About Jeep Cherokee
The Jeep Cherokee was originally marketed as a variant of the Wagoneer. It has evolved from a full-size SUV to one of the current generation's first compact SUVs and crossovers. The company is named after the Jeep Cherokee, a Native American tribe, and has been in use since 1974. It was a sporty version of Jeep's two-door wagon, which surpassed the capabilities of the CJ-5 SUV. The four-door model was not offered until 1977. The Wagoneer was produced as the Grand Wagoneer for another eight years. But in 1984, the Jeep Cherokee name was moved to a new platform. It did not use a traditional body but lightweight one-piece construction.
The model was so popular that the successor to the second generation was sold as a stand-alone car. It was called the Grand Cherokee. Then the company launched Jeep's flagship model series. It was priced somewhere between the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. It remained Jeep's smallest four-door SUV until the introduction of the Compass and Patriot in 2007. It is built in one piece. It is assembled at the Toledo North assembly plant in the United States and other countries, including Egypt and Venezuela. The smaller Patriot and Compass models are being offered to meet the needs of fuel-conscious customers. The four-cylinder engine has been eliminated from the model lineup. The only engine offered in 2008 is a V6 with an iron block and aluminum cylinder head. Jeep discontinued the CRD-powered Jeep Cherokee in the U.S. market because it did not meet the stricter 2007 diesel emissions standards.

When the fifth-generation Jeep Cherokee returned to the U.S. market, it was rebranded as a crossover. And it became a mid-size car to make way for the Jeep Renegade. It was priced lower than Compass. The company withdrew the CRD engine from the Jeep Cherokee in the U.S. market because it did not meet the stricter 2007 diesel emissions standards. Options were a six-speed manual transmission and a four-speed automatic transmission. Electronic stability control with rollover control, traction control, and anti-lock brakes with brake assist was standard. Side airbags are a new common feature. Options include rain-sensing windshield wipers, Sirius satellite radio, Bluetooth, navigation system, and MyGig entertainment system with 30 GB hard drive.
Trailhawk version adds dark alloy wheels, touchscreen radio, roadside assistance, and app support. It is only available in 4x4 format. This model has a much greater off-road capability. The Trailhawk is equipped with tow hooks for towing stationary vehicles and a mechanical storage box in the rear. Trailhawk L and Trailhawk Elite models were available in 2017. And they added additional features to the base Trailhawk model. The Altitude edition was based on the mid-range Latitude model. The company's options included 18-inch gloss black wheels, black window trim, and an all-black leather interior. In late summer 2013, Jeep temporarily halted production of the new Cherokee due to a software problem with the transmission. Several thousand Cherokee had already been produced. They remained at the factory until the problem was resolved. In October 2013, a software fix was issued for the Cherokee. And the vehicle arrived at U.S. dealerships. By November, sales in the U.S. and Canada were well underway, and pre-orders had a minimum four-week supply.
