2017 Jeep Cherokee vs 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander

In many ways, it is unfair to compare anything to the 2017 Jeep Cherokee. At Caledon Chrysler, we can't think of anything better than combining the heritage of Jeep and with a high-quality and affordable SUV. Despite this, we still believe you should get to know what other companies are attempting to put up against the 2017 Jeep Cherokee. That's why we are going to "compare" the 2017 Jeep Cherokee and the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander for you today.



2017 Jeep Cherokee

The first thing that makes to the 2017 Jeep Cherokee stand out is its versatility. This dynamic crossover is available in eight trims, forward and four-wheel drive, and nine bold exterior colours. Powering the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is a choice of two exciting engines. Most trims come standard with a 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir I-4 engine with 184 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 171 lb-ft of torque at 4,600 rpm. If you are looking for more power we suggest checking out the available 3.2-liter Pentastar VVT V6 Stop/Start technology that kicks out 271 horsepower and 239 lb.-ft. of torque.  When you pair this powerhouse with a segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission you can up fuel economy as good as 7.8 L/100 km highway and 11.0 L/100 km city.*



Your ride will be smooth and predictable whether you travel off-road trails or smooth city streets, thanks to a strong lightweight suspension tuned to achieve excellent handling with maximum comfort, Selec-Terrain Traction Management System, and three available rugged 4x4 systems. On top of this performance, taking the boat to the lake will be breeze thanks to the Best-in-Class towing capacity of up to 2,041 kg (4,500 lb).


The 2017 Jeep Cherokee is also extremely safe and comfortable due to a number of standard and available features including:

  • 10 standard air bags
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking
  • Blind-Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross-Path Detection
  • Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist



And don't worry about staying connected or entertained. Many 2017 Jeep Cherokee trims come with a Uconnect 8.4 multimedia centre that features the largest-in-class touchscreen as well as customizable Drag and Drop menu bar, Do Not Disturb mode, SiriusXM Tune Start, and Siri Eyes Free for the iPhone 4S and later. It's hard to imagine a more dominant SUV at such an amazing price point.


2017 Mitsubishi Outlander

Available in four trim levels, two and all-wheel drive, and seven exterior colors, the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander gives you a choice of two different engines. You start with the standard 2.4-liter MIVEC DOHC 16-valve inline four-cylinder engine that produces 166 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 162 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,200 rpm. No matter which engine you get it will feature an aluminum block and cylinder heads and a Continuously Variable Transmission.


The 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander features  Hill Start Assist, anti-lock braking with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist, Active Stability Control, and a seven-airbag system that includes front seat-mounted side airbags and advanced dual-stage SRS front airbags.



To keep you entertained and connected, the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander comes a standard hands-free Link System with 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth technology, and steering wheel controls. You also get a rearview camera and digital HD radio standard.




After looking over both vehicles, it should be quite clear that the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is superior in a number of ways. The 2017 Jeep Cherokee from Caledon Chrysler comes in more trim levels and colours, has a more powerful standard engine, more airbags, and a larger touchscreen. Of course, the only way to really understand how great the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is, you need to take one for test drive, so schedule yours today!
