Cherokee vs. Grand Cherokee: Engines & Capability

Between the Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Grand Cherokee, the two offer different advantages for the Hennessey roads ahead. The Jeep Cherokee has the better fuel economy of the two models at 23 city and 31 highway mpg, which makes it an excellent choice for an everyday driver. The Cherokee is also available in a Trailhawk® trim with serious off-road chops and a 2,000-pound towing capacity.

But overall, it’s the Jeep Grand Cherokee that has the edge on towing capacity and power. The entry-level Laredo alone can tow 3,500 pounds, and that number skyrockets to 7,200-pounds on Trailhawk® trim. You might find that the Cherokee has plenty of pep for your daily drives, but if you need more muscle, the Grand Cherokee is a great choice.
