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.

Currently, the Jeep Cherokee is built at the Parkway Assembly Plant, which will continue building Wrangler models.
