American Cars Under $25,000

Jeep Cherokee
Price: Starting at $23,395
In the world of midsize car-based crossovers, most of which were never meant for any meaningful off-roading, it’s nice to know there is one that can handle the tough stuff if called upon to do so, while still offering a fuel-efficient, comfortable ride on pavement. The original Cherokee was discontinued after the 2001 model year, but it had such a stellar reputation that the company wisely brought the name back, albeit on a vehicle that looks nothing like the original. In fact the styling of the new Cherokee has been quite polarizing. But with three available 4WD systems, almost 9 inches of ground clearance and an array of safety and convenience features, the new Cherokee is certainly deserving of the legendary name.
