2015 Honda CR-V

2015 Honda CR-V

Are you shopping for a versatile, fuel-efficient, affordable SUV? We suggest you take a look at the 2015 Honda CR-V here at Community Honda of Orland Park. The new CR-V, currently featured in our Frankfort, IL area Honda showroom, has been redesigned for 2015 and is better than ever. There just aren’t many other SUVs out there that can match up to the CR-V. A worthy contender, however, might just be the 2015 Jeep Cherokee. Let’s take a look at how these two vehicles stack up!

More Power, Better MPG

Like the 2015 Honda CR-V, the 2015 Jeep Cherokee received a makeover for 2015, and both vehicles are available with either two-wheel or all-wheel drive. Both are also powered by a 2.4L four-cylinder engine; still, the CR-V engine delivers 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque compared to the 184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque put out by the Cherokee.

If you’re looking for excellent fuel economy – and who isn’t – then you’re going to want the Honda CR-V, which offers an impressive EPA estimated 27 mpg city and 34 mpg highway* on the two-wheel drive automatic model. The Jeep Cherokee, on the other hand, is rated at 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway.

Loaded with Standard Features

The 2015 Honda CR-V comes with a wide variety of comfort, convenience, and tech features, several of which are either not available or are options that you’ll have to pay extra for with the 2015 Jeep Cherokee. Some of the standard CR-V features that you won’t find with the Cherokee include:

  • A rearview camera

  • A CD player

  • An MP3 player

  • A stereo anti-theft system


In the NHTSA crash tests the 2015 Honda CR-V scored an overall five-star rating, the highest possible. The 2015 Jeep Cherokee, meanwhile earned four stars.


It’s pretty clear why the 2015 Honda CR-V was voted Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year, it’s just a winning all around vehicle. Best of all, it is priced just right. Comparably equipped, the CR-V has a price tag of $24,200, while the 2015 Jeep Cherokee will cost you $24,580.
