Jeep Grand Cherokee vs BMW X5: Which Luxury SUV Comes Out On Top?


Jeep Grand Cherokee vs BMW X5

It might not seem obvious to compare utility between a Jeep and a BMW, but with the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the BMW X5, there is actually a fair amount of crossover that might leave you surprised by the outcome of a head to head comparison.

The BMW X5 is a classic example of BMW’s approach to luxury SUV design. The X5 offers a large cabin with ample leg room, and all of the interior features are bright, polished, and high-end. Everything you might expect in terms of vehicle performance is here, but comes with a comparably large price tag. The BMW X5 is going to equate to a steep monthly payment since the starting MSRP of $82,000 is higher than most SUVs of its class.

Fortunately, Jeep steps in with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, bringing the luxury amenities plus the off-road ruggedness of Jeep you could ever want or need. With an MSRP of $32,150, monthly payments are much more feasible, too. Fans of powertrain options and perfected handling capability on-road as well as off-road, rejoice! The Jeep Grand Cherokee offers the most bang for your buck in these regards. But don’t worry, you don’t have to forgo any stylishness with the Grand Cherokee either, as the model offers wonderfully sleek trim options and state-of-the-art interior design.

In order to avoid racking up costly trips to the gas station, the Grand Cherokee sports an impressive advantage over the less economical BMW X5. With 19 MPG on city streets, and up to 26 MPG on the highway, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is the clear winner in this category. Additionally, the Grand Cherokee offers a more spacious fuel tank, ensuring that your summer road trip won’t be interrupted with frequent pit stops.

The MW X5 is certainly a luxurious SUV, but when push comes to shove, the Jeep Grand Cherokee outperforms it in many everyday situations. At the end of the day, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a fearsome off-road vehicle with top-quality features that won’t require an expensive monthly payment.
