The Cherokee was the first unibody Jeep. Engines ranged from an I4 to a V6, with many in between. A diesel I4 was available in some markets.
The only major update on this vehicle came in 1997, when interior and exterior upgrades and redesigns were made. This came after Jeep thought it had discontinued the model in favor of the Grand Cherokee. It turned out the Cherokee was too popular and sales were too good to let it go and replace it with a bigger vehicle for a different market. The Cherokee was only discontinued in 2001 after Jeep had found a suitable replacement in the Liberty and now several other models.
There were many different trim levels on this SUV. They included the SE, Sport, Country,
Classic, Limited, and Laredo.
These are still very popular vehicles on the used market. You can find them just about anywhere, but you'll find better deals on places like eBay than in your local newspaper.
