Is the Cherokee or Grand Cherokee Your Better Choice?

It might have been less confusing if Jeep hadn’t given two of its SUVs essentially the same name. Are you wondering what makes the Grand Cherokee “grander” than the Cherokee? Well, we can clear that up for you at Northwest Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram by comparing the two.

Differences Between the Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee

The most obvious difference between the Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee is size. The Grand Cherokee is a mid-size SUV, and it’s about three inches wider and eight inches longer than the compact Cherokee.

Towing and Space

Both models seat five, but the back seats are a bit tighter in the Cherokee. The Grand Cherokee has about 13 cubic feet more of cargo space for more grocery space in Bristol. The larger SUV also has a towing capacity that ranges from 3,500 to 7,200 pounds, depending on the trim, whereas the Cherokee can only tow from 2,000 to 4,500 pounds.

Price and Trims

There are multiple trims available for both vehicles. Each line has at least one option that’s best utilized for off-road performance. There is also a top-of-the-line luxury trim in each line. Most trims are available with either two-wheel or four-wheel drive to match the needs of Torrington, CT drivers.

Because the Cherokee is smaller and less powerful, it has a slight advantage in fuel economy. It’s also less expensive, although the priciest trims of the Cherokee overlap with the least expensive Grand Cherokees.

Safety Features Available

Jeep makes driver-assist safety features and connectivity options available on Cherokees and Grand Cherokees. Different trims have different combinations of these features, but you can find what you want in both lines.
