While both vehicles are midsize crossovers, the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse is a bit larger overall in order to accommodate the third row of seating. It measures 204.3 inches in overall length, which is about 17 feet. The Grand Cherokee, on the other hand, measures 189.8 inches, which is under 16 feet. A big part of what makes the Grand Cherokee so popular is its iconic and unmistakable Jeep style.

Both vehicles come standard with 18-inch alloy wheels and offer wheel sizes as large as 20 inches.
