Fiat Chrysler is delaying the production of the all-new Jeep Grand Wagoneer and Grand Cherokee by three months. Their market launch will take place in 2021.
Needless to say, why it is happening. The car industry is heavy influenced by the coronavirus outbreak. According to FCA’s spokesman, the company awaits for “some period of delay to our programs”.
The Jeep Wagoneer SUV was marketed from 1963 to 1993 model years. The new three-row 2021 Grand Wagoneer is a revival of the model, which is coming to compete with such strong rivals as the Ford Expedition or the Chevrolet Tahoe.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the most outdated vehicle in the brand’s model range. Its current fourth generation has been on sale since 2010. So, the generational change is long overdue.
FCA reported it would progressively restart production at facilities in the Unites States and Canada on May 4 and May 18.
