Comparison Review

Comfort
The GMC Terrain offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Cherokee, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the GMC Terrain and the Jeep Cherokee.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Terrain 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). When looking only at MSRP, the GMC Terrain will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Cherokee.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is a little narrower than the Jeep Cherokee, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the GMC Terrain takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Cherokee.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the GMC Terrain has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Cherokee.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the GMC Terrain does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Jeep Cherokee.

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the GMC Terrain than that of the Jeep Cherokee.
