What Are the Differences Between the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee?

At Russ Darrow Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, there's one question we hear a lot from drivers who are deciding between two standout vehicles in our showroom. What's the difference between the Jeep Cherokee and the Jeep Grand Cherokee? It's a question that we're here to answer so you can make an informed choice on your next vehicle purchase.

The main difference is size. The Grand Cherokee has more size than the Cherokee. The Grand Cherokee offers 36.8 cubic feet of space in the cargo area, along with 68.3 cubic feet of space when the rear seats are folded down while the Cherokee provides an ample 25.8 cubic feet in the back with 54.7 cubic feet when you fold the seats down.

Another difference is power. The Grand Cherokee has a bigger engine block. It utilizes a 295-horsepower V6 engine standard, and also has V8 options depending on the trim level you choose. The Cherokee uses an efficient 184-horsepower engine with 30 miles per gallon on the highway, and if you want more power there is an available turbocharged engine with 270 horsepower available.

After that, you're not going to find too many differences, but a lot of similarities. Each vehicle offers seating for five, and come with standout modern technology and safety features. That includes standard touch displays with Uconnect® for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration. There's also forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, lane change assist, ParkView®, ParkSense® and LaneSense® all available as safety options onboard to give you confidence.

Additionally, you're getting available 4x4 capability with the likes of Selec-Terrain® for the ability to ride on many different surfaces with confidence.
