2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Its Competition

2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Brian León Brian León Contributing Writer

The Dodge Durango shares a platform with the Grand Cherokee and features a similarly fast SRT model for big V-8 power in a family SUV package, though the Durango is bigger and offers three rows of seats.

Ford’s popular Explorer is redesigned and better than ever and offers a fast ST model with twin-turbo power.

The GMC Acadia does away with performance in the name of practicality.

The Kia Telluride and Volkswagen Atlas were clearly both inspired by the Grand Cherokee’s style, but both offer three-row practicality and plenty of value, especially the Kia.
