The Jeep Cherokee is an epic line-up of SUVs from Jeep. The latest generation bowed out this year amidst some calls over the use of the Cherokee nameplate. Controversy aside, the Cherokee started life as a full-sizer, moving into the compact category with the second generation, where it has remained ever since. This 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ Sport comes from the second generation, known as the XJ. The XJ ran from 1984 to 2002 and was produced outside the United States as well. Up for grabs is a nice 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ Sport with just 59,633 reportedly original miles.
This silver 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ Sport with its roof rack, 16-inch wheels, all-terrain tires, and fog lights is the quintessential American SUV to own and drive. Its unmistakable silhouette is only enhanced by the presence of an off-road front bumper and a rear off-road tailgate that supports the spare wheel too. A closer look reveals the headlamps to be upgraded units with projector lighting and a winch has been mounted within the front bumper as well. All in all, this 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ Sport is ready to rumble off-road at your desire. Inside, there's a black and gray cabin with fabric seating for up to five adults. We're told that the carpet is new. We also observe some creature comforts such as power windows, power mirrors, power door locks, cruise control, air conditioning, and a radio with a cassette tape player. This is all pretty standard stuff nowadays, but it was quite technologically advanced when this vehicle came out of the factory.
Sporting a 4.0L in-line six-cylinder engine, this 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ Sport isn't going to win any drag strip awards, but that's not its purpose in life. The AMC-derived six may make just 193hp at 4,600rpm and 231lb-ft at 3,000rpm, but this kind of low-rev power is best for off-roading, and the engine is renowned for reliability. Coupled with an Aisin 4-speed automatic transmission and two-speed transfer case, you've got plenty of capability at your disposal. Power steering and power brakes ease the driving experience on and off-road.
