Jeep Cherokee vs Jeep Wrangler Performance

The Cherokee and Wrangler are known for their ability to tackle the toughest of terrain. What's under the hood certainly goes a long way, too. The 2.4-liter engine in the Cherokee delivers 180 horsepower and is mated to a smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission. The 3.2-liter V6, when properly equipped, is able to tow up to 4,500 pounds, and delivers 271 horsepower.

The Wrangler comes with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine which generates 270 horsepower, or the 3.6-liter V6 engine which makes 285 horsepower. Tow up to 3,500 pounds with the Wrangler, enough to bring your boat or small trailer to the lake for the weekend.

In the Cherokee, off-roading is powered by the Jeep Active Drive I 4x4 System, which includes a rear axle that engages when needed for better efficiency. Maximize your experience in the Wrangler with the Selec-Trac® 4x4 System, which can automatically switch from two- to four-wheel-drive when needed.

Safety Features

Every time you're out on the road, the reality of things is that you don't know what may happen next. You can try to predict it, but that's all you can do. It's nice to have a helping hand. Available Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection use radar-based sensors to pick up on other cars, and will let you know when a car is in your blind spot or crossing as you back up.

The optional Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking can detect if you're approaching another car too quickly. If you aren't able to react in time, brake pressure will be applied in an attempt to avoid an accident. These unique features work to protect you while the wheels are in motion.
