Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Kia Sorento, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Cherokee, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Cherokee will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Sorento. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Cherokee is much higher than that for the Kia Sorento.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Sorento is clearly the choice over the Jeep Cherokee for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Cherokee has a little less horsepower than the Kia Sorento.

Utility
The Jeep Cherokee has less seating than the Kia Sorento, making the Kia Sorento the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Sorento.
