There are plenty of models available in the compact crossover segment. Two crossovers that offer attractive driving and interior space are in this 2018 Jeep Cherokee vs 2018 Chevy Equinox comparison. Each of these models offers compact dimensions that are easy to maneuver through the city. However, when it comes to heading into the country, the 2018 Chevy Equinox may not offer the same capability as the Jeep model.

Towing and Off-Roading on the 2018 Jeep Cherokee

While the 2018 Chevy Equinox does a perfectly acceptable job getting drivers from point A to point B, those craving adventure, off-roading, and weekend versatility may be more intrigued by the options on the 2018 Jeep Cherokee. This compact crossover offers a unique trim designed for off-roading adventures: the Trailhawk. This model includes off-road advantages like rear skid plates, all-terrain tires, and an elite 4x4 system. It also delivers on-road value thanks to newly standard Blind-Spot Monitoring, Cross Path Detection, ParkSense Rear Backup Warning, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Even better, when equipped with its 3.2-liter V-6 engine, the Jeep compact crossover offers the best towing in this 2018 Jeep Cherokee vs 2018 Chevy Equinox comparison. It offers up to 4,500 pounds of trailering when properly equipped, while the 2018 Chevy Equinox equipped with its 2.0-liter turbocharged engine can offer only 3,500 pounds of towing. We like the off-road potential and premium towing of the 2018 Jeep Cherokee. To learn more about this model in the Twin Cities area, contact our dealership today!
