The 2016 Jeep Cherokee

The Jeep Brand is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year so manufacturers have decided to pull out all the stops for the newest generation Cherokee. Introduced in 1980, the Cherokee has been one of the mainstays in the Jeep brand. The special 75th anniversary Cherokee edition boasts: a 75th anniversary badge, exterior bronze accents, an 8.4-inch UConnect touchscreen for the interior, and the CommandView dual-pane sunroof.

Jeep manufacturers have also made sure the driver will be very comfortable in their seat. It is made with eight different power options and a four-way lumbar. Speaking of seats, the Cherokee passenger seats have been built with the capability to lay completely flat. This increases the maximum interior space and storage.

For the interior upholstery, drivers have a choice between Morocco black cloth with ombre mesh or the light frost colored cloth and ombre combination. The Uconnect touchscreen also doubles as the monitor for the rear-view camera – a feature that helps the driver back into tight spaces.

Exterior View of the Cherokee

The limited-edition 75th anniversary Jeep Cherokee is coated in Recon Green, an exclusive color only available for this model. Drivers can also choose from other colors such as billet silver, metallic and rhino. The unique paint job goes hand in hand with the 18-inch aluminum wheels. The wheels were even made with low-gloss bronze spokes for added aesthetic effect.

The exterior fog lights and automatic headlights on this crossover are made with auto delay. These lights are packaged in conjunction with the daytime running lights to offer maximum visibility.

Finally, the deep tinted glass gives the driver and passengers added privacy. The glass is also eco-friendly as it absorbs solar energy to keep the interior of the car moderately cool.

Comparing the Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is a compact crossover that has been revamped for the 2016 model year. One of the key performance features of the CR-V is its drivability. The SUV moves like a car which makes handling a bit easier for drivers.

For this model, Honda offers six different trim levels with varying features. The standard model LX comes with a 2.4L automatic CVT engine. The four-cylinder engine is available with two and four-wheel drivetrains.

The exterior has foglights, a one-touch power moonroof, multi-reflector halogen headlights, and power side mirrors. Alternatively, interior features are made to be customized by trim level. Some of the standout features include: automatic dimming rear-view mirror, dual zone automatic climate control system, illuminated steering-wheel mounted controls, and map lights.
