2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2015 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Chevrolet Traverse. The Chevrolet Traverse offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Jeep Grand Cherokee requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Traverse, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Chevrolet Traverse. 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 Chevrolet Traverse.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Traverse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Traverse.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Chevrolet Traverse are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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