You can’t choose an off-road SUV without first comparing the Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer. Both models are rugged and capable, but the 2019 Grand Cherokee has a lot more to offer San Leandro drivers at the end of the day. Don’t believe us? Compare them in-depth, below!

Explorer or Grand Cherokee: Off-Road Capabilities

Only the Jeep Grand Cherokee is backed by the infamous Jeep off-road capabilities. It wears the Trail Rated® badge, so you can rest assured its 4×4 system offers optimal traction on Walnut Creek roads. You’ll also get to choose from a myriad of engine options, including a supercharged 6.2L V8 that can deliver up to 707 hp! You’ll always have peace of mind knowing the Grand Cherokee was built to handle any condition, including up to 20 inches of water. Utilize the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System to power through any weather conditions.

The Explorer does offer a 4WD system, Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System™. In order to get any of the 4×4 capabilities offered by this system, you’ll have to pay more for an upgraded package. In the Grand Cherokee, comparable features come standard.

Explorer or Grand Cherokee: Interior Options

Standard Uconnect® in the Grand Cherokee will ensure you’re always connected during Fremont commutes. You’ll get Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, and a Harman Kardon® sound system is sure to impress your passengers.

In the Explorer, you’ll get FordPass™ Connect with Wi-Fi Hotspot and SYNC® 3 standard, but if you want any additional technology and convenience features, it will require an upgrade.
