2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. 2019 Ford Explorer

New SUVs need to tackle a range of daily duties, from taking your family to school to towing a boat to your yearly fishing trip. It’s important that you take home an SUV that can do it all. Two of the most famous names in the game are the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Ford Explorer. These midsize SUVs are both strong, capable SUVs, but the Grand Cherokee has more to offer Rogers drivers.

Off-Road Capabilities

When it comes to off-road performance, the only the Jeep Grand Cherokee is available with dedicated technology and features. Boasting a Trail Rated® badge, the Grand Cherokee is available with 4×4 system for superior traction when off Anoka roads. The Grand Cherokee is also available with a much more comprehensive range of engines, with the flagship being found in the Trackhawk® trim level. The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® boasts a Supercharged 6.2L V8 engine that’s capable of 707 horsepower.

The Grand Cherokee models are also protected and specially sealed to ford up to 20 inches of water! So when you’re ready to take on the toughest terrain, use the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System to adapt your Grand Cherokee to the toughest trails Buffalo has to offer.

While the Explorer offers its own version of a four-wheel drive system, Intelligent 4WD, it’s not quite as advanced as the system found in the Grand Cherokee. And while the Ford Explorer also offers a comparable Terrain Management System™ with Hill Descent Control ™, only the Jeep can offer truly guaranteed off-road performance with the Trail Rated® badge.

Interior Features

The Uconnect® infotainment systems found in the Grand Cherokee interior are designed to keep you connected safely. Access the information you need without taking your hands off the wheel and your eyes off the road. From Apple Carplay™ and Android Auto® support for easy smartphone integration, to available navigation, you’re set with Uconnect®! You also have access to a premium sound system from Harman Kardon® so you can enjoy incredible concert-quality sound. The Explorer offers FordPass™ Connect with a Wi-Fi Hotspot and SYNC® 3 standard, but our experts agree you’ll prefer the user experience offered by Uconnect®.
