The Cherokee Nation wants Jeep to stop using its name on the popular 45-year-old vehicle

Relations between Native American tribes and corporate imagery depicting the people has shifted dramatically in the past few years. Jeep The Cherokee Nation wants Jeep to stop using the tribe's name, which the brand has used since 1975. Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. says he anticipates "further discussions" over a potential rebranding. Hoskin told Insider, "Our names were carefully selected by our ancestors before written history." Visit the Business section of Insider for more stories. The Che...

2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude LUX: Meet The New Member of The Cherokee Lineup

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude LUX ramps up the automaker’s offerings in the red-hot midsize SUV segment with the LUXury appeal right in its name. Past Cherokee lineups have received solid scores from many industry analysts including those at J.D. Power that listed it the third most popular in its 2018 list of  10 Most Popular Midsize SUVs and Crossovers. JD Power also gave it a 5 out of 5 score in its 2019 list of Highest Quality Family SUVs. With economic uncertainty, though, the question ...

Barely-there Jeep Nixed for ’21

Look up the Jeep Cherokee on the brand’s consumer website and you’ll see a lot of trims, but there’s also one you won’t see: Overland. Topping the Cherokee trim ladder, Overland is a well-appointed but under-advertised ride, meaning it’s one you don’t see much of plying local streets or sitting patiently outside the grocery store.

In a Bid to Boost Appeal, Jeep Cherokee Dials Up the Lux

Before most of us were aware of the existence of coronavirus, Fiat Chrysler was idling its Jeep Cherokee plant to align production with falling sales. It certainly wasn’t the first time in recent memory. As the model grew in age, sales fell — to the tune of 20 percent in 2019. Cherokee production, like that […] The post In a Bid to Boost Appeal, Jeep Cherokee Dials Up the Lux appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

How To Remove Pistons From An Engine

Since Michigan has a stay-at-home order due to the coronavirus, I’ve been partaking in what I am now officially dubbing Wrenchfest 2020—an all-out repair assault on my various broken cars. Last weekend was a good one for my Jeep Cherokee Golden Eagle, as I cracked into its AMC 360 V8 engine. Here’s a look at how I…Read more...

Sales Dip Idles Jeep Cherokee Plant

While Jeep may be a big money maker for Fiat Chrysler, the rugged off-road brand’s products aren’t all doing fabulously. A downturn in consumer enthusiasm has left the automaker with too many Cherokees in its inventory, so something has to give. Belvidere Assembly goes dark for two weeks this month. As reported by Automotive News, […] The post Sales Dip Idles Jeep Cherokee Plant appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

QOTD: Are There Any Collectibles Amongst the Rubble?

Monday’s QOTD post by Matthew Guy inquiring about some of the seriously overpriced metal on today’s collector car market got me thinking. And what it got me thinking about was the present state of cars, and if there’s going to be much worthy of collecting at a later date. We’re in some dark times, automotively speaking. Allow me […] The post QOTD: Are There Any Collectibles Amongst the Rubble? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

No Fixed Abode: Is the Liberty Ready for Its Cherokee Moment?

Somewhere in my basement there’s an issue of Roundel, the BMW club magazine, that contains an extremely passionate and forceful article regarding a new vehicle from Munich. The author goes on in considerable detail regarding the new car’s size, weight, and insane complexity. He rails against the dilution of BMW’s Autobahn heritage and the compromises […] The post No Fixed Abode: Is the Liberty Ready for Its Cherokee Moment? appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Jeep Recalling 48,990 Cherokees Over Fire Risk

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is under recall due to some improperly fitted fuel tubes. As the issue relates to the possibility of a gas leak, this falls under the fire-risk category and should have people freaking out left and right. However, the problem is only associated with Cherokees equipped with the 16-valve 2.4-liter inline-four engine.

Junkyard Find: 1995 Jeep Cherokee Right-hand Drive

The XJ Jeep Cherokee has been in production for nearly 35 years (if you count the BAW Knight S12, which I do) and remains very popular as a daily driver in Colorado, so I see many discarded examples in Denver-area wrecking yards. It takes a special XJ to inspire me to shoot photographs for this […] The post Junkyard Find: 1995 Jeep Cherokee Right-hand Drive appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Capable Off-Road; In Other News, Water Wet

Jeep really loves touting its off-road heritage, along with the capability of its current stable of SUVs. To that end, FCA invited Chicago-area automotive media out to play in the mud at an off-road park in central Illinois. The very same off-road park in which I stuffed a Ford Raptor into the mud, multiple times.

2019 Jeep Cherokee First Drive – Refreshed Looks in Search of a Power Boost

Jeep loves to brag about how capable its SUVs are off-road, and the brand can back it up. But considering that most folks who purchase SUVs use them only on-road, does rock-crawling ability outweigh on-road performance? For most buyers, I suspect the answer is no. That could be a bit of a problem for the […] The post 2019 Jeep Cherokee First Drive – Refreshed Looks in Search of a Power Boost appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Ace of Base: 2019 Jeep Cherokee Latitude

When the last Cherokee showed up in 2014, its front fascia was comprised of an alarming set of headlights set deep into a scowling bumper, paired with toenail-clipping DRLs at the leading edge of its hood. It was distinctive, to be kind. This year at Detroit, a refreshed Cherokee took the FCA stage, sporting a […] The post Ace of Base: 2019 Jeep Cherokee Latitude appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Gets New Engine to Go With New Face

We know from spy photos that the refreshed 2019 Jeep Cherokee will (finally) ditch its awkward stacked headlamps, instead adopting a conventional setup that doesn’t make the vehicle look like it’s squinting. The look is more in keeping with the second-generation Compass and Grand Cherokee.

Lucky is the new car buyer who isn’t saddled with a trip to the dealer for recall work within the first few years of ownership.

August 2017 Auto Sales: SUV, Truck Sales Keep Automakers Afloat

It’s been a tough year for a lot of automakers. Sales have generally been down, and only a few brands have been able to post significant gains. But while July was especially rough, August actually looked pretty good for a few brands. Maybe the sky isn’t falling. For now. Ford (209,897 units, -2.1 percent) Winner: F-Series (77,007 units, +15.0 percent) What can we say? Americans love trucks, and they definitely love the F-Series.

Jeep’s U.S. Sales Down 13 Percent This Year: Right Where We Wanna Be?

If the rate of growth FCA’s Jeep brand experienced in the United States in 2016 could be carried forward into 2017, Jeep would sell 1,000,000 SUVs/crossovers this year. Count the zeros. 1 million. For a company that sold fewer than 300,000 vehicles per year coming out of the recession, that’s an absurd figure.

Dial Down the Base: Troublesome Fiat Chrysler Models Due for a Trim Shuffle

Sure, there’s no vinyl bench seats and standard Slant Six engine, but this isn’t 1981 and Chrysler Corporation isn’t trying to boost sales by stripping down a LeBaron and calling it Special.

Stretched Chinese Jeep Concept Could Preview Chrysler Crossover

Chinese car buyers are big fans of stretched American midsize sedans, and extra-long crossovers are seen as the next logical way for U.S. automakers to woo buyers into the brand.

Review: Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk

Some would agree that it is not easy being the middle child. In today’s Jeep family, you could argue this is where the Cherokee stands. Mention Jeep Cherokee to any Jeep fan worth his or her salt and they will recall the iconic XJ Cherokee, sold from 1983 to 2001. The XJ was a massive success for Jeep. However by 2001, the beloved Cherokee was hopelessly outdated, and was replaced by the radically different. Still recognizable as a Jeep, the Liberty had curves, and appeared to try to look ‘cute...

Jeep’s New Compass and Old Cherokee are About to Step All Over Each Other
