It may look like an ordinary small crossover SUV, but the 2015 Jeep Cherokee has the heart of a true off-roading master. If you live in Kaneohe, Wahiawa, or Hawaii Kai, HI and are shopping for a tough-as-nails Jeep SUV, visit Cutter Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Honolulu.
The 2015 Honda CR-V is most at home cruising around town or taking the kids to school, but when the road ends its usefulness does, too and the Jeep Cherokee keeps truckin'.
Real Off-Road Ability
If you were to drive the Jeep Cherokee with AWD and the Honda CR-V with AWD to the mall and back, you wouldn't notice much difference in their on-road manners. When the going - and the road - gets rough though, the Jeep is ready to take on the challenge with traditional off-roading prowess. The optional Active Drive II system on the Cherokee comes with an extra low gearing range for real serious trail crawling. Select models even come trail-rated; the CR-V should stick to the streets, its AWD system is tuned for taking on bad weather, not blazing trails.
Real Towing Cability
Comparing base four-cylinder configurations, the Jeep will out tow the Honda by 500lbs. If you have a personal watercraft, quad, or dirt bike to haul, don't look to the Honda. The CR-V's towing rating is maxed out at 1,500lbs, while the Cherokee can handle up to 2,000lbs with the base I4. The Honda has no optional motor, so you're stuck with the four-cylinder put-put, but the Cherokee offers an optional V6 engine good for towing up to 4500lbs (with available tow package). With that much prowess, the Jeep Cherokee could even help tow the Honda CR-V out of a tight spot!
With their base engines, the Honda CR-V and Jeep Cherokee are equally matched for power. We've mentioned that Jeep offers a V6 option, which delivers 271hp, compared to the 185hp the Honda's always-present four-cylinder. That V6 is one of the reasons the Jeep can tow more, and it's the big reason the Cherokee can go from 0-60 mph in less than 7.5 seconds, with or without AWD.
