Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Highlander Hybrid than in the Jeep Grand Cherokee, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Grand Cherokee offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Grand Cherokee as you will with the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, 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 Grand Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. 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 Grand Cherokee is much higher than that for the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is about the same width as the Toyota Highlander Hybrid. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is slightly shorter than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Grand Cherokee does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Toyota Highlander Hybrid.
