Comparison Review

Comfort
The INFINITI QX50 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, with comparable head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the INFINITI QX50 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 INFINITI QX50, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the INFINITI QX50 will have less of an impact on your bank account 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. The INFINITI QX50 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Dimensions
Since the INFINITI QX50 is much slimmer than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The INFINITI QX50 is slightly shorter than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The INFINITI QX50 has the same turning radius as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the INFINITI QX50 has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the INFINITI QX50 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the INFINITI QX50 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The INFINITI QX50 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 INFINITI QX50 than that of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
