Used Jeep Cherokee – Colorado Springs, CO
The Jeep Cherokee is one of the most iconic SUVs ever made. The original model was released for the 1974 model year, and has been a favorite option for buyers in the crossover SUV segment ever since. Spanning over four decades and five generations, the Jeep Cherokee is as hardy as it is iconic. What started out as a full-size SUV, has evolved into a compact crossover model that is sold around the world. The Cherokee was the inspiration for the brand to create the Grand Cherokee model, which is now Jeep’s most successful nameplate. The Cherokee has long been a staple at Jeep dealerships across the country, and shoppers are finding exceptional value in used Jeep Cherokee models from the crossover’s newest fifth generation.
If you have always wanted to own a Jeep Cherokee crossover SUV, now is a great time ot turn your dream into reality. The fifth generation of the Cherokee model began in 2014, introduced back to the American marketplace after a brief absence. The redesigned Cherokee was all-new, and had grown into a midsize crossover, as Jeep departed ways with the smaller compact style it had most recently manufactured. If you are looking to purchase a like-new Cherokee model from Jeep’s lineup, the crossover SUV’s fifth generation is your absolute best bet.
2014 Jeep Cherokee
Up until this year, Jeep Cherokee models featured a boxy body style, and were considered compact in size. For the first model year of the Cherokee’s fifth generation, however, Jeep had something entirely different in mind. The all-new, completely redesigned 2014 Cherokee was the surprise of the year, and was what Jeep brand fans were hoping to see when this model was finally revealed to the public. A bold new exterior styling made the newest Cherokee immediately stand out from all previous model years, and made it instantly recognizable on the streets and highways of America. The new sculpted shape of the midsize crossover allowed for enhanced aerodynamics that the outdated boxy style did not allow. As always, the Jeep Cherokee delivered class-leading off-road capabilities that other brands could not match, as well as plenty of on-road practicality. The standard 2014 Cherokee came equipped with a 2.4-liter Tigershark I4 engine that was capable of producing 184 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque. The only other powerblock option was a 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 which was noticeably more powerful with a horsepower rating of 271, delivering a responsive 239 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines came with a nine-speed automatic transmission, and the 2014 Cherokee was available with either front wheel drive, or Jeep’s capable off-road four-wheel drive system. Properly equipped, the 2014 Cherokee can tow up to 4,500 pounds, which is more than impressive for its midsize crossover designation. The 2014 model year of the Cherokee was also important in terms of advanced safety technology and connectivity features, both of which were not widely available on previous model years. Forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and rear cross path detection systems were all optional for the first time in the Cherokee’s history, making it even more appealing for buyers looking for an affordably capable pre-owned version in 2017. All in all, this Cherokee model represented a rebirth of one of Jeep’s longest running nameplates in history.
2015 Jeep Cherokee
Because the Cherokee had just received a redesign of epic proportions, the 2015 model year went into the history books as relatively uneventful. Aside from a few very minor changes, the 2015 Cherokee was still very much a new model offering from the iconic Jeep brand. Those small updates to the 2015 Cherokee model included the addition of a start/stop engine function on Cherokees equipped with the V6 engine, and a low-speed frontal crash mitigation system was made available for the first time in 2015. Other exciting changes included a new safety package which featured a blind spot monitoring system, rear cross path detection, and park assist as a single bundled unit. For drivers with a more refined vehicle taste, the 2015 Cherokee also offered ventilated front leather seats, making it increasingly more appealing for used car shoppers wanting enhanced luxury amenities, for much less money.
2016 Jeep Cherokee
One of the most recent additions to the Cherokee lineup is the 2016 model. Despite the fact that the best-selling Cherokee model was not updated in 2016, there are still plenty of things that make it a great vehicle to purchase used. Standard 2016 Jeep Cherokee crossovers came with 17-inch steel wheels, remote keyless entry, power windows and door locks, convenient 60/40-split rear bench seats, a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, Bluetooth hands-free integration, a five-inch touchscreen display, and so much more. With such a long list of enhanced features that came standard, new models sold as higher trim levels offered even more of what used car shoppers want in their midsize crossover SUVs. Available options on new 2016 Cherokee models included heated side mirrors, a heated steering wheel, rear backup camera, fog lamps, roof rails, and ambient interior lighting. Leather upholstery, a dual sunroof, power rear liftgate, and a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen display was also offered on this Cherokee model. Simply put, if you want to drive a fully-equipped like-new Cherokee model, a pre-owned 2016 Jeep Cherokee is your best bet. Take advantage of the upgrades that the original owner added when you purchase used, and you’ll save yourself from paying for every add on you want your crossover to have.
