Jeep Cherokees from the XJ generation are seeing a resurgence in popularity, and well-kept models, like this 2-door Jeep Cherokee Pioneer, now command a high price tag.
For background, Jeep Cherokees from this era were offered in three trim levels: base, Chief and Pioneer. While the Chief was the sporty option and came with black exterior trim and white tire lettering, the Pioneer was the luxurious Cherokee and offered upscale carpeting, a full center console, a rear window wiper and washer and additional gauges in its instrument panel.
As for this Cherokee Pioneer, it’s a 1988 2-door model with a tan interior. It looks to be remarkably well preserved, likely due to having spent its life in the dry desert climate. It’s got roll-up windows, a thin 3-spoke steering wheel and an aftermarket stereo.
Under the hood is Jeep‘s beloved, unbreakable 4.0-liter inline six, which was used throughout much of the company’s lineup during the late 1980s and 1990s. Output for the 4.0-liter would’ve been 177 horsepower and 224 lb-ft of torque — not bad for 1988. Power is sent to the wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission, and there’s a true low-range transfer case for accessing 4-wheel drive high and low.
This virtually flawless 2-door Jeep Cherokee Pioneer is located in Glendale, California, with 119,000 miles on the odometer. Its asking price of $11,495 probably has less to do with low mileage and more to do with the Jeep’s spotless undercarriage. Follow the link for more photos. Find a Jeep Cherokee for sale
