The Honda CR-V is a family favorite in the crossover segment, but can it be dethroned? At Rochester Hills CDJR, we say yes. The Jeep Cherokee offers all the family-friendly amenities of its class while also delivering a sportier, more capable performance.
The difference in price point between the Cherokee and CR-V is very slight. A comparably equipped Honda CR-V has an MSRP of $24,045* while the Jeep Cherokee starts with a $23,595* price tag.
Currently, the Honda CR-V has not undergone any crash tests for 2017, but the 2017 Jeep Cherokee already has a 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA. Honda is known for reliability, however, so it's up to you whether you decide to factor in these integral safety ratings.
In terms of standard engines, the CR-V and Cherokee are similar in terms of power, with the exact same horsepower rating for both, at 184 hp. However, if you opt for the available more powerful engine on the Cherokee, you'll get a whopping 271 hp, in comparison to the CR-V's sole 184 hp engine.
