Differences Between Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee

When it comes to engine power, the differences between the 2017 Cherokee and 2017 Grand Cherokee are pretty apparent. The smaller engine of the 2017 Cherokee offers better fuel economy ratings and the vehicle can tow up to 2,000 pounds.  However, the boosted capability of the 3.6-liter six-cylinder under the hood of the Grand Cherokee might make those with a trailer or boat to tow feel more confident. 

Interior features shine in the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, as its higher price adds a variety of high-tech convenience options to the experience. However, both the 2017 Jeep Cherokee and 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee have standard features such as: a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth compatibility, cloth seating trim, heated front seats, three interior power outlets, and cruise control.
