RAV4 vs. Cherokee: Engine Options

One of the first differences you’ll notice between the Jeep Cherokee and the RAV4 is their engine options. The Toyota RAV4 has only one engine option, the 2.5L four-cylinder engine that offers 203 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. While this is certainly a powerful engine, you have three engine options available on the Jeep Cherokee, two of which are performance engines. We’ve listed the Jeep Cherokee engine options for you below:

  • 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 Engine: 180 hp & 170 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.2L Pentastar® V6 Engine: 271 hp & 239 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L Turbo Engine: 270 hp & 295 lb-ft of torque

If you’re looking for more power and capability on your Charleston adventures, you’ll find it with one of the three engines offered in the Jeep Cherokee.

RAV4 vs. Cherokee: Off-Road Prowess

Once again, there’s a big difference between the Jeep Cherokee and the Toyota RAV4 in their off-road capability. The RAV4 comes with the TRD Off-Road system, which offers tools like Multi-terrain Select for optimal off-road performance. However, if you’re a Columbia driver that enjoys taking the road less traveled, you’ll find more off-road systems available on the Jeep Cherokee:

  • Jeep® Active Drive I 4×4 System
  • Jeep® Active Drive II 4×4 System
  • Jeep® Active Drive Lock 4×4 System

With three off-road 4×4 systems, you can customize your Jeep Cherokee to your specific adventure, whether you’re roughing it on the road less traveled or taking an easy trail to your favorite fishing spot.

RAV4 vs. Cherokee: Price & Features

One of the first things you notice when shopping for a new vehicle is the price. The Jeep Cherokee starts at $25,840 MSRP, and the Toyota RAV4 starting price is $25,950. While there’s a marginal difference between their prices, Lexington drivers will be happy to know that they’ll get more features in the Jeep Cherokee than on the Toyota RAV4. We’ve listed some of the amazing features you can find on the Jeep Cherokee below:

  • Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto®
  • Uconnect®
  • Available Heated Steering Wheel
  • Heated and Ventilated Front Seats
  • Dual-Zone Climate Control
  • Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof

  • Much more!
