First time I saw one was last summer in my local Walmart parking lot before the official Cherokee release. Second time was between last Thanksgiving and Christmas when I ran into a Roushe Racing Engineering (Yes, of NASCAR fame, Chrysler hires them to do consulting work.) crew at a local restaurant who were testing 3 different Cherokees mules one of them being a diesel. A favorite Chrysler on road test track is Auburn Hills I 75 to Fenton US 23 and back again or even further north if more miles are needed.
I don't understand why testing them here means they are destined to be sold here.

Judging by the interior, non modified left side, and location of the test vehicle, an assumption was made. Typically vehicles at the chelsea proving grounds are us bound. Never said destined to be sold here. Just said I wouldn't be surprised.

I was not quoting you, nor was I directing my statement to you. I realized you were just supposig , out loud.
