In the market for your family's next SUV?
See how our Jeep Grand Cherokee here at Garavel Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram stacks up against the competition!

When it comes time to find your family's next vehicle, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has long been considered one of the most well-rounded and appealing options out there for Connecticut drivers. After all, with the reputation of Jeep Brand reliability backing its nameplate, the Grand Cherokee is a smart bet no matter how you look at it. However, competition in the SUV segment is stiff these days, and when you're in need to a capable means of transportation for your loved ones, you want to be sure you're getting the best for your money. Luckily, we want to get you the best for your money as well, which is why we've put together a short comparison to show you how the Jeep Grand Cherokee here at our Norwalk, CT dealership stacks up against one of its closest rivals, the Toyota Highlander.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Toyota Highlander

  • Price Point: At entry level, the Jeep Grand Cherokee clocks in at roughly $30,395 MSRP, whereas the base Toyota Highlander comes in higher at $30,630 MSRP. Now, that may seem like a negligible difference, but once you see what each is equipped with, you'll quickly realize how much more the Jeep Grand Cherokee has to offer than its competitor.
  • Cargo Space: Do you lead an active lifestyle and need room for both family and luggage along the way? If so, the Jeep Grand Cherokee provides ample space in both fore and aft seating, while offering up to 36.3 cubic-feet of cargo space behind the second row. Now, while the Toyota Highlander offers three rows of seating, it only provides a meager 13.8 cubic-feet of cargo space behind its third row, leaving much to be desired.
  • Performance: The Jeep Grand Cherokee features a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that churns out a respectable 295 horsepower. The Toyota Highlander, on the other hand, features a 2.7-liter inline four-cylinder engine at base, which features poor acceleration and barely 185 horsepower.
  • Premium Craftsmanship: The Jeep Grand Cherokee is practical for everyday use, but for those who're looking for a little more luxury, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit is well-equipped to accommodate. Coming available with plush Natura Plus perforated leather upholstery including leather-wrapped door panels and center console armrest, interior wood trim pieces, and active noise cancelling technology, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit's cabin is a serene and pleasant space to inhabit in your daily drives. However, even at the range-topping Limited Platinum trim, the most luxurious feature available with the Toyota Highlander is a heated steering wheel.
