2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)
The 2001 Cherokee has been an excellent mid-sized SUV for family trips and for my wife to carry the grandchildren in around town. It handles very well in the city, is easy to park and can easily handle large loads of luggage or bagged mulch. The decision to stop making the Cherokee can only be equated to the decision some years ago to stop making real Coke. It was a bad decision and all of the Cherokee owners I have talked to have agreed. Wake up Jeep and put the Cherokee back in production with a diesel engine.
Favorite features of the Cherokee are the clean design lines, good carrying capacity, comfort of the interior and especially the reliability.
Reissue the Cherokee with a fuel efficient diesel engine as one of the engine choices.
