Fiat and Chrysler announced plans Saturday to build three new Jeep models in China for that market, the biggest for the vehicles outside the United States, as they attempt to boost sales in a country where they lag behind their competitors.
The automakers said they will expand their joint venture with Chinas Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. Ltd., and increase the portfolio of Jeeps, which are currently imported to China.
Production is expected to start in late 2015 in Guangzhou, the companies said in a statement, adding that they are considering a Jeep model uniquely designed for China.

America currently runs a 440 billion to 122 billion trade deficit with China.
That is a MASSIVE trade deficit.
Why are we exporting yet more manufacturing to China?
Well, I’m certainly not buying them.
This simply cannot be!
The TV told me that Romney was lying when he said that Jeep would build a plant in China to build Jeeps.
My TV wouldn’t lie to me, would it??
Wait...weren’t we told that they would make what they make best, and we would make what we make best?
Even Bob Dylan told me that earnest Black people in Detroit will build the cars.
Could it be...it’s all a lie?
Unions epa i could go on
We all know they took the bailout money to build that factory in China.
But hey, they probably borrowed the money from China, so fair’s fair, right?
You probably won’t get a chance. the jeeps built in China will be built for the asian market, not here. But stick to your guns, nonetheless.
This must be bogus. Why, Politico called this story, "The Lie of the Year" so it can't be true, can it? I mean, if you can't trust Politico who can you trust?
I’ll keep my decrepit old oil bleeding Willys CJ5 and the CJ7 project one that I hope to get running one day when some of this medical stuff coming up and going on.
Got some weird stuff going on with a knee all week. Quacks X-rayed and drew blood and didn’t see anything objectionable. All week knee has been periodically stiff and painful. The brace and crutch helped as well as the horse pill anti-inflammatory stuff for a while but I am back to where I was a week ago.
Didn’t the Obama campaign the Obamamedia all call Romney a liar for saying that?
“This must be bogus.”
It ain’’t me! Leave me outa this!
If you can’t pivot on your knee then it’s probably the ACL getting weak/small tear.
Jeep Wranglers are perhaps the hottest selling vehicle today. Even used ones go for near new model prices. This would kill off the Jeep as it has many other products.
That is one suspect I will keep in mind when I go to the quack (actually a good doctor) on Monday. I am otherwise in pretty good shape. I’d like to be able to ride around in my 65 Jeep.
It makes more sense to produce Jeeps for the Chinese in China rather than build them here and ship them there.
Now, if it turns out (doubtful) that they're building Jeeps in China for American consumption, you should really turn your ire on the American government rather than the people who are trying to make a profit.
Don’t confuse them with the facts.

Well with all due respect,
Last year America sold something like 122 billion dollars worth of goods to China.
Last year China sold something like 440 billion dollars worth of goods to America.
We are completely selling out our own manufacturing.
Have you tried turmeric for your knee? It's a "natural" anti-inflamitory. Suggested by a Chinese doc, who said, "There is no arthritis in India."
With all due respect, if Jeep made cars in Detroit and then shipped them to China, they would be too expensive to sell. They would be undersold as they are now, by other manufacturers making cars in China.
What would you do differently?
If you ran Jeep, would you refuse to set up plants in China and lose sales to others?

To build in China Jeeps for the Chinese market.
I’ll look into that, thanks.
A 67? An F-Head 134 or one of those Dauntless V6s? Either is good in my book.
Love to see photos if you ever roll it out. Here is my old bucket in the snow sometime back.
Well, I’m not buying Chrysler products as a result of this.
You are in the neighborhood I bet. I finally had an MRI and the quacks see some cartilage damage. I see a specialist in early May. Got to love that new 0-care with the delays.
I initially went to the local Doc In A Box that has done very well what times I went. Getting appointment with my regular quackette is almost impossible. Stays booked.
