Serving Wilmington, Middletown, and Glasgow, DE

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee and the Honda CR-V are very different options in the category of SUV vehicles. Both the Jeep Cherokee and the Honda CR-V have been through several redesigning efforts and a number of fantastic upgrades and also many improvement projects to both of these SUVs. Of course there are drivers who would prefer having a Jeep Cherokee, and still, there are those who would go for the Honda CR-V. After careful and complete analysis with close comparison of details, the best option between these two quite interesting SUVs is the Jeep Cherokee, where we detail its superior characteristics, which make it the best choice between these SUVs.

Engine

In comparing the Jeep Cherokee and the Honda CR-V, it is important to understand that these SUVs feature quite different motors. The Jeep Cherokee features a powerful 3.2L 6cyl motor while the Honda CR-V has a 1.5L 4cyl motor. In taking a close look at torque, the Jeep Cherokee measures 239 SAE Net Torque @ 4400 RPM. Even though the Honda CR-V offers considerable torque for a smaller, 4cyl motor it still underperforms the Jeep Cherokee because the Honda CR-V features an output 179 SAE Net Torque @ 2000 RPM. Due to the Jeep Cherokee's edge on torque, it allows the driver better to have better control over the vehicle when response time is limited. In addition, the Jeep Cherokee also outperforms the Honda CR-V in the category of engine horsepower since it can reach up to 271 SAE Net Horsepower @ 6500 RPM, while the Honda CR-V features less horsepower, which is measured at 179 SAE Net Horsepower @ 5500 RPM. Between these two SUV's, the Jeep Cherokee undoubtedly features a better over-all motor performance than the Honda CR-V.

Dimensions

Another important characteristic to take into consideration when deciding on which SUV to buy is how big the vehicle is. When you trying to decide which SUV is the best choice, you probably already know that drivers and passengers can often be simply tall or just bigger than other people. Therefore, when considering the three dimensions of height, width, and length, the Jeep Cherokee is nearly 2 inches wider than the Honda CR-V, so this offers more seating space in the back seat of the Jeep Cherokee. The height dimension, in comparison also offers the Jeep Cherokee more headroom for taller drivers and passengers since it is nearly 1 inch taller than the Honda CR-V. These two advantages in width and height categories will most likely offer a more comfortable ride for taller and bigger drivers and passengers those that will be riding in a Jeep Cherokee.

Interior Quality

The Jeep Cherokee features premium leather seats that are made with superior leather quality and craftsmanship when compared to the standard leather seats of the Honda CR-V. Both the Jeep Cherokee and the Honda CR-V have good technological features such as Bluetooth, navigation, cruise control, keyless ignition, and satellite radio, but the Jeep Cherokee takes the lead with its parking assistance feature, which is not available in the Honda CR-V. The parking assistance feature is very convenient since SUV drivers cannot see all parts of the vehicle when it is time to park it.
