When you’re faced with two SUVs like the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe, which would you pick? This can be a loaded question for Saline, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor, Michigan, shoppers, so we thought we’d lend a hand.

Get ready for a journey with LaFontaine Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) of Saline that whisks you away to see which car outperforms the other. If you’re ready, let’s go!



Jeep Grand Cherokee Interior Seating

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Hyundai Santa Fe: Interior

Party of five or seven? The Jeep can host both with either two rows or three, while the Hyundai sports only two rows. Plus, more passenger volume of 152 cubic feet comes in the Jeep. The Hyundai offers 111.5 cubic feet.

Get comfy because you’ll relish the exquisite comfort of the Jeep model’s available 16-way adjustable front seats with massage settings. Nothing like that can be found in the upgraded Hyundai 8-way power driver’s seat.

Available 3-Zone Temperature Control enhances the comfort in the Jeep while an available dual automatic temperature control system cools off the Hyundai.

As you may guess, the cargo area provides more room at 84.6 cubic feet, if the passenger volume is any indication. With the Hyundai, it tops out at 72.1 cubic feet.


Jeep Grand Cherokee Tech

A dashboard should be user-friendly, and the Jeep accommodates both front riders. Your front-seat companion also gets a 10.1-inch passenger screen. This enables control of the available 19-speaker McIntosh® sound system.

Unfortunately, the Hyundai does not have a passenger screen, so it’s up to the driver to set up the tunes. You’ll have an available 12-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System to do it.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Hyundai Santa Fe: Safety

A feast of cutting-edge safety systems populates your Jeep. You’ll be astounded by the upscale innovation. Several of these available devices do not even exist for the Hyundai Santa Fe. They include:

  • Hands-Free Active Driving Assist
  • Intersection Collision Assist
  • Interior Rear-Facing Camera
  • Night Vision

Although the Hyundai gives you all that they’ve got with their SmartSense battery of systems, these Jeep ones hit it out of the park. Hands-free driving puts the future right in front of you, and your Grand Cherokee controls it all.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Hyundai Santa Fe: Performance

Three engines can be chosen for the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Its most powerful engine, the available 2.0L I4 Turbo PHEV, produces 375 horsepower supported by 470 lb-ft of torque. The Hyundai’s best offering, the 2.5L Turbocharged GDI/MPI 4-cylinder engine, produces 281 horsepower with 311 lb-ft of torque.

When you start considering which roads you travel and what kind of traction you prefer, look at the available powertrains. The Jeep supplies either a 2-wheel drive or an optional 4-wheel drive. Front-wheel drive comes standard in the Hyundai, or choose the available HTRAC all-wheel drive.

Now you may want to see how much towing capacity you need. How much does your trailer hold? Will you be taking your boat to the marina, or do you want to load up bikes for a weekend getaway to the lake?

The Jeep can tow a maximum of 7,200 pounds. When properly equipped, the Hyundai tows up to 3,500 pounds. Decide what’s best for your lifestyle.
