A whopping nine units are in transition to dealers.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee made a big splash after it was announced last spring. Since then 19,000 have been built but remain unmoved from Chrysler's Toledo based plant. The problem has to do with the Cherokee's powertrain failing to calibrate with software controls to a level of quality standards allowing Chrysler to validate the vehicles. Despite dealers getting antsy at the lack of inventory, executives believe once vehicles are validated they can be shipped in quantity and prefer this to owners returning Cherokees to their dealers.
