NISSAN ROGUE VS JEEP CHEROKEE: PERFORMANCE
Equipped with commanding 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, the 2019 Rogue
delivers 170 horsepower that’s seamlessly managed via an Xtronic® Continuously Variable Transmission. The result is a drive that feels both highly responsive and quickly adaptable to changing road conditions.
When the roads turn slick or snowy, the Rogue’s Intelligent AWD automatically adjusts to supply power where and when its needed. Additional Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ features include Active Brake Control and Intelligent Trace Control that helps you take on tight corners with ease.
By comparison, the Jeep Cherokee’s base trim employs a 2.4L I4 MultiAir® 2 engine that’s paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Like the Rogue, it uses Variable Valve Timing technology to increase its overall efficiency but falls considerably short in terms of overall driving range:
