When it comes to getting a quality utility vehicle, our Jeep lineup here in Houston has you covered. There's two vehicles that we'd like to highlight that always stand out among car buyers who stop in and see us and it's the Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee. Often times, we get asked what the difference is, and we'd like to explain.

The true difference is in the size of the vehicles. The Grand Cherokee is the flagship SUV for Jeep, meaning it sets the tone, and is the largest offering provided from the automaker. Just underneath it in size is the Cherokee, which has the same design, and many of the same quality features you'd expect to find on all Jeep vehicles.

So, the question is not whether one is better than the other because they both are high quality, but which fits your preferences. As we said, with the Grand Cherokee, you will find more cargo volume overall, as it sits on a bigger frame. But, the Cherokee also has ample room for many drivers, too.

When it comes to engines under the hood, as the bigger vehicle, the Grand Cherokee provides a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine with 295 horsepower, along with a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 and a 5.7-liter V8 engine that provides 360 horsepower. That's what sets it apart from others in its segment, and you can say the same about the Cherokee, too. It sports a 184-horsepower four-cylinder option, along with an all-new turbocharged four-cylinder with 270 horsepower, plus a 271-horsepower V6, which many of its competitors can't say in terms of options under the hood.

Both these vehicles come with trail-rated 4x4 quality as well with Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System and different driving modes for rock, snow, sand, and mud, plus each offers the same level of amenities with Uconnect® along with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ compatibility, and features like ParkView® to help you back in and out safely, alongside many other features that add safe driving and confidence to your experience.

Needless to say, both have much in common and to truly determine which one is right for you, stopping in to see us at Southfork Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM to test drive each one and get a hands-on feel is always a good choice. Our team would be happy to answer any questions and help you make the right decision today.
