Towing Capacity 2014 Jeep Cherokee vs. Honda CR-V
If you want more from a crossover than a glorified sedan, there are certain things you’ll want to look for. Sure, we want something that performs well on the road for daily driving, but you should ask yourself, “What else does it do?” When comparing the 2014 Jeep Cherokee to the popular Honda CR-V, it becomes clear that the Cherokee has one particular strength that’s head and shoulders above the CR-V: towing capacity.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee’s most basic model offers a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs – that’s enough for a motorcycle. With the CR-V’s 1,500-lb. towing capacity, you aren’t able to haul much more than a small trailer – and that’s where it maxes out. With the Cherokee, you can choose the available 3.2L V6 engine and Trailer Tow Group to up your capacity to a best-in-class 4,500 lbs. That’s enough for a medium trailer or even a medium-sized boat. With the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, you’ve got the options you want.
