4X4 Handling

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is designed for all types of terrain thanks to its innovative 4×4 systems:

  • Jeep Active Drive I
  • Jeep Active Drive II
  • Jeep Active Drive Lock

While the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is available in AWD, it does not focus on 4×4 handling as part of its feature set. While the Cherokee has different types of 4×4 systems, the Equinox only has one type of AWD drivetrain. If you want more 4×4 options, the Cherokee delivers.
