Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer

The Grand Cherokee stands out while on the road, thanks to the patented Jeep brand seven-slot grille, distinguishing it from other plain-looking SUVs like the Explorer. There are several other differences that make the Grand Cherokee the obvious choice.

  • The available Jeep Quadra-Trac I 4x4 System easily beats out the competition's standard four-wheel drive system, and the class-exclusive standard eight-speed automatic transmission gives you a better drive than the six-speed transmission in the Explorer.
  • With features like the leather-wrapped steering wheel, the Grand Cherokee also comes with a standard fold-flat front passenger seat, providing more available cargo space inside, and a Graphic Sound Equalizer makes the most out of you audio system.
  • While both SUVs feature standard LED tail lamps, the Grand Cherokee comes standard with fully automatic headlamps and fog lamps, and the standard aluminum wheels are a clear upgrade over the plastic and steel wheels found on the Ford model.

Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Toyota Highlander

Similarly, there are several great advantages the Grand Cherokee has over the Toyota Highlander. See a few reasons why the Grand Cherokee is the smart choice if you're looking for a new SUV in the Colchester, CT area.

  • The Grand Cherokee dominates the competition when it comes to towing capacity, with its 6,200 lbs well above the Highlander's 2,000 lbs.
  • As far as safety and security is concerned, the Grand Cherokee features a Theft Deterrent System and Rain Brake Support, both which are absent in the Highlander.
  • For additional value, the Grand Cherokee is available with a 100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, while the Highlander's warranty is only up to 60,000 miles.
