Serving Commerce, GA

Small-to-midsize SUVs can be found everywhere in society today as these automobiles are dominating the streets. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee and 2020 Chevy Equinox are the crop creams when it comes to this category. Consumers can choose from numerous trims for both SUVs. In addition to that, consumers can also expect a range of advanced technologies and other practical amenities. Let's compare and contrast these two machines from the inside-out.

Exterior

The exterior of the 2020 Jeep Cherokee is smooth and sultry. The SUV's facade doesn't feel overdone, and it doesn't possess any unnecessary characteristics. There are well-sculpted contours along with the door panels as well as on the hood. The brand's seven-slot grille is prominently displayed at the front, and the rear-end has good muscularity. Stunning aesthetics and impressive aerodynamics are the final results. This exterior also has Daytime Running lights that are built into the front LEDs. Dark cladding wraps around the lower body with precision. The 2020 Chevy Equinox is designed with striking lines and sharp edges. The exterior of this SUV is about as modern as it gets. Bold contours will span the entire length of the body, and the vehicle's hood is well sculpted as it flows down into an elegantly styled fascia. Aerodynamics could be a bit better, but consumers can choose from multiple colors. This includes silver ice, midnight blue, and cajun red.

Performance

The 2020 Cherokee will allow the driver to push it to the limit, whether on the highway or off-road surfaces. Its high wheel arches and high ground clearance allows you to drive over rocky terrain with confidence. Jeep offers three different versions of four-wheel drive. Three powertrains are available, including a turbocharged engine that's 2.0 liters. This engine can tow 4,000 pounds and delivers 270 horsepower. There is also a 271-horsepower V6 that can tow 4,500 pounds and a 2.4-liter engine that gets 31 mpg on the highway. The 2020 Equinox falls short for off-road performance, but it delivers on the highway. Its Switchable all-wheel drive system will adapt to your driving environment by switching from front-wheel drive to all-wheel drive. The SUV's 2.0-liter engine can deliver 260 pound-feet. This 252-horsepower engine will tow 3,500 pounds. There's also a 1.5-liter engine that's turbocharged to produce on-demand acceleration while providing good fuel efficiency.

Features

The Cherokee comes packed with 80 safety features, from radar-based sensors to advanced airbags. High-strength materials are used for their rigid body. Five people can sit in the cabin, and the rear seats are configurable. Other features included are drag-and-drop navigation, 4G LTE Wi-Fi, and smartphone integration. The Equinox is loaded with tech components, including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi. There's at least 63.9 cubic-feet of cargo space as well as seating for five. There are also three rows of seats, but its interior lacks a high-end feel.

All in all, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee takes the win. This SUV dominates its competitor in just about every category, but both vehicles are great choices.
