Jeep Cherokees finally ready to ship

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.

Pickups buyers take to the aftermarket in droves to make their tough trucks look tougher, but for 2015, Chevy is doing some of the toughing up for them with two new Rally packages for its full-size Silverado 1500. Building on the no-frills Silverado LS trim level, the new Rally 1 package adds a body-color grille with a black bowtie, black mirror caps and door handles, and two thick black “rally” stripes—a la ’69 Camaro Z/28—on the hood.

Jeep Wrangler Rubicon X - Driven

Aug 20 2014 3:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

When people talk about cars that symbolize America, they usually talk about trucks or muscle cars. For my money, though, there is nothing more American than a Jeep Wrangler. Born from the Willys MB that conquered the land during World War II, the modern Wrangler still embodies the same virtues of rugged simplicity from all those decades ago.At least, that is how it looks from an exterior design point, but the newest Wranglers have satel ...
