2019 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Cherokee offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Cherokee.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Cherokee as you will with the Jeep Wrangler, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Jeep Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Wrangler. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Jeep Cherokee and the Jeep Wrangler have similar Destination Charges.

The Jeep Cherokee is about the same width as the Jeep Wrangler. If you go with the Jeep Cherokee, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Wrangler.

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

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Cherokee will do just as well as the Jeep Wrangler, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Jeep Cherokee has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
