About Jeep Grand Cherokee

    One of America's original compact SUVs, the Jeep Grand Cherokee first made its way onto US roads for the 1984 model year. It stayed in production until 2001 and during its peak the Cherokee was one of the highest-rated vehicles in its class. At launch, the Jeep Grand Cherokee was equipped with a 2.5L inline four-cylinder engine which produced up to 105 horsepower or a 2.8L V6 that churned out 115 horsepower. Engines were typically mated to either a four-speed manual transmission or a three-speed automatic. Initial trim levels were the Pioneer and the Chief, with the latter offering a sportier list of options as well as Command-Trac (or Selec-Trac). As for the model's dimensions, the Jeep Grand Cherokee measured in with a shorter-than-usual 101.4 inch wheelbase and weighed just over 3,000 pounds, which was considerably smaller than its more traditionally-sized American competitors.

    The model was updated in 1987 to include an influx of power, as Jeep gave the Cherokee a 4.0L inline six-cylinder configuration that got credit for producing up to 177 horsepower. At the same time, the original inline four-cylinder engine was given a boost up to 121 horsepower. Versions of the Cherokee outfitted with the inline six-cylinder received a four-speed automatic transmission. Trim levels were also changed to the Laredo and Limited, with the Limited decked out with gold mesh wheels. The Cherokee parts were not given too many other updates for the next few years, although in 1991 the four-cylinder engine was increased to 130 horsepower while the inline six-cylinder got credit for 190 horsepower. First-generation Cherokees were assembled until 1996. In 1997, the new second-generation of the model was introduced.

    When the second generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee rolled off the line it bore a striking resemblance to the previous one. That's because Jeep did not alter the exterior very much aside from giving the vehicle revised tail lights and more smooth lines. The interior parts were improved considerably, however, with dual airbags and a new dash console. Under the hood was either a 2.5L inline four-cylinder engine or a 4.0L inline six-cylinder which delivered up to 190 horsepower. The four-cylinder configuration was mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or a three-speed automatic while the bolder inline six was geared to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic. Once again, Jeep's Command-Trac and Selec-Trac four-wheel drive systems were available. Trim levels were updated to the base SE, Sport, and Country, although towards the end of the Cherokee's time in production, the Country was dropped from the lineup. Instead, a new Classic trim was brought in and the Limited returned, with both slotting in above the Cherokee Sport.

    Known for its rugged looks, compact size, and off-road versatility, the Jeep Grand Cherokee stands proud as one of America's first do-it-all SUVs. Drivers from coast to coast have enjoyed hopping behind the wheel of this machine for trips into the city or to the camp grounds. With the right amount of performance and nifty handling to back it up, the Cherokee has endured because it can handle all types of terrain.
