Those Jeeps are for Asian consumption and they will not be imported to the US.
How many times do you need to be told?
?DETROIT (AP) -- Fiat, Chrysler and a Chinese automaker announced Tuesday that they have signed an agreement to expand vehicle manufacturing in China and produce the Jeep for sale in that market.
The companies said the deal was signed at Chrysler Group's headquarters in the Detroit suburb of Auburn Hills. It was announced as Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. discussed its plans during press days at the North American International Auto Show.
A joint venture between GAC Group, Fiat Group Automobiles SpA and Chrysler Group International currently builds the Fiat Viaggio and distributes models such as the Fiat 500, Freemont and Bravo in China. Production of more Fiat models is planned.
"The expansion of the agreement with our GAC partners will allow us to unleash the potential of both our Fiat and Chrysler Group brands in China," Jeep President and CEO Mike Manley, who also is chief operating officer for Fiat's Asia Pacific region, said in a statement.
The companies say the venture's next step will be to build Jeeps in China for the Chinese market. Jeep already sells several models in China, including the Grand Cherokee, Wrangler and Compass, but they are imported. Jeep has said volume would be incremental to start.

It has been common since at least the 1960s for US companies to have foreign sales, but to actually make aircraft, trucks and cars in the target country, in some cases licensing the design, in others just allowing the labor and materials to come from the target country. In the 20s and 30s they did similar things with steam locomotives, particularly in Russia and Japan.
