Keith Barry Preview:

Although the Jeep Grand Cherokee remains one of the most capable vehicles you can buy, it hasn’t undergone a major redesign since 2011. Still, there’s big news for 2018—a 707-hp Trackh...

Handling Ranked 2018 Subaru Outback 3.6R Limited better.

Power Ranked 2018 GMC Acadia SLE2 AWD worse.
"Despite similar sized engines, the Grand Cherokee accelerated better and felt more powerful than the Acadia."
Handling Ranked 2018 GMC Acadia SLE2 AWD worse.
"Probably due to a more stable platform."
Looks/Style Ranked 2018 GMC Acadia SLE2 AWD worse.
"The Classic Jeep design is a sharp look that others try to emulate. The Acadia looked too boxy and the newer design isnt as appealing as the previous model."
Front Seats Ranked 2018 GMC Acadia SLE2 AWD worse.
"Much more comfortable and better looking (heated) seats on the Grand Cherokee, The Acadias leather seats looked and felt cheap."
Back Seats Ranked 2018 GMC Acadia SLE2 AWD worse.
"Much more headroom, leg room and cargo space in the Grand Cherokee. Despite having a third row of seating in the Acadia, the second and third row seating feel cramped."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 GMC Acadia SLE2 AWD worse.
"Even with the third row seats down, there is still more cubic feet of cargo space in the Grand Cherokee (which doesnt have a third row) than the Acadia."
Family Car Ranked 2018 GMC Acadia SLE2 AWD worse.
"More cargo space and smoother ride."
Value Ranked 2018 GMC Acadia SLE2 AWD worse.
"Far more features on the Grand Cherokee and 4WD is pretty much the standard, as opposed to upgrading the Acadia from FWD to AWD. Even with the disparity in features, the Grand Cherokee price was much less."
Would Buy Ranked 2018 GMC Acadia SLE2 AWD worse.
"Better Value and features on Jeep Grand Cherokee. 4WD is a better option than AWD. Tech package in Jeep is superior to GMCs Infotainment system."
