Jeep Cherokee Engine Specs

Cherokee vs RAV4 Engine Specs & Options

When it comes to choices, it’s no surprise the Jeep Cherokee has more to offer in the engine department. While it comes standard with the 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 4-cylinder engine, the vehicle offers two additional engine options. The Toyota RAV4, on the other hand, only offers its drivers two total engine options.

When equipped with the 3.2L Pentastar® V6 engine, the Cherokee is capable of generating 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. The RAV4 merely boasts 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque with its standard engine.

The RAV4 and the Cherokee interior are each equipped with enough seating for five passengers. The Cherokee cabin opens up with 128 cubic feet, while the cabin of the RAV4 is a bit limited at 98.9 cubic feet. The Cherokee front-row passengers get 39.4 inches of headroom, while riders in the front of the RAV4 only get 37.7 inches of headroom.

The biggest difference in space is for the second-row passengers. The Cherokee includes 40.3 inches of legroom, while the RAV4 rear-seat passengers get just 37.8 inches of legroom. Taller passengers may be more comfortable riding in the back of the Jeep Cherokee.
