Dare to Compare- Jeep Cherokee

The crossover segment is booming and automakers are constantly making their vehicles more competitive as a result. The 2017 Jeep Cherokee is a model designed for travel on multiple terrains, something competitors like the Ford Escape and Toyota RAV4 can't say. When it comes down to a comparison, the Jeep Cherokee tops the Escape and RAV4 time and time again.

Jeep Cherokee vs Ford Escape

  • Versatile storage comes standard in the new Jeep Cherokee thanks to in-seat storage and a fold-flat passenger seat. The Ford Escape doesn't offer any comparable feature.
  • The Cherokee comes with standard roof rails and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Both features will cost extra in the new Escape.
  • When it comes to capability, the Cherokee has the upper hand. The latest model offers a 4,500-pound maximum towing capacity when properly equipped. The Escape offers a maximum towing capacity of just 3,500 pounds.
  • Safety comes standard and even the smallest feature can make all the difference in an accident. That's why the Cherokee features standard anti-whiplash front seat head restraints, equipment that the Escape lacks altogether.

Jeep Cherokee vs Toyota RAV4

  • While the Jeep Cherokee offers standard roof rails and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, the Toyota RAV4 lacks both features altogether.
  • While the 2017 Cherokee boasts a hefty maximum towing capacity of 4,500 pounds, the RAV4 comes in with a maximum towing capacity of just 1,500 pounds.
  • The RAV4 has an adventurous style, but can't back it up. The Cherokee offers standard Active Drive I 4x4 and class-exclusive Select-Terrain. The RAV4 fails to offer either feature.
  • The Cherokee offers 10 standard airbags, the most in its class. The RAV4 offers just six standard airbags.

When it comes down to an adventurous, capable crossover, there's no better choice than the 2017 Jeep Cherokee. The latest model boasts an advanced four-wheel drive system, plenty of storage, and top safety features. Check out the new Jeep Cherokee at Pischke Motors of LaCrosse today!
