Vue CLI does not presents with any specific capabilities of its own but adds great value by making the process easier and capabilities more accessible.

2. Webpack

For building comparatively easier applications which having couple of pages, execution can be done with basic process of writing vue code with JS scripts in HTML files. But when you want to build complex applications and need reusable components then basic setup becomes painful. 

A usual webpack template comes with components like vue-loader, Babel, vue template compiler to enable compilation of vue code in JavaScript; vue style loader, CSS loader for customizing styles in .vue files. Webpack assembles all of these in one piece, create dependency graph and provide output JS file. Providing the means for getting the output file is what makes webpack useful in vue development.
