivering the Cherokees over the next 10 days. No official comment has been offered on the new delivery schedule. However, dealerships to begin getting changes in the status on over the units last week indicating the vehicles were ready to ship.

Chrysler has built about 23,000 Cherokees since they began producing up in June of 2013. The vehicles have been stored in large parking lots across parts of Michigan and Ohio until the software patch was validated and applied.
