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.

Dream vehicle-ol' blue

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

11 years old and deserves a garage and to take a break from the St. Louis summer heat. This is the best vehicle I will ever own. Its only downside is the a/c which is why I bought another car to tag team the seasons. Since 2001, I have replaced the evap core, compressor and engine thermostat (just to be on the safe side, problem cleared). I just don't care that I blew the front speakers and time did its thing to the headliner. The original battery lasted more than 6 years. The back brakes are original at 73k. Nothing is better than driving this car in any situation, any terrain. I haven't shoveled snow in my driveway for 11 yrs. Independence and laziness at its finest.

Best choice for a second

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

I have had company vehicles for a long time and in 2011 lost my job and wheels due to this recession. I needed to buy a vehicle. I needed the price low enough i could pay cash. it needed to be reliable and not prone to engine or trans work. I have been a jeep fan for a while. owned two grand cherokee with no major problems. Anyway so I decided on the old school cherokee because I love its looks. its known for rock solid inline 6 cylinder 4.0L and solid transmission. any smaller problems i will fix myself with the help of the many cherokee fan forums. trust me these guys know everything and are very willing to lend a hand. this is the best bargain out there.

Not to mention its terrible on gas. have to be in 4x4 to make it thru a 1/4 inch of snow. 4wd indicator switch 8x and the new one just broke. this jeep is so piss poor i bought a 2006 mazda because i didnt trust the jeep and the mazda is no good!! yet another bad dicision the jeep forced me to make.

This is my 3rd Cherokee and loved them all. I've had this for 9 years and it runs fantastic. Nothing but oil, tires and brakes in all these years. Off road it totally kicks. It is nimble, quick, engineered very well for its purpose. It is just a very lively and capable JEEP. I expect it to last many more years.

Cubans should buy this jeep. It will be around as long as the 50's cars they drive now and it will be alot nicer. I like keeping things that don't get abandoned by the rest of the rest! We still can buy parts no problem for a jeep 20 yrs old. do as done
