Comparing The 2014 Jeep Cherokee And The 2014 Nissan Rogue

By Expert Author: Kevin Lewis

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee is arguably the most versatile crossover SUV on the market. Although the new Cherokee is engineered to deliver a very car-like driving experience, the optional 4WD system transforms it into a very capable off-road machine. Unlike some of the other gas-guzzling SUVs on the market, the new Cherokee is able to deliver exceptional fuel efficiency. The 2014 Jeep Cherokee versus the 2014 Nissan Rogue is currently one of the most competitive vehicle comparisons. Here is a rundown on how these two crossover machines stack up against each other.


Engine

In regards to power output, the Jeep Cherokee and the Nissan Rogue are very similar. The base four-cylinder engine in the Nissan Rogue is able to push out a lively 170 horsepower and 175 pound-feet or torque. The Cherokee's standard four-cylinder engine is slightly more potent with an output of 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. Unlike the Nissan Rogue, the Jeep Cherokee also offers a high-powered V-6 model that pushes out 271-horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque.


Transmission

The 2014 Nissan Rouge is powered by a continuous variable transmission. The new Jeep Cherokee takes a different approach by offering an exclusive nine-speed automatic gearbox.


Off-Road Capabilities

While both the Rogue and Cherokee come standard with a front-wheel drive setup, all-wheel drive is optional. The Nissan Rogue’s all-wheel drive system is perfectly suitable for light-duty purposes such as traveling on snow-packed roadways. On the other hand, the Jeep Cherokee can be equipped with one of the most robust four-wheel drive systems in the automotive industry. The available Cherokee Trailhawk model is specially engineered to handle the rigors of a rugged off-road trail.


Ride Quality

The Cherokee’s excellent suspension system enables it to deliver a very comfortable ride. Whether traveling on the highway or within the city, the amount of road noise is kept to a minimum. Although the Rogue’s ride quality is commendable, some drivers may find its suspension to be just a tad bit too firm.


Multimedia

The 2014 Jeep Cherokee features an 8.4-inch touch-screen interface. Its multimedia system allows the driver to easily adjust the audio settings, climate control, and navigation. The system can also be equipped with Wi-Fi connectivity if desired. The large icons make the system very simple to use. Meanwhile, the Nissan Rogue is equipped with a 7-inch infotainment screen that is also very simple to navigate. Unfortunately, the Rogue's multimedia system only has a limited number of available apps.


Fuel Economy

Both crossover SUVs are able to return great gas mileage. The Nissan Rogue's highway fuel economy rating of 33 mpg is good for a crossover SUV. With a highway fuel economy rating of 31 mpg on the highway, the Cherokee will also make a very efficient daily-driver. Even the Cherokee’s muscular V-6 engine is able to deliver nearly 30 mpg on the open road.


Safety

The safety profile of the Nissan Rogue is bolstered by a special Around View camera system that enables the driver to obtain a complete view of the vehicle's surroundings. The Rogue is also available with a hill-start assist feature that prevents the vehicle from rolling backwards on hilly streets. The Jeep Cherokee offers even more high-tech safety features. The list of optional safety equipment includes a lane-departure warning system, rear-view camera, forward-collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, and cross-traffic alert.


Towing Capacity

The Nissan Rogue is not recommended for towing very heavy loads. However, the Rogue is capable of towing loads that do not weigh in excess of 1,000 pounds. On the contrary, the V-6 version of the Cherokee has the ability to tow up to 4.500 pounds.


Overall, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee and the 2014 Nissan Rogue both have impressive capabilities for the Crossover market. But if you are looking for better off-road and towing capabilities the 2014 Jeep Cherokee may be the vehicle for you. Visit your local Jeep dealership for more information.
