And a little vindication for Mitt Romney, they will build Cherokees in China. Why not build all Cherokees in the U.S. and make others pay for it for a change. They have done that with the JK to great profit.
Very possible however dealers still cannot order them. Chrysler did the same thing for the Dart launch with only 1.4L 6 Speeds in red available and the 14 Grand Cherokee's with all red Limited's. I'm inclined to believe Allpar's story.
Chrysler is building Cherokee's in China, but for the Chinese market (source
). They aren't being exported into the US. Slightly different than what Mitt was inferring.
