Chrysler's Jefferson North Assembly Plant Commemorates 5 Millionth Vehicle Built, Jeep Grand Cherokee

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Will Be Donated to USO

Edward A. SanchezAug 13, 2013
Detroit, Michigan may have the nickname Motown and the reputation for being the heart of the American auto industry, but very few vehicle assembly plants are actually situated within Detroit city limits. One of them, as we profiled last month, is Chrysler's Jefferson North assembly plant, best known for building the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Groundbreaking on the plant started in May 1989, and the first vehicle came off the line on January 14, 1992, a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Today, the plant commemorates the five millionth vehicle built at the plant, a silver 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6.
As a symbol of the Jeep brand's ongoing support for the United Services Organization, the vehicle will be donated to the USO to help aid its mission of supporting returning troops and their families. The vehicle will receive a commemorative plaque, and will be signed by Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne.
Fifty plant employees with more than 30 years of service were present at the ceremony, as well as members of the plant's Veterans Committee. In addition to the Grand Cherokee, the Jefferson North plant also currently builds the Dodge Durango three-row SUV.
