The Jeep Cherokee is a well-known compact SUV with a long history. The vehicle is known for being powerful, durable, and offering reliability both on the regular roads and the tougher terrain. It is a great choice for someone that enjoys regular adventures off road. Yet they also want a vehicle that they can drive daily too.
It is ranked in the top 20 best vehicles of all time. When you think at the numerous vehicles that are out there, this is quite a remarkable accomplishment. The first generation had a very square body style. It featured rubber molding around the tire wells and rubber bumpers to help reduce the risk of paint chipping while using for off roading.
The first Jeep Cherokee models featured a V6 engine. Today, it is also offered with a V6 turbocharge option. It wasn’t until 1997 that this vehicle got a major change in the way it looked. The new front panel was more aerodynamic.
There were new headlights and taillights added too. Both government and police fleets frequently used the Jeep Cherokee as it was fast, it was rugged, and it could handle various types of terrain.
In 2001, the decision was made to replace the Jeep Cherokee with the Jeep Liberty. However, it was announced in 2013 that for the 2015 model there will be many changes to the body and interior of the vehicle. The Jeep Cherokee name will also be brought back due to the high demand for it by loyal customers.
