In 1974, the Jeep Cherokee began being manufactured. The Cherokee was originally produced as a two door full-size SUV. The second generation Cherokee began production for the 1984 model year. At that time, the Cherokee moved from the platform used by the Wagoneer to a new unibody platform. Over the years, the Cherokee has moved from the full-size class of SUVs to the compact class, and it is now considered a mid-size crossover SUV. Now in the fifth generation of production, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is built in Belvidere, Illinois at the Belvidere Assembly Plant.
