For Sale: 1996 Jeep Cherokee in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

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 overdrive.


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!!!
