hrysler has been eyeing the Chinese car market for a while now, and they plan to eventually move all Jeep production of cars destined to be sold in the area, to China. Group officials are now in talks with their Chinese partners, from the Gunangzhou Automobile Group Co. to restart Jeep production in the country, after it had been stopped in 2009, after Fiats takeover of Chrysler.
According to Mike Manley, COO of Fiat and Chrysler in Asia, said that they have already gone through very detailed conversations with Guangzhou Automobile officials, and that "the volume opportunity for us is very significant [. . .] We're reviewing the opportunities within existing capacity (and) localizing the entire Jeep portfolio or some of the Jeep portfolio."

The commie 0bama's "recovery" is aimed at Chine, not the US, but the unions still support him.
Wow! Americans have gotten a heck of a deal from Barry.
I bet if we hired thousands of new math teachers, and taxed the rich a bit more, we’d have these jobs coming back to America...in a flash... (sarc)
The All-American Jeep.
Owned by Italy.
Made in China.
So that’s what it’s come to.
This is a warning phrase that ALL Jeeps could be made there.
Wait till the Free Republic Free Traitor squad chimes in and tell us how it is just a freedom thing no big deal fighting the govt regs and all.
This is why my next SUV is a Ford, I am former Jeep and current Dodge owner (pre-0bama owned).
This morning the vintage media was calling this a false rumor & that Romney’s mention of it was another “gaff.”
is that what we bailed them out for?
No wonder Obamugabe said, “....here in China...”, the other day. He already knew......
The Chicoms will just steal the Jeep technology, rebrand it The Yeep and Fiat/Chrysler will get stiffed - SOP for these crooks.
Exactly right. I have come to believe that the ChiComs long-term plan (and they think this way) is to control industrial production for the US and Europe. Having that gives them control of the world economy.
Chicoms has plenty of Audi and BMW technology to steal anything from Jeep. I think it is good for Jeep to build in China as it is mostly aimed to feed Chinese domestic demand. China is about to become a world largest car market surpassing US by large.
The reality is Jeep builds inferior products. So does Chrysler and Dodge. Charisma, spirit is all has left from it but it really can’t compete on international market, especially if you are to include shipping cost. China is a huge market so it eats everything. It is good to make Chinese buy more Jeep charisma making it their domestic product. What export? Russia buys a few thousand annually from US, Europe buys a few hundred. Japan?? Please....
Guess I’ll add them to the list of cars I will never own then. Hope selling to commies keeps them afloat.
