Jeep Wrangler vs Jeep Grand Cherokee: Towing & Horsepower

Both the Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Grand Cherokee offer some seriously powerful engines and towing capability. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is up for anything from your daily commute to your next family adventure. It offers three powerful engines for you to choose from, including:

  • V6 engine
  • V8 engine
  • 375 horsepower hybrid powertrain option

On top of that, when properly equipped, this SUV can tow up to 7,200 pounds.

In comparison, the Jeep Wrangler offers a similarly powerful 4-engine lineup that also includes a hybrid powertrain option. When properly equipped, this Jeep can tow up to 3,500 pounds. For those seeking quickest acceleration, however, the 470 horsepower 6.4L HEMI® V8 may be the ticket.

For those who want to tow larger camping trailers or recreational boats, the Jeep Grand Cherokee may be a better fit. On the other hand, if you still want to travel with jet skis and snowmobiles, while having an extra-responsive engine under the hood, you might prefer the Jeep Wrangler.


Jeep Wrangler vs Jeep Grand Cherokee: Off-Road Capability

On top of its impressive engine lineup, the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers all-weather capability with the optional Quadra-Drive® II system and available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System that features several selectable drive modes.

If you’re looking for a model that prefers dirt to pavement, though, the slightly more rugged Jeep Wrangler may be a better fit. This model offers three 4×4 systems to choose from, including:

  • Selec-Trac® 4×4 System: Switches automatically between 2- and 4-wheel drive
  • Command-Trac® 4×4 System: Ideal for rock crawling with a 2.72:1 low range
  • Rock-Trac® 4×4 System: Offers off-road performance with a 4:1 low-gear ratio for crawling at lower speeds with an increase in torque

In short, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is more than competent off the pavement. For those who want to truly take the road less traveled, though, the Jeep Wrangler will likely be a better match.


Jeep Wrangler vs Jeep Grand Cherokee: Design

The 2023 Jeep Wrangler and 2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee also have ample interior space to accommodate passengers and belongings. The Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a standard 5-passenger model and an optional L model with seating for up to seven.

In the table below you can see how the Jeep Wrangler 4-door and the Jeep Grand Cherokee match up when it comes to passenger and cargo dimensions:
