Building new Cherokee?

Jeep has been unusually silent on whether they have started building the new Cherokee, or are they still adjusting the shifting. Does anyone know?

I am still waiting for an email with my VIN number for a Trailhawk that I ordered Aug. 9. I cannot track on VOTS (Vehicle Order Tracking System) until I receive the last 8 characters of the VIN.

Re: Building new Cherokee?

Everything I've heard is that production has started. Of our two Latitudes that were approved as our starting orders, one has been assigned a serial number and a tentative ship date. I do not know if Trailhawks or Limiteds are being built yet - we ordered those as well but the factory cancelled those orders. All dealers are allocated only two Cherokees to start, as far as I know. For us, they picked our Latitude orders to fill.

Production started last month. I believe shipping has started (or will start this week).

Re: Building new Cherokee?

Jeep had a media announcement when customer production started at the end of June.
The delay due to re-programming transmissions did not stop the build just the delivery timeline was delayed until September.
It seems plausible that they will be in route this coming week.
I heard Jeep is planning a large media blitz... probably take advantage of football season.

Re: Building new Cherokee?

You would think they could ship the V6's though right? Doesn't the transmission issue only apply to the Tigershark? And it's 8-9th gear shift on that combo?

Re: Building new Cherokee?

There are Cherokees that have been built and are in storage since July.... Soon to be released. The ones I have seen are V6, but I know there are some Tigersharks there too now.
