Safety Battle: 2021 Jeep Cherokee vs 2021 Chevy Equinox in Chilliwack, BC

May 24,2022

When it comes to standard safety systems, it's hard to beat the new 2021 Jeep Cherokee. The 2021 Chevy Equinox certainly tries, but it ultimately comes up short.   Both compact SUVs are equipped with forward collision warning. Detecting oncoming obstacles and alerting you to the potential threat is what this driving aid does. If no action is taken to avoid a crash, the feature will activate the emergency brakes.   You will also find lane-departure assist on each vehicle. Keeping tabs on the lines in the road, it will let you know if you begin to drift. It can also guide you back to the centre if necessary.   Where these two models differentiate is with blindspot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. All of the Jeep Cherokee trims come with these two elements. However, the Equinox only gets these if you opt for the mid-level LT trim. You will also have to spring for the Confidence and Convenience Package.   Contact our team today to learn more about the Jeep Cherokee!
