1974, the Jeep Cherokee was introduced by American Motors Corporation.
It was basically a two door Wagoneer with the same 57 inch tread width.
The Cherokee was designed to compete with the Chevy K5 Blazer and
Ford Bronco of that period. It used the J series truck grill
and had fewer comfort features and chrome than the Wagoneer and did
not have the wrap around tail lights. The new style tail lights
were verticle and this design was later used on the Grand Wagoneers
beginning in 1984. In 1976 the Wide Track two door version of
the Cherokee was introduced. This trail ready rig had the flared fenders
like the J series truck with 63 inch tread width. In 1977, the
four door Cherokee was introduced. This looked very much like
the Wagoneer but also sported less fancy trim and used the grill like
the two door models.
