2020 Jeep Cherokee vs 2020 Toyota RAV4

Serving Merrillville, IN

In 2020, the Jeep Cherokee carries over mostly unchanged from the 2019 model year. However, that’s no issue for consumers, as the Jeep Cherokee is still considered to be one of the most sought-after vehicles for anyone wanting a rugged and durable off-road car. This year, the Jeep Cherokee continues to provide exceptional off-road capabilities, with its unique exterior design elements and sophisticated mechanical configuration, which includes several engine choices to help ensure the power and performance you need in all conditions. The Jeep Cherokee also has a luxurious cabin filled with many creature comforts and amenities. One SUV that the Jeep Cherokee rivals is the 2020 Toyota RAV4. Even though the RAV4 gets some updates for the latest model year, it lacks the same performance credentials that you’ll find with the Jeep Cherokee. Furthermore, it doesn’t have the same precise steering and handling system, and its seats are less comfortable, making the Cherokee the top choice for all-terrain driving and more comfortable road trips.


The 2020 Jeep Cherokee has several engines available to meet your performance and handling demands. At a minimum, the 2020 Cherokee is equipped with a four-cylinder engine that has a 2.4L capacity. With a power output of 180 HP and a commendable 171 LB-FT in torque output, this engine supplies plenty of power. However, those looking for more power and speed can upgrade to one of two additional engines. The first is a 3.2L with six cylinders. This engine’s power output increases to 271 HP. It delivers 239 LB-FT of torque as well. The third engine, which is also a gasoline-based engine, gets a boost of turbo power for a more exhilarating ride. This engine has a higher torque output of 295 LB-FT. It produces 270 HP. In contrast, there is only one engine available for the 2020 Toyota RAV4, which is a 2.5L that produces 203 HP at most and 184 LB-FT of torque.


Despite its athletic credentials, the 2020 Cherokee has a sleek, polished, and contemporary appearance. Many features come standard at the base level, including prominent automatic LED lights that can be upgraded to more powerful xenon lights for added visibility and intrigue. The base trim comes standard with 17-inch wheels that can be upgraded to different designs if you prefer a more original look. Roof rails provide additional cargo capacity and an adventure-ready look. The 2020 Toyota RAV4 lacks amenities such as tow hooks and skid plates that give the Cherokee its off-road capabilities.


Several features are standard from the base level up with the 2020 Cherokee. The base trim gets a USB charging port, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a handful of driver-assist safety aids. Bluetooth, a backup camera, and a stereo system are also included. Leather seats, a sunroof, and navigation are added to the higher-end trims. The RAV4, in contrast, has less comfortable seats and offers fewer standard amenities.
