The Jeep Cherokee vs. The Honda CR-V: Which SUV is Right for Drivers Around Richfield Springs

The crossover SUV class has become one of the most popular categories of vehicles in recent years, and, with their mix of performance, space, and practicality, it is easy to see why. This popularity has led various car manufacturers to put their own spin on it, so now car shoppers around Utica have more options than ever before.

If you're one of the many car shoppers considering a model in this class, you should read our comparison between two superb crossover models, the Jeep Cherokee and the Honda CR-V, before deciding on the one that is right for you!


Drivers around Ilion surely know the off-road reputation that the Jeep brand has built over the years, and the Jeep Cherokee certainly has the design to conquer off-road explorations. It has a greater ground clearance and water fording ability than the Honda CR-V, so it's ready for any trail you take it on, but distinctive design facets, like the seven-slot grille, also show that the Jeep Cherokee is just as suited for Utica city streets.

Additionally, the cabin of the Jeep Cherokee remains a place passengers want to be as it has more cubic feet of room for them to stretch out in, offers higher-quality materials, like Nappa leather, and better comfort features, like heated and reclining rear seats, which they won't find in the cabin of the Honda CR-V.


This is an area where Herkimer drivers will see the Jeep Cherokee, quite literally, pull ahead of the Honda CR-V. While the CR-V is only available with a four-cylinder engine, the Jeep Cherokee lets car shoppers choose between two four-cylinders and a V6 engine, so you know it offers more horsepower and torque for those that want a rush when behind the wheel. Plus, every Cherokee comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission that delivers a better driving feel than the continuously variable transmission of the Honda CR-V.

Where will this power help? Well, we've already established that the Jeep Cherokee is the more off-road capable of the two, and part of that comes from the additional power, but drivers will also find that the Jeep Cherokee can tow trailers three times the weight, 4,500 pounds, of what the Honda CR-V can, 1,500 pounds. If you have a boat or horse trailer, the Jeep Cherokee is the clear choice between these crossovers.

Safety and Technology

The Jeep Cherokee is one of the toughest crossovers available to car shoppers, but, with tech spread throughout, it is also one of the smartest. It comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility that will have drivers using the mobile apps they love with much less hassle than the Honda CR-V, which doesn't come with such features standard. Plus, the Jeep Cherokee offers a more diverse package of charging options, like a 115-volt outlet, than the Honda CR-V does.

New Hartford, NY drivers will also find more convenient driver-assist tech in the Jeep Cherokee, which may reduce your chances of being involved in an accident. While both models offer safety features like blind spot monitoring and forward collision warning, only the Jeep Cherokee is available with Hill Descent Control and Park Assist, which will help with going down slippery hills in the winter and trickier parking jobs, respectively.
