Need Help Deciding on Your New Compact SUV?

Compare the 2019 GMC Terrain and 2019 Jeep Cherokee

The 2019 GMC Terrain and 2019 Jeep Cherokee are both compact SUVs but they represent two ends of the spectrum. The GMC SUV is made by a premium automaker and therefore includes more niceties. In contrast, the Jeep SUV is made by an automaker that specializes in off-roading, making it more suitable for the adventurous driver. Each has its pros and cons as a result. However, we believe that the product from our brand is the better choice in the grand scheme of things, and a comparison demonstrates why.

Review the Kasper Buick GMC comparison to understand why our team recommends the new 2019 GMC Terrain over the 2019 Jeep Cherokee to drivers like you from Lorain and Fremont, OH!


Even at its most basic level, the GMC Terrain takes the lead. The 180-horsepower 2.4-liter Tigershark® Multiair® 2 engine equipped on the Jeep Cherokee is slightly stronger in terms of horsepower, but its 171 pound-feet of torque falls substantially short. GMC's 1.5-liter Turbo engine not only supplies 170 horsepower but a whopping 203 pound-feet of torque-and the best part? You can enjoy this higher output with an efficiency of 28 combined miles per gallon, a figure that exceeds its competitor. Plus, there are two even stronger alternatives for drivers who desire more strength.


If you are shopping for an SUV, then one reason is likely for more space. Though both the GMC Terrain and Jeep Cherokee are five-passenger models, their dimensions differ substantially. Even with all of its back seats folded down, the Jeep is limited to 54.9 cubic feet of space. In turn, the GMC provides up to 63.6 cubic feet of space thanks to its front-to-back flat load floor. With the passenger seat tucked away, you can even fit objects like lumber and skis that are eight feet long! In other words, those who intend to haul more cargo will prefer our model.


As a luxury SUV, the 2019 GMC Terrain naturally has more advancements than the 2019 Jeep Cherokee. This is clearly demonstrated by its hi-tech composition. For your enjoyment, GMC offers a seven-inch infotainment system-complete with Bluetooth® streaming and Apple and Android connectivity. To ensure your drives are always safe, there are plenty of precautionary measures, too. For instance, the optional Front Pedestrian Braking and Lane Keep Assist systems will help you stay alert to potential hazards and prevent an accident. In fact, the GMC SUV earned the 5-Star NHTSA Safety Rating!
