2021 Jeep Cherokee Features & Design

Drivers have five Cherokee trim levels to pick from, one of which is brand new for the 2021 model year. Standard features include alloy wheels, split-folding rear seats, a 6-speaker sound system, a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple and Android smartphone integration, the Selec-Terrain management system, roof rails, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. There are also a number of standard safety features including lane keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and forward collision mitigation. The upper features come with even more features like remote start, more USB ports, heated front seats, leather upholstery, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, all-terrain tires, skid plates, a power liftgate, a panoramic sunroof, and so much more!

2021 Toyota RAV4 Features & Design

There are six trim levels offered for the Toyota RAV4. The base LE trim comes outfitted with features like LED headlights, a 6-speaker sound system, Apple and Android smartphone integration, a 7-inch touchscreen, and the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0. Features included in the safety suite are a traffic sign reader, adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, and a lane keeping system. The upper trims add to the LE with features like a sunroof, a slight raised suspension, keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone automatic climate control, more USB ports, fender flares, an 8-inch touchscreen, and all-terrain tires.


It is easy to see that you should be driving home behind the wheel of a 2021 Jeep Cherokee and not an RAV4. While the Toyota SUV is good looking it just can’t keep up with the power or capabilities that the Cherokee has to offer or the features found within the five trims.
