Review of the 2001 Jeep Cherokee

  • Long overdue for an overhaul, the Cherokee hangs on for one more year before next year's replacement, the Liberty, debuts.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful engine, affordable, extremely capable off-road.

  • Cons

    Boxy styling, small rear seat, difficult entry/exit.

  • What's New for 2001

    With the redesigned Jeep Cherokee's debut pushed back until the summer of 2001 as a 2002 model, the current model will remain in place for the 2001 model year with minor changes. The 4.0-liter PowerTech inline-six engine is standard equipment in all 2001 Cherokees, with the 2.5-liter inline four, along with the SE trim, dropped. The previous Limited trim is also dropped, with the former Classic trim now labeled Limited. All 2001 Cherokees offer child seat tethers as standard equipment.

Horrible in wet weather

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Jeep Cherokee Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

I have the 2WD model and it's UNSAFE on any kind of wet pavement - in snow, rain, or even if someon's watering their lawn. If the road is wet, I have to be VERY careful about applying the brakes or making a turn. It's too light in the back and fishtails even at very low speeds. Forget about driving it in any kind of snow/ice. I wish I'd bought the base 4x4 instead of the 2WD Limited, but living in Dallas I didn't think I'd use 4x4. It also has an annoyingly LOUD humming / vibration when idling in cold weather, and it's very noisy on the road.




Bye, bye jeep...

I've driven jeeps for the past 5 years and have been pretty happy overall. If jeep had continued to manufacture the Cherokee Limited I probably would have continued to drive it. However, I did experience a number of recurring issues on both my Cherokee and SE models that proved extremely annoying.

Best jeep ever

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Jeep Cherokee Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)

This is our second car, the other being a Grand Cherokee. When the announced the last of the classic Cherokees, we headed out and bought a fully loaded Limited version to keep long term. This is our third Cherokee and we love this vehicle. It is powerful, fun to drive, rugged good looks, comfortable and it was the most vehicle for the money I have ever seen. It has never let us down and has had not one problem with anything. I have a few issues but overall, this last of the Cherokees was the best of them all. If you don't have to drive the most refined vehicle around, this Jeep's for you.

It's classical style combines with top notch performance for an excellent style. Peforms perfectly in any condition, from the interstate to blazing it's own trails across a mountain. The limited includes all the comforts you need for a classy vehicle, but retains all the capabilities that Jeep is renowned for. I'll be a Jeep owner for life!
