2019 Jeep Cherokee vs 2019 Honda CR-V near Victoria, TX

If you've been looking for a crossover SUV then let us recommend either the 2019 Jeep Cherokee or the 2019 Honda CR-V. Both are good options that offer choices between different engines and trim levels so that the vehicle you drive off the lot with is a vehicle fit especially for you. But if you want it narrowed down even further, then follow along as we compare the how much choice each of these vehicles really gives you

2019 Jeep Cherokee Power & Handling

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is an SUV that likes to have options, which it makes abundantly clear with its selection of engine options that are increasingly impressive and capable. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This engine is also equipped with stop-start technology to better optimize fuel economy while minimizing emissions. Also available is a 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 engine that is also equipped with stop-start technology, delivers 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque, and offers the best-in-class towing capacity of 4,500 pounds. Lastly is a fuel-efficient 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir2 engine that's still equipped with engine stop-start while maintaining 180 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. To improve even further upon these engines, the Cherokee comes with an enhanced 9-speed automatic transmission and Selec-Terrain traction control.

2019 Honda CR-V Power & Handling

The 2019 Honda CR-V has fewer options to choose between when it comes to engines, just two in fact that are actually based on trim and don't have so much difference between them. The standard engine available for the CR-V is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, running on 184 horsepower, 180 pound-feet of torque, and is paired with front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission. At the EX trim level, the engine is upgraded to a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 190 horsepower and 179 pound-feet of torque. Not to say that either of these engines is lacking, but the lack of real choice keeps them from seeming too exciting.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Features & Design

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee offers five trim levels to best meet your specific needs. The base-level Latitude trim already comes fairly well equipped with folding rear and front passenger seats, heated side mirrors, automatic headlights, 17-inch wheels, and a 7-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration, rear view camera, USB port, Bluetooth, and a 6-speaker audio system. The Latitude Plus trim adds more amenities such as extra USB ports, keyless entry and ignition, satellite radio, leather inserts, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and power-adjustable driver's seat. Stepping up to the Limited trim upgrades to an 8.4-inch touchscreen and driver information display while adding a heated steering wheel, 18-inch wheels, heated front seats, blind-spot monitoring, leather upholstery, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear parking sensors. The top-of-the-line Overland trim upgrades the infotainment system further with HD radio, a navigation system, and a nine-speaker audio system and also adds ventilated front seats, 18-inch wheels, wood steering-wheel inserts, cornering lights, power-adjustable seats, sound-deadening windows, and a sliding rear seat. For those interested in taking their Cherokee off-road, there's the specialized Trailhawk trim that comes equipped with wider 17-inch wheels with all-terrain tires, off-road suspension tuning, a unique exterior trim, increased ground clearance, tow hooks, locking rear differential, skid plates, and hill ascent and descent control.

2019 Honda CR-V Features & Design

The Honda CR-V comes in with one less trim option than the Cherokee at only four. And while each does offer more than the last, the increase in features at each trim level isn't quite as substantial as the Cherokee's. The CR-V's base trim, the LX, comes with a height-adjustable driver seat, LED running lights, cruise control, climate control, 17-inch wheels, and a 5-inch color display with a rear view camera, USB ports, Bluetooth, and a four-speaker audio system. The EX trim gains heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, a sunroof, keyless start and entry, rear privacy glass, heated mirrors, fog lights, and 18-inch wheels. The EX-L trim gains HD radio, power lift gate, eight-speaker audio system, auto-dimming mirror, leather upholstery, and a power-adjustable passenger set. For the top of the CR-V's line, the Touring trim sports a navigation system, LED headlights, ambient interior lighting, dual chrome exhaust tips, automatic wipers, and roof rails.

Conclusions

While both the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and Honda CR-V have their own merits, in this SUV showdown the Cherokee takes the cake. The Cherokee simply has more options in both power and styling, allowing you to choose the engine and stable of features that work best for you. So if you've been looking for a crossover SUV with a variety of powerful engines and decked-out trims to choose from, our best recommendation is the 2019 Jeep Cherokee.
