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

Jeep has an interesting challenge but also a great opportunity. It has probably the best product line ever, a captive market, competitors like GM have their own problems, and there is a very clear support from its parent company.

I think capacity is only a short term problem. With the Renegade to be produced in Italy and a new Cherokee plant in China, things should get better in a year or two. With Jeep viewed as one of FCA premium brands, I have to believe that a new plant will be added or repurposed in US or Canada as well. Short term it is frustrating for buyers as I can attest, waiting for my Cherokee.

The bigger challenge Imo will be positioning and brand image. Jeep has this in spades but it is very different across the globe. Hence a Jeep that sells for 25 k in the US, to the offroad enthusiasts, commands 50 k in Europe and sells to a very different market segment. At some point, this may not be sustainable. I have heard suggestions that Jeep should follow Land Rover and split Into an offroad division and a luxury offroad division I.e. Land Rover/Range Rover but am unsure if that would solve the issue.

And, to answer the original question, I do think that they will come very close to 1 M sales this year.

Nope. Not at all. Co-Worker's mom is regularly laid off from the Ford Focus plant.
Ford in Flat Rock recently had a layoff due to inventory adjustments for the Ford Fusion.
Not too sure about GM... hate GM.

Definitely looks like Jeep has a good thing going right now! Does anyone in the Toledo plant know how training of the new production workers is going?

I don't work there, but I can "see" that the line is running, so training has gone quite well.

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

Can they be trained to drop some CRDs into that engine well Marlon and send them pronto to Aust? LOL

Just kidding. Patience is not a virtue of mine. Just have to wait........

I'm referring to Milous' post (#273) in the KL thread. Zero, Zip, Zilch CRDs at the moment.

They'd need some engines shipped to TNAP first.
