This 1996 Jeep Cherokee 4x4 Country edition is a highly stock and
loaded example of the icon that launched the modern SUV movement.
So you get the look of a classic, but with plenty of comfort and
convenience to be everyday practical.
The Cherokee XJ was a true revolution that combined the right size
and capabilities like no other vehicle before. So it's great to
find such a correct-style example. Not only is much of the paint
believed to be highly original, but also it has the perfect name:
Stone White. After all, it just seems to describe the well-chiseled
lines that made this go-anywhere machine a true icon of its era.
And because this was more than a utilitarian machine, there were
premium trim levels, including this Country. Champagne fender
flares, body classing, and pinstriping all coordinate to look good
against the white. Fog lights, a luggage rack, and a proper trailer
hitch remind you that this upscale SUV is still a true Jeep. This
was an ideal year to own a Cherokee. It was the final year of the
original XJ before a body refresh. It means you get the most modern
version of a true classic. You see it in the Country edition with
the grille inserts, door handles, mirrors done in a fashionable
black. And another great piece of these few years is the stylish
set of premium 15-inch alloys. It all makes for a premium 4x4
that's both a mountain climber and a social climber.
The loaded interior is clean, complete, and quite inviting. There
are two rows of full seating with plenty of room for everyone's
gear. But the front always takes priority with high-back bucket
seats and a center console in-between. And this has the best
features like power windows, power locks, electric rear defogger,
cruise control, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And just like
the exterior, this model year gives you desirable later features,
like a driver's airbag. There are a few details you may want to
address like the headliner or an upgraded stereo just because not
everything can last over a quarter-century, but overall, you will
be impressed with the way the stock environment turns back the
clock...and does it with style.
Under the hood is a correct 4.0-liter motor. This inline-six was
derived from the tough-as-nails AMC line of motors, and so you get
durability and economy. Factory fuel injection only enhances this
reputation. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case means this is a true
off-road Jeep. But the full appeal of the Cherokee is that it also
has an everyday kind of easy feeling. That's why you also have
power steering, power brakes with front discs, and a four-speed
automatic transmission that features highway-friendly
The way these XJs send our nostalgia into overdrive is also the
reason why it's so hard to find a well-preserved and well-priced
example like this. Call today!!!
