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.

Ram Trucks CEO Says No 707-hp Hellcat Pickup “At This Time”

Oct 30 2014 5:59pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The story at Chrysler these days is the supercharged Hellcat V-8 engine. Seriously, it’s a 707-hp engine you can buy in one of two relatively normal and inexpensive vehicles, the Charger and the Challenger. As exciting as that is, what really gets us excited is figuring out what Chrysler product the Hellcat will end up in next. We had lunch with Ram Trucks’ new CEO, Bob Hegbloom, and we had to ask: When will we see ...

Exploring in L.A.: Redone 2016 Ford Explorer Headed to Los Angeles Show

Oct 30 2014 12:41pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

The refreshed 2016 Ford Explorer is coming sooner than we thought when we recently spied the thing—it’s just weeks away. Look for the crossover utility to debut at the fair-weathered, traffic-snarled smog capital of the U.S., Los Angeles. Ford’s mid-cycle update is rather late on arrival, although SUV buyers haven’t truly minded. Even though the Explorer’s popularity has waned since its 1990 debut and he ...

The Pre-Owned 400 Club: 5 Ways to Get 400 Horsepower (or More) for $20,000

Oct 30 2014 9:22am CDT | Source: Car and Driver

We live in a world where 200 horsepower is economy-car fare, 300 horsepower is mildly interesting, and 400 horsepower is the minimum needed to command many enthusiasts’ attention. Big horsepower is affordable, too, if you know where to look. In the past decade, the world has seen its share of 400-hp cars, and they’ve now depreciated into the realm of attainability. At $20,000 or so, however, they’re not giveaways, and with as many as 100,000 miles on their odometers, the ...

Oct 30 2014 8:11am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Following its spin-off next year from parent Fiat-Chrysler, the global cachet of the Ferrari name will be key to master hurdles such as the costs of developing cars that meet the standards of its elite customers and ever demanding regulators. Ferrari’s self-imposed production cap at about 7,000 cars a year, aimed at preserving the exclusive ...
