The New Jeep Cherokee is Tough, Rugged and Ready to Take on Any Road Ahead of You in Springfield, IL 

Searching for the right SUV that can handle your daily commute just as well as off-road adventures can be a challenge especially when you want something that is comfortable and well-equipped. Jeep has long been known for legendary off-road capabilities but that's not all they excel in and the Jeep Cherokee stands at the forefront of the SUV market with style, comfort and performance. Popular models like the Honda CR-V are impressive but they lack the same quality and dependability that the Jeep Cherokee delivers for drivers in Chatham, IL. Check out a side by side comparison of the two models below and find the right fit for your life.

Performance 

  • The Cherokee offers three engine packages to the two from the Honda CR-V. The base engine of the Jeep Cherokee, the 2.4-liter, doesn't offer the same output that you'll find with the 2.4-liter on the CR-V. However, the Jeep Cherokee does offer a 3.2-liter V6 which the Honda CR-V can't match in pure output. It outclasses even the turbocharged Honda engine in horsepower (271 to 190) and torque (239 pounds per feet to 179 pounds per feet.) 
  • Both models keep it simple with one type of transmission: a nine-speed automatic in the Jeep model and a continuously variable transmission in the Honda SUV. 
  • The Honda CR-V only offers an available all-wheel drive, the Jeep Cherokee can handle even the toughest roads with its tough four-wheel drive systems. It offers features like Jeep Active Drive I, Jeep Active Drive II and Jeep Active Drive Lock to handle a variety of roads as well as sand, rock and snow. 
  • The Jeep Cherokee can tow a standard 2,000 pounds but when properly equipped can achieve a maximum of 4,500 pounds. The Honda CR-V doesn't even come close with only a maximum 1,500 pounds. 

Interior 

  • If you're looking to provide the most comfort for your passengers, the Jeep Cherokee is the way to go. It offers 128 cubic feet of space for everyone to stretch out in and get cozy. The Honda CR-V does offer impressive headroom and legroom but it pales in comparison with overall passenger space by only offering 105.9 cubic feet. Both models offer seating for five passengers. 
  • The Jeep Cherokee doesn't quite match the capacity of the Honda CR-V but the Jeep model does hidden storage compartments to provide extra storage for all your needs. 

Technology 

  • When it comes to listening to your favorite music, the Jeep Cherokee comes standard with the Uconnect® 4 alongside a seven-inch touchscreen. The Honda CR-V only comes standard with a five-inch non-touchscreen and you need to upgrade to a more expensive trim configuration to match the seven-inch touchscreen. 
  • Both models offer Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for easy smartphone integration but only the Jeep model includes it with every trim configuration. The base trim of the Honda SUV does not offer these features at all. 
  • Both SUVs offer amenities like heated front seats but if you want your second-row passengers to find the same comfort, you would need to choose the Jeep Cherokee. It offers heated second-row seats which are not available with the Honda SUV. Want to keep cool? The Jeep Cherokee offers ventilated front seats while the Honda CR-V again lacks the technology. 

Safety 

  • Both models offer a similar package of safety features to help you keep an extra pair of eyes on the road. Neither offers them on their base model but upgrading to their respective trim levels gives you access to Blind-Spot and Cross-Path Detection and Full Speed Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation.
