The Detroit News said more details would emerge later this month when FCA reveals its updated five-year product strategy to investors. But so far, nothing has changed since we first heard an unofficial yes in September, including that it will be built alongside the next-gen Wrangler in Toledo, Ohio.

Since Jeep sells every last Wrangler the Toledo plant builds, FCA may need to move Cherokee production—it’s built on a second Toledo line—to another facility to prevent any inventory shortfalls as retooling commences.
