Find Used Jeep Cherokees in Utah

The Cherokee was first introduced in 1984 and helped to begin Americans love of SUVs and the expansion of style and models in this category. After it was rolled out, the popularity of the Cherokee soared, so there are plenty of used ones available. Overall this is a tough, inexpensive, vehicle that is capable off road. For the 2001 model year, the Cherokee line up has been simplified, eliminating the four-cylinder and a couple of trim levels. Two-door and four-door bodies were made in 2001, with either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. Two-doors come in only one trim level, which is called Sport. Four-doors used Cherokees may be found in the Sport trim, or the extra loaded Limited trim. That engine is strong throughout the speed range, and delivers fuel economy typical of a midsize SUV. This SUV has a fuel economy range of 23 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg in the City. The Sport model has the basic amenities, and nothing more. It features power steering, power brakes, full carpeting, four-speaker AM/FM/cassette stereo, a clock and tachometer, variable intermittent wipers and a five-speed manual transmission. The Limited trim will be found with an added luggage rack, power mirrors, upgraded seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear wiper, four-speed automatic transmission and an upgrade from 15-inch steel to 16-inch aluminum wheels, making it a comfortable ride for an SUV of its day. The used Cherokee has the distinction of the first unit-body sport-utility vehicle (as opposed to the traditional body-on-frame style). This technology has advantages such as a higher rigidity and much lower weight. This has given the 2001 version spectacular performance and good handling. For used car buyers, it is important to understand the Cherokees tight interior and stiff freeway ride. Not the most comfortable for long trips. It does, though, have a combination of good ground clearance, short wheelbase and a favorable power-to-weight ratio. The Cherokee has proven itself off the road. The Selec-Trac four-wheel drive system, which can be used full-time, can be handy in bad weather. It is also best to get a used Cherokee that has its spare tire mounted on the outside. Mounting the spare tire inside takes up cargo room, but there's still decent space with the rear seat in use. The optional four-speed automatic gives a smooth operation, and there's enough torque in the venerable inline six-cylinder engine to generate excellent stoplight getaway, automatic or not. The two wheel drive 2001 Cherokee retails (in average condition) for $3,100 to $5,700. The four wheel drive goes for $3,900 to $6,600. All in all Chrysler Corporation has somehow been successful to keep the Cherokee in production for so long. Most models that started in 1984 would have been long gone by the 2000s, where the competition has grown immensely. Good balance and clean dimensions make the Cherokee maneuverable in most situations. The firm base suspension provides a solid ride that absorbs all but the worst bumps, without jarring.
