DaimlerChrysler AG will discontinue Jeep Cherokee production by the middle of 2001 and is investing an additional $35 million at its new Toledo North Assembly Plant (TNAP) for greater flexibility. The company is installing new equipment that will allow it to ramp up production of the all-new Jeep Liberty (see p.5) on a two-shift operation. Currently, the Jeep Cherokee is built at the Parkway Assembly Plant, which will continue building Wrangler models.
