2017 Jeep Cherokee Calgary AB

It's clear that both the 2017 Jeep Cherokee in Calgary AB and 2017 Chevrolet Equinox are capable of offering some of the top features in the crossover market. If you're looking for a more tech savvy experience out of your vehicle, the Equinox (and its built-in 4G LTE WiFi hotspot) might be more your speed. However, for a raw, unbridled drive with interior intelligence to match, the Cherokee has just what you need. It offers an available 3.2-litre V6 engine capable of producing up to 271 horsepower; this sort of upgrade is not offered on the Equinox model. In addition, the Cherokee can tow up to 227 kilograms more than the Equinox, and its 4-star NHTSA overall rating ensures that you can relax on the Cherokee's plush cloth or leather seating as you move forward with confidence for the road ahead.
