Jeep Cherokee | 1974–2001
Original Base Price: $4,161
Jeep introduced the Cherokee in 1974 as a 2-door version of the Wagoneer, and it remained that way until the 4-door variant debuted in 1977. The Cherokee remained on this platform until it was completely redone in 1984. Considerably shorter and narrower than the big Wagoneer, the new Cherokee was built on a unibody platform rather than the traditional chassis and frame. Two different 4-wheel-drive systems were available — Command-Trac part-time and Selec-Trac full-time 4-wheel drive. Cherokee was originally offered with either a 2.5-liter four cylinder or a 2.8-liter V6 engine until the highly-regarded 4.0-liter inline 6-cylinder arrived for 1987. The 2-door version of the Cherokee was discontinued in 1988, and in 2002 Jeep introduced the Liberty to replace the Cherokee.
