Interior & Exterior Design

The compact SUV segment is teeming with head-turning standouts, the new Jeep Cherokee and Honda CR-V included. That said, the 2021 CR-V heads into the new season with no significant changes, bearing the same aesthetic as last year's model. Its sloped silhouette is certainly nothing to sneeze at, but it's bordering on dated, especially when measured against the 2021 Jeep Cherokee. The latest Jeep SUV boasts a bold and truckish frame that suits its off-road capability. Chrome grille surrounds and LED headlights punctuate the new Jeep Cherokee's striking exterior, with its base model available in seven exclusive body colours for those who value a personalized aesthetic.

There's even more to like inside the 2021 Cherokee. While the new Honda CR-V's cabin is as comfortable as it is practical, it lacks refinement. The latest Jeep Cherokee, on the other hand, offers far more than supportive seats. Its dashboard bears shades of the upscale Grand Cherokee's, making for an elegant layout and providing easy access to the vehicle's controls. Speaking of controls, the 2021 Jeep Cherokee's popular Uconnect infotainment system comes standard in a 7-inch touchscreen conveniently embedded in the dash. Not only does this Jeep fixture make easy work of staying connected on the go, it also offers a bevy of compelling amenities in its mid-level and upper trims, including leather upholstery, a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen, and a panoramic sunroof.

These two sport utility vehicles may be neck-and-neck in terms of base horsepower, but that doesn't mean their performance and capability are the same. The Honda CR-V's 1.5-litre turbocharged engine and continuously variable transmission make a nice pair, but it remains plagued by sluggish acceleration. In addition to the average automotive thrill-seeker, the 2021 CR-V also disappoints regular towers, as its meager capacity of 1500 pounds sits among the lowest in its class.

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee, by comparison, can tow up to 4000 pounds with its base 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine, and up to 4500 when packing the robust 270-horsepower V6. In addition to its attractive powertrain options, the new compact Jeep has earned much praise for its comfortable ride and reliable handling. And if you want optimal control at the wheel both on and off the beaten path, you'll find it in an all-wheel drive system, available throughout this Jeep's eight-trim lineup. For a proper feel of the new Jeep Cherokee's performance, contact Anderson Motors today and schedule a test drive.

Off-Road Capability

As far as daily driving duties go, the 2021 Honda CR-V does just about everything well by all accounts, so long as it stays on the pavement. The new Jeep Cherokee, however, boasts some of the most promising off-road capability in its class. Nowhere is this more apparent than the Trailhawk trim. Powered by a 3.2-litre V6 engine, this Cherokee model was made to hit the trails. A Jeep Active Drive Lock 4x4 system and 8.7 inches of ground clearance make stress-free work of braving rugged terrain, with skid plates for the transmission, fuel tank, underbody, and front suspension included for added protection. Lastly, the Jeep Cherokee comes with all-terrain tires for enhanced traction on rougher surfaces.
