Comparison Review

The GMC Acadia offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The GMC Acadia offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the GMC Acadia, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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).

In this case, the GMC Acadia will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Drivetrain
The GMC Acadia has much lower torque than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance

Utility
The GMC Acadia offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The GMC Acadia has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
