Chrysler will delay the launch of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee because of concerns with the nine-speed automatic transmission, which may apparently have some problems.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee will hit the production line later than expected. The decision has been taken because of some problems with the nine-speed automatic transmission, signed by ZF, which may have some problems. The production delay has been already announced by Chrysler but, until now, no one outside the company knew exactly why this decision was taken, because the North American based automaker kept mentioning “issues” in its press releases.
The brand new 2014 Jeep Cherokee has been officially presented to the public just earlier this year. The model is coming with a new design, wearing plastic body cladding and standing out from a crowd thanks to its new front grille, slender headlights, chrome trim and more. The new Jeep Grand Cherokee will replace the old Liberty and it will be assembled in the Toledo North plant. The model in question should have went on sale in the third quarter of this year. A production start date isn’t known for the moment.
