The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee has received praise for its incredible towing capacity, elegant interior and the choice of 3 engines. But can it beat the 2022 Porsche Macan, an SUV which is coveted for its incredible performance, posh cabin and array of personalization options?
Design & Style
The Porsche Macan presents itself as a moderately sized crossover that is capable of seating five. Its newest features for the year include a power increase, numerous technology upgrades and stylistic touches. Passengers within its cabin will be treated to 11 inch touch displays which are high resolution and simple to use, while the exterior features pronounced rear diffusers with refined body curves and nineteen inch wheels.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee can seat up to seven passengers depending on the version you purchase. Its newest features for the year include a plugin option and dual row model which has been redesigned. It sits on twenty one inch wheels and features a 7 slotted grille on front. The engineers also lowered its beltline and roofline. Within the cabin passengers will be presented with a centralized console arrangement with more space for storing small items.
Technology & Safety
The Jeep Grand Cherokee now comes with a number of standardized features, especially emergency automatic brakes. Additional countermeasures include parking sensors, a camera with night vision, activated lane control, blind area monitoring and adapted cruise control. Amenities within its cabin include Amazon Alexa, powered seats that can be cooled, heated and adjusted eight ways, and the choice of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
The Porsche Macan also comes with numerous standardized features, such as automatic dimming mirrors, parking sensors for the rear and front, and lane departure alerts. Other features that can be added include adapted cruise control, activated lane control and carbon ceramic brakes. Amenities within its cabin include climate control, powered seats that can be heated or cooled, powered lift gate and Apple CarPlay.
Those that purchase the Porsche GTS will get a V6, dual turbo engine that can generate 434 horsepower with the ability to blaze from zero to sixty in just 4.1 seconds. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is also equipped with a V6 engine, but it is 3.6 liter and only capable of generating 393 horsepower, which takes 8 seconds to accelerate from zero to sixty.
The Bottom Line
While the two SUVs are similarly equipped safety wise, the Porsche Macan has larger touchscreens and a substantial performance advantage. Additionally, the Cherokee has an issue where the driver’s rear view is partially blocked, which requires parking sensors and a camera just to mitigate, which is another example of poor design and the reason the Porsche Macan wins.
