2015 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2015 Toyota RAV4
When pitting the 2015 Jeep Cherokee against the 2015 Toyota RAV4, drivers in Estevan and Indian head are mostly interested in power and safety. After all, the purpose of a SUV is to provide enough power to be trail-ready while still including enough safety features to make the vehicle great for city and highway driving. Here’s why all of us at Knight Weyburn Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram know that the 2015 Cherokee is the superior choice.
More Power, Better Transmission
The 2015 Toyota RAV4 uses the same engine across all models, removing any element of driver choice. The RAV4’s 2.5L four-cylinder engine provides 176 hp and just 172 lb-ft of torque.
The 2015 Jeep Cherokee comes with a standard 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir I-4 engine, which delivers 184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque, but it can also provide the power that Estevan drivers demand. The 3.2L Pentastar VVT V6 delivers up to 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque, leaving the Toyota’s output in the dust.
Also, the Toyota RAV4 provides only a six-speed transmission, whereas the Jeep Cherokee comes with a class-exclusive nine-speed transmission to ensure that enhanced power doesn’t sacrifice exceptional fuel economy.
Advanced Safety Technology
As standard, the 2015 Jeep Cherokee provides two more airbags than the 2015 Toyota RAV4. It can also utilize a slew of safety features that go far beyond what’s provided in the RAV4, including:
- Adaptive Cruise Control: This innovative safety feature uses radar and video sensors to keep a steady distance between your car and the vehicle in front of you. Adaptive Cruise Control automatically adjusts cruising speeds to compensate for this distance, and can even bring the vehicle to a complete stop. When the car restarts, it will gently take you back to your chosen pre-set speed.
- Forward Collision Warning: Those advanced sensors also detect when you’re approaching a vehicle — or other obstacle — at an unsafe speed, even when Adaptive Cruise Control isn’t activated. The system provides both audible and visual cues to alert drivers who are in danger of a frontal collision, giving you enough time to react to the situation and avoid it.
- Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist: Many vehicles use a rearview camera to help drivers back into tight space, but the 2015 Cherokee goes the extra mile by using this Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assistance. This automatically finds a free space and uses ultrasonic sensors to help guide you in.
