Are you dreaming of an SUV that's powerful and comfortable while cruising the roads near Lewisburg, Sunbury, Danville, PA, and beyond? If so, should you make these dreams a reality with either the 2021 Jeep Cherokee or the 2021 Honda CR-V?

To help break down the differences between these two vehicles, our team at B.Z. Motors Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT has put together this comparison. After reading, be sure to reach out with any questions!

Which Has More Towing Power?

Thinking that you should have used a bigger boat on that last deep-sea fishing trip? When comparing SUVs, towing capacity is a top factor for many drivers. This allows adventurers to bring a more suitable boat-or pack extra gear on excursions.

The Jeep Cherokee offers a smooth and powerful ride with its standard 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine and 9-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds when properly equipped.

For comparison, we have the Honda CR-V's engine design. This SUV comes standard with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine. The engine yields a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds in CR-V trims when properly equipped. Each CR-V trim tops out at the same towing capacity. Meanwhile, the available towing capacity of each Jeep Cherokee engine yields more towing power than the CR-V.

In the Cherokee, you can opt for the available 2L Turbo engine for greater towing capacity. The engine achieves a maximum towing power of 4,000 pounds when properly equipped. You can also select the 3.2L Pentastar® V6 Engine for additional towing heft. The muscular engine can haul up to 4,500 pounds of cargo when properly equipped.

If you are looking for increased towing performance, all three available engines in the Jeep Cherokee allow you to bring more with you on every trip. How do these SUVs stack up in terms of technology?

Advanced Technology

Both the Jeep Cherokee and the Honda CR-V provide an interior that passengers will love. While both cabins deliver impressive features, one may catch your attention a bit more.

In the Cherokee, enjoy technology at your fingertips thanks to the Uconnect® system. When you choose the available Uconnect® 4C NAV, you receive an 8.4-inch touchscreen, which gives you access to features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. These features allow you to connect to your smartphone as you drive. This includes listening to your favorite music, audiobooks, and podcasts.

While these features are standard on the 2021 Jeep Cherokee, they are only available on different editions of the Honda CR-V. The standard touchscreen size is also smaller. The CR-V's base trim level features a 5-inch LCD display and Bluetooth®, which doesn't have all the bells and whistles you'll find in the Uconnect® 4C NAV system inside the Cherokee.

Since the Cherokee offers a more enticing standard of infotainment than the CR-V, let's look at another design aspect. How do they compare in terms of safety technology?

Cherokee vs CR-V: Advanced Safety

Drive with ease knowing both the Jeep Cherokee and the Honda CR-V come standard with an array of advanced safety and driver-assistance technologies.

In the Cherokee, you will find standard and available features that work together to keep you and your passengers safe. This list of Cherokee features includes Blind Spot and Cross Path Detection, which alerts you when another vehicle travels in your blind spots. The feature is standard in each trim of the 2021 Cherokee and is a positive design aspect of the SUV's safety design.

The 2021 Honda CR-V does include a comparable Blind Spot Information System (BSI) with Cross Traffic Monitor. This similar design feature is only available on different trims of the CR-V, but is standard on every Cherokee trim.

While both vehicles are safe options, this driver-assistive feature's standard availability in the Cherokee gives drivers an everyday edge.

Jeep Cherokee vs Honda CR-V: Which SUV Will You Choose?

Although both the 2021 Jeep Cherokee and the 2021 Honda CR-V bring many great features to the table, the Cherokee outshines the other in several categories. If you want an SUV with greater towing capacity and versatility, the Cherokee is the one to run with.
