Toyota RAV4 vs. Jeep Cherokee: Cape Cod Edition.

If you're trying to decide between the iconic Jeep Cherokee midsize SUV and the Toyota RAV4 crossover, you may have noticed that they offer many similarities: comparable fuel economy, feature listings, safety features, etc.

But when it really comes down to it, the stunning and fun-to-drive Jeep Cherokee is the better value, offering drivers in the greater Cape Cod area a lower starting price, more bang for your buck, and legendary Jeep capability. Add in Premier Cape Cod's Pure Price promise, and you could get into a new Jeep Cherokee for less than you might think.


2016 Jeep Cherokee Engine

Power & Performance

Power for the Jeep Cherokee comes from one of two powertrain options: a 2.4-liter four-Cylinder MultiAirĀ® engine with 184 horsepower, or a mammoth 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 engine with 271 horsepower that offers a tow rating of up to 4,500 pounds.

The Toyota RAV4 is equipped with only one engine--a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine--with just 176 horsepower, and a max tow rating of just 1,500 pounds. Point goes to the Jeep Cherokee.

2016 Jeep Cherokee


While both SUVs offer available four-wheel drive functionality, only the Jeep Cherokee offers the legendary prowess of an Active Drive II 4x4--well-recognized as one of the best-performing and most rugged four-by-four systems in the world.

Furthermore, the Jeep Cherokee offers a whopping 8.7 inches of ground clearance, compared to the RAV4's mere 6.3 inches.

An additional SD card allows you to insert a memory card for even more media options.

The Toyota RAV4's Entune Multimedia is limited to just radio/CD/Bluetooth.
