2016 Lexus GX 460 vs. 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Lexus GX 460, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Lexus GX 460 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Convenience
With the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GX 460, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Lexus GX 460 is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Grand Cherokee. 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 Lexus GX 460 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Lexus GX 460 is much slimmer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Lexus GX 460 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Lexus GX 460 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Handling
The Lexus GX 460 has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Jeep Grand Cherokee for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Lexus GX 460 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
The Lexus GX 460 offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Lexus GX 460 has less cargo space than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Lexus GX 460 than that of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
