2019 Kia Sorento vs. 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee


There’s plenty to consider when comparing Kia Sorento vs. Jeep Grand Cherokee, including:

  • Power and MPG
  • Capability
  • Interior Space

Though both are in the same class, these are very different SUVs with very different purposes in mind, so it’s well worth taking the time to compare them closely.

Power and MPG Ratings

Jeep places a premium on power with five staggeringly potent engines:

  • 3.6L V6: Makes up to 295 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel: Makes up to 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.
  • 5.7L HEMI V8: Makes up to 360 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque.
  • 6.4L HEMI SRT V8: Makes up to 475 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque.
  • 6.2L Supercharged HEMI SRT V8: Makes up to 707 hp and 645 lb-ft of torque.

However, all that horsepower and torque demands fuel — The Jeep Grand Cherokee’s efficiency peaks at 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The Kia Sorento offers two engine options:

  • 2.4L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.3L V6: Makes up to 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.

It isn’t as powerful, but there’s more than enough under the hood for everyday driving. You’ll also make up to 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with the base configuration.


As you might expect, the Jeep SUV leads the way with best-in-class capability. Trail Rated models are available, and features include:

  • Quadra-Lift Air Suspension
  • Tow Hooks
  • Electronic Limited-Slip Differential
  • 10.8 Inches of Ground Clearance

Interior Space

The Kia SUV comes out ahead in terms of interior space and versatility. For starters, you’ll have space for 7 passengers instead of just five. Cargo space is also impressive:

  • Cargo Space Behind Second Row: Up to 38 cubic feet in the Kia vs. 36.3 in the Jeep.
  • Cargo Space Behind First Row: Up to 73 cubic feet in the Kia vs. just 68.3 in the Jeep.

Whether stuck in Monticello, MN traffic or cruising between Anoka, MN and Ramsey, MN, you’ll enjoy stretching out with up to 44.1 inches of front legroom in the 2019 Kia Sorento vs. 40.3 in the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
