Cherokee vs Grand Cherokee: Performance

Jeep drivers love customizing their own driving performances. That's why both models offer multiple engines to choose from, depending on what you're looking for.

Let's see what the models present in terms of their most powerful engines.

Even at its peak power, the Cherokee provides decent mileage and strong towing capabilities when properly equipped. Unsurprisingly, the Grand Cherokee with its bigger size has more room for even more impressive power configurations, beating the Cherokee in horsepower, torque, and towing.

However, for commuters who are focused on fill ups, the Cherokee tends to have better MPG overall, making it great for your everyday back and forth.  

Jeep Cherokee vs Jeep Grand Cherokee: Size

The most notable difference between these two cars is their sizes. The Jeep Cherokee is classified as a small crossover SUV, while the Grand Cherokee is considered a midsize SUV.

The big attraction for the Grand Cherokee comes from its deluxe interior that allows wiggle room for the driver and passengers. Plus, if you're more inclined to an outdoor adventure, the ample cargo space is fantastic for larger equipment like snowboards, kayaks, tents and more.

The Cherokee, on the other hand, has more passenger volume and over 40 inches of legroom in every seat. The extra inches will not go unnoticed during carpools and road trips, making this model a solid family vehicle.

Cherokee vs Grand Cherokee: Off-Roading

Between the two models, there are nearly 20 different trim levels for you to choose from. Both models take their off-roading capabilities seriously, so we suggest looking at the available Trailhawk® trim in both models.

Each Trailhawk is made to enhance your off-road experience with Trail Rated® features like:

  • Skid Plates: High-strength steel plates to help protect the underbody of your vehicle.
  • Terrain Tires: All-terrain Kevlar-reinforced tires for incredible traction.
  • Water Fording: High air intakes that can sustain up to 20 inches of water.

If you're not hitting the trails every day, opt for any other Cherokee or Grand Cherokee trim as they all offer an available 4x4 system. These systems are targeted to help your SUV conquer any surface on or off the road, including mud, gravel, rock, and snow.
