Jeep Finally Begins to Ship 2014 Cherokee to Dealers

After more delays than Chrysler would care to admit, the company has started to call in car haulers to transport the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee SUV from the firm’s Toledo, Ohio, assembly complex to dealers across the United States, according to Autonews. Unnamed sources from within the company said that the first examples should arrive over the next 10 days.

The publication said that during the two months that Chrysler started production of the cars, and while its engineers were working on the problems that popped up, it built around 23,000 Cherokees, which is double the number mentioned in another recent report.

Nevertheless, customers have been flocking Jeep stores asking for the new Cherokee, according to dealers like Josh Towbin, co-owner of Las Vegas-based Towbin Automotive, who said: “Demand has been good. We’ve been asked every single day when it’s going to arrive, and we’re going to take every one we can get.”

From what we understand (since Chrysler hasn’t really been open about it), the biggest problem that caused the delay in the 2014 Cherokee’s launch was an issue with the new nine-speed automatic transmission’s software.

Update: Chrysler officially confirmed the news with a short statement saying, “2014 Jeep Cherokees began arriving at dealerships today”.
