Default China Jeeps – The Cherokee, Renegade and Compass built in China?



Chrysler-Fiat is looking to expand its Jeep brand into the Chinese market and we've already seen what a JK will probably end up looking like there. However, there is a rumor that there will be more than just JKs imported to the People’s Republic. Will the Cherokee, Renegade, and Compass be built there as well, and why would they?

Let’s face it, the largest growing market for vehicles is China. With the population booming, the economy not totally in a tailspin, and people gaining more economic freedoms despite still being in a communist state, the new middle class in China wants cars. Chrysler-Fiat wants those people to own Jeeps, and a big way to increase that demand without raising costs is to build in China. There is a heavy import tax on products not made there, so building models locally will mean less pain in the consumer's pocketbook.
