Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Bronco Sport offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Cherokee, with comparable head- and legroom. The Ford Bronco Sport will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its 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 Ford Bronco Sport as you will with the Jeep Cherokee, 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 Ford Bronco Sport or the Jeep Cherokee, 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. Both the Ford Bronco Sport and the Jeep Cherokee have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Bronco Sport is a little wider than the Jeep Cherokee, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Ford Bronco Sport, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Jeep Cherokee.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Bronco Sport transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Cherokee.

Performance
With the Ford Bronco Sport, you'll be able to pull heavier loads than the Jeep Cherokee. The Ford Bronco Sport has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Cherokee.

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