It was only a matter of time.
We recently reported that a stockpile of more than 19,000 Jeep Cherokees were being halted in Chrysler's Toledo, Ohio, manufacturing complex. The main reason? A software calibration failure of the new nine-speed automatic transmission. Mercifully, Jeep has now begun ordering car haulers to carry out 23,000 deliveries to dealers nationwide over the next 10 days. Production originally began late June and 2014 Cherokees were expected to arrive at dealerships in September. They will be equipped with a 2.4-liter inline-four or an all new 3.2-liter Pentastar V6.
