Jeep Cherokee History

The Jeep Cherokee was introduced to the United States in 1974 as a stylish option for young families. The original sales brochures coined the term “sports utility vehicle,” originating the culturally ubiquitous abbreviation SUV. 

The Cherokee started its life as a full size SUV, later transforming into a compact SUV in the 1980’s. This change of status resulted in a lighter weight car, with more nimble handling, and better gas mileage. This first change to a vehicle platform with a unibody frame was the beginning of what would become the Crossover Cherokee we all know and love today. With it’s off road capabilities, roomy interior, and the comforts of a luxury car, the Cherokee Crossover is a great bet for the weekend warrior with a family.

The Jeep Cherokee has been a long time inspiration for all SUVs and plenty of other vehicles. Automobile magazine says “Today’s ubiquitous tall 4x4 station wagons all owe their existence to the Cherokee and its resounding commercial success. Without the Cherokee, there would have been no Toyota RAV-4 or Honda CR-V.

If you love offroading, the Cherokee is small enough to fit on trails, and has enough wheel articulation to really play. Thanks to its unibody construction, it is super lightweight for an SUV, meaning way more wheeling possibilities. It’s small, but still big enough to fit 4 people and gear.

These cars are so versatile, even the US government wanted a slice. In the mid 90’s, Jeep produced the XJ Cherokee SE exclusively for the US police and eventually even made a special one for the US postal service.

What makes the Cherokee unique? It’s a crossover.

These boxy vehicles have been a cult classic since the 80s. People love the look and the practicality too. The Cherokee is great because it can do the suburban things, like lug around kids and pets, do the errands, and fit the bigger stuff. But, it can also rough it in the back country pretty solidly. But what makes the Jeep Cherokee really unique?

The Cherokee is called a crossover because it crosses over between a car and an SUV. Of course, visually and practically speaking, it’s an SUV. However, the way it is built is rather unique among SUVs. The Cherokee uses a unibody construction, unlike most off-roading vehicles and SUVs which use a body-on-frame construction.

The newest Cherokee has a car-based, sedan platform and a car engine. It’s available in front wheel drive and all wheel drive configurations. Even though it has so much “car” in it, reviewers and drivers alike swear that the Cherokee crossover handles like a full-on SUV. It’s great off road, but still comfortable enough for long distances.

But let’s get into the details. What differentiates the 2019 Jeep Cherokee from previous models?

If, on the other hand, you love the Jeep Cherokee, but you’re looking for more of a luxury SUV, the Jeep Grand Cherokee might be just what you’re looking for. It is a more deluxe version of the Cherokee but with all the same perks:

The Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Grand Cherokee—the midsize sibling to the Cherokee—is a slightly larger option, and is also the best selling Jeep vehicle of all time. The Grand Cherokee was introduced in 1993 as a contender in the luxury SUV category, and has been a consistent favorite since inception.

The Grand Cherokee also packs a substantial punch, as stated by Kelley Blue Book:

“The 2018 Grand Cherokee is Jeep's flagship SUV, a 2-row/5-passenger hauler with a model lineup spanning from rather basic to absolutely bonkers. For 2018, the latter end of that spectrum just pushed beyond all rationality with the new Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, which packs the 707-horsepower supercharged V8 from its Dodge Hellcat cousins. As the Grand Cherokee nameplate celebrates its 25th anniversary, it continues to improve on its formula for a rugged, powerful yet civilized midsize SUV.”
