Jeep delays 2014 Cherokee production launch image

The North American based automaker Chrysler has recently announced the production launch delay of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, because of a “wide range of issues”.

According to the car manufacturer, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee’s production launch will be delayed. The announcement has been made by the Chrysler senior vice president of engineering, Mark Chernoby, in an interview to Detroit Free Press.

“We did start with an initial scheduled plan of the third week in May, and now we are into mid-June. That is just due to a wide range of issues”, as the company’s official said.

The new Cherokee is the most important Jeep model this year. The vehicle is replacing the old Liberty and it will be assembled in the Toledo North plant. As a quick reminder, the brand new Jeep Cherokee, which is wearing the 2014 model year in its name, has been officially unveiled a few months ago. The model has a controversial design, with some plastic body cladding, a unique design for the hood, slender headlights, a new front grille, some chrome trim and more. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee should have gone on sale in the third quarter of 2013.
