Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee L than in the Jeep Grand Cherokee, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

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 Jeep Grand Cherokee will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

Dimensions
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is about the same width as the Jeep Grand Cherokee L. If you go with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Grand Cherokee will do just as well as the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Jeep Grand Cherokee L are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has less seating than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, making the Jeep Grand Cherokee L the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has less cargo space than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
