Interior Comparison

The 2023 Discovery provides seven full-sized seats for adults in a body under 200 inches long, something that the 2023 Grand Cherokee cannot do in standard wheelbase specification. While this results in marginally less maximum legroom in the first and second rows, the 2023 Discovery can offer better headroom than the 2023 Grand Cherokee.

The 2023 Discovery and 2023 Grand Cherokee offer the expected standard features of dual-zone climate control with rear air vents, Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and a powered driver seat. However, the Discovery also offers a third climate control zone for the rear and a Meridian sound system as standard. It's also got a larger 11-4-inch touch screen for the infotainment system. The 2023 Grand Cherokee's screen is just 10.1 inches in size. The 2023 Grand Cherokee can be optioned with a McIntosh sound system and passenger information display.

In a side-by-side comparison, the 2023 Discovery's cabin is noticeably more luxurious than the 2023 Grand Cherokee. The new Discovery comes with materials of a higher standard, soft-touch surfaces, and a broader range of colors and trims to choose from.

The 2023 Discovery offers 45 cubic feet of luggage space in its five-seat configuration. That is more than the 37.7 cubic feet offered by the 2023 Grand Cherokee. With all seven seats deployed, the 2023 Discovery can still offer 9.1 cubic feet.

The 2023 Grand Cherokee comes with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that puts out 293 horsepower through the same ZF 8-speed automatic transmission as the 2023 Discovery.

You can also option a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that serves up 360 horsepower if you desire.
