It’s been a long time coming, but the new Jeep Cherokee is almost upon us. Ever since it was teased with a new look that’s been divisive amongst fans, the new Cherokee has been building up popularity thanks to those wanting something new and others who are more impressed by what its capable of rather than a striking new look. Expectations are high and Jeep plans to make sure on delivering. That’s why it will be increasing production at the plant responsible for getting the Cherokee out to would-be buyers.
The Toledo plant in Ohio will be producing the 2014 Cherokee at full volume for a single shift. However, they want to be at full capacity by September. That’s over 500 models over the course of a nine-hour shift. In order to maintain that incredible pace, a second shift will be added. Training has already begun to get ready.
We’re expecting this vehicle to sell,” said Zachary Leroux, the plant’s manager. “I think that’s going to keep us busy for a long period of time.
Jeep is placing large bet on the new compact SUV set to replace the Jeep Liberty. With the hype going into it, I think it stands a chance at bringing in a new age of Jeep drivers.
