2021 Jeep Cherokee -vs- 2021 Toyota RAV4

How the 2021 Jeep Cherokee Fares Against the 2021 Toyota RAV4

As Vicksburg shoppers contemplate their next adventurous SUV to buy, we encourage them to take a peek at our collection of new Jeep Cherokee SUVs at Blackburn Motor Company.

Our Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Nissan dealership in Vicksburg, MS sells a variety of 2021 Jeep Cherokee SUVs ready to serve your outdoor exploits, but drivers who do their due diligence may be considering one of its crossover competitors like the 2021 Toyota RAV4. That's what Blackburn Motor Company wants to hear! We want shoppers from Jackson and the Mississippi River region to make an informed purchase before driving a new Jeep SUV. That's why we're breaking down how the new Jeep Cherokee stacks up against the Toyota RAV4.


Jeep Cherokee vs. Toyota RAV4 Performance

The Toyota RAV4 doesn't turn heads in performance, as the compact SUV earns 28/35 (city/highway) miles per gallon and only offers one powertrain - a 2.5-liter inline-4 generating 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Vicksburg, MS motorists get more robust performance from the new Jeep Cherokee, which earns 23/31 miles per gallon and offers a superior 271 horsepower and a trio of the following powertrains:

  • 2.4-liter inline-4: 180 horsepower: 171 pound-feet of torque, 22/31 miles per gallon
  • 3.2-liter V6: 271 horsepower, 239 pound-feet of torque
  • 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4: 270 horsepower, 295 pound-feet of torque

Jeep Cherokee vs. Toyota RAV4 Safety & Technology

The new Jeep Cherokee has a standard blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert along with the following safety features:

  • Forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking
  • Lane departure warning with lane-keep assist
  • Rear parking sensors
  • Rain-sensing wipers

The Toyota RAV4 does offer the renowned Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.0 with an array of driver assists as standard, but blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert isn't a standard feature until the second trim.

For technology, the Jeep Cherokee is equipped with the standard Uconnect® 4 infotainment system and a 7-inch touchscreen interface paired with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ and a six-speaker audio system. The Toyota RAV4 also has a standard 7-inch touchscreen with the same compatibility.


Jeep Cherokee vs. Toyota RAV4 Interior

With 49.9 inches, the Jeep Cherokee edges the Toyota RAV4's 47.7 inches of rear hip room. The Jeep SUV also offers more rear legroom at 40.3 inches compared to the Toyota's 37.8 inches. The Jeep Cherokee offers 27.6 cubic feet of storage, which expands to 54.7 cubic feet with the second-row seats folded down. The Toyota RAV4 provides 37.5 cubic feet and 70 cubic feet total, but it doesn't have a mid-level trim like the Jeep Cherokee Latitude Lux, offering Nappa leather upholstery and other interior amenities.

How the New Jeep Cherokee Jolts Past the Toyota RAV4
