Where can I buy one?

Apart from Autotrader, Classic Car and eBay you will not find one. Some of these photos are from davisautosports.com who seem to have the best selection. Otherwise it’s pot luck or look in your local Jeep-Club.co.uk website. The badge came from Just for Jeeps and the interior shot was a UK model seen on ebay.

While most of these XJ Jeeps were powered by the bullitt proof 180 bhp 4.0 straight six engine, with automatic 4 speed gearbox or manual 5 speed gearbox, they were were mostly sold in the North American market. There were Jeep Cherokee 60th anniversary models sold in Europe, making the UK version a Right-Hand Drive 4cyl 2.5 TD diesel a rare model. There are probably only a few hundred left now. That’s as rare as a 2001 Ford Mustang Bullitt.

What you get with the UK version

Giving around 37mpg (UK) on a run and a 30mpg average, it’s a cheap truck to drive. The 2001 Jeep Cherokee 2.5 TD Turbo Diesel 60th Anniversary, 4×4, 5 Door Station Wagon, with a 5 Speed Manual gearbox, 221 feet pounds of Torque at 2000rpm. The 16 inch 5 Spoke 7J Alloy wheels are smart. Full Leather, Electric Heated Seats, Leather Steering Wheel. Trip Computer, Air Con, ABS, PAS, Heated Rear Windows, Electric Windows/Mirrors, Smart Key Immobilizer, Side Impact Guards, 2 Power Sockets, Illuminated Vanity Mirrors, Remote Central Locking Keys, Seat & Steering Wheel Height Adjustment.

The 2.5 litre VM Diesel engine runs great, pulls well. It will cruise happily at 70-80mph, Slow it down to 55/60mph and you’ll see over 40 UK mpg, Normal day to day driving you’ll see 27-35 UK mpg. Then it will drive great off road as well.
