2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Its Competition

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Jeep Grand Cherokee competes against a slew of very good SUVs and crossovers.

Last year’s Best Car To Buy winner, the Kia Telluride, is chief among those, but lacks the off-road potential.

The GMC Acadia offers that in some trims but lacks the same polish.

The Chevy Tahoe is new this year and is refined but lacks the same depth in powertrains as the Jeep.

The Durango is mechanically related and offers three rows of seats.

The Ford Explorer is spacious and new but similarly expensive.
