Jeep Cherokee / Liberty

TIMING CHAIN OR BELT? MODEL LIST - (UPDATED 2022)

| Home / Jeep / List of Jeep Cherokee / Liberty Models without Timing Belt

The Jeep Cherokee is a SUV ( D-segment in Europe) produced by the American manufacturer Jeep, within the Italian conglomerate FCA (now Stellantis). It dates back to 1974, when it was first marketed as a full-size SUV (F-segment). The Jeep Cherokee was sold as a variant of the Jeep Wagoneer, and has evolved into a midsize SUV. Currently, this vehicle has a total of 5 generations. Jeep also sells the Jeep Grand Cherokee, a luxury version of this SUV.

The Cherokee became truly popular during its second generation, in which Jeep even replaced traditional sedans and estate cars. Such was the demand that its replacement, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, was released as a completely independent vehicle. This initiated a successive line of vehicles that evolved to what is now considered Jeep’s flagship.

The Jeep Cherokee changed its name in the United States starting with the third generation and was renamed Jeep Liberty to differentiate it from the Grand Cherokee. The marque has also shown intentions to change this name in other markets in the future. It had a size similar to the previous generation’s. It was the smallest car by the brand until the Jeep Patriot and the Jeep Compass were launched.

The fourth generation of Cherokee / Liberty was also sold as Dodge Nitro. Due to its inability to meet emission regulations, the diesel variant wasn’t available in the United States.

The fifth and current generation of this vehicle lost some of its off-road bodywork to become a more standard SUV or crossover. The Cherokee Gen 5 is the first Jeep vehicle to be built on the FCA Compact Wide platform, jointly developed by Chrysler and Fiat.

Just as the Cherokee had already changed its name in the United States so that it would not be confused with the Grand Cherokee, the head of the Cherokee Nation asked Jeep to change the name of this model in 2021. Stellantis said they would ponder the request.

Alternatives to the Jeep Cherokee include the Land Rover Freelander, Mitsubishi Montero, Kia Sorento, although the current model competes against luxury SUVs such as the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, BMW X3 and Audi Q5.
