Chrysler delay's 2014 Jeep Cherokee media preview

Chrysler has told The Detroit Free Press that it’s delaying the media’s preview of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee because of electronic issues controlling the engine and nine-speed transmission.

The automaker said in a statement that during the final weeks of testing, the company has discovered an opportunity to further improve the power train calibration of the Cherokee.

Though Chrysler is delaying the media preview, the company added that they will still plan on shipping the 2014 Cherokees to dealers by September.

According to an article on AOL Autos, Chrysler is having trouble keeping up with the demand of Jeep Grand Cherokees and Wranglers.

The story says the demand for Wrangler comes from a few things: More people shopping for cars, easier credit terms and design upgrades. Because of their popularity, finding a good deal on a Wrangler is currently next to impossible.

And with tax season here, dealers know people are wanting to shop for vehicles.

As for the Grand Cherokee, Chrysler officials said in the story that 25-30 percent are selling for more than $40,000, with some selling for more than the MSRP.
