Compare the New Jeep Cherokee to the Competition in Corvallis, OR

Finding that perfect SUV that seamlessly combines performance, comfort, and convenience into one sleek option can be a tall task. While many models offer exciting lineups to test drive and explore, the Jeep Cherokee is often a step ahead of the competition, employing legendary Jeep off-road prowess with an arsenal of cozy comforts and innovative technology. You might be tempted to explore popular options like the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Ford Escape, but Lebanon drivers will find that a test drive in the new Cherokee puts it a cut above the competition. Take a look down below to see how each lineup compares to the Jeep Cherokee!

Jeep Cherokee vs. Honda CR-V

  • While the Honda CR-V holds the edge over the Cherokee's base engine with its turbocharged powertrain, it can't quite compare to the other two Jeep engine options. Whether you choose the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder or the 3.2-liter Pentastar® V6, you'll enjoy better horsepower and torque output over the Honda lineup.
  • The Jeep Cherokee can tow a maximum of 4,500 pounds – best-in-class, beating out the CR-V's max towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.
  • The new Cherokee comes equipped with legendary four-wheel drive capability, with the Active Drive System engaging on unpredictable roads and actively monitoring slippage. Honda only offers an all-wheel drive system that isn't as effective as the one in the Jeep Cherokee.
  • The Honda CR-V is often viewed as one of the more spacious options around Salem, OR, but it doesn't offer nearly as much room as the Cherokee. The Jeep SUV offers up to 128 cubic feet of passenger volume, significantly more than the Honda's 105.9 cubic feet.
  • Inside, you'll find that the Jeep Cherokee makes your drive more enjoyable with the Uconnect® 4 with a seven-inch touchscreen display, along with smartphone integration from Apple and Android. The CR-V doesn't offer smartphone integration standard, and you'll need to upgrade to the EX trim to enjoy touchscreen capability.

Jeep Cherokee vs. Toyota RAV4

  • The Toyota SUV's engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that delivers 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, plenty of power for adequate performance. However, that's the only engine option you'll get from the RAV4. The Cherokee offers three options, with both the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and 3.2-liter V6 outpacing the RAV4's lone powertrain.
  • The Toyota RAV4 can tow a bit more than its Honda rival, but it still can't match up to the class-best Cherokee towing capacity of 4,500.
  • If you prefer the off-road experience for your new SUV in Newport, the Jeep Cherokee will be a better match for your lifestyle. Its four-wheel drive system is more adept on gravel, dirt, and mud, offering better traction control and handling over the RAV4's all-wheel drive system.
  • Once again, the Jeep Cherokee shows why it's the better SUV for you and your family. The Cherokee offers a voluminous experience for your passengers, with 128 cubic feet of space to stretch out in. The Toyota RAV doesn't even top 100 cubic feet.
  • While the RAV is standard with an impressive array of driver assistance features, its Blind Spot Monitoring system is only available with the base model. The Jeep Cherokee ensures added protection with the standard Blind Spot and Cross-Path Detection features.

Jeep Cherokee vs. Ford Escape

  • While both models offer a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, the Jeep Cherokee hides a more powerful option under its hood. It leads in horsepower, 270 to 250, and torque, 295 pound-feet to 280 pound-feet. When you want power, the Cherokee is the SUV for you.
  • The Cherokee's 3.2-liter V6 can tow a maximum of 4,500 pounds, making it the ideal choice when you need to bring a trailer along on your next adventure. The Ford Escape can only manage 3,500 pounds of maximum towing weight when properly equipped.
  • The Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk® proves its exceptional capability and surefootedness by boasting the Trail Rated® badge for all to see. The Ford Escape's intelligent AWD system isn't nearly as adept in off-road situations.
  • Staying connected to your music and apps on the go is easy with the new Jeep Cherokee. The lineup comes standard with the Uconnect® 4 system, a seven-inch touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. The Ford Escape limits you with only a 4.2-inch screen and no touchscreen or seamless smartphone connectivity standard.
  • Your passengers will thank you for a trip around Albany, OR in the Jeep Cherokee, thanks to a spacious 128 cubic feet of space to stretch out in. Unfortunately, the Ford Escape only manages 104 cubic feet of space, making things feel a bit more cramped inside.
