The 2018 Jeep Cherokee and the 2018 Grand Cherokee are two capable SUVs that live up to the Jeep name with off-road performance, powerful engines, and spacious interiors. There are some differences between these two vehicles, however.

Drivers in New London, Clintonville, and Shawano can discover the key differences between these SUVs with our 2018 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2018 Grand Cherokee comparison.


 The 2018 Jeep Cherokee comes with a 4-cylinder that produces 184 horsepower, which is plenty to move this lightweight vehicle. A 3.2L V6 engine is optional as well, which gives the Cherokee a little more oomph and produces 271 horsepower. The Grand Cherokee offers a 3.6L V6 engine, a 5.7L V8 engine, or a 6.4L V8 engine with 475 horsepower, as well as a high-performance option with 707 horsepower.

Though the Grand Cherokee has the more powerful engine options, it's a heavier vehicle, and both have appropriate towing and off-roading capabilities for their respective size and power. The Cherokee can tow up to 4,500 pounds, while the Grand Cherokee can tow up to 7,200 pounds when properly equipped.


The biggest interior differences between the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee are a result of size. The Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee each have spacious interiors with ample head- and legroom for their size, as well as upgrades like leather upholstery, power-adjustable seating, and driver seat memory functions for more comfort and convenience. The Cherokee comes standard with sliding and reclining rear seats as well, improving the comfort for the backseat passengers.

For cargo, the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee each have small storage bins and cubbies throughout the cabin, as well as 60/40-split folding rear seats and a folding front-passenger seat to accommodate large or long cargo. The Cherokee's cargo bay offers 24.6 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats upright and 54.9 cubic feet with the seats folded. The Grand Cherokee has a larger cargo bay, which offers 36.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats upright and 68.3 cubic feet with the seats folded.


 The Cherokee and Grand Cherokee each have some of the most popular infotainment and safety features available, including Bluetooth® compatibility, a rearview camera, and a sharp Uconnect® infotainment system. The Grand Cherokee has a 7-inch touchscreen, compared to the Cherokee's 5-inch display, but both offer upgrades for larger touchscreens. Satellite radio is standard for both as well.

The Uconnect® infotainment system is one of the most intuitive on the market, offering sharp touchscreen graphics, responsive inputs, and an easy-to-use interface with simple, straightforward menu options. With the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, included with both, you'll have access to all your phone's features and apps for endless entertainment options.
