Jeep Cherokees finally being sent to dealers

– Chrysler began shipping the new Jeep Cherokee on Tuesday, giving dealers a long-awaited entry in the fast-growing compact crossover SUV market.

Distribution of the Cherokees had been delayed while Chrysler engineers tinkered with the new nine-speed automatic transmissions to make them shift more smoothly.

Company spokesmen confirmed that trucks hauling Cherokees began leaving a Toledo factory Tuesday morning, heading for Jeep dealers across the nation.
