But consumers want to know what this new model will offer – specifically how it matches up with the Grand Cherokee. So let’s take a look at the 2014 Jeep Cherokee vs Jeep Grand Cherokee. The new 2014 Jeep Cherokee will be fitted with several different engine options, one of which will be a 2.4-liter Tigershark that will allow it to get up to 31 miles per gallon highway fuel efficiency.
This means that the overall driving range of the vehicle will be up to 490 miles on one tank. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee will get 25 MPG on the highway in its standard version. But, it will be offered in a version equipped with an EcoDiesel V6 that will get up to 30 MPG on the highway. As for performance, the Grand Cherokee will get a little more horsepower and torque with its larger engine on most models.
