Vehicle Comparisons:
Nissan Murano vs Jeep Grand Cherokee

If you need extra space and style in your vehicle, you should consider getting an SUV. These impressive behemoths are capable of seating many people comfortably and still have room left for some extra cargo. SUVs are a popular class of car, however, so there are a lot to choose from. With such a competitive market, which one is right for you?

Two of the best options for a new SUV are the 2017 Nissan Murano and the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Both of these incredible vehicles have so much to offer, but only one can be best for you. To make your decision easier, we’ve put together this helpful comparison. Learn about the differences between the Nissan Murano and the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and discover which SUV is best suited for your needs.

Nissan Murano Efficiency

If you like to be economical with your vehicle, the Murano is the clear choice. In terms of fuel economy, it far exceeds the Grand Cherokee’s capabilities. The Murano features an incredible EPA-estimated 24 mpg combined while the Grand Cherokee can only muster an EPA-estimated 21 mpg combined at best. At worst, the Grand Cherokee SRT trim only gets an EPA-estimated 15 mpg combined.

The Murano is also lighter than the Grand Cherokee by over 1,000 pounds. You may not think about it, but this actually goes a long way to relieving wear and stress on your tires and brakes, so you’ll be spending less time at the service center.

Nissan Technology

Nissan has always been a leader in technology, and their Murano is no different. Outfitted with the latest tech, the Grand Cherokee’s systems can’t compete. While the Jeep SUV does feature a pretty innovative infotainment system, the Murano’s is state-of-the-art. With NissanConnect®, your smartphone connection to your vehicle has never been stronger. Aside from accessing your favorite apps, you can also look up movie listings, sports information, and traffic updates.

The Murano also features valet parking. The Around View® Monitor gives you a 360 degree bird’s eye view of your Murano, so you can see everything around it. You can even set up a split screen close-up to your front, rear and curbside viewpoints. It also has a system especially designed to detect moving objects. The Grand Cherokee offers nothing similar.

Nissan Driver Safety Assistance

Continuing to lead in technology, the Nissan Murano works toward Nissan’s Intelligent Mobility initiative, which seeks to change the way we drive. The Nissan Safety Shield® in the Murano includes many driver assistance features that go a long way to make driving easier and prevent accidents from occurring.

The system is divided into three categories of features that work to monitor, respond and protect. The Grand Cherokee includes a few driver assistance features, but doesn’t come close to the Murano’s comprehensive collection.
