Jeep Cherokee vs Grand Cherokee

 
  
  


Jeep vehicles are designed with adventure in mind, but how do you choose the right model for your lifestyle? When it comes to the 2022 Jeep Cherokee and 2022 Grand Cherokee, both models sport impressive, unique features and capabilities that drivers in Rockwall, Terrell, Rowlett, or Wylie, TX, don’t want to miss out on.

In this detailed comparison, we at Rockwall Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) will introduce you to these two models and their many similarities and differences. Read ahead to see how these two vehicles stack up against each other when it comes to performance, off-road readiness, and safety!


Cherokee vs Grand Cherokee: Performance

The 2022 Jeep Cherokee offers three impressive engines in its powertrain lineup, starting with a standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine. With this engine and the 9-speed automatic transmission linked to it, you’ll enjoy a peppy 180 horsepower and an impressive EPA-estimated 22 city and 31 highway MPG.

The second engine option is an available 2.0L Turbo engine that gives you 270 horsepower—nearly an additional 100 horsepower over the standard 2.4L engine. Your torque gets a boost, too, to 295 lb-ft.

The most powerful engine of the Cherokee is the available 3.2L Pentastar® V6 engine that delivers 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee also offers a handful of engines to choose from, including a powerful available 2.0L I4 DOHC DI Turbo PHEV engine. It makes a whopping 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

For the most towing power you can get with the Grand Cherokee, you’ll want the available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with 357 horsepower. With this kind of power, you can tow up to 7,200 pounds of trailer weight when properly equipped.

You can up the capability in either vehicle with an available 4×4 drivetrain. These drivetrains send the perfect amount of power and torque to each wheel to ensure you get the best grip possible no matter what the road conditions are.


Off-Roading

Cherokee vs Grand Cherokee: Off-Roading

A Jeep is typically known for its off-road expertise. The Cherokee and Grand Cherokee come up big in this department. They’re designed to conquer flat roads and mud, rocks, dirt, and water. No matter where you’re heading next, your Jeep can get you there.

That is thanks in part to both SUVs’ approach, break-over, and departure angles. Additionally, the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee can handle quite some water and head over some intense rocky terrain.


Dimensions

Cherokee vs Grand Cherokee: Dimensions

The interior and exterior dimensions are different between the 2022 Cherokee and Grand Cherokee, making each better suited for different things. For instance, the Cherokee has a shorter overall length and wheelbase, making maneuvering through tight city streets easier. On the other hand, the longer wheelbase of the Grand Cherokee makes for a smoother, more stable ride across bumpy terrain.

Additionally, the extra length of the Grand Cherokee means it also has more interior cargo space. It has a maximum cargo volume of 70.8 cubic feet, compared to the 54.7 cubic feet of cargo volume in the Cherokee.

Both SUVs comfortably seat up to five people when it comes to passenger space. However, the Cherokee has slightly more legroom, while the Grand Cherokee has a bit more hip room. That means the answer to which vehicle is more comfortable depends on which dimensions you find more important.

Style

Cherokee vs Grand Cherokee: Style

Both the Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee have exterior design features you’re used to seeing on members of the Jeep lineup, such as trapezoidal wheel arches and the signature 7-slot grille. However, there are also stylistic differences between these two vehicles.

For instance, the Cherokee comes with LED exterior lighting, from the available fog lamps, to the standard LED taillamps, and everything in between. The standard LED daytime running lamps are designed to swoop across the top of the high/low LED headlamps for a distinctive design.

The headlamps on the Grand Cherokee are also LED. You also get standard LED taillamps, available LED fog lamps, and LED daytime running lamps if you would like.


Safety Features

Safety Features

Safety is a top priority whether you’re on the highway or in the middle of the woods. Therefore, both the Jeep Cherokee and the Jeep Grand Cherokee are equipped with an array of safety features to form a comprehensive safety net for you and your loved ones.

Both models offer the following features:

  • Electronic Stability Control
  • Hill Start Assist
  • ParkView® Rear Back-up Camera

You’ll also get several standard active safety features on both the Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee, including Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection. This system keeps an eye on your blind spots when you go to change lanes or pull out of parking spots and driveways.

Another standard system in the Cherokee is LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning. With it, your vehicle will monitor the lines that mark your lane, warning you if you begin to drift out of them to ensure you always stay safely within your own lane. Both systems are offered as standard in the Grand Cherokee.

The Grand Cherokee also has standard Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go. This feature is like an upgrade to traditional cruise control. You set the distance you want from the vehicle ahead of you, and the system slows and speeds up your Grand Cherokee as needed to maintain it.


Jeep Cherokee vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee: Pick Your Favorite

The 2022 Jeep Cherokee and the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee are both great choices for a safe yet adventure-filled drive. No matter which Jeep model you choose, you’ll be behind the wheel of a robust, capable, stylish, and safe vehicle.
