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).

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the GMC Acadia more than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the GMC Acadia, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
