When you want to get out for adventures, you need a vehicle capable of handling the demands, whether on-road or off-road. You want something with engine power, something that has the ability to handle any terrain and weather, and something that's designed to be safe. The 2021 Jeep Cherokee and Nissan Rogue have you covered as popular SUV choices in these areas, but which is right for you?

In this comparison, we help to answer that question. At Ray Price Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we're taking a closer look at the Jeep Cherokee vs. Nissan Rogue to see how the two vehicles stack up against each other. See which one you should take on the road around Mount Pocono, Tobyhanna, Scranton, Stroudsburg, and East Stroudsburg, PA.

Jeep Cherokee vs Nissan Rogue: Performance

The best place to begin when looking at these vehicles is the engines they have under the hood. The engine can provide you with the power necessary to make your travels in any condition much easier.

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee comes standard with a 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine that gets 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. The Nissan Rogue also uses a 4-cylinder engine standard, and produces over 180 horsepower and over 170 lb-ft of torque as well.

However, one of the key differences is the options you have in the Cherokee. There are also two available engine options that can expand on the power you have. There's the 3.2L Pentastar® V6 engine that gets 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque while offering a maximum towing capacity of 4,500 pounds. There's also the 2.0L Turbo engine that gets 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.

The Nissan Rogue doesn't have additional engine options and only provides a maximum towing capacity of 1,350 pounds.

Jeep Cherokee vs Nissan Rogue: Handling Capabilities

Driving through mountainous terrain and in all weather conditions can require a ride that's built for anything you may encounter on the road or in the elements. That's why drivers choose an SUV that's designed with all-weather handling in mind.

Both vehicles offer systems that distribute torque accordingly based on your driving conditions, a 4-wheel drive system (4WD) in the Jeep Cherokee, and an all-wheel drive (AWD) system in the Nissan Rogue.

The Jeep Cherokee goes one step further, putting more control in the driver's hands with the available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System. This allows you to choose from several settings that optimize your handling ability based on the conditions. Settings include snow, auto, sport, sand, mud, and rock. The Nissan doesn't provide a similar system, which can prevent your vehicle from handling with the same precision as the Jeep Cherokee.

2021 Jeep Cherokee vs Nissan Rogue: Safety

When it comes to adventures, you can never be too safe on the road. Both the Jeep Cherokee and Nissan Rogue are modern vehicles that come with the latest technology that keeps your safety in mind.

Both SUVs include Blind Spot Monitoring, Forward Collision Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control, as well as a standard rear back-up camera.

The Jeep Cherokee also offers features like Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist, helping you to identify parking spots and using sensors to steer your vehicle automatically into the spot. The Rogue doesn't possess a similar feature.

Jeep Cherokee vs Nissan Rogue: Which Should You Choose?

Now that you know more about the Jeep Cherokee and the Nissan Rogue, and how they compare, it's time for you to choose which is right for you. Both SUVs offer a lot of great qualities to drivers, so your choice should be based on what you value most as a driver.
