2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Its Competition

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

With the addition of the longer, larger Grand Cherokee L last year, Jeep expanded the SUV’s reach to compete against other three-row SUVs, ranging from the Dodge Durango and Ford Explorer to the redesigned 2022 Nissan Pathfinder and its 6,000-lb tow rating.

The five-seat Grand Cherokee that raised the profile of SUVs back in the '90s has the off-road chops to compete against the aging 2022 Toyota 4Runner.

The Blazer shares the handsome styling of the GC but not all the capability.

Honda slaps some off-road appearance parts on the Passport, but it splits the difference between the CR-V and larger Pilot.

Equally capable, the Subaru Outback lacks the same interior refinement and powertrain options.
