Shoppers from Tulsa to Broken Arrow stop by the dealership every day in search of the ultimate SUV for Collinsville roads. However, if you want to experience the very best in modern performance, should you go for the Explorer or Grand Cherokee? The two have their own advantages and disadvantages, but overall, we feel that you’ll get the better driving experience out of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Check out our head-to-head comparison below and then contact us with any questions!

Basic Performance

Between the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs Ford Explorer, you’ll find two different experiences for the base model. Of course, the two share some similarities. Rear-wheel drive is standard for both models, while smart all-wheel drive systems are optional. The two have similar specs with both cranking out around 300 hp. And while the Ford Explorer has 5 additional hp, it utilizes an inline-4 engine. The Jeep Grand Cherokee utilizes a V6, which is popular for its quiet power and reliability. Additionally, the Jeep will cost you over $4,500 less than the Ford. In fact, you can upgrade to the base Laredo to the Upland trim and still pay less than the entry-level Ford!

Upgraded Options

So the Ford Explorer may have a 5-hp advantage when it comes to performance, but that advantage quickly disappears as you look down the Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup. The Ford Explorer offers V6 engines of its own, as well as a hybrid option, but the Grand Cherokee offers high-octane options like the rugged Trailhawk with Quadra-Drive® II 4×4 System and the supercharged Trackhawk and SRT trims with 707 hp! The Jeep Grand Cherokee also boasts a best-in-class towing that outperforms the Ford Explorer by 1,600 pounds. And don’t forget about all the Jeep exclusive features:

  • Trail Rated® testing
  • Jeep® Brand 4×4 systems
  • ProTech I and II Package
  • And more!
