How Far Will the 2016 Jeep Cherokee MPG Ratings Take You?

August 15th, 2016 by

Honda CR-VThe 2016 Honda CR-V is a crossover that Michigan drivers can count on for high performance and ample efficiency. The 2016 Jeep Cherokee is in direct competition with the CR-V and may be similar on the surface, but it’s the differences inside that really set these two vehicles apart.

Price

For many car buyers, the decision to purchase a vehicle comes down to price, plain and simple. The Honda CR-V AWD LX is priced at $25,145 MSRP,* while the Jeep Cherokee Sport starts at $23,495. At face value, the Cherokee will be cheaper, but let’s take a closer look at what sets these two vehicles apart.

Performance and Efficiency

Both the CR-V and the Cherokee are equipped with 2.4L 4-cylinder engines, with the CR-V’s engine putting out 185 hp and the Cherokee a slightly lower 184 hp. The Cherokee offers 171 lb-ft of torque, but the CR-V can leverage 181 lb-ft, a step above. CR-V AWD models offer up an EPA-estimated 25 city mpg,** while the Cherokee gets only 22 city mpg, making the Honda CR-V a more attractive option for car buyers looking to save at the gas pump.

Features

While the CR-V and the Cherokee may be similar when it comes to performance, standard features is where the CR-V’s advantages become really clear. It’s packed with technology and comfort and convenience luxuries that the Cherokee can’t hold a candle to.

  • Added safety: A rearview camera on the CR-V gives you the extra eyes you need when navigating out of tight spots.
  • Entertainment variety: A CD/MP3 player gives you more options for music when you’re on the road. An MP3 player is only available as an add-on to the Cherokee.
  • Advanced lighting: Automat headlights and fog lights show you what you’re missing with the added convenience of being on when you need them in dark conditions.
