Arguably the first mainstream SUV, the Jeep Cherokee was a runaway hit with buyers the moment it arrived in showrooms in 1984. Combining available four-wheel drive and room for a family in a compact, easy-to-maneuver package, the Cherokee offered a variety of trim levels — some with all the creature comforts of a passenger car. The Jeep Cherokee not only helped launch a class of vehicles, its arrival pretty much signaled the beginning of the end for the station wagon as the family vehicle of choice.
Production of first-generation models ended after a long run in 2001, and the current-generation Cherokee didn’t appear until the 2014 model year, after a decade-plus hiatus. Now, with similar dimensions wrapped in a more modern package, the formula hasn’t changed much.

Towing vehicles can tow a minimum of 2,000 pounds (see specifications for maximum). May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
