Jefferson hits six million

by David Zatz on

The relatively new Jefferson North assembly plant in Detroit logged its six millionth vehicle yesterday, a 75th anniversary Jeep Grand Cherokee.


Jefferson North started production in 1992, and made Jeep Grand Cherokees ever since, along with Jeep Commanders and Dodge Durangos. Designed from the start as a flex plant, it has 2.7 million square feet of space, after a 1999 expansion. The five millionth vehicle made there was a 2014 Grand Cherokee (see it being made).

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
