2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2015 Nissan Armada Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Armada than in the Jeep Grand Cherokee, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Armada will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

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 Nissan Armada.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Grand Cherokee will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Armada. 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 Grand Cherokee and the Nissan Armada have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee is much slimmer than the Nissan Armada, 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 Nissan Armada.

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

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

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

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Jeep Grand Cherokee seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan Armada. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Armada.
