Drivers who are in the market for a full-size SUV often look toward Jeep, but when you compare it to the 2016 Honda CR-V, there’s quite a lot that you won’t get for the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee price. Take a look at how these two SUVs compare in terms of pricing and special features, and you’ll see why smart drivers are continuing to choose Honda for their families.
Getting More for Less
The 2016 CR-V 2WD LX is priced at just $23,745 MSRP.* What’s more: The price stays comparatively low even on this Honda’s higher end trims: their 2WD Touring model is priced at $32,095 MSRP.* Looking at the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee, there’s really no comparison. At $29,995 MSRP, the Grand Cherokee’s base trim will cost you far more than the most similar trim on the CR-V. The Jeep’s higher-end trims are available for between $49,795 MSRP and $65,695 MSRP, but even for that price they still can’t measure up to what the CR-V has to offer.
The Features You Need in an SUV
The engineers at Honda know how to build a vehicle that suits families and drivers alike. Once you see the features that they’re able to pack into the 2016 Honda CR-V, you’ll never look at SUVs the same way again. Compared to the CR-V, the 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee ends up looking quite spare!
- Exterior Features. In the EX trim and above, the Honda CR-V comes equipped with a keyless Smart Entry system and, in the Touring trim, it also possesses a power tailgate that can be operated with a single touch. These simple amenities make it a perfect option for any family on the move!
- Connectivity. Every CR-V is outfitted with a 7-inch display audio touchscreen that makes it a breeze to manage all of your media. With the steering wheel–mounted controls and Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, you’ll experience greater freedom even as you nip dangerous distractions in the bud.
- Fuel Economy and Performance. If you’re not already convinced that the CR-V is a better buy, just keep in mind that the engineers at Honda have done everything they can to make you one of the most efficient vehicles available today. The CR-V gets better mileage in the city than the Jeep Grand Cherokee gets on the highway! The Grand Cherokee standard Laredo trim gets 22 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, while the Honda CR-V blows it away with its EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway in 2WD models.**
