2020 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Who doesn’t like driving a Jeep Cherokee SUV? Our Logansport customers sure do! Who can blame them? There’s so much to love about these ruggedly handsome vehicles. The hard part is trying to decide between the Jeep Cherokee vs. the  Jeep Grand Cherokee. The good news is that you can’t go wrong choosing either one. But, what’s the difference? We want you to make an informed decision, so we’ve put together this detailed, side-by-side Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee base model comparison.

2020 Jeep Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee: Cost

The Cherokee is a slightly more economical choice than the Grand Cherokee, though both are a bargain for what they offer. The starting MSRP for the base model 2020 Cherokee is just $25,935, compared to $32,240 for the Grand Cherokee. But that’s not the only way you save with the Cherokee. You’ll also spend less at the pump. The EPA-estimated gas mileage for the Cherokee is 31 miles per gallon on the highway and 22 miles per gallon in the city. For the Grand Cherokee, that’s 26 miles per gallon on the highway and 19 miles per gallon in the city. Of course, if you really want to save, you should check out our new vehicle specials.

2020 Jeep Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee: Power and Performance

Maybe the main reason for the slightly higher cost of the Grand Cherokee is the extra power delivered by its 3.6L V6 engine. That engine delivers an impressive 293 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It can tow a massive 3,500 pounds. The Cherokee, while not quite as powerful, is no slouch, either; its 2.4L I-4 engine can deliver 180 horsepower, 171 lb-ft of torque, and can tow up to 2,000 pounds.

2020 Jeep Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee: Space

We’d be remiss if we didn’t cover interior space in this Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee comparison. This contest is actually a mixed bag. Who the winner is depends on whether you need more space for your cargo or passengers. The Grand Cherokee delivers more cargo space with a maximum total cargo volume of 68.3 cubic feet, compared to 54.7 cubic feet with the Cherokee. On the other hand, the Cherokee delivers 13 more cubic feet of passenger volume than the Grand Cherokee. Both SUVs have seating for five and plenty of room for whatever you need to haul around Rensselaer.
