2019 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2019 Honda CR-V
Jeep first gained prominence for offering no-nonsense, off-road-ready vehicles that can easily handle anything a driver can throw at one of their models. The automaker’s profile has sky-rocketed when they took that rough-and-ready capability and brought it to the tightly-packed crossover SUV segment. A comparison of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2019 Honda CR-V will clearly illustrate why this is such an important development for buyers looking to get out of the sedan segment. To be sure, Honda has built an excellent crossover SUV, but Jeep is able to overshadow its Honda competitor. In short, the 2019 Cherokee offers more available powertrains, which will provide more available performance and more overall capable. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is available at Billion Auto Group today.

Connectivity technology is no longer just a novelty. Owners of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee will have access to both the Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ suites of applications. It will be controlled by a 7-inch touchscreen on the base model. Owners of the 2019 CR-V will need to move up the Honda crossover SUV’s trim ladder past the entry-level to have this same access to technology. As a Jeep Cherokee buyer examines other trims of the crossover SUV, they will eventually be able to choose a version with an 8.4-inch touchscreen. Honda only makes a 7-inch touchscreen available to its owners. Both vehicles make several USB charging ports available to drivers and passengers. Not does the 2019 Cherokee offer more trim grades than the CR-V, but Jeep also has several accessory packages available.

Most of the trim grades for the 2019 Jeep Cherokee will use a naturally aspirated 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a nine-speed automatic transmission. It will make 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. The corresponding trims of the 2019 Honda CR-V use a similar engine, that makes 184 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Honda advocates will point to this as a clear advantage for the CR-V. However, despite this small difference in performance output, models of the 2019 Cherokee with this powertrain will be able to tow 2,000 pounds – outpacing the Honda CR-V.
For maximum performance, Jeep buyers can choose a V-6 or turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that will both make around 270 horsepower. When properly equipped, the 2019 Cherokee can tow up to 4,500 pounds. Under the best circumstances the 2019 Honda CR-V has a max towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.
