Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Cherokee than in the Nissan Rogue. The Nissan Rogue 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
The Nissan Rogue requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Cherokee, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Jeep Cherokee or the Nissan Rogue, 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. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the Nissan Rogue.

Dimensions
The Jeep Cherokee is a little wider than the Nissan Rogue, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Cherokee takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Rogue.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Nissan Rogue for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Nissan Rogue.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Cherokee and the Nissan Rogue. The Jeep Cherokee has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Rogue.

Warranty
The Jeep Cherokee comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Rogue.
