The Brute

2001 Jeep Cherokee Classic 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)


I bought my 4WD Cherokee for one reason, no other small or midsize SUV at the time or now had the reputation and ability to pull my 23 ft saltwater walk-around fishing boat and tandem axle trailer. After 6 plus years of yeoman like duty, hauling that boat on trips as long as 1100 miles. I've replaced the radiator, water pump and a u-joint in 150K miles. It's amusing to slip into 4Wheel High on a wet boat ramp and walk up the ramp while larger pickups and SUVs spin their tires hooked to smaller boats. I wish they still made them and because I don't I won't be getting rid of mine anytime soon. It's a little Brute!

Best Features

Tougher than steel girders 4 Litre inline 6 cyl engine and AW4 automatic transmission. It's a truck in ride and handling to be sure, but a reliable, nimble and convenient truck.

Worst Features

The back seat is its weakest point. Very little comfort for rear passengers.
