The Jeep Cherokee Is Appealing but How Does it Do Against Its Competitors?

The Jeep Cherokee packages ruggedness and off-roading agility into  a practical, family-oriented package, whose primary function is conquering road trips and the daily grind. It's well-equipped, reliable and dynamic, but it's also up against some notable names in the business. If you a shopping through the crossover segment, two other names are likely found sitting in conjunction with the Jeep Cherokee: the Toyota RAV4, Subaru Forester, and Ford Escape.

Choosing between the three can be daunting. That's why we at Bodwell Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram  did some research for you. We went ahead and compared the base model of all three crossovers, and what we found, as you soon will too, is that the Jeep Cherokee is one extraordinary ride.
