The Jeep Cherokee, produced from 1997 to 2001, represented a transition in the model’s design philosophy, moving away from the boxy appearance of its predecessor towards a more rounded and aerodynamic profile. It was available in two- and four-door body styles, offering versatility for different customer preferences. The interior saw improvements in terms of comfort and convenience, with better materials and ergonomics. In addition to the standard rear-wheel-drive models, the Cherokee continued to offer four-wheel-drive variants, maintaining its reputation for off-road capability. Under the hood, the Cherokee featured a range of engines to cater to various needs, from efficient daily driving to more robust towing and off-road performance. Suspension and chassis enhancements contributed to improved on-road handling and ride quality. While maintaining its rugged off-road capabilities, this generation of the Jeep Cherokee also aimed to provide a more comfortable and refined on-road driving experience, catering to a wider audience.
