The Jeep Cherokee Vs. The Competition: The Ford Escape, GMC Terrain, and Chevy Equinox

The Jeep Cherokee remains a mainstay of the SUV segment, since its inception and subsequent creation of the segment in 1974. Offering families the spacious interior capacity and comfort to travel throughout Shelbyville and Jeffersontown with confidence in inclement weather or perilous road conditions while packed with luggage and passengers, the Jeep Cherokee remains a versatile, affordable option for drivers seeking a nimble SUV capable of performing a daily carpool commute with the same composure and poise as it tackles rough off-road trails on a weekend camping excursion.

The Jeep Cherokee frequently finds itself pitted against comparable SUVs such as the Ford Escape, GMC Terrain and Chevy Equinox. However, while similar in size and structure, these vehicles hardly compare to the robust capabilities, ergonomic comfort and advanced technology featured in the Jeep Cherokee and its various trim levels.

Power and Performance

The Chevy Equinox, a frequent competitor of the Jeep Cherokee, features both gas and diesel powertrain options - a choice the Jeep Cherokee cannot match. However, of the three engines offered (a 1.5-liter turbo, 2.0-liter turbo, and 1.6-liter turbo diesel), none surpass the powerful specifications achieved by the Jeep Cherokee's 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 or 2.0-liter turbocharged engines. The Ford Escape, similarly to the Chevy Equinox, offers drivers three engine options: a 2.5-liter Duratec® engine, 1.5-liter EcoBoost® engine, and 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine - like the Chevy Equinox, none of the three engines offer specifications capable of outperforming the Jeep Cherokee's maximum 271 horsepower (3.6-liter Pentastar® V6) and maximum 295 pound-feet (2.0-liter Turbo). As GMC historically shares vehicle platforms with Chevrolet, the GMC Terrain features the same powertrain options as the Chevy Equinox, resulting in its failure to surpass the Jeep Cherokee as well.

While the GMC Terrain and Chevy Equinox both offer all-wheel drive, the Ford Escape remains the only model capable of competing with the Jeep Cherokee's 4x4 system with its intelligent four-wheel drive configuration. While the Ford Escape's intelligent four-wheel drive system provides addition confidence when navigating inclement weather, the three available Jeep® Active Drive 4x4 systems available provide significantly superior off-road performance due to their innovative braking solutions to solve open differential wheel spinning when stuck. Ultimately, the Jeep Cherokee significantly outperforms the GMC Terrain, Chevy Equinox, and Ford Escape with effortless confidence in performance and capability.

Interior and Technology

The Ford Escape provides drivers with ample cargo capacity, a power liftgate, rear back up camera, available Panoramic Vista Roof®, and various upholstery materials to suit the preferences of meticulous drivers. The Chevy Equinox offers similar amenities, also including a power liftgate, luxurious interior appointments, a Chevrolet MyLink™ infotainment system and available sunroof, while the GMC Terrain offers additional degrees of comfort and convenience through it's available leather appointments, available 8-inch GMC infotainment system, and more.

However, while these models compete amongst themselves with minutia, the Jeep Cherokee upsets the segment with its uniquely ergonomic and advanced design. Boasting an available 8.4-inch touchscreen alongside the intuitive and advanced Uconnect® 4C NAV infotainment system with various SiriusXM® systems embedded within (such as the SiriusXM Guardian™ safety and security suite), drivers receive Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration in addition to a plethora of various other applications and features. Appointed with available Natura leather and featuring an available CommandView® dual-pane panoramic sunroof, the Jeep Cherokee boasts uniquely luxurious yet convenient features to entice drivers throughout Louisville and Lyndon.
