...but rest assured that the vehicles that fell off the line are pulled and rebuilt.

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

how can you guys build more then Marlon? How can they add the Wagoneer to JNAP as well? Only way I know is to say bye bye to the Durango or add onto the facility.

I say, let someone else deal with the Durgango, JNAP is where the GC and Wagoneer belong... On a Cherokee note, I'm glad it's doing well in sales. It may be the ugliest thing Jeep has ever pumped out (in my personal opinion) but I am glad to see it is doing well.

We seriously, absolutely, CANNOT build 1 more Grand Cherokee than we build right now.

Period.

Hire more people? Useless. The LineŽ can't be run any faster than it is already. It just can't. We're actually building too fast as it is right now... stuff is starting to break on a regular basis. Robots, conveyors, PEOPLE... vehicles FALLING off the line in the paint shop... it's bad here.
Could they run 3 full shifts ... and slow things down?

There won't be any time to do maintenance which will make things worse, and in addition, will result in LESS production due to contract requirements.

Trust me, JNAP is like a maxed out, over the limit credit card.

At this point?

LOL!

BUILD ANOTHER PLANT!

...which is not cost effective by any means, but I hear there's a LOT of vacant land in Detroit, which will probably be so desperate for tax dollars that they'll probably give it away to Chrysler for free. Oh wait, I think they did that the last time too.

TNAP is nowhere near full capacity. (Cherokee)

TSAP however, is. (Wrangler)

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

I have a feeling TNap will be soon


I also have a feeling the Durango will be done after this cycle

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

I *still* doubt that.
It's profitable.

Not as profitable as the Grand Cherokee, but it does make money.

I also feel that TNAP will reach full capacity soon.

Regarding the capacity issue at JNAP... well... we do still have outstanding orders (which is why it takes so long for people to get ordered vehicles) but our inventory numbers are right at around 60 days so we're getting there...

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

Too bad they shut down the DE plant, among others, that could have helped. But bankruptcy does those things to a company. So investment in capacity after you shed it, is almost impossible.

Re: Can Jeep sell 1 million vehicles this year????

I would love for Jeep to keep selling the way they are. It would not bother me the slighest if all I see on my commute is nothing but Jeeps. Don't care if it's a FWD Compass, JGC Summit, Some maxed out Wrangler....Don't care. I just wanna see Jeeps. Jeeps for everybody I also want to see JNAP, TNAP, and TSAP so damn busy and successful, that no change jingling, heel rock'n, stiff'n tall collar, shiny shoes wear'n, pencil necked, sits-behind-a-big-shiny-desk-at-the-corner-office bean counter ever even THINKS about having Jeeps made anywhere else. Really, I'd wish they had every Jeep in the product line all made in Detroit. Suite me to a capital T
