Jeep Cherokee History

 


The words Jeep Cherokee call to mind a sporty and capable vehicle, just as comfortable off the road as on it, long-associated with tradition, value, and the American way. Of course, this reputation didn't just spring up out of the ground. Jeep has been building it, frame by frame, engine by engine, model by model, since 1984, when the Jeep Cherokee first appeared in a form recognizable to customers today.

Jeep has featured a vehicle named the Cherokee since 1974, but the original Cherokee was more akin to the more pedestrian Wagoneer than the sporty, aggressive SUV we know today. In 1984, however, Jeep left the Wagoneer-based model in the dust, giving the Jeep Cherokee nameplate to a wholly different vehicle-a lighter, smaller, more streamlined utility vehicle we now recognize as the first "real" Cherokee model.

While Jeep made improvements and adjustments to the original Cherokee SUV model every year from 1984 on, the vehicle was such a smash hit that it took thirteen years before Jeep even needed to refresh the Cherokee for a new generation of customers. The Cherokee received major updates to both the interior and exterior, making the car more aerodynamic on the outside and more comfortable and convenient on the inside.

 

The Cherokee faded out of production in 2001, replaced by the Jeep Liberty on North American roads. However, as we all know, nothing really beats the original. For the previous model year, brought their mainstay out of retirement-to thunderous applause from Americans and Jeep fans all over the world. The 2016 Jeep Cherokee retains its signature Jeep styling but updates its off-road capability for a whole new generation of adventurers.
