Jeep Eyeing Chinese Cherokee Production
April 23rd, 2013 10:53 AM Share
The 2014 Cherokee could be the first Jeep produced in China in nearly 6 years. Jeep CEO Mike Manley said that the Cherokee was an “obvious choice” for local production, as Jeep looks to expand its customer base in China.
Manley noted that the Cherokee could double Jeep’s current 46,000 unit sales. Local production would allow Jeep to avoid import tariffs on the new model, which according to Jeep, has proved overwhelmingly popular in consumer clinics. Currently, the Compass accounts for just over 70 percent of Jeep sales in the country.

I'm a big Jeep fan from way back, but I just can't get past the front end of the new Cherokee. If they only produced that style in China, and something better/different here, I'd be OK with that.
No one in America will get one of these. They are only for Chinese consumption.
If if everything pans out as proposed, I plan on getting one because it's exactly the kind of vehicle I need
See, Romney was right!!!!!!!!!!! Obama has destroyed Toledo, just like he took all my guns away under sharia law!!!!
