Jeep Cherokee vs Toyota RAV4 Comparison

If you are looking for a new SUV you can take anywhere, that has space for all your gear, and gives you a comfortable ride, models like the 2020 Jeep Cherokee and Toyota RAV4 have what you want.

There are some key differences between the two, though, which our team here at Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) North Savannah shares below in our Jeep Cherokee vs. Toyota RAV4 comparison.

Keep reading to see what model you’d ultimately like to ride around Savannah, Hardeeville, and Pooler in.

Comparing the Performance of the Cherokee vs RAV4

Each SUV offers an exceptional ride as it handles all types of roads and weather conditions extremely well. Where you will notice a difference is in the power options each vehicle has.

With the 2020 Jeep Cherokee, you can choose among three different engines:

Jeep Cherokee Engine Specs



Torque (lb-ft)

2.4L Turbo



2.0L Turbo



3.2L V6



The Toyota RAV4 has only one engine option across all of its trim levels––the 2.5L 4-cylinder. This is capable of producing 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

With the additional available strength in the Cherokee, you will be able to tow up to an extra 1,000 pounds compared to the RAV4. Its towing capacity reaches 2,000 pounds, while the RAV4 can tow a maximum of 1,750 pounds.

Jeep Cherokee vs Toyota RAV4: Interior Design

Both SUVs have plenty of standard and available features inside. This includes infotainment systems that let you connect to your smartphone, and available power moonroofs that you can open to let in more sunshine on a nice afternoon.

The Cherokee, however, has more options when it comes to the specific design of your SUV. With many different trim levels, you can customize your Cherokee to match your tastes.

The RAV4 does come with some various color options for its interior accent and stitching, as well as available leather seats, but nothing that can match the luxury of the available Nappa leather-trimmed seats and wood trim in the Jeep Cherokee.

Helping You Carry Gear & Supplies

Whether you are just picking up supplies while running errands or heading out on a weekend road trip, both SUVs give you plenty of space to fit everything in the back of your vehicle.

The Cherokee helps make sure things don’t slide around, with its eight cargo tie-down loops. It also comes standard with a 12-volt cargo power outlet, which will be extremely useful during your next camping trip or football tailgate.
