2021 Jeep Cherokee vs 2021 Chevy Equinox

Midsize SUVs offer the perfect balance of space and convenience. The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and 2021 Jeep Cherokee are two similar-size SUVs that have been around for a while. However, that is where the similarities end for these two. This is why it isn’t easy to figure out which one is best for you. So let’s see what they had to say about each one, starting with the Jeep Cherokee.

2021 Jeep Cherokee Power

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee offers drivers three engines. The standard engine is the efficient 2.4-liter inline-4 that comes with 180 horsepower. If drivers need more power, the 3.2-liter V6 with 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque won the Cherokee a best-in-class tow rating. Of course, Jeep was thinking of the speed racers when they made the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 that delivers an impressive 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox Power

The Chevy Equinox comes with one engine, a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 that offers a respectable 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. The Equinox offers a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but buyers can upgrade to all-wheel drive for better traction. In addition, Chevy gave Equinox a 6-speed automatic transmission. There is an idle start/stop system. However, you cannot shut it off.

2021 Jeep Cherokee Features

The 2021 Cherokee’s interior is prepared for every weather climate with heated and ventilated front seats. These front seats add quick warmth on cold days, while available ventilated front seats emit cool air when the temperature rises. The heated steering wheel will keep your hands warm on cold days. The CommandView Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof is a road trip must-have. It lets you and your passengers take in some fresh-air fun. You can crank up your music with the Alpine Premium Audio System featuring a 12-channel 506-watt amplifier, nine speakers, and an 8-inch subwoofer for clear, fine-tuned sound.

2021 Chevrolet Equinox Features

The Equinox offers a useful and roomy 5-passenger cabin. The front seats are supportive and comfortable enough for long trips. Most Equinox models are equipped with cloth seating. You have to jump up to the top-of-the-line Premier trim levels to get leather. The Equinox provides decent cargo capacity, if not the best in its class. With the rear seats folded, you get 63.9 cubic feet of storage. The sub-floor storage in the rear cargo is nice for hiding smaller objects and keeping them out of sight. The power liftgate is a covenant feature that offers programmable height and is offered on higher trims.
