2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2015 Acura RDX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Acura RDX. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Acura RDX.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Acura RDX.

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 Grand Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Acura RDX. 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 Grand Cherokee is much higher than that for the Acura RDX.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee is much wider than the Acura RDX, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is slightly longer than the Acura RDX.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Jeep Grand Cherokee transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Acura RDX.

Handling
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a smaller turning radius than the Acura RDX, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Acura RDX for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a little more horsepower than the Acura RDX.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Acura RDX. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Acura RDX.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura RDX.
