Both have been trusted by hardworking Americans in Brattleboro for decades. Having trouble choosing between the Explorer or Grand Cherokee? Compare the Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer with help from the team at our dealership near Swanzey!

Performance Specs

When choosing between either the Explorer or Grand Cherokee, you’ll notice both are available with advanced performance and capability. However, our team is quick to point out that only the Jeep Grand Cherokee boasts a Trail Rated® badge, signaling the Jeep® Brand 4×4 and guaranteed off-road capability. Capability includes the ability to ford up to 20 inches of water, and offers capability on snow, sand, mud, gravel, and more.

A range of engine options are offered on the Jeep Grand Cherokee, culminating in the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk®, which boasts a 707 hp Supercharged 6.2L V8 engine. Grand Cherokee Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System will also help you get more done.

The Ford Explorer offers its own a four-wheel drive system with its Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System™. Features include: 

  • Hill Descent Control ™
  • 180-degree camera with split-view and washer
  • AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control ™
  • LED Headlamps with Auto High Beams

While the Ford Explorer is available with a 365 hp 3.5L twin-turbo EcoBoost® V6, it simply cannot hold a candle to the top-level Jeep Grand Cherokee. When you compare the Jeep Grand Cherokee vs. Ford Explorer, the Grand Cherokee will benefit those looking for advanced power.

Interior Features

When it comes to connectivity and comfort, you can’t really go wrong with the Explorer or Grand Cherokee. Both offer Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, premium leather upholstery, and available premium sound.

The main difference between the two lies in the infotainment systems. While the Ford Explorer comes with SYNC® technology, the experts at our dealership near Walpole prefer the user-friendly interface that’s found on the Uconnect® infotainment system in the Grand Cherokee.
