Compact crossovers are in no shortage these days, but adventurous souls in the Twin Cities need something that blends real off-road abilities with suburb friendly road manners. See which outdoorsy ute is king of the hill in this comparison of the 2021 Jeep Cherokee versus the 2021 Toyota RAV4.
2021 Jeep Cherokee
2021 Toyota RAV4
|$27,210||Starting MSRP ||$26,250|
|271 horsepower||Maximum Output||203 horsepower|
|129.0 cubic feet||Passenger Volume||99.0 cubic feet|
|Up to 2,000 pounds||Towing Capacity||Up to 1,500 pounds|
Arguably among the most notable differences is that the 2021 Jeep Cherokee offers more interior space than the rivaling 2021 RAV4 – 30 cubic feet more to be exact. Even passengers in the backseat have a claim to 49.9 inches of hip room and 40.3 inches of legroom. Behind the rear seats there’s 25.8 cubic feet of cargo space for grocery hauls, gear, or luggage for a weekend getaway.
Even the base-level Cherokee comes equipped with blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, rain-sensing wipers, full-speed forward-collision warning with active braking, a 7-inch Uconnect® 4 infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™ smartphone integration, and a digital information display. Select trim levels gain more sophisticated features like leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, driver’s seat memory settings, a self-dimming rearview mirror, parallel/perpendicular parking assistance, and so much more.
In a nutshell, the 2021 Jeep Cherokee is the obvious choice for drivers who want a small SUV that provides excellent off-road capability, a selection of powerful engines, and a full arsenal of features for the road ahead.
