Comparison Review

Comfort
The Jeep Cherokee offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Mitsubishi Outlander, with comparable head- and legroom. The Mitsubishi Outlander will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has 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 Jeep Cherokee as you will with the Mitsubishi Outlander, 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). The Jeep Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Outlander. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the Mitsubishi Outlander.

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

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

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Cherokee will do just as well as the Mitsubishi Outlander, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Jeep Cherokee has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Cherokee has significantly less cargo capacity than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
