Two Different Vehicles with the Same Goal

If you are in the market for an SUV, there are a large number of factors to consider before making a decision. From the size, fuel economy, available technology, and convenience features, to the engine size and capability, the comparisons seem endless. Today we will compare two popular models in today’s SUV lineup, the 2015 Jeep Cherokee vs 2015 Chevy Traverse. There are great features about each of these vehicles, and choosing between the larger and less efficient Chevy or the economical and rugged-looking Jeep comes down to needs and preferences.

First we’ll discuss the exterior features of these vehicles. While both vehicles feature an aggressive stance, the more curved and smooth appearance of the Chevy Traverse is less rugged looking, giving it a family friendly appearance. For those looking to seem more adventurous, the Jeep Cherokee would be the better choice. Under the hood, the Chevy Traverse has a larger and less fuel efficient engine that is necessary to carry it’s larger frame. With a smaller, more efficient engine, the Jeep Cherokee is definitely still capable of towing and handles with authority and confidence. Front wheel drive comes standard on both of these vehicles with higher trim options offering all-wheel drive for added security when driving in tough road conditions. The money saved on fuel with the Jeep Cherokee gives it an advantage in the economy category, but doesn’t sacrifice the style and excellent design that the Jeep brand is recognized for worldwide.

Which Veheicle is Right for You?

Looking to the interior of the vehicles, there are certainly differences to be found. The Jeep Cherokee is a smaller vehicle and thus comes with seating for 5 and a smaller amount of cargo space. But the Chevy’s larger interior does not add seating without consequence. With the third row seating installed, the Traverse is left with little space for cargo and luggage. The interior of the Jeep is fitted with great convenience features like speed-sensitive volume, bluetooth compatibility, and a center console LCD screen. Safety features like ParkSense and daytime running lights make sure that when you drive your Jeep Cherokee, you can see and are seen by those around you. There is truly no comparison to the excellence and reputation that comes with owning a Jeep vehicle. If you are looking for the extra space and more family friend appearance, the Chevy Traverse is probably the right car for you. However, the adventurous, affordable, and efficient 2015 Jeep Cherokee is a truly impressive vehicle with numerous features and benefits to offer the lucky driver.
