Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee Looks

The Jeep Cherokee has been recently restyled with a refreshed grille and nose and new LED headlamps. The look of the Jeep Cherokee bears a slight resemblance to the slightly smaller Jeep Compass. Its appearance overall is a bit improved but not overly bold like its larger Grand Cherokee brother. There is an off-road equipped Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk model that features more aggressive off-road accessories, including red tow hooks, and beefier off-road capable tires.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee features a look that continues to grow on us after all these years. Off-road abilities? The Jeep Grand Cherokee has got plenty, thanks to 8.6 inches of ground clearance. There are other Jeep trim levels, including the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and the Jeep GC Trackhawk, with supercharged HEMI engine and quad pipes out-back.

Safety You Can Count On

City streets or country roads don’t make a difference to both vehicles regarding their safety features. The Jeep has Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection, and the Subaru has Blind-Spot Detection and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Both of these systems are designed to alert you when they detect a vehicle entering your blind spot. When in reverse, they’ll let you know if they detect cars are coming at you on either side.

If you’ve got a long drive ahead of you, both SUVs help monitor your surroundings when you’re on the go. Jeep’s LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning System and Adaptive Cruise Control, and Subaru’s standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, each help keep track of your vehicle when you’re on the go. With warnings for any detected lane departures, and adaptive cruise control in relation to traffic around you, both of these vehicles have got your back no matter where you are.


This revolutionary system gives you ultimate control of Jeep® Grand Cherokee’s suspension. You can lower the vehicle’s height by 40 mm for easy entry, exit and loading; or you can rise it to increase clearance from the ground when driving off road. The system will also raise the vehicle from back to front to help keep headlights focused on the road.

How does the Jeep Grand Cherokee Compare to its Competitors? 

Some of the models that rival the Jeep Grand Cherokee include the GMC Terrain, Toyota 4Runner, Nissan Pathfinder, Land Rover Range Rover Sport, Lexus GX, Land Rover Discovery, Dodge Durango, Kia Telluride, Chevrolet Traverse, Volvo XC60, Jaguar F-Pace, and GMC Acadia.

Here’s how the Jeep Grand Cherokee compares against these based on ground clearance.  

** **

At 8.6 inches high, the Jeep Grand Cherokee sits higher than nine competing models. These include the GMC Terrain, Nissan Pathfinder, GMC Acadia, Kia Telluride, Chevrolet Traverse, Lexus GX, Dodge Durango, Jaguar F-Pace, and Volvo XC60.

This is, of course, if you’re looking at the Laredo, Limited, Summit, and Overland trims. The Trackhawk and SRT trims sit lower at 8.1 inches and only compare to the Lexus GX and Dodge Durango. However, they have better ground clearance when put beside the GMC Terrain, Nissan Pathfinder, GMC Acadia, Kia Telluride, and Chevrolet Traverse. 

When it comes to the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, the only two vehicles that have a higher ride height include the Range Rover Sport and Land Rover Discovery. The Discovery is ranked top among many other SUVs that boast the largest ground clearance in the US. It is, however, defeated by the Range Rover Vogue which rides at 11.6 inches. 


Buying a used or CPO luxury car is one of the smartest buys you can make – you can get a lot of car for not much money. You can pick up a three-year-old luxury car for about half of what you’d pay new. Check out this list of the best used luxury cars on the market to find the best deals. 

1. The Jeep Cherokee lacks cargo space

If you’re spending this much on a small SUV, the chances are that you need it to haul at least two kids around. According to Car and Driver, all of their stuff might not fit. They mentioned that the cargo area is smaller and cubby storage is average at best compared to rivals.

There is 25.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and up to 54.7 cubic feet of cargo space total. The Honda CR-V offers up to 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space, and the Ford Escape offers up to 65.4 cubic feet. So, the Cherokee is lacking. 

They mentioned that the Jeep Cherokee can feel a little claustrophobic. It has high window seals and small windows that contribute to this feeling. Also, the high lift-over height can make it difficult to load cargo. 


As the most capable SUV in its class, the new Grand Cherokee Trail Rated® delivers off-road dominance with a Quadra-Lift® Air Suspension, Selec-Speed® Control and Quadra-Drive® II with a rear Electronic Limited-Slip Differential.
