Jeep Cherokee

The interior and exterior dimensions are different between the 2022 Cherokee and the Grand Cherokee, making each one better suited for different things. For instance, the Cherokee has a shorter overall length and wheelbase, making maneuvering through tight city streets easier.

On the other hand, the extra length of the Grand Cherokee means it has more interior cargo space. It has a maximum cargo volume of 70.8 cubic feet compared to the 54.7 cubic feet of cargo volume in the Cherokee.

When it comes to passenger space, both SUVs comfortably seat up to five people. However, the Cherokee has slightly more legroom, while the Grand Cherokee has a bit more hip room. That means the answer to which vehicle is more comfortable depends on which dimensions you find more important.
