2018 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE VS. 2018 TOYOTA HIGHLANDER
If you want an SUV that can handle the terrain around Castle Rock, the 2018 Toyota Highlander might do. The Highlander features a spacious interior, a suite of safety equipment, and enough off-road capability to handle dirt roads and country byways. But if you’re looking for an SUV that is as at home at your favorite Denver brunch spot as it is in the mountains around Pueblo, then only the affordable 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee has what it takes.
ENGINE SPECS AND HANDLING
The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee provides the kind of power you finance an SUV for with access to multiple engines including the supercharged 6.2 L HEMI V-8 powerplant that delivers as much as 707-hp and 645 lb.-ft. of torque.
The Highlander’s most powerful engine is a 3.5 L V-6 double overhead cam 24-valve direct-injection powerplant that promises just 295-hp and 263 lb.-ft. of torque – half of what the Jeep offers.
INTERIOR FEATURES, DESIGN, AND SPACE
Both SUVs give Woodland Park adventure seekers plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy the trip but, while the Jeep Grand Cherokee delivers creature comforts like remote engine start, automatic climate control, easy entry, dual-zone air-conditioning, and an automatic parking system to handle those tight Canon City parking spaces, the Toyota Highlander does not. If Toyota drivers want dual-zone air-conditioning will have to pay extra for it and if their shopping for any of the other features they have to keep looking.
Both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Toyota Highlander provide access to a wide range of advanced safety features including standard driver and passenger front airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, electronic stability control, traction control, four-wheel antilock brakes, blind spot warning systems, front parking sensors, and rear cross path warning.
But the Jeep Grand Cherokee scored higher on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s 35 mile-per-hour crash tests thanks to a more rugged design that was less likely to deform in a collision, as well as a rigid plastic fuel tank which was able to withstand more intrusive impacts than the Highlander’s metal fuel tank.
