Comparison Review

The Jeep Grand Cherokee offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Lincoln Nautilus, with comparable 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 Lincoln Nautilus.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lincoln Nautilus.

Cost

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Lincoln Nautilus. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built.
