Shopping for a new car is both easier than ever and somehow more complex than ever. Thanks to online tools like our trade evaluator and vehicle reviews, you can head to the dealership with more information on potential models than ever. However, with all the tools and new models available, narrowing down your choice can seem like a daunting task. That’s why here at Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we’re helping drivers in the Brick, Freehold, and Toms River, NJ area with their search.

We’ve decided to see how one of our most popular models holds up against the competition by pitting the 2019 Jeep Cherokee VS. The competition. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is one of our favorite models and for a good reason.

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee comes in five trim levels: the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Latitude, Latitude Plus, Limited, Trailhawk, and Overland. When comparing the Jeep Cherokee Latitude Plus, the trim level most drivers use as the entry point, the Jeep SUV has a clear advantage over five competitors at similar trim levels. A 2.0-liter Turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque makes it considerably more powerful than other options like the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Escape, and Subaru Forester. It’s also the only SUV to offer FWD, AWD, and 4WD with low-range.

The Jeep Cherokee also leads the pack in towing with a maximum of 4,000 pounds, depending on trim and configuration. As for comfort and technology, the only real competitor is the Subaru Forester. However, thanks to the intuitive Uconnect infotainment system on the Jeep Cherokee, it’s hard to find something you won’t love.
