2015 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2015 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Cherokee than in the Toyota RAV4. The Toyota RAV4 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Cherokee, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Cherokee as you will with the Toyota RAV4, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Jeep Cherokee or the Toyota RAV4, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The Jeep Cherokee is about the same width as the Toyota RAV4. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Cherokee takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota RAV4.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Cherokee and the Toyota RAV4 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Jeep Cherokee has a larger turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Cherokee and the Toyota RAV4. The Jeep Cherokee has significantly less cargo capacity than the Toyota RAV4.

Warranty
The Jeep Cherokee comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota RAV4.
