Jeep Cherokee vs. Chevrolet Equinox

  • The 2019 Equinox offers all-wheel drive, which is a nice way to remain in control of your vehicle, but the 2019 Cherokee offers four-wheel drive.
  • The base engines for these SUVs vary, with the Cherokee providing more horsepower than the Equinox, plus up to 31 mpg highway.
  • The 2019 Jeep Cherokee will give you Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but the Equinox doesn't offer this feature on its base trim level.
  • The base trim 4x4 Cherokee offers Rear Cross Path Detection and Blind Spot Monitoring, while the 2019 Equinox's base AWD trim doesn't provide these features. For these features, the Equinox will make you spend nearly $10,000 more than the Cherokee.
  • The Chevrolet Infotainment System is what you get in the 2019 Equinox, and in the Cherokee, you get access to the latest iteration of the Uconnect System that has been around for a lot longer.

Jeep Cherokee vs. Ford Escape

  • A 2019 Cherokee gives you access to a 4x4 drivetrain on every trim level, while the 2019 Escape only gives you 4WD but only on select trims, meaning you will have to spend a lot more to equip this feature.
  • With the Jeep brand, you can expect to find the powerful 3.2-liter Pentastar engine, but since this is exclusive to the Cherokee, you won't have it with the Ford Escape.
  • Is the Escape trail-rated? The 2019 Cherokee Trailhawk is trail rated and lets you enjoy the Selec-Terrain Management System for optimum control, and since this is an exclusive feature to the Jeep brand, you won't find it with a Ford model.
  • In the Cherokee, you will get more fuel efficiency than you will in the Escape, especially on the 4WD engines.
  • If you want a larger touchscreen, the 2019 Cherokee is your best bet because it offers more than the 2019 Escape's touchscreen can.
