Jeep Cherokee vs Honda CR-V
In the Jeep Cherokee and the Honda CR-V, the drivers around Wilsonville, Woodburn, Portland, and the rest of Oregon have two remarkable options—both are great SUVs that feature dynamic capabilities, striking exterior designs, and more than a few high-tech features. So, the question is… Which one do you choose? That’s why our Wilsonville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram team created this article to help you out.
Engine Power and Capabilities
We’ll kick things off with the 2019 Jeep Cherokee, as it gives you three powerful engine options.
- 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir® 2: Dual Variable Valve Timing and Flow-Control Valve Intake Manifold
- 3.2L Pentastar® V6: Towing capacity of up to 4,500 pounds1 and up to 29 highway miles per gallon2
- 2.0L Turbo: 270 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque, and up to 31 miles per gallon on the highway3
Unfortunately, we’re not as impressed with the 2019 Honda CR-V’s engines. It offers several, including an Inline 4-Cylinder Engine and even a Turbocharged Inline 4-Cylinder Engine, but their power outputs only go as high as 184 horsepower/180 lb-ft of torque and 190 horsepower/179 lb-ft of torque, respectively.
The Cherokee also lets you choose among three different 4×4 systems (Jeep Active Drive I 4×4 System, Jeep Active Drive II 4×4 System, or Jeep Active Drive Lock 4×4 System), while the CR-V only gives you the choice between either upgrading to their Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ or foregoing.
Beautifully Designed Exteriors
Moving on, not only is the Cherokee powerful and capable, but it’s also one heck of a good-looking SUV.
That shouldn’t come as a surprise—all of Jeep’s vehicles are beautiful. Not only does the 2019 Cherokee sport the standard Jeep fare (such as that iconic slotted grille, premium LED headlamps and fog lamps, and a sporty fascia), but it’s also available in about seven stunningly simplistic exterior colors:
- Velvet Red Pearl
- Blue Shade Pearl
- Olive Green Pearl
- Billet Silver Metallic
- Light Brownstone Pearl
- Bright White Clear Coat
- Diamond Black Crystal Pearl
On the other hand, while the 2019 CR-V also comes in a bunch of exterior colors, its overall look isn’t nearly as modern as the Cherokee’s. All in all, it just looks like your standard SUV.
State-of-the-Art Tech Systems
Last, but certainly not least, both of these new SUVs are filled to the brim with the latest entertainment, navigation, and connectivity. For example, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee comes with Apple CarPlay® Support, Android Auto™ Integration, Bluetooth® connectivity, and even the SiriusXM® All Access Package. The 2019 Honda CR-V comes with a bunch of comparable features, including the software to connect your phone.
