What is a Jeep Laredo?

What is the difference 1989 Jeep Laredo and a 1989 Jeep Cherokee?? I see the added trim below the doors on the Laredo but what else?

Going by memory here. The '89 models came in Base, Pioneer and Laredo. Plus
whatever Wagoneer models they had. Basically it comes down to more features
standard and more options available. My '89 Laredo came with things like Infinity
radio/cassette, lighted visor mirror, tow package and skidplate package. Aluminum
wheels instead of steel, power windows and locks, rear cargo cover, roof rack and
cargo area skid strips. It had a nice cloth interior with vinyl inserts and vinyl and
carpet like material on the door panels. Also the seats were a higher back bucket
instead of the regular seats.

When I bought my '01 I gave my '89 Jeep book/brochure to the guy who bought
my '89.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.

The Laredos were the high end option package.

On my 91, I had everything, but the tow package, ad the skidplates. Not sure about the rims. I have mounts for a rear cargo cover, but no cover either.

I would say the Laredos were the high end model for XJs that were to be used alot on the trail. In 87 they came out with the Limited which was an ever higher end model that had leather and painted bumpers, which to me seemd more like a street XJ. In most years they had the "luxury" model Wagoneer which usually came with leather and faux wood body panels.

It gets quite involved tracking all the models because they overlap and some were discontinued and later brought back. Top of the line models for different years were Wagoneer Limited, Limited, Briarwood, and Country; all of these had leather optional interiors and all the bells and whistles, though they all could be ordered without them...strange I know.
