The Jeep Cherokee is a car that never quite made a seamless translation into British automotive culture. For about five minutes back in the mid Eighties it was fashionable, but since then it has been outsold by more sophisticated rivals from both Europe and Asia. Sophisticated only gets you so far when you're up to your axles in mud, though, and one group that Jeep has had no problem selling to are those who actually use the vehicles as Jeep's designers intended. The third generation Cherokee we examine here was a short-lived thing but used examples are around if you're prepared to put in the legwork.
The Jeep Cherokee is a car that came good right at the end of its life. It was still not as plush inside as the best of its rivals but its combination of rugged styling, affordable pricing and go-anywhere capability made it a sound recommendation for anybody who needed a car that could do the true road and trail combination but didn't want to fork out for a Freelander. The only real fly in the ointment was the frankly terrible 228g/km carbon dioxide emissions which ultimately proved its downfall.
If you're looking for a used example, try to find one that has been bought as a bauble and never been subjected to anything more arduous than a drop kerb outside Dorothy Perkins. Then point it at the nearest muddy track and prepare to be amazed Huge fun, huge capability and a modest asking price? There's life in this formula yet.
