The first appearance of Cherokee in the model row of Jeep is dated 1974th. However that auto was only the three-door variant of model of Wagoneer. By the way, give a glance on his grate of radiator, no associations arise up? Correctly - as at GAS-24! Authentic Jeep Cherokee - appeared in 1984, and the index of XJ was appropriated him. This was the first in the world auto in that a complete drive was connected automatically. Without some global changes XJ produced specifically 2001 to, and then on changing Â«big-eyedÂ» KJ come him.
Therefore the wheel-base of Jeep was shortened on a 69 mm, and also cornice was diminished. On Cherokee brand name Selec-Trac II with a subordinate part and lowering row instead of primitive conditional-wheel-drive transmission of Nitro. However instead of inter axle differential that was used on the past generations of model, now a multidisc muff works electronically-controlled. Did simplify? Rather yes, what it is not. Nevertheless, the system BLD (Braking Lock Differential), able to imitate work of the self-locking interweaved differential, is set in a back bridge. Backstops are very, very high quality, has never been seen on my part to errors (use the car for more than a year, is pleased with all of them).
This system is able to be activated automatically, it is needed only to translate the flag-switch of the modes of transmission in position 4WD Low, i.e. at including of lowering row and force distribution of twisting moment in half between axes that seems fully logical. Besides this mode I am also two: 2WD (a muff is dissolute, car RWD) and 4WD Auto (a moment is distributed to the proportion 58: 42 with advantage of back axis, but this relation can change depending on travelling terms).
With both motors (3.7 V6 and turbo diesel 2.8 CRD) we were acquainted on other models of Chrysler. Exactly such are under the hood of Nitro. Cherokee is similar with these motors on a dynamics. A Five step Â«automatÂ» comes for help less powerful CRD instead of four-step on a petrol version, and on an order greater twisting moment â€“ 460 nm against a 314 petrol version. As a result, a diesel motor brings 0,2 withal to the machine with V6 in overcoming of mark in 100 km/h. Another from the pluses of motor working on diesel oil, there is his economy.
However, for her it will be needed to get a bad bargain there an about 1000 dollar at a purchase. Price, in my opinion, is justified and meets the quality completely.
