Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Volkswagen ID.4. The Volkswagen ID.4 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Grand Cherokee, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

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 Grand Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee is much wider than the Volkswagen ID.4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen ID.4.

Handling
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a significantly larger turning radius than the Volkswagen ID.4, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Volkswagen ID.4 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Grand Cherokee greatly out-muscles the Volkswagen ID.4.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Jeep Grand Cherokee does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Volkswagen ID.4.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Volkswagen ID.4. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volkswagen ID.4.
