The new Cherokee brings with it the Advanced Safety Group, an optional package that adds forward collision mitigation and much more. Let’s see how these two crossover SUVs measure up in our 2020 Chevrolet Equinox vs 2020 Jeep Cherokee comparison, and afterward, we encourage you to contact Covert Chevy of Hutto for the latest details.
Exterior – 2020 Chevrolet Equinox
The Equinox available at your local Chevy dealer serving Austin Round Rock Georgetown Hutto is built on a 107.3-inch wheelbase. It measures 183.1 inches long, 72.6 inches wide and 65.4 inches tall. Standard equipment includes 17-inch aluminum wheels, automatic headlamps and LED daytime running lamps. A manual liftgate is standard, but a powered liftgate and a hands-free liftgate are optional. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee is a tad shorter: 182.0 inches long and a 106.6-inch wheelbase. It measures 73.2 inches wide and 66.2 inches tall, so a bit taller and squatter. Standard equipment includes 17-inch aluminum wheels and automatic LED headlamps. A power liftgate is optional.
Interior – 2020 Chevrolet Equinox near Austin TX
The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox is a two-row crossover that provides seating for up to five. The total passenger volume is less than the Cherokee on paper, but this does not affect front and rear headroom and legroom, which are comparable across both models and all trims. You might expect that the Cherokee then has an advantage when it comes to cargo area, but that is not the case either. The dedicated cargo area in the Equinox measures 29.9 cubic feet and just 25.8 cubic feet in the Cherokee. When you fold the second row, you get 63.9 in the Equinox but just 54.7 in the Cherokee.
Mechanical – Chevrolet Equinox specs near Austin
The equipment under the hood is perhaps the most intriguing aspect of any 2020 Chevrolet Equinox vs 2020 Jeep Cherokee comparison. The Equinox is front-wheel drive standard, but all-wheel drive is optional at all trim levels with the exception of the custom-order L. Chevy offers two powertrains. The standard powertrain mates a six-speed automatic transmission to a 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. The optional powertrain mates a nine-speed automatic transmission to a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder that makes 252 hp and 260 lb.-ft.
Jeep offers all-wheel drive and front-wheel drive as well and at all trim levels with the exception of the Trailhawk, which is exclusively all-wheel drive. The Cherokee gives you the choice of three powertrains, all of which feature a nine-speed automatic transmission. The standard engine is a 2.4L four-cylinder that makes 180 hp and 171 lb.-ft. The options are a 3.2L V6 that makes 271 hp and 239 lb.-ft and a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder that makes 270 hp and 295 lb.-ft. The Trailhawk is notable in that it features a specialized all-wheel-drive system, an off-road-tuned suspension, all-terrain tires and so forth.
Tech – Chevrolet Equinox specs near Austin
Chevy offers one of the best standard tech packages for a small crossover. You get the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System with a 7-inch color touchscreen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and voice commands via compatible phones. Your Equinox will also feature a standard driver assistance suite with tech like automatic high beams, forward collision detection, pedestrian detection, automatic braking and lane keeping. Blind-spot monitoring is optional. The base 2020 Jeep Cherokee features the Uconnect 4 infotainment system with a 7-inch color touchscreen, a rearview camera and many of the features listed for the Equinox. The driver assistance suit, however, is optional rather than standard, and you actually need to opt for two separate groups to get all that the Equinox has.
Safety – Chevrolet Equinox specs near Austin TX
GM has always been very adamant about creating the safest environment for its drivers and passengers. That’s why the model has a 9.8 safety score, which is only a little short of being utterly perfect. Safety features include Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control and Lane Departure Warning. The Cherokee only scored nine points on its safety assortment, so we have to give the Equinox a winning score once again.
