2018 Chevrolet Traverse vs. 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, with comparable head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
The Jeep Grand Cherokee requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Traverse, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Traverse will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Chevrolet Traverse carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Traverse is much wider than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Traverse, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Traverse has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Chevrolet Traverse offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Chevrolet Traverse, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Traverse comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
