When it comes to engine power and fuel economy, the 2017 Cherokee and 2017 Equinox both have quite a bit to offer. Both SUVs have a standard four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. Both put down just over 180 horsepower and offer just over 170 lb-ft of torque, achieving up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway. The Cherokee's naturally more athletic build, and the nine-speed automatic transmission gives it a responsive and fun-to-drive feel. Both the Chevy and the Jeep are available with all-wheel drive, but only the 2017 Cherokee has standard parking assist technology on the base trim level.
Interior technology features really take your daily commute to the next level, and both the Cherokee and the Equinox come loaded with plenty of options. Each SUV has a standard six-speaker audio system with Bluetooth compatibility for making hands-free phone calls or playing your favorite tunes. Both the Chevy and the Cherokee have standard seating for up to five passengers, but only the Jeep comes with heated front seats for added comfort when driving in the winter.
