Features of the 2001 Jeep Cherokee include vinyl seats, bucket seats for passengers in the front of the vehicle, a folding seatback in the rear and power steering. Additional features include a mast antenna, an AM/FM stereo and four speakers in the vehicle. Some features vary by model style.
Many reviewers consider the vehicle's 16 miles per gallon city and 21 mpg highway fuel consumption rates an important feature of the 2001 Jeep Cherokee, and the vehicle initially sold with model styles that offered either a manual or an automatic transmission. The 2001 Jeep Cherokee seats five passengers comfortably with large leg room areas and vinyl seats, and new vehicles originally came with a three-year or 36,000 mile warranty from the manufacturer. A rear cargo liftgate makes it easy to add and haul items, and the built-in radio included cassette playback.
Optional features that appeared as standard extras on certain model styles include power door mirrors, up to four doors, a voltimeter gauge in the instrument cluster, a rear window wiper and alloy wheels. Available options for added features at the time of purchase include skid plates, air conditioning, power front windows and a tilt steering wheel. Some styles also offered optional CD players and trip computers.
