2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Its Competition

Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee spans a breathtaking price range, with competitors at every stop.

The Land Rover Discovery comes closest to the Jeep’s capability and luxury, but can’t go as low as the Grand Cherokee in base trim.

The Subaru Outback is an unlikely contender, base versions have similar capability with an equally low price tag.

The Ford Explorer doesn’t offer the same off-roadability, but can offer a third row for growing families.

For on-road drivers, the GMC Acadia offers creature comforts and an upscale interior, but perhaps not the same capability as the Jeep.

The Porsche Cayenne is another luxury all-arounder and offers a Porsche price tag that the Jeep largely skips.
