2015 Acura MDX vs. 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Acura MDX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Acura MDX and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
The Jeep Grand Cherokee requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Acura MDX, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura MDX is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura MDX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
The Acura MDX is about the same width as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. When looking at overall length, the Acura MDX takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Acura MDX and the Jeep Grand Cherokee are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Acura MDX has the same turning radius as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Acura MDX for pulling heavy loads. The Acura MDX has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
The Acura MDX offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Acura MDX as you will in the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
