Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee L than in the Jeep Grand Cherokee, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Jeep Grand Cherokee as you will with the Jeep Grand Cherokee L, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Grand Cherokee will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Grand Cherokee L.

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