What is the Difference Between....
 
OK, had a discussion with someone today about getting a "new" vehicle and I was told that there is a difference between the Cherokee and a Grand Cherokee.
I thought that they were the same. (eg. All Cherokee's are Grand Cherokees.
Duhhhhhhhh....please advise.
Thank you.

ZJ: Grand Cherokee 93-98 (Gen1)
WJ: Grand Cherokee 99-04 (Gen2)

Or is this just fantasy????????

He's new. At least he's asking instead of going around and calling an XJ and RJ.... that rustled my jimmies.

RJ= Real jeep ha ha, its a huge pet peve of mine when im looking for xj stuff and every time i see an ad for cherokee "pick your part" and it ends up being a grand. an cherokee is nothing like a grand cherokee the grands tend to have more of your luxury type options and are a bit larger, had option for a v8 simply google it and you will see what the differences are, ive owned both and like my xj way more it rides a little stiffer but has been 1000x more reliable and goes places my zj only wished it could have.

Grand Cherokees have COIL SPRINGS at each wheel. Cherokees (XJs) have LEAF springs on the rear wheels.

Grand Cherokees can come with a V8, and have different interior and exterior designs.

And I MAY be mistaken about this, BUT, didn't Grands more often than not have the FULL time case and XJs the PART time case (more often than not)??

this is a grand cherokee(zj). don't know if you can tell on the pic, but they tend to be more rounded with more aerodynamic lines.

as far as i know, there were only three motors offered in xj's: 2.5l 4 cyl( i know they were used at least to 95), early models had a 2.8 v6 chevy motor, then the 4.0l 6 cyl. zj's: 4.0 was the smallest, then they had a 5.2 v8(318 ci?) and for one year even had a 5.9 v8(360 ci?) the wj was the next model grand(that is where they went from one big, usually dull or yellow, headlight on each side to a more rounded double style. i think they also had an option for a 4.7 v8, but don't quote me on that. the zj and wj both have a lot of creature comforts to them and run down the interstate a little better then the xj, but the zj's have a lot of electrical gremlins that will pop there head up and make the lights do stupid things. xj's are generally cheaper and have a ton more aftermarket support.
