Not all four-cylinder engines are the same, and there is proof in this comparison of the 2.4-liter under the hood of the 2017 Cherokee and the 2.0-liter that comes with the Outlander Sport. The Cherokee's engine puts down an impressive 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque, while the Outlander Sport comes out at only 148 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque. Both vehicles manage to achieve over 20 mpg in the city, but the Jeep Cherokee's extra potential mile per gallon gives it a small advantage in that arena.
When it comes to interior features, both the 2017 Cherokee and the 2017 Outlander Sport have plenty to offer. Standard audio systems, Bluetooth compatibility and multiple interior 12V DC power outlets add convenience to every drive. The 2017 Cherokee comes out ahead with a standard digital driver information center, heated front seats, and ParkSense parking assist technology on the base trim without added cost.
