Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Grand Cherokee than in the Volvo XC60. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Volvo XC60.

Convenience
The Jeep Grand Cherokee requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo XC60, 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 Grand Cherokee is somewhat more expensive than the Volvo XC60. 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 Grand Cherokee is much higher than that for the Volvo XC60.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee is much wider than the Volvo XC60, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is slightly longer than the Volvo XC60.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Grand Cherokee doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volvo XC60.

Handling
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC60, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is clearly the choice over the Volvo XC60 for pulling heavy loads. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC60.

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 Volvo XC60.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Jeep Grand Cherokee is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo XC60.
