Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Cherokee than in the Mitsubishi Outlander. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Cherokee and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Convenience
The Mitsubishi Outlander requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Cherokee, making it more convenient to drive.

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). The Jeep Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Mitsubishi Outlander. 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 Mitsubishi Outlander.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Cherokee is much wider than the Mitsubishi Outlander, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Jeep Cherokee takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Cherokee does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Handling
The Jeep Cherokee has a larger turning radius than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Mitsubishi Outlander for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Mitsubishi Outlander.

Utility
The Jeep Cherokee has less seating than the Mitsubishi Outlander, making the Mitsubishi Outlander the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Cherokee has less cargo space than the Mitsubishi Outlander, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mitsubishi Outlander.
