If you're considering getting behind the wheel of a Jeep, you may be deciding between two of the most popular options: The 2019 Grand Cherokee and the Wrangler. Adventure is at the heart of both SUVs with daring engines and available 4x4 systems-but which vehicle should you get behind the wheel of?

Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Harford County wants to help you answer this question, so we created this helpful comparison. If our friends in Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen have any questions along the way, reach out to a member of our team.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Wrangler: Performance

Your next SUV needs to match your specific lifestyle demands. The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Wrangler have a variety of powertrain options to provide you with the smooth performance and towing capacity you desire-and the answer to which SUV you should select lies in your personal wants and needs.

The Grand Cherokee offers five motor options, each with their own unique benefits, like an available 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine generating 707 horsepower. A 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine is also available to haul up to 7,400 pounds with ease.

The Wrangler has two engine options, both of which can be equipped to haul a lightweight travel trailer. These efficient motors also provide an EPA-estimated 25 MPG on the highway to help you explore the road for hundreds of miles before needing to refuel.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Wrangler: Engine Options

Constructed to lead the United States army to victory during World War II, Jeep has a long history of rugged, bold capability, and the Grand Cherokee and Wrangler are no different. 

Both vehicles are armed with three available four-wheel drive systems to provide you with the road grip needed to take on unpredictable off-road situations.

Your selected system pairs with a Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System to optimize up to 12 vehicle systems for more optimal road grip and control. Choose from 

  • Snow
  • Sand
  • Auto
  • Mud
  • Rock

modes to match the demands of the terrain you're encountering and enjoy a graceful ride through a variety of conditions.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Wrangler: Exteriors

The biggest difference between these Jeep SUVs are their exteriors. While they both offer a maximum 10.8 inches of ground clearance to help you sail over rocks and bumps in the road, this is where their similarities end.

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee boasts sleek, dramatic lines that catch the light and your eye. Aerodynamic curves help you smoothly power down the open road while an aggressive stance is ready to take on whatever's thrown your way.

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler, on the other hand, features an exclusive open-air design. Choose from three top options to customize to your liking: Sunrider® Soft Top, Freedom Top® Three-Piece Hardtop, and Sky One-Touch™ Power Top. You can even remove the top, doors, and windshield entirely to experience a unique off-road ride that blends you in with your surroundings.
