Jeep Cherokee vs. Jeep Wrangler: A Jeep for Everyone

November 30th, 2015 by

Think of a Jeep and you probably imagine a rugged vehicle made to go off-road for the next adventure. Whether you choose to go off-road or stay on a traditional path, Jeep proves its versatility by offering a model designed to fit everyone. Let’s look at what two iconic models have to offer: the Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Wrangler.

Jeep Cherokee -The Sophisticated Adventurer

2016 Jeep Cherokee

If you prefer to have your adventures on the road, the Jeep Cherokee may be the model for you. Yes, it’s all Jeep with the seven-slot grille and capability, but it offers a refined appearance and luxurious comfort. Four trim levels give you custom options, including the ability to go off-road with the Trail Rated® Trailhawk® trim level.

Modern design and sleek lines complement the Jeep Cherokee with an aerodynamic build to enhance efficiency. Trapezoidal wheel arches add a muscular look to the SUV, while a rear spoiler showcases the sporty side. Enjoy adventure without sacrificing luxury with the option of cloth or leather for your cabin. Take the level of refinement up a notch with Morocco black interior contrasted by ruby red accent stitching. This compact SUV offers ample space for you and your passengers with a cargo management system to keep you organized.

Stay connected no matter where you go with the Uconnect® 8.4 NAV to help you find even the most remote destination. Bluetooth connectivity allows you to communicate hands-free, while the available built-in Wi-Fi hotspot ensures you never feel too far away from civilization.

Two engine choices give you ample power, including the award-winning 3.2L Pentastar® engine. This engine offers exceptional power and reduced emissions, delivering 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft. of torque. The second option is the 2.4L Tigershark® I4 MultiAir engine with impressive fuel efficiency. Coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission, this engine delivers 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft. of torque.

Jeep Wrangler – Get Down and Dirty

If you’re more focused on fun than luxury, the Jeep Wrangler is made for you. Featuring four trim levels and the classic Jeep seven-slot grille and round headlights, this SUV is up for any challenge. Just like the Cherokee, it includes the trapezoidal wheel arches, which are more prominently displayed by the overall design of the Wrangler.

Removable doors and top allow you to live life on the wild side. Choose either a soft top or the Freedom Top® hardtop to fit your style. The rugged design is stylish and durable with a washable cabin and drain plugs. However, it doesn’t forget about your comfort with heated front seats and your choice of cloth or leather trim materials.

No matter how far away you get, you’re still connected with the Uconnect® Radio 130, 430 or 430N, which features an easy access navigation. No adventure is complete without a soundtrack, and you can listen in style with the Alpine premium sound system. Store your gear with ample cargo space and a lockable console for when you have the top and doors off.

Just like the Cherokee, the Wrangler is Trail Rated® to go off-road. A 3.6L Pentastar® engine is built for towing or the capability of low-speed crawling on the most rugged terrain. Because you want to blaze your own trail, the Command-Trac® 4×4 system enhances your performance. This system is ideal for low range rock crawling and equips a neutral mode for flat towing. Take on even tougher challenges with the Rock-Trac® 4×4 system. This legendary system features a 4:1 low gear ratio, Brake Lock Differentials and Tru-Lok® electronic locking differentials to give you the stability, traction and control you need.
