The Chevrolet Traverse has slightly more standard shoulder room than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, especially in the rear seating.
The Chevrolet Traverse holds eight people comfortably, while the Jeep Grand Cherokee seats seven with the optional rear third row. The Grand Cherokee comes with standard power driver seat adjustment and power mirrors.
In the Jeep Grand Cherokee with the standard two-row configuration, the second row is a 60/40 split. In the optional three-row configuration, the second row is bucket seats, and the rear third row is a smaller 50/50 split.
The standard rear seats all fold completely flat, so you can slide larger items along the floor to maximize cargo space. Power rear folding seats are optional with higher-end models like the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is smaller overall, leading to slightly less cargo space than the Chevrolet Traverse. With three rows, the Jeep has 17.2 cubic feet of cargo space, compared to 23 cubic feet in the Traverse.
With both rear seats folded down, the Cherokee has 84.6 cubic feet compared to the Traverse's 98.2. And with optional rear access through the Power Liftgate (found in the Altitude model above), loading it up is a dream.
Both cars have ample cargo capacity, with optional arrangements to fit whatever you need to move in your car. With a payload of 1266 lbs for the Jeep Grand Cherokee and 1850 lbs for the Chevrolet Traverse, you have plenty of power to move your life.
Both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Chevrolet Traverse come with a standard limited warranty that covers three years or 36,000 miles. The powertrain warranty covers six years and 60,000 miles.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee starts at the standard manufacturer's suggested price of about $41,000, compared to the Chevrolet Traverse at the price of just over $35,900. The base model Grand Cherokee comes with many more high-quality features that the more stripped-down Chevrolet sets aside to keep the price lower.
To compare these cars, it helps to set your priorities. The Chevrolet Traverse has slightly more shoulder room and is a little more powerful. However, the handling and size make the car less comfortable to drive on a busy city street.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee L feels like a much higher quality car, offering many upgrades as standard items on the base model. The Chevrolet Traverse makes these things optional, to be purchased as upgrades. That sets the experience driving these SUVs worlds apart.
