The Jeep Cherokee created the sport/utility market and went strong over the years. It was designed to appeal to buyers who want the Jeep heritage but who prefer it to come in a more affordable package. Key competitors for the Jeep Cherokee include the Ford Explorer, the Chevrolet Blazer/GMC Jimmy twins and the Toyota 4Runner. 

Year-to-year changesEdit

1991Edit

The 1991 Cherokee was available in four trim levels, a base 2-door and base, Briarwood and Limited 4-door SUVs.

1994Edit

The Cherokee was repositioned toward the entry-level end of the compact sport/utility market, since the newer Grand Cherokee had the upper end of that marketplace pretty well covered.

The Cherokee is available in three trim levels, SE, Sport and Country, in 2-door and 4-door versions. Given Jeep's off-road heritage, it should come as no surprise that two 4-wheel-drive options are offered: a part-time as well as a full-time 4-wheel-drive system. Both systems feature shift-on-the-fly operation and a 2-speed transfer case that incorporates a floor-mounted shift lever. The base engine remains the 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder. The optional engine is the powerful 4.0-liter inline 6-cylinder. The base transmission is a 5-speed manual. A 3-speed automatic is optional in SE models and, later in the year, it will also be available with the base-level engine. A 4-speed automatic overdrive is the optional transmission in all other models.

1995Edit

For 1995, the legendary Cherokee is essentially a carryover model. The big news is that the Cherokee gets a driver's airbag as standard-equipment throughout the line. Other standard equipment enhancements include a reclining front seat and dual horns.

The 2-door Country was also dropped from the lineup in early 1995.


1997Edit

Redesigned for 1997, the new Jeep Cherokee went on sale in February 1997 as a late model.
