2014 Jeep Cherokee vs. 2014 Nissan Xterra Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Cherokee than in the Nissan Xterra. The Nissan Xterra 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 Nissan Xterra, 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). Whether you pick the Jeep Cherokee or the Nissan Xterra, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the Nissan Xterra.

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

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

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Xterra is clearly the choice over the Jeep Cherokee for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Cherokee has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Xterra.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Cherokee and the Nissan Xterra. The Jeep Cherokee has less cargo space than the Nissan Xterra, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Jeep Cherokee comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Xterra.
