But size is not the only factor that sets the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee apart. Each of these vehicles has its own sense of style and set of features.

Model Comparison Analysis

When it comes to engines, the Jeep Cherokee has two engine options, but even the upgraded 3.2L engine in the Cherokee doesn’t compare to the power in the smallest Grand Cherokee engine. The Grand Cherokee has an even longer list of engine options that culminates in the same supercharged 6.2L V8 found in the Dodge Challenger.

The Grand Cherokee isn’t just bigger on the outside, which translates into a lot more interior space. It’s not quite enough to merit a third row of seats, but it is enough to remind everyone why it deserves the title of “Grand.” The Jeep Grand Cherokee isn’t the biggest Jeep, though, that honor belongs to the 4-door Jeep Wrangler or the Jeep Gladiator, depending on how you look at it.
